The Indian Institute of Technology in Dharwad was established in the year 2016. During the 11th five- year plan it had been decided to expand the number of the premier educational institutes like the IITs, so few were added. By the time of the 12th five- year plan, it was decided to further expand as still some states and regions were underserviced. That is why four more IITs were started. These are popularly known as the ‘Baby IITs’. They are in- Jammu, Palakkad, Tirupati and Dharwad. These new IITs have over a period of time gained in reputation and are fast closing the gap on the top incumbents. Lakhs of students from all over the country enrol themselves over countless hours of coaching classes in order to secure a seat at the IITs.
Securing a seat at the IITs is done through a rigorous selection process involving the JEE (Joint Entrance Examination). This is the largest entrance exam in the country in terms of numbers and possibly amongst the largest in the world. This paper is given by more than 12 lakh people annually. It is a 3- hour exam worth 90 marks constituting 3 segments with equal weightage. Those segments are- Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics. The best of the performers, totaling roughly 2 lakhs of them are further shortlisted for the JEE Advanced which is for selection to the IITs. The JEE Advanced is conducted over 2 rounds on the same day. The morning paper which runs from 9 am till noon is followed by a break and then another 3 hour one. The pattern however is not so well understood as the marks pattern is not clearly defined. It keeps changing annually.
The IIT- Bombay will act as mentor to the IIT- Dharwad. For long the city of Dharwad in Karnataka had been mounting a plan to have an IIT in the Hubbali- Dharwad corridor. Finally, during the latest expansion of the IITs, certain cities in Karnataka such as Mysuru and Raichur were also shortlisted, as was Dharwad, which got the nod. At present, the institute is housed in a temporary location, but it is soon set to move to its 470- acre permanent location. The twin cities of Dharwad and Hubbali are host to several educational institutions, so this is a good addition.
At present, only the undergrad and doctoral programmes are being run from here. There are three branches of engineering that can be pursued from here at the undergrad BTech level. These are- Electrical Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. There are several undergrad labs set up to help students experiment. No master’s level programmes are run here as yet. The Career Development Cell (CDC) is quite proactive here with the students. Internships and social volunteering projects have been arranged for the students. Several national and regional- level events are also conducted year- round. The faculty from IIT- Dharwad is also renowned for getting their works published across national and international journals. The institute has already made a name for itself, especially within its geographical reason for their consulting prowess. And that is why, they have received some sponsored projects already. Those projects are titled as – “Optimal Control of Pursuit Evasion” and “Integrations on Multiple Pool Fires: Experimental and Numerical Study”.
Careers360 shortlists over 5000 colleges across domains each year. Out of these colleges, only those colleges are rated/ranked which provide transparent data requested by Careers360. The cumulative scores of colleges are then calculated and they are divided into clusters as per their scores. Careers360 ranks private and government colleges separately as the support system of both types of Institutions is completely different.
Based on the individual scores secured by colleges in cumulative score that they have received.
The colleges are ranked as per the cumulative score that they have received. The college that has got the maximum cumulative score will be ranked first while the college that has got least cumulative score will be ranked last.
Institutions that are promoted by the central/state or provincial Government or Government aided agencies.
Institutes that are promoted by private trusts/Socities/sector 8 companies that are not for profits.
