The International Institute of Information Technology Hyderabad (IIITH) is a Deemed University, founded as a non-profit public-private partnership (N-PPP), located in Telangana, India. It is the first IIIT in India under this model.[7]

History[edit]

IIIT Hyderabad was founded in 1998 under the public-private partnership Deemed University model by the Ministry of Human Resource Development of the Government of Andhra Pradesh and NASSCOM,[8] with the state government supplying a grant of land and buildings.[9] As special officer for IIIT Hyderabad and the Secretary of IT for the state government, Ajay Prakash Sawhney shaped the concept and was responsible for and overseeing the initial development of the institute.[10][11] Rajeev Sangal, former director of Indian Institute of Technology (BHU) Varanasi designed the syllabus and served as the first director of the institute until 10 April 2013.[12]

The institution was founded as the Indian Institute of Information Technology Hyderabad as a foundation for the 20 Indian Institutes of Information Technology under the same model, which was renamed to International Institute of Information Technology Hyderabad in 2001, when it attained a status of a deemed university.[13]

The institute celebrated its Silver Jubilee on 2 September 2023. The main celebrations were held from 1 to 3 September, with many earlier events throughout the previous year, including a special fire-side chat with former chief minister of Andhra Pradesh Nara Chandra Babu Naidu and the honouring of esteemed people associated with the history of the institute.[14]
