  About IIT Gandhinagar

IIT Gandhinagar (IITGN) is embarking on an ambitious expedition to be the best institution in India and among the best in the world by thinking beyond traditional boundaries. For instance, we believe that engineering education and scholarship is incomplete without perspectives of pure sciences, social sciences, and humanities.

IITGN has been rapidly growing since it was established in 2008 and has placed itself as a ‘thought leader’ in higher education. IITGN encourages innovation and experimentation in every facet of education while expecting excellence from its students, staff, and faculty. The institute is quickly building up its world class facilities and faculty and fosters a culture enabling free thought, responsibility, innovation, and excellence.

IITGN is currently located in Chandkheda, which is about a 15-minute drive from both Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar, Gujarat. Ahmedabad is one of the oldest living cities in India, known both for a rich cultural pastas well as state-of-the-art infrastructure, thriving industries, and many modern amenities. It is also the hub of prestigious academic and research institutes such as the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad and the National Institute of Design.
IITGN is in the process of building its permanent campus in Gandhinagar, the capital of Gujarat, a city that expresses the state’s vision of modernity. Despite operating from a temporary campus, IITGN has excellent facilities in terms of classrooms, laboratory spaces, faculty offices, etc. IIT Gandhinagar currently offers a 4-year B. Tech. program in Chemical, Electrical, Civil and Mechanical Engineering and an M. Tech. program in Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical Engineering and in Materials Science. It also offers Ph.D. progam in several disciplines in Engineering (Chemical, Civil, Computer Science, Electrical, Mechanical, and Metallurgy & Materials Science), Sciences (Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics) and Humanities & Social Sciences (Cognitive Science, English, Philosophy, Sociology and others), and has recently started M.Sc. programs in Mathematics, Cognitive Science, and Chemistry.
