Established in 1998, International Institute of Information Technology is an autonomous university and nation’s first institute based on nonprofit public private partnership model. The university offers courses in IT and Computer Science and is strongly focused on research even at undergrad level. The university is organized as Research Centers and Labs, unlike others which are organized into Departments. The institute offers undergraduate, postgraduate and dual degree programs in IT and Computer Science areas.
The immensely reputed IIIT is located in the major IT district of Gachibowli in the north-west part of the city. In spite of being far from the city centre the location isn’t a turn off, as there is enough transportation available to all parts of the city. Also being a completely residential school, daily commute is out of the question. Although not well connected to the MMTS railway network, but the APSRTC buses do a good job here. 216, 156 and 10H drop you to the college and it doesn’t make you wait much at any time of the day. With major IT giants all around outside the campus the place will certainly dazzle you every single time you pass by.
Ample sign boards direct you to the main gate of IIIT-H and a humble gate welcomes you. If you’re an inmate, RFID cards log your entry and exit into the campus (hints of application of information technology at the very beginning). The 62 acre campus is beautiful at first sight and has a green cover all around. The academic blocks consist 4 buildings named after mountain ranges; Nilgiri, Vindhya and Himalaya. All the labs are air-conditioned and are open from 6 in the morning to 12 midnight, basically to facilitate students to conduct their research at their own pace and comfort.
