Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management, Gwalior
The Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management, Gwalior (IIITM Gwalior, IIITM-G) is a deemed university and the first Indian Institute of Information Technology established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India in 1997. It is located in the city of Gwalior, in the northern part of the state of Madhya Pradesh, India.

IIITM Gwalior was ranked 25th by Outlook-MDRA, in a survey of Top 50 Engineering Colleges in India in 2010. It also secured 38th position in MBA survey done by MBA Universe in 2010. In the same year IIITM Gwalior got A++ grade both in Engineering as well as in MBA from Outlook and Business India respectively. Further this college aims high to get position under top colleges.



In 1992, the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) set-up a committee under the chairmanship of Dr. P G Reddy. The team reviewed the scenario in the country with regard to software education and training. It was identified that the total manpower need for the software development, domestic and export, was of the order of 570,000 personnel in 1996 to meet a target of software export of Rs. 10,000 crores. Against this the formal educational system produced only 120,000 personnel. The team recommended setting up of Advanced Information System Institutes on the pattern of IITs and IIMs in the country. A study conducted by the World Bank sponsored in July 1992 also underlined the need for additional manpower in the area of IT and software development.


Presently, a number of institutions offer programmes in computer science and technology. However, there was no institution acting in the field of IT and Management.

The All India Council for Technical Education established a working group in 1995 consisting of professionals, academics and others in the areas of IT, management and communications to deliberate on the issues relating to IT and prepare a Theme paper. This group prepared a document underlining thec need for the establishment of a National Centre in the area of IT.


IIITM was established as a centrally funded, autonomous institution registered under the Societies' Registration Act and governed by its board of governors. The composition of the first Society is given in Annexure II. The objectives of the Institute would be to create facilities for education, training, research, consultancy and professional development in the areas of IT and management.

Course structure

The structure of academic programmes contained in the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) document were as follows:

* A 5½ year integrated programme with an entry-level qualification at Senior School Certificate or equivalent leading to a postgraduate Diploma in Information Technology and Management.
* A 2 year postgraduate programme leading to Diploma in Management and Information Technology with entry qualification as a bachelor’s degree in selected areas.
* A 1½ year postgraduate programme leading to Diploma in Information Technology and Management with entry level qualification as a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science/Electronics or equivalent.


The foundation stone of the institute was laid on Jan 17, 1996.

The institute initially operated from a temporary site in Madhav Institute of Technology and Science Gwalior (MITS). The institute had been provided nearly 15,000 square feet (1,400 m2) covered area in the high voltage laboratory complex of MITS without charging the monthly rent with a proviso that the permanent fixtures created should become the property of MITS after IIITM moves to its permanent location. IIITM Gwalior would carry to its new campus all the equipment, furniture, AC and electric fittings and all other items, which are transportable.

This space was remodeled and renovated to create two laboratories for computing and IT, faculty offices, offices for accounts, administration, academic section and two lecture rooms.

Land for the campus

Girls hostel in its construction phase A committee headed by Prof. S. K. Khanna, Chairman AICTE, looked out for a suitable site for the campus at Gwalior and identified one. The Government of Madhya Pradesh allotted land for the campus free of cost, first at the village of Sonjana, nine kilometers on the Tighara Road in January 1996. The Ministry of Environment and Forests did not agree to de-notify this land on as it was shown as forestland in old documents. The Madhya Pradesh Government allocated 61 hectares of land on Morena Road in Village Sewage farm, Gwalior. That land was then transferred to the institute in October 1998. The land is in the foothills of Gwalior Fort and located nearly equidistant from the Gwalior railway station and the airport. One face of the Site is the Morena Road linking Gwalior with National Highway No. 3.


The National Institute of Design, Ahemdabad designed the logo for the institute. The logo is depicted in Annexure IV.


Established in 1997, with a financial outlay of Rs. 61.0 Crores (US $14 million) for the first five years, the institute gives education in the field of IT and management.

The institute was accorded the status of Deemed University in the year 2001. The institute campus is spread over 160 acres (0.65 km2) amidst picturesque landscape in the foothills of the Gwalior Fort.


Campus The institute is located on a 160-acre (0.65 km2) campus at the foothills of Gwalior Fort. It is a fully residential campus with the faculty and students residing at the campus. It houses departmental blocks with Academic block houses LT, SH, library, laboratories and Faculty offices, administrative block and the student hostels. There are three hostels for boys. There are two hostels exclusively for girls. The campus is planted with a large variety of plants including those with medicinal properties.
