The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are institutions of national importance established through an Act of Parliament. The IITs are well known, the world over, for quality education in engineering and science, and research in frontier areas. The aim of the IITs is to build a sound foundation of knowledge, pursue excellence and enhance creativity in an intellectually stimulating environment. The current pace of advancement of technology needs a coherent back-up of basic science education and research. So, the vibrant academic ambience and research infrastructure of the IITs motivate the students to pursue Research and Development careers in frontier areas of basic sciences as well as interdisciplinary areas of science and technology. Further, IITs have well equipped modern laboratories, efficient computer networks and state-of-the-art libraries. The teaching process is structured to promote close and continuous contact between the faculty and the students. A number of financial assistantships are available to SC/ST and other deserving and meritorious students at individual institutes.

From the Academic Session 2004 - 05, Indian Institutes of Technology have started conducting a Joint Admission Test for M.Sc. (JAM). The objective of JAM is to provide admissions to various M.Sc, Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree and other post-bachelor degree programmes at the UTs based on the performance in a single test and to consolidate Science as a career option for bright students from across the country. In due course, JAM is also expected to become a benchmark for normalizing undergraduate level science education in the country.

The M.Sc, Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D, M.Sc-Ph.D. Dual Degree and other post-bachelor degree programmes at the UTs offer high quality education in their respective disciplines, comparable to the best in the world. The curricula for these programmes are designed to provide the students with opportunities to develop academic talent leading to challenging and rewarding professional life. The curricula are regularly updated at each IIT. The interdisciplinary content of the curricula equips the students with the ability to utilize scientific knowledge for practical applications. The medium of instruction in all the programmes is English.
