Along with IITs and NITs, for last 15 years a new trend of Technical Institutes IIITs are building up its brand across the country. These Institutes have been set up to excel the Information & Communication Technology field in India. Though as a brand, IIITs are very new in comparison to IITs and NITs, many of them provide high quality and state of the art education, infrastructure and facilities. The education system of some of the IIITs are in some case similar or even better to many of the NITs and some of the new IITs also. IIITs hold the status of Institutes of National Importance. To know more about IITs and NITs go through the posts ”IITs in India” and “NITs in India” respectively. IgEn presents much more details about individual IIITs in different other posts. This post is meant to inform you the brief information about all the IIITs in India.
