International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh

IIIT Hyderabad

International Institute of Information Technology Hyderabad is an autonomous institute started in 1998 with seed support from the Government of Andhra Pradesh. It was set up as a not-for-profit public private partnership (NPPP) and is the first IIIT to be set up (under this model) in India. A Governing Council consisting of eminent people from academia, industry and government presides over the governance of the institution. It emphasizes research from the undergraduate level, which makes it different from the other leading engineering institutes in India like the IITs. Raj Reddy, the only Indian to get the Turing Award, is the chairman of the board of governors.

It is a research university. The major goal is to impart a uniquely broad and interdisciplinary IT education of high academic quality. This is done through an diverse curriculum of IT courses, interdisciplinary IT research projects, interaction with industry, preparation in entrepreneurship and personality development courses.

The institute is in Gachibowli, Hyderabad. It is close to HITEC City (a centre housing software development centres of companies like Microsoft, Oracle Corporation, Motorola, Infosys and GE Capital) and the presence of IT majors from across the globe right on the campus through their schools and research centres.

IIIT Hyderabad was ranked 7th among the top technology schools in India, in a 2008 by Dataquest Magazine


The Institute is situated on a campus of 62 acres (250,000 m²). There are 4 buildings that house the corporate schools and research centers. In addition to this, the academic building has the lecture halls, tutorial rooms, computer and electronics labs and offices of the administration and faculty.

All students are provided individual hostel rooms. The Institute has a Guest House with four air conditioned suites. Two hostels for men and one for women have a total of about 1200 rooms. There is an optical fibre network connecting all buildings on campus including the hostels.
