- India’s elite autonomous public institute, the Indian Institute of Technology, has decided to increase the number of students each year, for the various academic programs; good news being these students would not have to stay in the hostels within the campuses. In a bid to join international peers such as the MIT and Stanford, the IITs have realized the importance of technology – based value creation in education rather than just conducting academic programs. Senior officials are planning to take their total student intake to one lakh by 2020. Presently, there are 72,000 residential students considering UG, PG and Ph.D. To facilitate this agenda of non – residential admissions, there would be additional student strength of 4000 seats in the UG courses and 6000 seats in the PG and Ph.D. courses, respectively. Moreover, this decision is aided by introduction of the Prime Minister’s Research Fellowships and a formal induction for the students. Besides, the Board Members wish to reinvent a special pedagogy to enlighten the lives of all the academicians by promoting practical – driven and technologically aided curriculum, as the youth today is nurtured in the lap of technological gadgets since their salad days.
