The Roorkee College was established in 1847 AD as the First Engineering College in the British Empire. The College was renamed as The Thomason College of Civil Engineering in 1854. It was given the status of University by Act No. IX of 1948 of the United Province (Uttar Pradesh) in recognition of its performance and its potential and keeping in view the needs of post-independent India. Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, presented the Charter in November 1949 elevating the erstwhile college to the First Engineering University of Independent India.

Since its establishment, the University of Roorkee has played a vital role in providing the technical manpower and know-how to the country and in pursuit of research. The University ranked amongst the best technological institutions in the world and has contributed to all sectors of technological development. It has also been considered a trendsetter in the area of education and research in the field of science, technology, and engineering. The University entered 150th year of its existence in one or other form in October 1996.

On the 21st September 2001, the University was declared an institute of national importance, by passing a bill in the parliament, changing its status from University of Roorkee to Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee.

Bachelor’s Degree courses are offered in 10 disciplines in Engineering and Architecture; 55 Postgraduate Degree courses are offered in Engineering, Applied Science and Architecture and planning. The Institute has a facility for doctoral work in all Departments and Research Centers.

Students are admitted to undergraduate courses through an All-India competition known as Joint Entrance Examination Advanced (JEE Advanced) conducted by all the seven IIT’s along with IIT BHU and IIT(ISM) Dhanbad, at various centres across the country in which more than 1,50,000 candidates compete for around 4,500 seats.

The admissions to Institute of Technology–Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, and Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad are also done through JEE for about 850 seats. From the year 2006, JEE pattern underwent a change, instead of two level selection procedure, there will be only one level of selection wherein just three separate papers of Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics of 2-hour duration each take place. The paper would be objective type in nature designed to test the comprehension and analytical ability of the candidates.

This Institute offers 11 courses leading to four-year Bachelor of Technology and one five year B.Arch. course/Five-year dual-degree programmes are also available here in few disciplines wherein both B.Tech. and M.Tech./M.B.A. degrees are awarded after successful completion of the programme. Further the Institute offers 5 year integrated M.Tech./M.Sc. programmes for which the students are admitted through JEE.

However no admission is available to any Non resident Indian at undergraduate level at the institute. “As per the decision of IIT council the admission to the Undergraduate programme through Direct Admission of Students Abroad (DASA) scheme is abolished”

Postgraduate admissions

Students admitted to the graduate programs of study at IIT Roorkee go through a process of selection prior to their admissions. The process of selection is administered at the national (All India) level or at the Institute depending on the program of study.

GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering), The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering is an All – India Examination conducted by the seven IITs and IISc Bangalore, on behalf of the National Coordinating Board – GATE, Department of Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Government of India. For more info follow link GATE

JAM (Joint Admission Test to M.Sc) for admission to M.Sc programmes at the IITs. From year 2005 admissions to MCA programme at IIT Roorkee are also made through JAM which were previously through AIMCET. More info at JAM website

This Institute offer courses leading to two-year Master of Science degrees in a number of disciplines. In addition, post-graduate programmes leading to M.Tech., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees are also offered.


The research that is associated with the Institute can be broadly classified into two categories:

Departmental Research and Research at Academic Centers.

Every department has faculty and students involved extensively in research activities. Undergraduate education is greatly benefited by the environment of postgraduate programmes, while both the curricula derives strength in a research environment created by doctoral and postdoctoral programmes.

Not only the departments of the Institute, the various academic centers are also involved in research activities, in order to contribute and benefit from the advances in knowledge frontiers, which will help generate state-of-the-art technologies responding to the need of the country.

Sponsored Research and Industrial Consultancy

Sponsored Research (SR) and Industrial Consultancy (IC) are two important modes through which the faculty supports the development of knowledge and technology. Indian Institute of Technology recognizes Sponsored Research (SR) and Industrial Consultancy (IC) as the essential attributes of teaching and research. A full-fledged office operating under Dean (SRIC) provides administrative and accounting support to the faculty undertaking sponsored research and consultancy work.

Student’s Initiative for Integrated Rural Development (SIIRD) is an attempt to develop a “Sustainable Development Model” in a village named CHHARBA. This model of rural development is one of its kind. Its uniqueness lies in the voluntary use of student force for larger good of the society by integrating the efforts of industry-academia-government-society. Started in 2006, the initiatives of SIIRD has received support and appreciation from Government, Industry and Academia. The results are evident from the fact that under the Rashtriya Gaurav Puraskar scheme run by the Central Government, Chharba has been awarded best Gram Sabha of Dehradun district out of 403 Gram Sabhas.
