Brief History

The Indian Institute of Technology (Banaras Hindu University) is situated in the magnificent campus of Banaras Hindu University spread over nearly 1300 acres at the southern end of the ancient city of Varanasi on the bank of the holy river Ganga. The IIT (BHU) formerly known as the Institute of Technology was a part of the Banaras Hindu University, which has been an internationally acknowledged renowned seat of learning. The Banaras Hindu University was founded in the year 1916 by the great visionary and patriot, Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya Ji. This residential University has teaching and research facilities in over 135 diverse disciplines including Ancient History, Oriental Learning, Performing and Fine Arts, Institute of Medical Sciences, Institute of Management Studies, Institute of Sciences, Institute of Environmental and Sustainable Development, Social Sciences, etc. 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 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.

Academic Structure:

The Indian Institute of Technology (BHU) offers 4-Years B.Tech. degree programmes (UGD), 2-Years M.Tech./M.Pharm. degree programmes (PGD), 5-Years Integrated (B.Tech.-M.Tech.) Dual Degree programmes (IDD) and Ph. D. programmes. The Institute has highly qualified and motivated faculty members. Besides teaching, the Faculty members are also engaged in research and consultancy projects. The students are also encouraged to do projects under the able guidance of the Faculty members. The research and development activities are supported by different National Agencies, viz. Ministry of Human Resource and Development, University Grants Commission, All India Council for Technical Education, Department of Science and Technology, Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, Defence Research and Development Organization, through programmes such as FIST, sponsored research projects, etc. 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 new Department of Humanistic Studies is also established.

Academic procedures such as registration, award of scholarship, declaration of results, are fully automated.

Induction Program

The Institute runs a three-week Induction Program for the newly admitted UGD/IDD students. Institute works closely these admitted students through this Induction Program in making them feel comfortable, allow them build relations between teachers and students, give a broader view of life and build character. All these require multi-pronged innovative program of three weeks to bring them into main ethos of the Institute. Thus the success of getting into the IIT system is sustained through care and guidance.

The Induction Program has two essential components. They relate to credit based courses like Physical Education, Creative Practices (performing & visual arts), and Universal Human Values (discussions in small groups with a faculty member each) and proficiency modules on Basic English for needy students. Apart from these, students get familiarized with the Institute, BHU campus, and city also. They listen to lectures by eminent people and are allowed to interact with their seniors in the hostel to know about various co-curricular and extra-curricular activities under the aegis of Gymkhana including functioning of Students Parliament.

The Induction Program was started from the session 2016-17 on the recommendation of a committee of IIT-Directors. Experience of the Institute was widely appreciated and in August 2016, Council of IIT’s accepted the idea of conducting such a program in all IITs in future.

Credit System

IIT(BHU) follows semester system. An academic year (July-May) consists of two semesters each of approximately 20 weeks duration. The odd semester begins in the third week of July and ends in the first week of December. The even semester begins in the fourth week of December and ends in the first week of May. Besides these a Summer Term is also included in an academic session. Each theory and laboratory course has certain number of credits assigned to it depending on its lecture and laboratory contact hours in a week. Each course is coordinated by a Coordination Committee, which has full responsibility for coordinating the course, holding the periodical and end semester examinations and awarding of letter grades on a 10-point scale on relative grading basis. A student's performance is measured by the number of credits that he/she has earned and also by the Semester Performance Index (SPI)/Cumulative Performance Index(CPI) earned by him/her for a semester/course.

Rules For Change Branch:

Students are allowed change of discipline at the end of Semester-I on the basis of his/her academic performance subject to student strength/ constraints of the different UGD/IDD disciplines of different Departments/Schools, using the guidelines given below.

The student should have passed all courses upto Semester-I and her/his CPI at the end of Semester-I should be ≥ 8.0 and has no Fail Grade(s).

The merit of the students will be determined on the basis of Performance Index (PI) determined on the basis of grades of Institute Science and Institute Engineering courses only bearing IS and IE codes.
