Be the First to Review
Description

Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are autonomous public institutions of national importance for higher education in engineering, science and technology. Starting with IIT Kharagpur in 1951, there are 23 such Institutes of excellence all over India today, and IIT Palakkad belongs to this prestigious group. Celebrated as a major granary of Kerala, Palakkad is the gateway to the State from the North in the form of the nearly 40-kilometre break in the Western Ghats, called the Palakkad Gap. The place  is known for its rich traditions, great historical events and personalities connected with it, and its sylvan surroundings, especially the Silent Valley rain forests and the famed palmyra trees.

IIT Palakkad was announced by the Government of India in 2014. We began with a headstart  in the very next academic year, 2015-16, with the support of our mentor Institute (IIT Madras). The academic program was launched by admitting students to the B. Tech. course in the disciplines of Civil Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Our Institute can already boast of a vibrant student and faculty community drawn from different parts of the country; it has truly emerged as a microcosm of India. As of now, we are located at two campuses, viz,the Ahalia integrated campus (Temporary Campus) and the Nila Campus at Kanjikode. Within a short span of two years, we were able to start Masters and Doctoral programs in Engineering, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. In the current academic year, we started M.Sc courses in Physics and Chemistry, and M.Tech in Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
