IIT-Dharwad to admit 250 students next year

IIT-Dharwad, which will have 250 students in its first batch next year, is likely to be handheld by either IIT Bombay or IIT Hyderabad. Initially, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Dharwad will function from a temporary campus, sources in the Union HRD ministry said.

The ministry is fine-tuning the aspects of launching the institution, notwithstanding the demand over shifting it to Raichur. Initially, IIT-Dharwad will offer BTech in computer science and electronics and communication, given the spiralling demand for engineers in these disciplines across the country.

It will function from the Water and Land Management Institute (WALMI) building in Dharwad till a permanent campus is built.

A senior MHRD official told TOI that the intake of students will be increased in later years. "IIT Bombay or IIT Hyderabad will mentor their Dharwad sibling," he said adding that the board of governors of IITs and the mentor IIT would look after the recruitment of professors.

The state government had identified land for IIT in Raichur (688 acres), Mysuru (499 acres) and Dharwad (500-600 acres) free from legal encumbrances for establishment of an IIT.
