IIT Bombay Campus

IIT Bombay has one of india’s biggest campus with the campus size touching 550 acres. IIT Bombay is a small township in itself. Rich in natural flora and fauna to begin with, the campus’ green cover has been maintained and even increased over the years. An island of green in the otherwise concrete jungle that is Mumbai, the campus at Powai nestles among hills and is flanked by the Powai and Vihar lakes.  It is special both in terms of its physical beauty and location — a place where you can be away from the busy world, yet still be a part of it. Education and research are the twin pillars of this institute and the ambience is one in which new ideas and creativity can flourish. 

The campus is connected to the city proper — an hour’s distance —  by buses and local trains. However, most facilities are available on campus itself, including banks, a shopping centre, two excellent schools for children, and a well-equipped hospital. All students and most faculty live on campus, in student hostels and IIT staff quarters. The peaceful atmosphere of the campus belies the wide range of activities that complement academic life.

IIT Bombay M.TECH & IIT Bombay Phd.

IIT Bombay also offers M.Tech as well as M.Tech+Phd Programme to the students. The admissions to these are based on the GATE scores of the candidate. Candidates may choose to specialise in 17 different departments. Candidates may also opt for an integrated 5 year course consisting of B.Tech + M.Tech.
