The Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur) was established in the year 1960. It had a massive collaboration with USA through a specially created programme – KIAP (Kanpur Indo American Programme). It is said to be the largest ever academic assistance programme supported by U.S.A.
It is a prestigious institute of higher learning producing meritorious students with excellent career growth and universal recognition. Highly scientific and innovative technology is used for teaching and carrying out research activities. Every year it is enriched by the laurels brought by the faculty members and the students in the form of research publications, projects, fellowships and industrial exposure.
This autonomous institute has demonstrated its excellence in research in many areas. It has a vibrant university atmosphere with a combination of strong academic and research activities. Both compliment each other and the students at all levels under the able guidance of the faculty members maintain this brilliant combination and help the institute to reach the zenith of knowledge and innovation.
It has developed a close association with the Indian Railways. A new project namely SIMRAN has been rolled out for tracking of trains and providing two directional data connectivity between a stationary server and a moving train.
It cherishes to maintain its leadership role not only at the national but also at the international level.
