IIIT Hyderabad: Introduction

International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT – Hyderabad) is a Hyderabad based IT – research institute. It was instituted in 1998 on a non-profit PPP model (public-private-partnership). Since the beginning, IIIT Hyderabad has remained a pivotal figure in the engineering universe. Due to its indispensable contribution to higher education, govt. of India declared it as an “Institute of National Importance”.

Myth Regarding IIIT-Hyderabad

Since IIIT Hyderabad holds the same initials as the centrally – funded IIITs, students often have a misconception that IIIT Hyderabad is also a CFTI (Centrally funded technical institute). This misconception leads to another assumption i.e. IIIT Hyderabad will be a part of central counseling like NITs and IIITs. Well, all of these facts are just assumptions.

IIIT Hyderabad is not like the other IIITs. As mentioned before, it stands for International Institute of Information Technology and not Indian Institute of Information Technology. The later are the centrally funded like NITs whereas IIIT Hyderabad is funded by state, center, and industries. Another important aspect of this conversation is its admission process. Unlike the centrally funded IIITs, IIIT Hyderabad involves admission through an institute – level counseling conducted by it. Because of this separate counseling, a separate application form is also required for the admissions.
