Overview

Indian Institute of Technology, (IIT-K), Kharagpur was established in 1950 at Hijli. The Institute started its journey in the old Hijli Detention Camp where some of the great freedom fighters toiled and sacrificed their lives for the independence of the country. The history of IIT Kharagpur is thus intimately linked with the history of the Hijli Detention Camp. This is possibly one of the very few Institutions all over the world which started life in a prison house.

There were 224 freshers and 42 teachers in 1951 when the first session started. The class rooms, laboratories and the administrative office were housed in the historic building of the Hijli Detention Camp. The Institute started its academic program with only ten departments. In 1952, Pandit Nehru laid the foundation stone of the new building. Currently they have about 550 faculty, 1700 employees and 9000 students on the campus.
