Indian Institute of Information Technology Design & Manufacturing Kancheepuram (IIITD&M Kancheepuram) is a Centre of Excellence for technical education and research established in 2007 by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India to pursue design and manufacturing oriented engineering education, research and to promote the competitive advantage of Indian products in global markets. It was declared as an "Institute of National Importance(INI)"[2] by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, in July 2011, thus becoming the first IIIT to be accorded this status.

It is one of the two IIITD&Ms, the other one being located in Jabalpur. The institute,which was operating from its temporary campus within the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, which is also its mentor institute, has moved to its permanent campus at Kelambakkam-Vandalur road near Chennai. The institute offers academic and research programs that integrate engineering design, manufacturing and management with information technology. The institute offers undergraduate(B.Tech.) and postgraduate programs master of design (M.Des.) which focus on IT, electronics, mechanical design and manufacturing in engineering sectors which is not only focuses on design aspect but also in the engineering aspects which makes this institute unique in India. The institute has MOU with HITACHI Japan and academic exchange with "Nagaoka University of Technology"[3]
