The Defence Institute of Advanced Technology (DIAT), previously called Institute of Armament Technology (IAT), is a Deemed University specializing in Armament Technologies and is located in Girinagar near Pune, India.
This institute began as a military technical training school called the Institute of Armament Studies in 1952. In the beginning, it was temporarily located inside the College of Military Engineering campus at Dapodi near Pune. In 1967, the institute was renamed to Institute of Armament Technology (IAT) when it was made an inter-service training institution and relocated to its present location in Girinagar, Pune.
IAT was granted deemed-to-be university status in 2006 and was renamed as Defence Institute of Advanced Technology on 1 April 2006. Thereafter it started awarding degree by itself (earlier it was awarded by University of Pune).

Hon'ble Vice Chancellor's Message
vice_chancellorThe task in a University is creating an environment where students and teachers continually learn and are involved in the academic and research activity. Do not wait, the time will never be just right. Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along. Achievement is not always success while repeated failure often is. It is an honest attempt, constant effort to do the best possible under any and all situation. In an institute of higher learning, the Ph.D program has always a special place. It nourishes the M.Tech program and is a reflection of the research activity going on in the institute. We try to ensure that students studying in DIAT (DU) have the same opportunities as the students based in other IITs. The University is approved and accredited by the UGC and AICTE respectively. The students should understand the entry requirements of a University and make sure they meet these requirements before applying for an admission.
DIAT Deemed University now functions as an world class academic university. DIAT Deemed University is approved by the UGC and AICTE and MHRD, GOI has placed DIAT (DU) in Category 'A' Deemed University. DIAT Deemed University is trying to get accreditation from NAAC.
