About the Institute:

The campus for the Indian Institute of Technology Goa (IIT Goa) will be developed at Loliem, a quiet town in Canacona taluka in the southernmost tip of Goa. It is bounded by Galgibag River in the North, village of Poinguinim along the East, Uttar Kannada district of Karnataka state in the South and Arabian Sea to the West. Historically, Loliem was a village of metallurgical artisans who made idols of gods and goddesses using aluminum and iron during the reign of the Kadambas of Banavasi (345 – 525 CE) and was, therefore, called Lohahalli. Subsequently, when Goa became a Portuguese colony, the name of this important village was changed to Loliem and it had a checkpost for road transit to other parts of India until 1961, when Goa was incorporated into the Indian Union. Loliem has a unique mix of the rolling hills of the Western Ghats, the slice of the coast, and an interior hilly, plateau region. The 300 acre new IIT Goa campus is expected to come up in a couple of years and is located about 88 km south of the capital city of Panaji.  

 

However, the interim campus of IIT Goa is located at Goa Engineering College (GEC) at Farmagudi, which is about 78 km away from the proposed IIT Goa Campus site.  This temporary campus of IIT Goa at GEC is fully equipped with class rooms, laboratories, and modern hostel buildings. This campus is expected to serve the needs of IIT Goa for the first couple of years.

 

Mentored by IIT Bombay, the academic activities of IIT Goa are well tuned to expose the student to a vibrant academic culture and bring out the best in every student. The contribution of this Institute would be to educate young people to solve the real problems faced by our countrymen using the technical knowledge they are imparted during their formative years.

Academic Structure:

Academic Structure:

The Institute offers three undergraduate (B. Tech.) programs in engineering. IIT Goa follows a semester system. An academic year (July-April) consists of two semesters, each of approximately 16 weeks duration. The first semester begins in the last week of July and ends by the last week of November. The second semester starts in the first week of January and ends by the last week of April. In each of the two semesters of the first year, a student is required to register for the relevant courses listed in the curriculum for that semester.

 

The Institute follows a credit system. Credits are allotted to various courses depending upon the number of lectures, tutorials and laboratory hours per week. The student’s performance in a course is continuously evaluated throughout the semester and culminates in the award of a Grade on a 10- point scale. Performance in a semester is evaluated in terms of the weighted average of grade points secured in all the courses registered in that semester, which is known as Semester Performance Index (SPI). A Cumulative Performance Index (CPI) is the weighted average of the grade points obtained in all the courses registered by the student since the time of joining the Institute.

 

To students admitted through JEE (Advanced) 2016, IIT Goa offers the B.Tech. undergraduate program. The B.Tech. programs consist of eight semesters spread over four years. During the first semester all branches will have a common curriculum

Rules For Change Branch:

Students are eligible to apply for change of branch/programme after completing the first two semesters.

     (b)  no backlog at the end of the first year

     (c)  secured a CPI of:

                        - at least 8 for general and OBC category students;

                         and at least 7 for SC, ST and PD category students.

(ii) the strength in branch A, from which a change is being sought, does not fall below its sanctioned strength by more than 25%.

(iii) there is no student with higher CPI who is currently being denied a change of branch to B due to rule (c).
