Indian Institute of Technology (BHU)

Engineering education requires development of expert knowledge and skills in respective branches of engineering, whereas Technology development requires broad based fundamental knowledge of both science and engineering with analytical skills and innovative thinking. Quality engineering education should inculcate a broad foundation along with deeper knowledge, understanding and expertise in the branch or discipline of specialization of students, with a further inclusion of humanism, social responsibilities, business aptitude and soft skills. The Indian Institute of Technology (BHU) at Varanasi, which is founded in 1919 as Banaras Engineering College has a glorious history of academic achievements. It was made the Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University (IT-BHU) in 1968. It was in the 10th meeting of IIT Council in 1972 a proposal came to convert IT-BHU into IIT. Finally from 29 June 2012 it joined the great galaxy of Indian Institutes of Technology as one of its bright stars with full-fledged status of IIT (BHU) Varanasi.
