Indian engineering schools are managed by IIT.
The Indian Institute of Technology, or IIT, was established in 1946 and is the organization that oversees higher education technical institutions for India. Seeking to pattern advanced technological schools after European and North American engineering universities, IIT established several universities that emphasized top graduates and engaged in research and development as well. Today’s most elite Indian engineering schools offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in some of the most competitive engineering fields.
Located in Powai, IIT Mumbai trains engineers from all over India and also welcomes international students from more than 20 countries. Established in 1958, ITT Mumbai is usually ranked as one of the top three engineering schools in the country. The school offers degrees in several engineering disciplines, including civil engineering, chemical engineering, physics and metallurgical engineering and materials science.
