About Us

Indian Institute of Technology, Ropar (IIT Ropar) is one of the new IITs(established in 2008) set up by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India. The foundation stone of the Institute was laid on 24th February 2009. The Institute is currently operating from a transit campus, occupied earlier by the Government Polytechnic for Women. The two areas of focus enables students to gain exposure to recent trends in their chosen domains of study and practical experience through a wide variety of activities that the institute facilitates in its own campus and arranges for in collaboration with industry and other institutes. The Government of Punjab has allotted 501 acres of land on the banks of the river Satluj to IIT Ropar. When completed, the campus will be a self-contained township catering to all the needs of faculty, staff and students. At the transit campus, arrangements have been made for classes, laboratories, hostels and faculty accommodation. The institute will shift to the new campus in the coming semester.

Institute Student Mentor Program, (ISMP) is a student initiative, run by IIT Ropar, to make sure that the transition of freshmen into IITians is smooth and concurrently facitilate the growth of individuals so that they can make informed decision when they face any problem at IIT Ropar and further in their life. Every freshman joining IIT Ropar is assigned a mentor who will be a friendly guide for the fresher at IIT Ropar and will help them analyze various options at different stages of IIT life. Mentors are second, third and fourth-year students at IIT Ropar who aid the induction of freshmen and their development process throughout the academic year. Mentoring is not only about the transfer of knowledge from a more experienced to a less experienced person through learning and dialogue, but also about being a good friend with whom a mentee may share all his hesitations and apprehensions. The mentors can be approached at any time either by meeting them personally or by virtual means. Also every mentor maintains a group in Whatsapp or Facebook to ensure that maximum interaction is possible with little hesitation. Mentors will guide all the mentees throughout the year and the latter get to learn a lot and become mentors in the forthcoming years.

Dear Students,
Congratulations on joining the IIT Ropar family. On behalf of the Institute, I welcome you all to IIT Ropar, a place where we celebrate youth and excellence and attempt to transform young persons into adults with a sense of social responsibility, human values and concern for environment. We not only strive to train the students to become excellent scientists, technologists, thinkers and leaders of the society, but also help them mould themselves into better human beings. To start with, a 4-year B.Tech programme is offered in six branches, viz., Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Chemical Engineering with a strength of 66, 66, 77, 40 and 35 students respectively. This year institute decided to add one more branch, Metallurgical Engineering, under B.Tech programme. The curriculum, course structure and syllabus for the first year courses are similar to (but may not be identical to) that in IIT Delhi. We hope that you would use this opportunity to realize your full potential and bring out the best in you. We are sure that the excellent academic environment and the opportunity to participate in co-curricular activities will also help you in developing your personality and in your all-round development. I believe that your education in IIT Ropar will be a fulfilling experience. There would be of course times when you might feel lonely and stressed, especially during the initial phase of your stay here. During these times, I will strongly suggest that you should not hesitate in seeking help from your student mentor, faculty advisor or the Institute Counselor. We will make a genuine attempt in assisting you during the time of your trials and tribulations. We have also set up a special Help Desk in IIT Ropar to help you resolve your problems, through the voluntary efforts of some of our faculty and staff members. You can approach this help desk at any time during your stay at the IIT Ropar campus to address any of your concerns regarding either academic matters or life in the campus. In case of special needs, you are also welcome to seek the help of the Dean of Student Affairs or the Dean of Academic and Research. I sincerely hope that your academic pursuit in IIT Ropar will be fruitful and enjoyable in every aspect and the experiences you gain here and the moments you spend here will be cherished by you all your life. Wishing you the very best.
