Indian Institute of Technology Bombay

Established in 1958

Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay)  was established in 1958, with the cooperation and participation of the then Government of USSR under UNESCO’s technical assistance program. It celebrated its Golden Jubilee in the year 2008-09. During these 50+ years, IIT Bombay has gained reputation for the quality of its faculty and the outstanding calibre of the students graduating from its undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Today, the Institute is recognized as a centre of academic and research excellence offering engineering, science, management and humanities education on par with the best in the world.

Located at Powai, in the metropolitan city of Mumbai, the industrial and economic capital of India, the IIT campus extends over 500 acres of verdant land, nestled between hills and flanked by Powai and Vihar lakes.  The Institute has well-equipped laboratories and workshops, and also excellent computational facilities in all the academic units in addition to a central Computer Centre. It also houses one of the finest technical libraries in the country. About 3900+ students are on roll in the undergraduate programs and 5100+ in the postgraduate (including Doctoral) programs. This includes a number of foreign students.  The faculty strength is about 550-600.

The Institute offers a large number of undergraduate and postgraduate programs in engineering, science, management, design and humanities. This includes B. Tech., M. Tech., 4 year B.Sc., M. Sc., M. Phil., M. Des., M. Mgmt., Ph.D. and dual degree programs like B.Tech. – M.Tech., M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Tech.-Ph.D. and M. Phil.- Ph. D. Currently, the Institute has twenty six Academic Units: this includes fourteen departments, one school, six centres and five interdisciplinary programs. These Units constitute the academic fabric of the Institute. The teaching programs are characterized by their flexibility and informality. The strong faculty-student interaction on the residential campus provides opportunity to students to work on seminars, publication and projects sponsored by the industry and national agencies. 

IIT Bombay follows a semester system.  An academic year (July-April) consists of two semesters, each of approximately 16 weeks duration. The first semester begins in the last week of July and ends by the last week of November.  The second semester starts in the first week of January and ends by the last week of April.  In each of the two semesters of the first year, a student is required to register for the relevant courses listed in the curriculum for that semester.  

Students belonging to the SC/ST category and students who are identified as academically weak at the end of the first semester may be prescribed a specially worked-out Reduced Load Program (RLP). Such students may be required to undergo special courses in case they are found to have inadequate background. In addition, to help students with backlogs, some courses are offered during the summer semester.
The Institute follows a credit system. Credits are allotted to various courses depending upon the number of lectures, tutorials and laboratory hours per week. The student’s performance in a course is continuously evaluated throughout the semester and culminates in the award of a Grade on a 10¬ point scale. Performance in a semester is evaluated in terms of the weighted average of grade points secured in all the courses registered in that semester, which is known as Semester Performance Index (SPI). A Cumulative Performance Index (CPI) is the weighted average of the grade points obtained in all the courses registered by the student since the time of joining the Institute. 

To students admitted through JEE (Advanced) 2015, IIT Bombay offers the following undergraduate and postgraduate programs:
•    B.Tech.
•    Dual Degree (B.Tech. + M.Tech.)
•    B.S.

IT Bombay is located at Powai, which is an eastern suburb in the North-Eastern part of Mumbai.

Mumbai is in the form of a long narrow island, almost a peninsula, thrusting south wards into the Arabian Sea. It can be broadly divided into four zones. 

South Bombay (Colaba, CST,Fort, Chruchgate, Nariman Point etc.) 
Central Bombay (Dadar, Bombay Central, Worli etc) 
The Western suburbs (Bandra, Juhu, Andheri, Borivali etc) 
The Eastern Suburbs(Kurla, Chembur, Ghatkopar, Mulund, Kanjur Marg, Vikhroli etc.) 

There is also New Bombay (Vashi, Turbhe etc.) across Thane Creek on the mainland. 

Public Transport

Mumbai has one of the most efficient and reliable public transport network. One can travel by Autorickshaws / Taxis to reach IIT from the nearest stations (Autorickshaws, however do not go further south than Sion and Bandra). For longer distance, you can use either the BEST Bus Network or the Mumbai Local train System.


Suburban Railway Transport

Those coming by Central Railway Suburban train will have to get down at Mulund, Bhandup, Kanjur Marg, Vikhroli or Ghatkopar which are the nearest stations from IITB. If you are coming by the Western Railway Suburban train you will have to get down at Andheri, Bandra, Goregoan. BEST Bus are available as below:





307, 346, 425, 396, 398,
460, 422, 424, 461


Kanjur Marg(W)






461, 398, L1











International flights land at Sahar Airport which is about 7 kms from IIT. The Domestic Airport- Santa Cruz is about 10 kms. Prepaid taxis are available at the Airports. Autorickshaws are also available for IIT.
