The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Goa is one of the most recent IITs to be established in the country. Located at Farmagudi, Ponda, the institute was established in 2016 on a temporary campus housed at Goa Engineering College (GEC).
In the first three years, IIT Goa offered 30 seats each in BTech in the streams of Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. IIT Goa now offers 150 seats in BTech in Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics and Computing. Apart from these, it also offers some seats each in MTech in the same streams and some in Doctorate as well.
The institute has since then had one successful year of IIT placements of BTech 2019-2023 academic batch. The batch observed 99 per cent successful placement.
The batch had a total of 136 students. Among the 105 registered BTech students, 104 received placement offers, with an average package of Rs 17.19 LPA (Lakh per annum).
In Computer Science Engineering and Electrical Engineering, 100 per cent students were placed. In CSE, 34 students out of a batch of 45 registered and got placed. Similarly, in Electrical Engineering, 24 students out of a batch of 24 registered and got placed. In BTech MnC too, all of 19 students who registered out of a batch of 25 students were placed.
