Institute of Science & Technology is one of the autonomous academic units of Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University Hyderabad and located within the JNTUH campus. The Institute had been established in 1989 with the vision of being recognized as a good teaching as well as research institute and imparting technical education with strong domain of knowledge, contemporary skills and positive attitude towards holistic growth of young minds.


Institute of Science & Technology offers post graduate and doctoral programmes in various fields of Science and Technology. The ten centers of IST, Centre for Bio-Technology, Centre for Chemical Sciences and Technology, Centre for Environment, Centre for Nano Sciences and Technology, Centre for Pharmaceutical Sciences, Centre for Spatial Information Technology, Centre for Water Resources, Centre for Earth, Atmosphere, Weather Modification  Technologies, Centre for Alternative Energy Options, Centre for Innovative Research, strive with the mission of providing quality education, student centered teaching-learning processes and state of the art infrastructure for professional aspirants. Highly qualified and experienced faculty, excellent technical staff, enthusiastic student community and effective administration has contributed to the academic and scientific excellence of the Institute.

Apart from providing academic training to the students, Institute of Science and Technology, since its inception, has been instrumental in addressing numerous societal challenges and providing innovative solutions to problems of Indian context, in the area of Science and Technology. Faculty are actively involved in executing several R&D projects sanctioned by national and international funding authorities publishing scientific papers and patents. Our research programmes consist of both basic and applied research in interdisciplinary areas with a commitment towards betterment of society.

IST has attained autonomous status and recognized as a well performing institution and has been sanctioned a grant of Rs. 12 crores from the Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme of the World Bank, TEQIP-I and 12.5 crores from TEQIP-II for overall development which includes up-gradation of infrastructural facilities, establishment of newer laboratories, faculty development, training and research activities in thrust areas.
The Institution has taken up the task of regularly updating syllabus to meet the present requirements and encourages faculty to attend training programs held in India and abroad to keep abreast with the latest knowledge and acquire professional skills to gear up to the challenges of industry as well as society. Creating qualified and skilled human resources to cater to the need of industries and academia has been our area of strength Large number of alumni of our Institution are in good positions in industries and different educational and research establishments in India and abroad.

The Institute has been advancing progressively and created its own identity by virtue of its academic and scientific excellence for the past three decades.
