Established in 2015, the Indian Institute of Technology Palakkad is dedicated to creating an environment that enables students and faculty to engage in the pursuit of knowledge, to dream, think and innovate thereby becoming a change agent for a better world. Beginning with a humble student strength of 120 way back in July 2015, IIT Palakkad has now groomed itself into an establishment which is 1000 students strong with the best of manpower in its key positions. IIT Palakkad targets to become a multi-disciplinary institution with a population of 5000 students in 10 years. IIT Palakkad recognizes collective growth, in collaboration with industry and other academic institutions, as the need of the time and emphasizes blue-sky research and directed research as two essential pillars of technology development. IIT Palakkad embraces a vision to be a leader in cross-disciplinary inquiries which is embodied in the tagline of the institute “Nurturing minds for a better world”.

Celebrated as a major granary of Kerala, Palakkad is the gateway to the State from the North in the form of the nearly 40-kilometre break in the Western Ghats, called the Palakkad Gap. The place  is known for its rich traditions, great historical events and personalities connected with it, and its sylvan surroundings, especially the Silent Valley rain forests and the famed palmyra trees. We currently operate from two campuses: the temporary campus, in the premises of the Ahalia Integrated campus, Kozhippara, and a transit campus nestled in a corner of the permanent campus in Kanjikode. The academic space named Samgatha and the laboratory complex named Manogatha have been functional since 2019. The students are accommodated in the three newly built hostels - Bageshri, Brindavani and Tilang. Our campus has excellent infrastructure in place, which comprises an auditorium, multimedia-enabled small and large classrooms, student laboratories, library, canteen, and fully Wi-Fi-enabled hostels with mobility in Internet access. Our permanent campus is fast coming up on a picturesque 500-acre plot at the foot of  the Western Ghats and is situated within a few kilometres from the Palakkad Railway Junction and about 60 kilometres from the Coimbatore International Airport. With our excellent faculty, students who excel both in academics and in extra-curricular activities, dedicated staff members and state-of-the-art research facilities, IIT Palakkad has emerged out of its infancy and entered an exciting chapter of its life.
