The Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IIT-D), is actively expanding its presence with a multi-faceted approach. Minister of State in the Ministry of Education, Subhas Sarkar, has confirmed the phased execution of the campus expansion project in Haryana's Jhajjar and Sonepat.

The existing IIT Delhi (Sonipat) campus boasts fully operational facilities such as the IIT Delhi Technopark (I-TEC) and the Central Research Facility (CRF). Moreover, a cutting-edge High Capacity Computing (HPC) facility for Artificial Intelligence (AI) is in progress, aligned with the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM).

Expanding Global Footprint

Simultaneously, IIT Delhi's director, Rangan Banerjee, previously announced the establishment of two new campuses in Haryana's Jhajjar and Sonipat. The estimated cost for the Sonipat project is Rs 59.73 crore. Notably, the Jhajjar campus is poised to be a pioneering institute focusing on Patient-Specific Drug Development for Cancer Treatment, reflecting a distinctive and innovative academic initiative.

Expanding its global footprint, IIT Delhi is also making strides in establishing a campus in Abu Dhabi, a development anticipated to be fully functional by 2024. This comprehensive expansion strategy underscores IIT Delhi's commitment to advancing academic excellence, research infrastructure, and global collaboration.
