Director's Message


Indian Institute of Technology Patna is one of the new IITs established by an Act of Parliament in 2008. The city of Patna, the capital of the State of Bihar, has historical significance. It was a knowledge centre in the past which attracted visitors and scholars from many places all around the world. Some of the historical legends from this region include Lord Gautam Buddha, Lord Mahavir, Guru Govind Singh, the famous astronomer Aryabhata and the first President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad.

Currently IIT Patna has 3 schools with 10 departments, namely, Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Chemical & Biochemical Engineering and Materials Science & Engineering in the School of Engineering and Technology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics in the School of Basic Sciences and Humanities and Social Sciences in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. IIT Patna offers B. Tech programme in Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Also it has started Ph. D programme in all ten disciplines mentioned above. IIT Patna is developing fast and would like to come up as an institute of excellence promoting intelligent, hard working and technically curious minds. We have already developed state-of-the-art infrastructure including classrooms and laboratories in imparting world class education. We have a wide range of research programmes, and many curricular and extra curricular events to ignite the minds of B.Tech students. In order to raise the quality of our education and research, we have already signed MoUs with leading international universities and some more MoUs are in the process of finalization. We are promoting exchange programmes with the best schools in the world, and also a large number of scientists and technologists have visited IIT Patna campus during the last four years. I envision developing this institute as one of the top institutes of overall education.

We plan to train our students in various industries so that knowledge gained in the academic institute is fruitfully utilized. In this regard, I would welcome the industries in India and abroad to come forward and train our students so that they can be the future of India and the world at large and IIT Patna can produce competent engineers and scientists with good human values. I would also like to invite all prospective trainers and employers to visit IIT Patna and interact with our students and professors and assess the training and development programmes in IIT Patna. If interested in making an early e-placement/training talks, please let us know the preferred dates. Students have also prepared a booklet to help you understand our academic programmes. I look forward to your whole hearted support and cooperation.

We have 6 Engineering departments, namely, Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Chemical & Biochemical Engineering, and Materials Science & Engineering along with departments for Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Humanities and Social Sciences. The institute offers B.Tech., M.Tech., M.Sc., and Ph.D. programs in these disciplines. All UG and PG programs have up-to-date contents and opportunities for industrial training and research. Our students have taken part and proven their mettle in several national and international events, both technical and cultural. They are active throughout the year in running about a dozen clubs on campus, each focusing on a different issue, ranging from social upliftment of rural areas to robotics and artificial intelligence. The students also organise two annuals events on the campus, Anwesha – an intercollegiate cultural competition and Celesta – a techno-management event.

IIT Patna has committed its resources to the upbringing of well-trained students capable of serving the community. Towards this, we have established excellent teaching and research laboratories, attracted faculty members with international exposure, provided continuous support to technical, cultural, sports, and literary events, and signed MoUs with industrial and academic collaborators. As an institute, we yearn to trigger the creativity and intellect of students, along with imparting soft skills such as teamwork and communication.
