The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are institutions of national importance established through an Act of Parliament. The IITs are well known, the world over, for quality education in engineering and science, and research in frontier areas. The aim of IITs is to build sound foundation of knowledge, pursue excellence and enhance creativity in intellectually stimulating environment. The current pace of advancement of technology needs a coherent back up of baÂsic science education and research. The vibrant academic ambience and research infrastructure of the IITs motivate the students to pursue Research and Development careers in frontier areas of basic sciences as well as interdiscipliÂnary areas of science and technology. IITs have well equipped modern laboratories, efficient computer networks and state of the art libraries. The teaching process is structured to promote close and continuous contact between the faculty and the students. A number of financial assistantships and freeships are available to SC/ST and other deserving and meritorious students at individual institutes.
From the Academic Session 2004 – 2005, Indian Institutes of Technology have started conducting a Joint Admission test for M.Sc. (JAM) for admission to M.Sc. and other post-B.Sc. programs at the IITs. The main objective of JAM is to provide admissions to various M.Sc., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual degree and other post-B.Sc. programs based on the performance in a single test and consolidate ‘Science’ as a career option for bright students from across the country. In due course, JAM is also expected to become a benchmark for normalising undergraduate level science education in the country.
The M.Sc., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual degree and other post-B.Sc. programs at the IITs offer high quality post-B.Sc. education in respective disciplines, comparable to the best in the world. The curricula for these programs are designed to provide the students opportunities to develop academic talent leading to challenging and rewarding professional life. The curricula are regularly updated at each IIT. Interdisciplinary content of the curricula equips the students to utilize scientific knowledge for practical applications. The medium of instruction in all the programs is English.
