It has been declared to be an Institute of National Importance by the Government of India.[1] Established in 2008, IIT Gandhinagar campus is spread over 400 acres of land along the river Sabarmati.[2]

History[edit]

Foundation[edit]

IIT Gandhinagar, Old Campus (Campus at Vishwakarma Government Engineering College)

IIT Gandhinagar is one of the eight Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) announced by the Ministry of Human Resource Development in 2008.[3][4] The institute began operating in a temporary campus at Vishwakarma Government Engineering College, Chandkheda, mentored by Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. The first batch of students was admitted to three programmes: Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering.[5]

IITGN was included in the Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act, 2011.[6] The Act was passed in the Lok Sabha on 24 March 2011[7] and by the Rajya Sabha on 30 April 2012.[8]

Early developments[edit]

The IIT Gandhinagar campus is located on the banks of the Sabarmati River in Palaj village.[9] In 2011, in his inaugural speech at the Amalthea technology summit, then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi spoke of the land for the new permanent campus, saying, "the state government has decided to give land on 99 year lease with a token amount of just one rupee for setting up a campus of IIT-Gandhinagar."[10] The institute took possession of over 400 acres of land in August 2012,[2] and classes and other activities on the new campus began in July 2015.[11]

Campus[edit]

The 400-acre campus of IITGN is situated on the banks of Sabarmati Village in Palaj Village.[12] The campus has three rough divisions: Academic Block, Housing Block and Student Hostels. This campus is India's first 5-star GRIHA LD campus for minimizing the negative effect on the environment. IITGN has also been bestowed with FSSAI's 'Eat Right Campus' with a 5-star rating and is the first (and only) academic campus to be declared so.[13][14]

Academic Buildings[edit]

The Academic Block consists of several academic buildings equipped with facilities to provide all that is necessary for students and researchers alike. Construction of a new research park and more academic buildings is underway. The academic Block is recognizable by a signature 100-feet tower called the Lal Minar[15] which is distinctive and is visible from all parts of the campus.

It is entirely funded by the institute and fellows must travel to at least six states with at least one in the Northern, North-Eastern and Southern parts of the nation on a budget. They are required to plan their trip frugally, traveling by sleeper class on trains or by state government buses, and staying at low-cost accommodations such as youth hostels, homestays, and dharamshalas. The program empowers students to set off on a journey of discovery, wherein they encounter diverse cultures and lifestyles. The program was introduced in the year 2015 and has completed its fifth edition. In the last five years, the fellowship has been availed by 115 teams involving 342 students, who have created some very special memories during their six-week tour of the country.[48]

Gram Fellowship[edit]

The Gram Fellowship is a unique concept wherein, the students get a chance to experience and understand the prevailing socio, political, economic, cultural and humanitarian factors of Rural India. As a part of this Fellowship, students must commit to spend at least three weeks during the summer break (May - July) or the winter break (December) either alone or in a group of not more than three in a village.[49]

Students are expected to identify the village of their engagement well in advance and are encouraged to work and earn their livelihood during their stay in the village. If any fellow undertakes rural development projects on their return, an amount up to Rs. 25,000/- per fellow is provided by the institute. [49]

Leadership Development Initiative[edit]

Leadership Development Initiative is an attempt to promote leadership skills amongst the students at IITGN. It organizes competitions, talks by prominent industrialists and leaders, workshops and much more.[50]

LDI launched 'Project Isaac' in March 2020 amidst lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic to engage its students in creative projects to channelize their time and efforts to improve their skills.[51] The project was inspired by Sir Isaac Newton, who 350 years ago was similarly sent home by Trinity College, Cambridge, because of the Great Plague of London in 1665.[51]

Makerbhavan[edit]

Makerbhavan offers independent workshops, courses, industry engagement programs and internship opportunities.[52]

NTT Facilities, Japan, and Gujarat Energy Development Agency (GEDA), Gandhinagar, have each provided a 10 kW roof-top solar photovoltaic (PV) system to the Institute. The system provided by NTT Facilities consists of 64 thin-film modules (rated 150 W) made by Solar Frontier, Japan, while the system sponsored by GEDA consists of forty-four multicrystalline silicon modules (rated 230 W) produced by Jain Irrigation Systems, India. Each PV system is expected to generate about 15000 kWh of electricity every year and reduce total CO2 emissions by about 28 tonnes. These systems have already started to reduce the energy bills of the Institute and are being used for research in collaboration with Underwriters Laboratories.[55]

Student life[edit]

IIT Gandhinagar is known for its unique ideology of treating students as adults. Students are given freedom in every respect ranging from choosing their own student leaders, conducting the fests, summits and events without any intervention from the institute’s administration, no hostel/campus restricted movements or timings and much more.

Nyasa[edit]

Nyasa is an initiative to promote the welfare of campus construction workers and their families, begun by the IITGN community in 2011. On Republic Day (26 January), the Nyasa team distributed more than 100 woolen winter clothes to children and organised a community lunch for 400 construction workers and their families. Students, staff, and faculty now also organize weekly educational engagement sessions for children ranging from 3–10 years of age. The activities involve coloring, playing with building blocks, watching interactive and educational plays, and flying kites. During the session, food, such as fruit and dairy, which is often missing from the workers' diet, is provided. Various things like clothes, uniforms, books, stationery, bags, footwear, etc. are distributed from time to time. The focus is the overall development of the children while keeping them away from the construction sites, and hence, many activities like Introduction to the world of Computers, Origami sessions, regular sports sessions, cultural events, medical camps, etc. are organized from time to time.[56]

Also in 2011, a clothes drive, for donation to construction workers, was started, in conjunction with Service Day (7 May). Nyasa intends to expand its activities into literacy programs, and compilation of oral histories of these workers. Nyasa currently runs three schools for the children of construction workers.

In April 2014, IIT Gandhinagar's construction workers welfare programs won the HUDCO Award for "Best Practices to Improve the Living Environment 2013–14".[57]
