The driving force behind the 21st century is the development of knowledge-intensive societies. This awareness has led to the creation of new institutes of higher learning in India in the past few years. Indian Institute of Technology Indore, established in 2009, is part of this mega-project that envisages India as a Global Technology Leader. Continuing with the tradition of the older IITs, IIT Indore aims to play an active role in this task of propelling India on her growth-trajectory by focusing on education, research and development. IIT Indore visualizes this mission within the context of larger humanistic concerns.
