IIIT AllahabadThe Indian Institute of Information Technology Allahabad that is also called IIIT Allahabad was established in 1999, as a center of excellence in Information Technology and Computer Science by Government of India. This institution was established in order to churn out enough graduates to meet the demand of software engineers that was increasing rapidly due to IT boom in US and Europe. A year later, in the year 2000, IIIT Allahabad was conferred with the "Deemed University". The Institute thus became empowered to have a perpetual seal and award degrees subsequent to the conduct of its own examinations.

The campus of IIIT Allahabad is situated at Jhalwa in the outskirts of Allahabad. The campus is spread in a sprawling 100 acres land near Dev Ghat. The architecture of this institution is unique in itself. In a serious deviation from the established pattern, the design is contemporary in nature and makes a statement about the similarities between atoms and bits. Instead of the traditional geometric lines, the campus and other buildings have been styled on patterns developed by internationally acclaimed scholar and mathematician, Roger Penrose.

Presently IIIT Allahabad offers in only two subjects Information Technology and Cyber Law. These are offered at both Graduate and Post-Graduate levels both. A new course named Master of Science (MS) in Cyber Law & Information Security has been introduced that is one of its kinds in India.
