Indian Institute of Technology,Roorkee
(Institutes of National Importance)

Establishment

The Institute has an illustrious history and a glorious past. The Thomason College, the oldest engineering college in India, owes its birth to the waters of Mother Ganges. With¬out the River Ganges there would have been no canal of that name, and, without the canal, no college at Roorkee. The Ganges Canal soon reached maturity, but its offspring, the Thomason College, planned by men of wisdom and foresight, grew steadily from the smallest beginnings till it attained the proud position which it now holds as one of the leading educa¬tional institutions of the East with great traditions and a reputation second to none.

The University of Roorkee celebrated the completion of 150 years of its existence in 1996-1997. The University of Roorkee, now the Indian Institute of Technology had a modest beginning as the Thomason College of Engineering in the year 1847, and was converted to the First Technical University of India in the year 1949

On September 21, 2001, an Ordinance issued by the Government of India declared it as the nation's seventh Indian Institute of Technology. The Ordinance is now converted into an Act by the Parliament to make IIT, Roorkee as an "Institution of National Importance".

    Admission Process

    Undergraduate Admission
    Students are admitted to undergraduate courses through an All-India competition known as Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) conducted by all the seven IIT's along with IT-BHU and ISM-Dhanbad, at various centres across the country in which more than 1,50,000 candidates compete for around 4,500 seats.

    The admissions to Institute of Technology–Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, and Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad are also done through JEE for about 850 seats. From the year 2006, JEE pattern has undergone a change,instead of two level selection procedure there will be only one level of selection wherein just three separate papers of Chemistry,Physics,Mathematics of 2 hour duration each take place. The paper would be objective type in nature designed to test the comprehension and analytical ability of the candidates.

    The detailed information can be obtained from the JEE Website and the JEE office of the Institute.

    This Institute offers 11 courses leading to four-year Bachelor of Technology and one five year B.Arch. course/Five-year dual-degree programmes are also available here in few disciplines wherein both B.Tech. and M.Tech./M.B.A. degrees are awarded after successful completion of the programme. Further the Institute offers 5 year integrated M.Tech./M.Sc. programmes for which the students are admitted through JEE.

    However no admission is available to any Non resident Indian at undergraduate level at the institute. "As per the decision of IIT council the admission to the Undergraduate programme through Direct Admission of Students Abroad (DASA) scheme is abolished"

    Students admitted to the graduate programs of study at IIT Roorkee go through a process of selection prior to their admissions. The process of selection is administered at the national (All India) level or at the Institute depending on the program of study. For detailed information of the Institute and different programs, download the information brochure given below.

    GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering), The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering is an All - India Examination conducted by the seven IITs and IISc Bangalore, on behalf of the National Coordinating Board - GATE, Department of Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Government of India. For more info follow link GATE

     

    JAM (Joint Admission Test to M.Sc) for admission to M.Sc programmes at the IITs. From year 2005 admissions to MCA programme at IIT Roorkee are also made through JAM which were previously through AIMCET. More info at JAM website

     

    JMET (Joint Management Entrance Test) The Joint Management Entrance Test is an Examination conducted by the seven IITs and IISc Bangalore for admission to the Postgraduate Degree Programmes in Management in the respective Institutes. More info at JMET website

    This Institute offer courses leading to two-year Master of Science degrees in a number of disciplines. In addition, post-graduate programmes leading to M.Tech., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees are also offered.

    Ph.D. Admissions
    The award of Ph.D. degree is in recognition of high achievements, independent research and application of scientific knowledge to the solution of technical and scientific problems. Creative and productive enquiry is the basic concept underlying the research work. In order to overcome any deficiency in the breadth of fundamental training or proper foundation for advanced work, special preliminary or pre-doctoral courses are given by each department/centre. Students are requested to consult the particular department for the research areas of their interest.
