IIT Indore was ranked 16th in India by MHRD, in April 2016. You can expect that it would figure in the top 5 engineering institutes of India by 2020, due to several factors that are fueling the exponential growth of the college, toppling over some of the older IITs. It is because of the installation of the modern infrastructure and laboratories, which many of the older IITs lack today. To get hold of all this and to get the first-hand experience of this amazing institute, it is important that you study hard for JEE and clear the IIT Indore Cut off. You have to grab such a rank that can make you fall somewhere between the opening and closing ranks in the list of IIT Indore Cut off.

Birth of IIT Indore
Indian Institute of Technology, Indore, an institute of national importance was established by the Government of India in 2009. It is one of the eight new IITs established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India under The Institutes of Technology Act. Mr. Arjun Singh, then the HRD minister of India, laid the foundation stone of IIT Indore on February 17, 2009, in its permanent campus located in Simrol, Indore. The institution started functioning from 2009-10 temporarily in the campus of Institute of Engineering and Technology of Indore University. It then worked under the mentorship of IIT Bombay.
The first batch of IIT Indore graduated in the year 2013, and the institute celebrated its first Convocation Day on June 8, 2013. It is only from January 2016 onwards, the institute is functioning at the permanent campus at Simrol.
Presently, in IIT Indore, School of Engineering is offering 4 year B.Tech degree in 5 disciplines, which are:

- Mechanical Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Metallurgy Engineering and Materials Science
Other than this, IIT Indore has world class research programs. Some of the major research areas in the School of Engineering are Algorithms and Theoretical Computer Science, Semiconductor Devices Physics and Technology, Si/SOI Technology, Thin Film Technology, Bio-medical Signal Processing, Manufacturing Process Selection, Micro-machining and Nano-finishing Processes. As of August 2015, IIT Indore leads all the new IITs in terms of total citations as well as h-index.
The Sophisticated Instrumentation Center (SIC) is a national facility hosted at IIT Indore’s School of Basic Science. The SIC at IIT Indore is equipped with Single Crystal X-ray Diffraction, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Mass Spectrometry, Elemental Analysis and Single Molecule Imaging and Spectroscopy all together under one section to provide the very highest quality of data analysis to academics and students in both research and teaching.
Life on Campus
Life on IIT Indore campus is pretty happening. A number of cultural and technical events are conducted in a session. Firstly, I would like to tell you about Fluxus. Started in 2011, Fluxus is the largest college festival of central India. It is a college festival managed entirely by the students of IIT Indore. It is the annual techno-cultural festival of IIT Indore. Fluxus is 3 day event and generally held in the month of February.
Coming to sports activities, Ferocia is the IIT Indore’s sports festival. Regular practice sessions for a large variety of sports like Badminton, Basketball, Football, Swimming, Cricket and Table Tennis helps by keeping you on your toes and also helps to develop true sportsmanship, real-time decision making and teamwork. The fruit of the efforts put in by the students and support staff has shown well through strong performances in the Inter IIT Sports Meet.
Robo Soccer League
Another important event conducted at IIT Indore is the Robo Soccer League. It was conducted on November 13, 2011 in which the participating teams had to design a robot which would play soccer against other teams in the arena. Each team consisted of 3 members. As many as 20 teams participated in the event and controlled the robot so as to claim the championship. It was a knockout tournament and a team was eliminated after every round. Finally, it was the team ‘AUDI’ who defeated the team ‘white panther ‘in the final round to win the league.
