About IIT Kanpur

The Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur) was established in the year 1960. The Parliament of India passed the “Institutes of Technology Act 1961” declaring all the IITs as “Institutions of National Importance”. Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur is engaged in carrying out original research of significance and technology development at the cutting edge. It imparts training to students so that they become competent and motivated engineers and scientists. The Institute celebrates freedom of thought, cultivates vision and encourages growth, but also inculcates human values and concern for the environment and the society.

How to Reach

  1. Nearest airport is Lucknow (LKO), about 70 km (~1.5 hrs drive) from IIT Kanpur, is well connected by domestic flights, and has few international connections too. Pick up by Taxis/private vehicles would be arranged from LKO to IIT Kanpur.
  2. Kanpur Central railway station (CNB), about 12 km from IITK, is a major rail head. It is well connected to cities like Delhi, and other parts of country. Pick up by Taxis/private vehicles would be arranged from railway station to IIT Kanpur.
