Rising from the horizon, sunrays falls onto the silver plated letters and reflects to the blue board engraved in white letters that reads “Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar” and behind that stands the academic building. The Institute was established on July 22, 2008 under the mentorship of IIT Kharagpur. Exactly a year later the Institute started functioning at the temporary campus of IIT Bhubaneswar in Samantapuri, Bhubaneswar.
Within this short span of time the Institute has grown significantly in every field. Though the permanent campus is coming up on 936 acres of land at Arugul, located 20 km away from the main city, no stone is being left unturned to provide all the required facilities to the students. An efficient team of well qualified professors, enthusiastic students and supportive staff, makes IIT Bhubaneswar a promising institute of the future. The Institute has fully fledged facilities for academic endeavors of all kind with help from Central Tool Room and Training Centre, Bhubaneswar. Moreover, there are video conferencing rooms equipped with modern technology to ensure interactive teaching between students and eminent faculties from other premier institutes. A library with a wide collection of books, magazines, newspapers, encyclopedias ensures the academic environment is complete in all regard. Weekly guest lectures from people of varied discipline ensures the students earn the maximum from their stay at the institute. Slowly and gradually, IIT Bhubaneswar is pacing its way to the state of success and utopia.
