IIT(BHU), formerly known as the Institute of Technology, was a part of the Banaras Hindu University has been an internationally acknowledged seat of learning has been established in 1919 by the great visionary and patriot, Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya Ji. Engineering Education in Banaras Hindu University commenced as early as in 1919 with the establishment of Banaras Engineering College (BENCO). The University has also pioneered engineering education by being the first in the country to start degree courses in Mining, Metallurgy, Ceramic Engineering and Pharmaceutics with the establishment of the College of Mining and Metallurgy and the College of Technology in the years 1923 and 1932 respectively, in order to meet the then requirements of the going to be Independent India.In 1969 these three colleges were amalgamated to form the Institute of Technology. The Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University (IT-BHU), was converted into Indian Institute of Technology (Banaras Hindu University), Varanasi by the Government of India, New Delhi on 29th June 2012.

Now, IIT(BHU) is celebrating “100 years of Technical Education in India” on its completion of the century. Institute kick-started its centenary celebration during 9-11 February 2019 this year. A commemorative postal stamp was released by the honourable prime minister on this occasion. With its unique engineering programs and future-ready curriculum, the Institute gears up for another glorious journey towards “New India”.

Academic Structure:

The Indian Institute of Technology (BHU) offers 4-Years B.Tech. degree programmes (UGD), 2-Years M.Tech./M.Pharm./M.Sc. degree programmes (PGD), 5-Years Integrated (B.Tech.-M.Tech.) Dual Degree programmes (IDD), 5-Years B.Arch. degree programme and Ph. D. programmes. The Indian Institute of Technology (BHU) consists of Ten Engineering Departments (Ceramic Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Technology, Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Mining Engineering and Pharmaceutical Engineering & Technology), three Science Departments (Chemistry, Mathematical Sciences and Physics) and three Interdisciplinary Schools (Biochemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Materials Science and Technology). Besides these, a Department of Humanistic Studies was also established in the year 2015. The Department of Architecture, Planning and Design will be starting its academic activities from this year.

Research and Innovation is an integral part of academic activities of the Institute. The academic curriculum encourages undergraduate students to take up projects at the earliest possibility. The research and development activities are supported by different National Agencies, viz. Ministry of Human Resource and Development (MHRD), Department of Science and Technology (DST), Department of Bio-Technology (DBT), All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) through various programmes.

Credit System

IIT(BHU) follows the semester system. An academic year (July-May) consists of two semesters each of approximately 18 weeks duration. The odd semester begins in the 4th weeks of July and ends in the 1st week of December. The even semester begins in the 1st week of January and ends in the 2nd week of May. Besides these, a Summer Term is also included in an academic session.
