Founded in 2000 and given the status of an "Institute of National Importance" in 2014, the Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad is one of the most foremost tech colleges of India, rivaling NITs and IITs in terms of infrastructure, facilities, and, where it matters most, in placements. With thousands of well-placed alumni all over the map, it has built up its reputation as a prime candidate for up-and-coming engineers.
As is the case with any other college, IIIT-A is defined by its student life. From cultural societies to sports events to technical societies, the students here are up to all sorts of extra-curricular activities, both in the service of thrills and skills. The annual cultural festival, Effervescence, has been host to some of India's most popular celebrities, while the techno-cultural festival Aparoksha continues to grow in scope and significance with each passing year, hosting a number of International events.
