About IIT Kanpur

Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur is one of the premier institutions established by the Government of India. The aim of the Institute is to provide meaningful education, to conduct original research of the highest standard and to provide leadership in technological innovation for the industrial growth of the country.

IIT-Kanpur is located on the Grand Trunk Road, 15 km west of Kanpur City and measures close to 420 hectares. This land was gifted by the Government of Uttar Pradesh in 1960 and by March 1963 the Institute had moved to its current location.

IIT Kanpur has been striving to develop itself into an institution of excellence in education and research in consonance with the contemporary and future needs of India.

IIT Kanpur Courses Offered :

Undergraduate Programs :

4-year B. Tech and 5-year Integrated M. Sc. :

The 4-year B. Tech. and 5-year Integrated M. Sc. undergraduate programmes have two components.

The first component is the core program common to all students and is carefully planned to give the students a strong base of general education in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering Sciences, Technical Arts, and Humanities and Social Sciences.

The second component of the undergraduate programme includes professional courses and a project in the chosen branch of specialisation.

The course structure in the core curriculum provides for large lecture classes with tutorial discussion hours and laboratory sessions in smaller goups.

The professional programme, while providing the flexibility of having laboratory courses often independent of the lecture classes, culminates in a project involving the application of modern analysis and design techniques.

Two year M. Sc. :

A limited number of candidates are also admitted to the two-year M. Sc. programme in the disciplines of Chemistry, Mathematics, Statistics and Physics. These are open to those who have earned the B. Sc. degree in the relevant discipline.
