Foundation: 2009

Mission: The driving force behind the 21st century is the development of knowledge-intensive societies. This awareness has led to the creation of new institutes of higher learning in India in the past few years. Indian Institute of Technology Indore, established in 2009, is part of this mega-project that envisages India as a Global Technology Leader. Continuing with the tradition of the older IITs, IIT Indore aims to play an active role in this task of propelling India on her growth-trajectory by focusing on education, research and development. IIT Indore visualizes this mission within the context of larger humanistic concerns.

Vision: - Academics: To inculcate and promote an academic community with independence of thought and free expression of research ideas; To provide a balance of continuously updated knowledge with extensive hands on training on sophisticated facilities; To engage with industry and external partners for curricula design; Adjunct faculty and distinguished international visiting faculty to form important components of institute is teaching and research profile. - Research and development: While cutting edge research is a basic mission for all areas, Bioscience and Biomedical Engineering is identified a thrust area programme; Through interdisciplinary research and development, promotion of an experiment programme in astronomy for in house design and construction of a major observing facility is identified as another thrust area; To encourage candidates from industry and defence services for PhD programme at IIT Indore. - Innovation and entrepreneurship: “Concept to Product” to be facilitated with heavy engagement with industry partners; Promote undergraduate research, start –ups and incubators within the campus; To establish and innovation centre and science park.
