Roadway to Science and Technology – IISC 2019: The science of today is the technology of tomorrow” said Edward Teller. The increase in the competition in the field holds the focus for students aspiring MBBS, Engineering and Research. For those who dream of pursuing a career in this field, IISC offers a challenging academic career at UG and PG levels, encouraging students to not only excel in coursework but also carry out research in the chosen specialization. IISC aims to provide core concepts and skills in broad areas of Engineering and Sciences.
The story of IISC is the culmination of a glorious dream – the vision of Jamsedji Tata combined with the advice of Swami Vivekananda resulted in the formation of IISC. It has grown into a premier institute of research and education in almost all frontier areas of science and technology. At IISC, they have the best possible infrastructure and its application in the nation. There are over 40 major departments and centres organized in six various disciplines. The institution has a rich and intellectually stimulating environment with the advantage of regular visits of Nobel Laureates. IISC has a tradition of actively encouraging deeper research, which is lacking in most of the IITs. Maintaining its dominance for the third consecutive year, IISC leads the list of top universities, according to National Institute Ranking Framework (NIRF) rankings for 2018.
