Director's Message

Institute of Science and Technology JNTU University Hyderabad is one of the rare institutes in the state of Telangana and to some extent in the entire country .It is a rare in the sense that it offers only PG and Doctoral Programmes in the field of new and emerging technologies namely Biotechnology, Nano Science and Technology, Water, Environmental science and technology, Geospatial technology, Chemical science and technology, Pharmacy and Atmospheric sciences.

The faculty and student intake to all these sciences and technologies are very divergent from physical sciences to biological sciences and from engineering background as well. Hence it has a character of interdisciplinary as well as transdisciplinary in nature.

The institute is emerged out of schools of excellence, established in the year 1989 and it was nucleus to the PG Educations and Research of the Jawaharlal Technological University. Very soon the institute was evolved into institute of Postgraduate Studies and Research (IPGSR) in the year 1990. Since then the IPGSR was very active in offering M Tech, M.Sc, and Ph.D Programmes in all the said disciplines. The institute is renamed as Institute of Science and Technology in the year 2003 and added Nano science, Pharmacy and atmospheric science disciplines in the subsequent years. All the centres have attracted sizable amount of research grants to be eligible themselves to attract world bank funding under Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP).

The institute stood as one of the best performing institutes in the country under TEQIP-I, TEQIP-II and achieved a mentoring institute status in the TEQIP-III Programme. Mean while the institute has got autonomous status both from the university as well from the University Grants Commission (UGC). All most all programmes of the M Tech have been accredited by The National Board of Accreditation (NBA). Similarly 95 % of faculty including those on temporary assignment are having doctorates.

Being strategically located in Hyderabad, this institute has very good networking with all the relevant R&D institutes and Industries of national and international importance by having MoU’s, Student projects, Doctorate registrations and continuous academia and industry interactions. I am sure that the institute will reach greater heights in the comings years, as one of the best performing PG teaching and research institutes in the country in the emerging sciences and technologies.
