Welcome to Physical Education Section

One of the major objectives of the Physical Education Section of IIT Kanpur is to impart physical education to our students in addition to maintaining a minimum level of physical fitness in our campus community. We offer two compulsory courses (PE-101 and PE102), for the first year students to ensure that they are not only physical fit but also mentally strong to take on academic challenges. Apart from regular exercises, we conduct professional training in different sports like Badminton, Basketball, Volleyball, Hockey, Football, cricket, swimming, lawn tennis etc. We aim to provide our students the best possible sports facilities and opportunities in order to identify and nurture a sports(wo)man, under the guidance of experienced, qualified and expert coaches/instructors. We train our professional teams to compete in prestigious competitions like Inter IIT Sports meet, Udghosh, and many state and national championships. Finally, we not only try to just make one sports person, but also try to build a responsible human being.
