Indian Institute Of Technology - IIT Ropar
Indian Institute of Technology Ropar started functioning from the academic year 2008-09 from the campus of IIT Delhi, the mentor institute. The Institute currently operates from the premises of Government Polytechnic College for Women in Ropar. The foundation stone laying ceremony was held on 24th February, 2009. Indian Institute of Technology Ropar has been the registered as Society under the Societies' Registration Act 1860 on 29 July, 2009. The transit campus of IIT Ropar was inaugurated on 19 August, 2009. The institute will be relocated to its own campus, spread over an area of 500 acres on the banks of the river Satluj, in July 2017.
The Indian Institute of Technology Ropar is ranked 9th best engineering institute in the latest national rankings. IIT Ropar is committed to provide state-of-the-art technical education in a variety of fields. The Institute is facilitating transmission of knowledge in keeping with the latest developments in pedagogy. At present, the Institute offers Bachelor of Technology at UG level in Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering programmes; MS-(R), M. Tech., and M.Sc., in Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering; Mechanical Engineering; and in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics respectively. In research, all departments are offering PhD Programmes. The Institute has two inter-disciplinary centers on Biomedical Engineering and Materials & Energy Engineering.
Four batches of Undergraduate students have earned their B.Tech. degrees in the Convocation. In addition, IIT Ropar has awarded several PhD degrees. Presently the Institute has 476 UG, 42 PG and 138 PhD students. The temporary campus for IIT Ropar is equipped with all the required facilities. Classrooms fitted with multimedia, faculty offices and administrative wing are all in place. There are four hostels: three for boys and one for girls. These hostels are equipped with modern mess units.
Faculty recruitment, creation of laboratories and other support facilities are in full swing. The new campus is under construction and is moving at a fast pace. Campus construction is expected to be completed by mid-2017. The overall academic system for IIT Ropar is designed to provide science-based engineering education with a view to produce quality engineers and scientists. The curriculum provides broad based knowledge and simultaneously builds a temper for lifelong learning and exploration. The undergraduate programme begins with a set of science and general engineering courses which are reflected in the course plan for the first year. These courses provide a foundation for further discipline-specific topics.
The Institute also undertakes a number of research and consultancy projects sponsored by a wide spectrum of funding agencies, including the Government and Industry. The Institute has undertaken major research activities in areas of national importance such as non-conventional energy, sensors, drug delivery, materials synthesis and their modification, image processing, cloud computing, networks, robotics, pattern recognition, renewable energy systems, microelectronics and nanodevices, mathematical biology, fluid dynamics, pure mathematics, quantum optics and quantum control, soft matter physics, ion beam physics, renewable energy, nanophotonics and metamaterials, surface patterning, sustainable energy, biomechanics, nanofluids, complex fluids, nanocomposites, Neuro-cognition, financial mathematics and markets, phonetics, etc. The Institute provides adequate funds to the departments and faculty members for the upgradation of laboratories and creation of research facilities. This has enabled our faculty to take up research projects in frontier and emerging areas of science and technology.
The Training & Placement cell is actively involved in organizing practical training of the undergraduate students and has been playing a catalytic role in finding placements for its final year students. Reorganization of Training & Placement cell is in the process and soon it will be known as Career Development and Corporate Relations Centre.
IIT Ropar has undertaken the task of redefining its vision and mission and to put a strategic plan to achieve them. It is also working on overhauling its UG programs and introduces new PG streams. IIT Ropar is in the process of finding its research focus particularly in the interdisciplinary areas.
In fine it can be said that IIT Ropar is in the path of a steep growth for the years to come.
Training and placement office is equipped with Video Conferencing, Skype Facilities for interviews and interaction with the companies. Audio and Video facilities with state of art technology are available for the pre placement talks. Interview rooms, Conference room and Computer labs for conducting online tests are also made available. For the year 2014 the highest annual package was Rs 65,00,000 and average package was Rs 1200000.
