Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are institutions of national importance established through Acts of Parliament for fostering excellence in education. Over the years, IITs have created a world-class educational platform that is dynamically sustained through quality teaching and internationally acclaimed research with excellent infrastructure and the best available minds. The faculty and alumni of IITs occupy key positions in academia and industry, both in India and abroad, and continue to make considerable impact on all sections of the society. At present, there are twenty-three IITs across the country. The primary objectives of IITs are as follows: To create an environment that encourages freedom of thought and pursuit of excellence, and inculcates the necessary vision and self-discipline to achieve excellence. To build a solid foundation of scientific and technical knowledge and to prepare competent and motivated engineers and scientists. To kindle an entrepreneurial spirit among the students. To prepare the students to become outstanding professionals and contribute to nation-building. Admission into various undergraduate programs.
JEE Main is conducted two times in a year from 2019 by National Testing Agency (NTA) (Tentatively in Januaryand April).

Admission criteria to Undergraduate Engineering Programs at 31 National Institutes of Technology (NITs), 23
Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIITs) and other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs). Also for Institutions funded by State Governments, and other Institutions shall include the performance in the class 12/equivalent qualifying Examination. Allocation subject to the condition that the candidate should have secured
at least 75% marks in the 12th class Board examination, or be in the top 20 percentile in the 12th class examination conducted by the respective Boards.The Paper-1 (B. E. /B.

Joint Entrance Examination – Advanced (JEE-Advanced), formerly the Indian Institutes of Technology-Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE) is an annual engineering college entrance examination in India. It is conducted
by one of the seven zonal IITs (IIT Roorkee, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur, IIT Bombay, IIT Madras, and IIT Guwahati) under guidance of the Joint Admission Board (JAB). It is used as the sole admission test by the 23 Indian Institute of Technology (IITs). Other universities like the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISERs) and the
premier Indian Institute of Science (IISc) also use the score obtained in JEE Advanced as the basis for admission. The examination is organised each year by one of the various IITs, on a round robin rotation pattern. It has a very
low admission rate (in 2017 was around 0.92% in IITs (about 11,000 out of 1,200,000 who applied for JEE Main). It is recognized as one of the toughest examinations in the world and is one of the most difficult examinations of
