Ambedkar Institute of Advanced Communication Technologies and Research (AIACTR) was established in 2001 by the Government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi. It is developing as a Centre of Excellence imparting technical education in the field of engineering and generating competent professionals with a high degree of credibility, integrity and ethical standards. It is affiliated to the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University.
At Present Delhi has various reputed Engineering Institutes like IIT, DCE, NSIT and Govt. / Private Institutes affiliated to GGSIP University. To cater to the needs of technical education due to the growth of manpower, AIACTR was started in 2001 with 30 intakes each in ECE and CSE branch. One batch has already passed during 2005 with excellent campus placement, it is envisaged that more technical manpower will be required. Due to high growth of population a number of Multi National Companies have come up in and around Delhi. To cater the needs of these industries large technical manpower is required.
The College vision is to become an Institute of Excellence in the field of Post-Graduate Engineering.
The institute obtained 8 acres (32,000 m2) plot at Geeta colony a state-of-the-art campus in 2005. The school started operating from it in 2008.
The foundation stone was laid by Honorable Chief Minister of Delhi Sheila Dikshit on 24 May 2006.
AIACTR has the following branches at the undergraduate (B.Tech) and post-graduate levels (number of seats available given in parentheses).
- Computer Science and Engineering (60)
- Electronics and Communication Engineering (120)

The curriculum is designed to give adequate emphasis on the digital processing of information for efficient communication over noisy channels. In tune with that objective, the syllabus features courses like Statistical Theory of Communication, DSP Architectures and Systems, Communication Switching Systems, Computer Networks, Communication Electronic Circuits, Microwave Components and Circuits, Satellite Communication, Photonic Devices and Systems, giving a balanced coverage of the theory and practice of modern Communication Engineering. The duration of this course is four years, and the intake of students is 120.
The Department of Humanities has an excellent reputation for its teaching and research. The disciplines under humanities study the human condition using methods that are primarily analytic, critical, or speculative. Through the humanities we reflect on the fundamental question: What does it mean to be human?

The Training & Placement Section endeavours to provide career planning and job seeking assistance to students. AIACTR has a full-fledged Training & Placement Section with faculty in charge: TPO Dipti Mal.
The T&P Section takes care training programmes for career planning and development, job interviews and total personality development, industrial contacts and image-building activities on behalf of the college, educational tours to industries and projects, job placement through campus interviews, practical training during vacations, career counseling and guidance.
Conversance is the annual cultural cum technical fest of AIT. It began as a platform for the students to showcase their talent and knowledge in fields of practical application and cultural significance in 2003.
Since then Conversance has come a long way to become one of the major festivals of any major college in Delhi. Students at AICTR have always ventured beyond books and classrooms to inculcate ingenuity and innovation as part of college life.
For 2009, it is conducted a Technical CSI fest.
