The Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Allahabad was established in 1999, as a centre of excellence in Information Technology and allied areas. The Institute was conferred the ‘The University’ status by Govt. of India in the year 2000. The Institute thus became empowered to have a perpetual seal and award degree subsequent to the conduct of its own examinations. The Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad (IIIT-A) has been conceived with the ambitious objectives of developing professional expertise and skilled manpower in Information Technology (IT) and related areas.
