Indian Institute of Technology Tirupati was established in 2015 as one of the six third-generation IITs. The Government of Andhra Pradesh has given 530 acres of land for setting up the permanent campus. Currently, IIT Tirupati is functioning from a temporary campus. The master plan for the permanent campus that will cater to 12,000 students has been finalized. The construction of the campus at that site is underway and it will be partly operational from 2018 academic session. By 2024, the Institute is expected to have about 2500 students and 200 faculty members in 11 departments.

The B. Tech programs started with 30 students each in four engineering disciplines namely Civil, Computer Science, Electrical and Mechanical. Subsequently, the Institute started M.S, M. Tech and Ph. D programs. This year, the intake in B. Tech program is increased to 180 students with the start of the Chemical Engineering program. Since the Institute is mentored by IIT Madras, the students had the opportunity to be taught by senior IITM faculty along with newly joined IIT Tirupati faculty. The Institute provides an environment that fosters curiosity and creativity within and beyond the classroom. With strong emphasis on theory and fundamentals, the students have participated in various technical events around the country like Smart India Hackathon and Inter IIT Tech meet. Along with academics, we encourage our students to participate in extracurricular activities as well. The students actively participate in numerous clubs such as astronomy, music, social outreach, etc. Being the first batch, the students have taken up excellent initiatives to set up the sports and cultural events on the campus that have helped the students to hone collective responsibility skills and leadership qualities. We are extremely proud of our student’s performance in the last inter-IIT sports and cultural events.

Along with young and dynamic faculty who have joined after completing their doctoral programs and postdoctoral training from top Universities/Institutes across the world, IIT Tirupati has several senior faculty from other established IITs. Being energetic they have established their latest world-class research programs at IIT Tirupati. This has given the students an opportunity to get involved in these top-notch research initiatives. Students are also actively involved in research opportunities outside IIT Tirupati. As part of their curriculum, the graduating batch completed their summer internship between May and July 2018 in top class companies. The students actively participated in driving the summer internship process which ensured 100% of them secured internships. This internship experience has provided them with an opportunity to connect the classroom knowledge with its real-world applications.

Being a new Institute, IIT Tirupati is nimble and aggressively pursuing opportunities to collaborate with leading Indian & multi-national companies, public sector organizations, financial institutions and others. We highly value our partnership with the Industry and remain committed to making your recruiting experience with IIT Tirupati productive and positive.

I cordially invite you to IIT Tirupati for the on-campus placement process.

Best Wishes,
Prof. K. N. Satyanarayana
Director, IIT Tirupati.
