Professor Shreepad KarmalkarNamaskar!

A warm welcome to the scenic and serene IIT Bhubaneswar campus!

Established in the year 2008, our IIT started functioning from two transit campuses in Bhubaneswar city. Since then, we have certainly come a long way. The present permanent campus is situated at the foot of the Barunei hillock and spreads over 936 acres of land. The hillock is not only a beautiful tourist spot, it is famous for its historical significance. The area is known for the resistance against the British occupation of Khurda Garh, the last independent fort of India, in the year 1803 – 1804. It is also the landmark of the first freedom struggle in India, the Paika Bidroha during 1810- 1817.

Inspired and privileged to be the torch bearers of such milestones of history, we at IIT Bhubaneswar endeavor to kindle the spark in a generation of students entrusted to us. Our highly committed and competent faculty strive to produce motivated and well rounded young adults through undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programs. Our students are equipped with critical thinking, efficient communication, hands-on experience, experimental, management and entrepreneurial skills, and an ethical mindset appropriate for industry, academia, research and start-ups. Empowered with holistic training, our students can excel in their chosen professions and pursue their dreams, leading a happy life of service to society.

We invite all organizations and corporations to visit our campus and connect with these young, enthusiastic and innovative minds. We welcome your suggestions for strengthening our efforts.

Looking forward to a successful Placement Season 2022-23.
