About Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Goa:

Indian Institute of Technology Goa (IIT Goa) is an autonomous technology university located in Goa. IIT Goa established in the year 2016 and would start functioning in a temporary campus housed at Goa Engineering College (GEC) Campus located at Farmagudi, Goa.The campus for the Indian Institute of Technology Goa (IIT Goa) will be developed at Cotarli of Sanguem taluka and Nagvem of Quepem taluka in the southeast part of Goa. It is bounded by Curchorem town in the west and Quepem town in the South. The exact site is about 25 km from Margao and 55 km from the capital city of Panaji. The beautiful Salaulim Dam is in close proximity which supplies potable water to most of south Goa. The western ghats are located to the west of Sanguem taluka and are rich in flora and fauna. Historically, Sanguem was known as “Sangampur”. It is the headquarters of the Sanguem taluka, which is one of the five talukas that constitute the South Goa district. Sanguem and the adjoining areas were under the reign of the King of Soonda during the 16th century. After the Portuguese invasion, Sanguem along with Ponda, Canacona, and Quepem were merged with the Portuguese territory in 1791. Sanguem in Goa is a tourist spot which nurtures Goa’s history and it also nourishes the religious base existing all through goa. It is a beautiful place filled with the memories and mysteries of the past, which the travellers unravel when they visit the Usgalimal famous for its rock carvings (UNESCO Heritage Site), Fernandes House, Church of Our Lady of Compassion, Rivona Fort, Buddhist caves, among many other sites of historical importance. The new IIT Goa campus is being planned over a 320 acre picturesque patch of land which is expected to come up in a couple of years. It will be located about 25 km from Margao and 55 km from the capital city of Panaji. For the academic year 2016-2017, it will offer B.Tech courses in three core branches namely Electrical, Computer Science and Mechanical. As part of the mentorship plan, IIT-Bombay would be the mentor for IIT-Goa.
