The Indian Institute of Technology Dehli, IIT Dehli for short, is one of the leading technical universities in India and was founded in 1961. Like all of the IITs, it is oriented towards the engineering sciences but also offers the natural sciences, civil engineering, and the humanities. The entrance exam for the IITs is one of the most difficult exams in the world and studies at the institute are likewise difficult.

The IIT Dehli campus is located in Hauz Khas and near other educational institutions. The campus resembles a small independent city with student dorms, gardens, big streets, and shopping. Different sports facilities are available for students as well as spaces for workshops, theater, and other recreational activities.
