About the Institute:
The Indian Institute of Technology Ropar started functioning from the academic year 2008-09 from the campus of IIT Delhi, the mentor institute. The Institute currently operates from its Transit Campuses, one from Government Polytechnic College for Women and the second from NIELIT, in Ropar. The foundation stone laying ceremony was held on 24 February 2009. The Indian Institute of Technology Ropar was registered under the Societies' Registration Act 1860 on 29 July 2009. The transit campus of IIT Ropar was inaugurated on 19 August 2009. The Institute will be relocated to its own campus, which is spread over 500 acres on the banks of the river Satluj, in July 2018.

The Indian Institute of Technology Ropar is ranked 22nd in the engineering category in NIRF 2018 (National Institutional Ranking Framework). IIT Ropar is committed to providing state-of-the-art technical education in a variety of fields. The Institute is facilitating transmission of knowledge in keeping with the latest developments in pedagogy. At present, the Institute offers the degree of Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science & Engineering; Electrical Engineering; Mechanical Engineering; Civil Engineering; Chemical Engineering; and Metallurgical & Materials Engineering. It offers the MSc degree in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. The Institute also offers the MS degree in Computer Science & Engineering, and Electrical Engineering. It offers the degree of Master of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering; Electrical Engineering; Mechanical Engineering; and Biomedical Engineering (the centre for biomedical engineering is an interdisciplinary centre). All the departments of the Institute offer a doctoral degree. The Institute has held six convocations so far. The 2014 entry batch of UG students will receive their degrees in the seventh convocation to be held this year. IIT Ropar has also awarded several PhD degrees. Presently the Institute has 641 UG students, 162 PG students and 332 PhD students.

The overall academic system of IIT Ropar is designed to provide science-based engineering education that will produce quality engineers and scientists. IIT Ropar has implemented a new curriculum from 2017. The curriculum provides broad based knowledge and simultaneously builds a temper for lifelong learning and exploration. A set of science and general engineering courses forms part of the syllabus of the first year undergraduate students. These courses provide a foundation for further discipline specific topics. 

The Training & Placement Cell, which has now been renamed as Career Development and Corporate Relations Centre, is actively involved in organizing practical training for the undergraduate students and has been playing a catalytic role in finding placements for its final year students. IIT Ropar has undertaken the task of redefining its vision and mission and of putting a strategic plan to achieve them into action. It is also working on overhauling its UG programs and has introduced new PG streams. IIT Ropar aims to promote research in interdisciplinary areas.

The Institute also undertakes a number of research and consultancy projects that are sponsored by various funding agencies, including the Government and Industry. The Institute has taken major research activities in the fields of national importance such   as non-conventional energy, sensors, drug delivery, materials synthesis and their modification, image processing, cloud  networks, robotics, pattern recognition, renewable energy systems, microelectronics and nano-devices, mathematical biology, fluid dynamics, pure mathematics, quantum optics and quantum matter physics, ion beam physics, renewable energy, nanophotonics and metamaterials, surface patterning, sustainable energy, biomechanics, nanofluids,  complex  fluids,  nanocomposites, Neuro-cognition, financial mathematics and markets, phonetics, etc. The Institute provides ample funds to the departments and faculty members for the upgradation of laboratories and creation of research facilities. This has enabled   our faculty members to take up research projects in frontier and emerging areas of science and technology.

Institute has a counseling cell to monitor the mental well being of the students. Its mission is to promote well-being, aiding to develop better understanding of the self, to grow both intellectually and emotionally, to be more satisfied and productive and improve the depth and quality of your life. To hike sound mental health, we provide help in dealing with emotional and behavioural problems like guilt, anxiety, stress, lack of confidence, low self esteem, depression and internet addiction of any sort, dependency, personal problems in relationship like codependency, rejection, separation homesickness etc. Counseling Cell does fostering and inculcating life skills to make better adjustments and enriching healthy relationships.
The temporary campuses of IIT Ropar are well-equipped with all required facilities. Classrooms fitted with multimedia, faculty offices and administrative wing are all in place. There are separate hostels for boys and girls. These hostels are equipped with modern mess units. The construction of the new campus is moving at a fast pace. Campus construction is expected to be completed by 2018. Some departments of the Institute will start functioning from the Main campus from July 2018. Faculty recruitment, setting up of laboratories and other support facilities are also in full swing. 

IIT Ropar community has undertaken an important exercise of developing the Mission, Vision and Strategic Plan for the coming years. The exercise was carried out in active consultation with Indian Institute of Management Calcutta who have got technical expertise in this area. A participative bottom up approach was followed in formulating the Mission, Vision and Strategic Plan. Inputs from the entire IIT Ropar fraternity, MHRD, Board of Governors, Alumni and Industries were considered in the process. Finally we have arrived at the following Motto, Mission and Vision statements for our institute.

Quintessence (Intra Institute Technical Fest, IIT Ropar) was organised by the Board of Science and Technology on the dates of Nov 4-6, 2016. On the day of Nov 4, Poster design(Online Event) was organised wherein students competed for the best brochure cover page for Advitiya 2017 . The major Attractions of the Event were the Technical Walk-Through,  Talk by Mr. Ram Subramanian and Various other competitions organised by technical clubs under BOST.

We organised this event with the objective to motivate nearby school students towards a scientific culture. It was a great opportunity for them to come & experience cutting edge technologies, some of which are only present in few places of our country.

During the Technical Walkthrough, many Labs of our Institute were open to visitors.


IIT Ropar, the institute that took the technical world by storm ever since its establishment in 2008 has climbed its way up the ladder and has been marching steadily towards making a global presence with its cutting edge research facilities and one of a kind UG program. To follow on the institute’s value statement we organized its very first edition of the annual Techno-Management Festival “Advitiya” spanned more than 60 hours of intense competitions and fun events.  

Advitiya kicked off on 22nd March with inauguration whose attendees constituted stalwarts in the field of technology like Mr. Tapan Misra – Director/Distinguished Scientist of ISRO applications center and entrepreneurs like Varun Agarwal, Co-founder – Alma Mater.

Advitiya witnessed a wide range of scientific and technical activities and novel events from upcoming fields like Coding, Robotics, Finance, Design and Entrepreneurship with prizes worth as high as 4 lakh Rupees.

The fest was not only a platform for intoxicating mix of talent from colleges, but from schools and companies also by organizing a Technical Exhibition and Open Day where in, all the state-of-art labs and cutting edge research infrastructure was open to display for all the students and companies visited us. As an icing on the cherry, the fest was concluded with a comedy night starring Sahil Shah of EIC Comedy and Rahul Subramanian.


IIT Ropar organised BAJA SAE INDIA-2018 for the first time in North India in March 2018. It was highly successful and had participation from all over the country.

Board of Sports Activities (BOSA)

We have a Board of Sports Activities (BOSA) which supports on annual basis, inter hostel sports activities.
