The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Dharwad, will start its academic activities in July this year by admitting 40 students each to BTech programmes in Computer Science, Mechanical, and Electronics and Communication engineering.

The IIT-D will start functioning at the Water and Land Management Institute (Walmi) located next to the Dharwad bench of the High Court of Karnataka on the Pune-Bengaluru national highway, until a sprawling permanent campus is developed close-by.

A six-member technical team of IIT-Bombay, headed by Prof Shivaprasad, visited Dharwad on Friday and inspected the facilities available at Walmi. IIT-Bombay is the mentor for IIT-Dharwad. Profs Narayan Punekar, Manjunath, S V Prabhu, officers Milind Gokhale and Pradeep Tirumar were other members of the team. The team went round the Walmi premises as well as the Shri CB Guttal Ayurvedic Medical College and Hospital campus on Garag road and inspected the infrastructure available there.

Prof Narayan Punekar, dean (academics), IIT-Bombay, expressed satisfaction over the facilities being created at Walmi and said IIT-Dharwad would start classes in July. The results of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) results will be declared on June 10. The district administration has been asked to provide three laboratories for Chemistry, Physics and Computer Science, he added.
