IIT Colleges in India- Courses, Exam Patterns and Cut-offs

JEE CRASH  Lite COURSE 2022

List of IIT Colleges in India

The Indian Institute of Technology does not need any introduction as such. It is an autonomous public technical university located across India. This is under the jurisdiction of the government of India and one of the prestigious Engineering colleges. There are a total number of 23 IITs all over India.

This was first established in Kharagpur in the year 1950 at the site of Hijli Detention Camp, where the British had incarcerated political prisoners. It was named the Indian Institute of Technology before August 18, 1951, prior to the formal inauguration.

Studying at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) is a dream of every engineering student in India. The IIT colleges in India were formed to prepare scientists and engineers. In 1951, the first-ever Indian Institute of Technology was established in Kharagpur, West Bengal. They are autonomous public institutes for higher technical education, most popular for their BTech programs. There are 23 total numbers of IIT present in India governed by the institute of technology act, 1961 and are declared as important institutes of the nation by the Indian parliament.

The admission into all the IIT colleges in India is carried out through the entrance examinations, namely JEE main and JEE advanced. Applicants must appear and clear these two phases - firstly JEE Mains and then JEE advanced in their first attempt conducted by JoSSA. Qualifying in both examinations is compulsory to secure a seat in the institute. Till 2019, the total number of seats in all the IIT for the user programs was 11,277. Only 0.6 % of the total number of students who appeared for JEE advanced 2019 got admitted into one of the IITs. Getting admitted to an IIT institute is highly competitive as many applicants appear for the exam and there are a limited number of seats.
