About the Institute:

In May 2016, the union cabinet gave its ex-post-facto approval to amend The Institutes of Technology Act,1961, for incorporating 6 new IITs, including IIT Goa – An institution of national importance. IIT Goa is now three years old. By blending traditional foundations of higher learning with pioneering thinking, IIT Goa has already begun to redefine the role of higher education for the public good in the 21st century.

With the new school-based academic structure, our undergraduate students get the opportunity to conduct collaborative research across disciplines, take courses in their areas of interest and participate in various internship programmes, seminars, and workshops. We are also introducing ground-breaking academic policies such as flexible curriculum, no-fail grading policy during the first semester, a 6-month long internship programme (one of a kind among all IITs) which includes internships at different well-known world-leading industries, institutions, etc. We have also introduced a credit structure which can greatly reduce the academic load on students so that students can grab greater non-academic achievements along with their academic accomplishments.

From the beginning, IIT Goa has attracted some of the brightest young faculties from around the globe as well as experienced faculties from older IITs, which greatly helps us to organize the academic programme at IIT Goa and meet international standards of education and the expectations of our student community. In order to strengthen educational and research partnerships, IIT Goa is in the process of signing several MoU’s with International institutions and other National laboratories, etc.

With the help of suitably planned scholarship schemes and other named scholarships, IIT Goa is always helping the students as well as parents to reduce the financial burden on them and to achieve their academic and non-academic aims at greater ease.

The interim campus of IIT Goa is located at Goa Engineering College (GEC) at Farmagudi, which is about 33 km away from the proposed IIT Goa Campus site.  This temporary campus of IIT Goa at GEC is fully equipped with classrooms, laboratories, and modern hostel buildings with berthing capacity for 640 students along with facilities for all indoor games like lawn tennis, basketball, etc.

Finally, 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:

The Institute offers four undergraduate (B. Tech.) programs in engineering and follows a semester system. An academic year (July-April) consists of two semesters namely Autumn and Spring, 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 through a mid-semester examination, quizzes 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) 2019, 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.
