The Indian Institute of Information Technology Surat is an Institute of National Importance established in Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) mode in 2017 by the erstwhile Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. The Government of Gujarat, Gujarat Narmada Fertilizer Company Ltd, Gujarat Gas Ltd and Gujarat Informatics Ltd agreed through a Memorandum of Understanding with Government of India to be the partners in the establishment and progression of the Institute.
The students are admitted through the JEE (Main). The Institute is committed to the mission of delivering highly competent graduate engineers who are enriched with theoretical knowledge as well as hands-on experience in Information and Communication Technologies. The B.Tech curriculum is designed in such a way that students get exposure to the latest trends in technology such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Internet of Things (IoT).
IIIT-Surat strongly believes that industry-academia engagement is instrumental in advancing research and creating a skilled workforce. Therefore, the final year B.Tech students of our institute are encouraged to pursue industry internships for a period of 6 months during their eight semester (Jan – June). This provides them the necessary exposure to the industrial environment and makes them ready for a good career in engineering. The Training and Placement Cell at IIIT Surat provides a platform where the recruiters and students can come together to explore the avenues of a fruitful alliance.
The training and placement activities are well supported by Training and Placement cell of SVNIT.
