  • Foundation Programme

    IITGN's unique five-week Foundation Programme is aimed at orienting undergraduates towards a holistic education that develops a broad set of life skills, such as:

    a) physical fitness,
    b) leadership and teamwork,
    c) values and ethics,
    d) societal concerns, and
    e) creativity.

    The programme includes interactions with renowned speakers through lectures, workshops, discussions, short projects, field activity, etc. Started in 2011 and pioneered by IITGN, the Foundation Programme has since been adopted by several other IITs.

  • Integrating Liberal Arts

    Critical thinking is best promoted when we recognize that technology development is rooted in a social context and appreciate the interdisciplinary character of knowledge. This recognition is reflected in the IITGN curricula that has the largest liberal arts content of any engineering curricula in the country.

    Among the courses being taught at IITGN include literature and languages (English, Sanskrit, Urdu), Philosophy, Sociology, World Civilisation, Democracy, Indian Heritage, Anthropology, Ancient Indian History, etc., providing a truly rounded education.

  • Project Based Learning

    IITGN emphasizes project based learning both inside and outside the classroom. Hands-on training via course projects, dedicated term project courses, extensive lab work and an emphasis on "learning by doing", enable undergraduates to get their hands dirty, and solve challenging problems of the real world rather than be confined to books, black boards and powerpoints.

    Equipped with advanced machines such as a Dual Extrusion 3D Printer, and Laser Cutting and Engraving machines, our Tinkerers' Lab allows students the freedom to experiment, exercise imaginations, build novel systems and convert concepts and creative ideas to actual engineering products.

  • Flexibility

    We empower students to discover and pursue their passion, with the most liberal branch change policy in the IIT system, ofering the opportunity to most students to switch to a discipline of their choice in their second year.

    Undergraduate students also have a range of other opportunities to pursue their academic interests. They may graduate with an Honors or Minors in specific disciplines. They may also choose to graduate with a major in an additional discipline.

  • Overseas Research Experience

    The Institute places a strong emphasis on undergraduate research. Nearly 40 percent of the 2017 BTech class received overseas opportunities in the world's top institutions and organizations, among the highest in the country.

    A number of undergraduate students also pursue their research at IITGN itself through the Institute's competitive Summer Research Internship Programme. The Institute has a liberal travel support policy to encourage undergraduate students every year attend scientific conferences overseas to present their work.

  • Fellowship

    IITGN offers many fellowships to support the students, not just to reward academic achievements, but also promote other interests.

    Scholarships at a Glance

    The Explorers Fellowship offers a unique annual summer programme which encourages students to discover and appreciate the staggering cultural diversity of India by undertaking a six-week journey across the country on a shoestring budget.

    The Gram Fellowship is designed to sensitise students to the rural context divide in the country, this fellowship takes students to rural India. It encourages students to immerse themselves in the experience of living in a village and in the process appreciate and think about technological and non-technological solutions.

  • Entrepreneurship and Incubation

    The entrepreneurship and innovation development programmes at the Institute offer incubatees round the clock access to design software, fabrication facilities and sophisticated laboratories.

    Courses on incubation and entrepreneurship are taught by serial entrepreneurs, and mentorship is provided by successful businesspersons. Some of our recent incubatees include GeoCarte Radar Technology that provides underground infrastructure mapping without digging, and Whitepanda Media Pvt Ltd., which is a content marketing platform that enables brands to access quality content creators.

Outcomes and Impact
