Overview

Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB) is a public technical university and research institute in Powai, Mumbai. Established in 1958, the second of its kind, IIT Bombay was the first to be set up with foreign assistance. In 1961, the Parliament decreed the IITs as “Institutes of National Importance”. Since then, IITB has grown from strength to strength to emerge as one of the top technical universities in the world.

Since its establishment in Powai, the institute has physically expanded to include more than 584 major buildings with a combined area of more than 2.2 square kilometers.

IITB is known for its four-year, five-year and two-year programmes and is recognised worldwide as a leader in the field of engineering education and research. Reputed for the outstanding calibre of students graduating from its undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, the institute attracts the best students from the country for its bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programmes.
