Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs)
Information Technology is an important tool for development of different areas of knowledge economy. India is emerging as a global player in the field of Information Technology. There has been a steady rise of software and IT sector in India since 1990’s. As the IT industry is expanding rapidly, manpower requirement is growing exponentially. In order to develop manpower for different areas of the knowledge economy, education and training of information technology is a core prerequisite. The Central Government has established four IIITs at Allahabad, Gwalior, Jabalpur and Kanchipuram. These institutions are meant provide undergraduate as well as postgraduate education. The IIIT at Gwalior is for IT in Management. The IIITs at Jabalpur and Kanchipuram are for IT in Design as well as Manufacturing. The 11th Five Year Plan also envisages the establishment of 20 more IIITs in the country in the Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode.
Admissions into undergraduate programmes in IIITs are made through the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE).

Pandit Dwarka Prasad Mishra Indian Institute of Information, Technology, Design and Manufacturing (IIITDM), Jabalpur.
Due to globalization and opening up of Indian economy, our manufacturing sector has to compete globally even for the domestic market. This requires strong products with leading technology/quality and compelling cost advantage. India has huge and diverse trained manpower. The need for developing a new academic programme exists therefore to integrate the knowledge of a given discipline with design as well as manufacturing considerations. In order to meet these requirements, the Indian Institute of Information Technology, Design and Manufacturing at Jabalpur was established in 2005. The Institute is envisioned as an academic institution of excellence that facilitates and promotes the competitive advantage of Indian products and manufacturing in global markets. The Institute serves as an inter-disciplinary institution for education and research in the area of product life cycle management, encompassing design and manufacturing using state of the art concepts, tools, processes and practices of the industry world over. It would meet the requirement in different sectors like automobile, aerospace and defense, industrial machinery, engineering services, high-tech electronics, consumer durables etc.
The Institute offers B.Tech. M.Tech, M.Des, and Ph.D. Programmes in the disciplines of Computer Science & Engineering (CSE), Design, Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE), and Mechanical Engineering (ME).
