Indian Institute of Technology Goa

It has been an established tradition amongst educational institutions, in India and abroad, to have a motto that illustrates the belief of the institution. In India mostly, the motto is taken from Sanskrit, as it is the repository of ancient wisdom and knowledge. Following the same illustrious tradition IIT Goa has chosen ‘Vidya Vinayen Deepyate’ ‘Knowledge shines with humility’ to be the motto of the institute. It was very graciously suggested by Prof. Ramasubramaniam. The motto truly represents our commitment towards inculcating holistic education and human values in our students.

Since time immemorial India has been a knowledge civilization. The quest for knowledge has been one of the basic characteristics of the Indian ethos. Indians in ancient times undertook in-depth studies in areas of Metaphysics, Philosophy, Logic, Linguistics, Astronomy, Mathematics, Medicine and others. The history of our intellectual traditions is presented in our rich literature starting from the Rig Veda.

India has always had a very diverse and open intellectual culture from ‘Samkhya’ to ‘Nyaya’, from ‘Mimamsa’ to ‘Carvaka/Lokayata’. One thing that is remarkable about Indian knowledge tradition is not just ‘tolerance’ but ‘acceptance’ of diversity in thoughts, deeds and life style with humility. The civilizational values of inclusion, goodwill and humility were equally emphasised on.

“Namanti phalino vriksha, Namanti gunino jana:”

Shushka vriksha ca: murkhash:ca:, na namanti kadachana”

“Good (wise) people bow down (have humility), just like a tree laden with fruits bows, Unwise people never bow (have no humility), just like a dead dry tree”

Our motto is inspired by the same Indian knowledge tradition of hard work, sincerity, openness of ideas, intellectual rigour and, at the same time, our pride in its diversity, civility and humility. Rather than blindly following the plethora of influences from anywhere our students will be critical, they will discover their inner strength by inculcating the same principles of knowledge imparted by our ancestors and follow their footsteps in humility towards greater heights -

“May the light within you illuminate all”


Academic Structure:

The Institute offers three undergraduate (B. Tech.) programs in engineering. IIT Goa follows a semester system. An academic year (July-April) consists of two semesters, each of approximately 16 weeks duration. The first semester begins in the last week of July and ends by the last week of November. The second semester starts in the first week of January and ends by the last week of April. In each of the two semesters of the first year, a student is required to register for the relevant courses listed in the curriculum for that semester.

The Institute follows a credit system. Credits are allotted to various courses depending upon the number of lectures, tutorials and laboratory hours per week. The student’s performance in a course is continuously evaluated throughout the semester and culminates in the award of a Grade on a 10- point scale. Performance in a semester is evaluated in terms of the weighted average of grade points secured in all the courses registered in that semester, which is known as Semester Performance Index (SPI). A Cumulative Performance Index (CPI) is the weighted average of the grade points obtained in all the courses registered by the student since the time of joining the Institute.

To students admitted through JEE (Advanced) 2016, IIT Goa offers the B.Tech. undergraduate program. The B.Tech. programs consist of eight semesters spread over four years. During the first semester all branches will have a common curriculum
