IITGN received the ‘World Education Award 2013’ for its innovations in B.Tech. programme and is home to top quality post-graduate students with only 0.20% of the applicants being admitted every year. IITGN encourages innovation and experimentation in every facet of education while expecting excellence from its students, staff, and faculty. The Institute is thriving on a culture enabling free thought, responsibility, innovation, and excellence. Some celebrated innovations in curriculum development and governance include:

Our students are actively engaged in all aspects of academic and community life. Notwithstanding our relatively small student body, IITGN students have performed disproportionately well in the annual inter-IIT Sports meets. Our students are deeply involved in the organization of cultural and technical events, such as Blithchron Cultural Festival and the Amalthea Technical Summit, social work, research and design projects outside the curriculum, and in class participation.

IIT Gandhinagar today takes tremendous pride in its student body for its maturity and leadership skills. We are confident that these young men and women will not only bring glory to the Institute in the years ahead, but will also be instrumental in transformative social and technical change.

The Institute is looking for industry partners who will not just recruit our graduates, but will also provide us with a constant feedback on their performance and help us continuously modify our curriculum so that it is responsive to the changing environment. We welcome all suggestions, participation and engagement from industry and other well wishers in our endeavour to develop IITGN into a top-notch university.
