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 foundation stone laying ceremony was held on 24 February 2009. The Indian Institute of Technology Ropar was initially registered under the Societies' Registration Act 1860 on 29 July 2009. Subsequently, the Institute has been established by Act of Parliament namely, the Institutes of Technology Act (Amendment) Act 2012 (No. 34 of 2012). The Institute has shifted to its permanent campus in 2018 and currently operates from its permanent campus. The permanent campus of IIT Ropar is spread across 501 acres of land located at Birla Seed Farms, Rupnagar in the lap of nature at the banks of river Satluj. The Institute has been awarded the 5 Star GRIHA (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment) rating, one of the highest national ratings for Green Buildings.

While the master plan is supposed to accommodate 10,000 students, the academic block is already set up for 2,500 students in the first phase. A total of 2,15,739 square meters of area is dedicated for academic and administration blocks along with accommodation for staff and faculty along with sports and hostel facilities for the students

Alumni relations

Our Institute has been actively working to sustain the bonding and to ensure greater participation of its Alumni in its academic and extra activities through various initiatives in association with the IIT Ropar Alumni Association (founded in Feb. 2013). Some of the initiatives are as follows:

 

1.           Alumni Student Mentorship Program (ASMP):It’s a platform for tapping in the multitude of experience and knowledge of the Alumni for the benefit of the students and Alumni alike. As distinguished IIT Ropar graduates, Alumni hold a wealth of information and knowledge that current students can benefit from. Their expertise and advice are more valuable to students wanting to sail a similar kind of boat ranging from MBA (India, Abroad), MS, various kinds of jobs, civil services, entrepreneurship, etc.

 

2.           Hangout with Alumni:Conducting regular Alumni-Student interaction sessions including webinars, podcasts, and in-person meets, when feasible, to bridge the gap between them and allow the experiences, learnings, exam preparation strategies, and above all, their valuable college memories, to reach the existing students.           In this, we have Alumni speak about various topics based on students’ responses and needs.

 

3.           Alumni Student Relationship Cell:The ASRC has been linked with the placement and internship team of IIT Ropar, for facilitating more and better opportunities to the students through alumni in the form of internships, live projects, and placements. The vast alumni network spread over hundreds of corporate giants brings home the opportunity to call them for hiring at our campus.

 

4.           Recreational Activities: The Alumni office and ASRC  plans to regularly engage with the Alumni via recreational activities like inter-year online games and championships, organized in collaboration with various clubs of IIT Ropar. These initiatives are meant to foster healthy and vibrant relationships with these much precious jewels of the institute.

 

5.           Alumni Awards:To recognize, appreciate and encourage our emerging young alumni members for their leadership potential and professional and/or societal impactful contributions and       accomplishments, to enhance the awareness of their achievements and contributions, and to            strengthen our bonding with emerging alumni members, Emerging Young Alumni Awards are       instituted.

The Alumni have shown a lot of enthusiasm in participating in these initiatives and to keep working towards building a brand for our young institute ­ IIT Ropar.

Recreational/Extra Curricular activities:

In order to take care of various students activities, we have a Student Affairs Section with the following functional units:

1.          Board of Hostel Affairs (BOHA)

2.         Board of Cultural Activities (BOCA)

3.         Board of Science & Technology (BOST)

4.         Board of Sports Activities (BOSA)

5.         Board of Literary Activities (BOLA)
