View our Vision & Mission

Academic activities have begun from July 2016 session with BTECH programs in three core branches namely Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering. In 2018, Ph.D. program was initiated in all the Departments. MTECH (Mechanical Engineering) and Executive MTECH programs in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (DSAI) and Electric Vehicle Technology (EVT) were started in 2022.

At present, the Institute offers 7 nos. of 4-year BTECH programs in Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Civil and Infrastructure Engineering, Chemical and Biochemical Engineering and Mathematics & Computing. Additionally, the Institute also offers an inter-disciplinary BS- MS program.

The institute hosts nearly 1100+ students with about 20% being women. The students are drawn from about 20 states of the country. About 20% of the students are pursuing Masters and Doctoral degrees.

The Institute also has 4 Pradhan Mantri Research Fellow (PMRF) students.

The faculty members have secured about 28 cr worth of sponsored R&D projects, executed about 1.5cr worth industrial consultancy projects, and published ~300 scientific papers till now. To encourage interdisciplinary research, we have formed thematic thrust areas like Cyber- Physical Systems and loT, Energy and Environment, Green Mobility, Precision Agriculture and Healthcare. Established a Space Data Science Lab from CSR contributions from Antrix Corporation Limited.

IIT DHARWAD has established Global Centre of Excellence for Affordable and Clean Energy (GCOE ACE) from the Corporate Social Responsibility contributions from Honeywell Foundation. The mission of the centre is to make Affordable and Clean Energy (ACE) a backbone of India's development.
