The centre has set up a committee for the IIT’s global expansion, with the consultation of Indian missions abroad, in which they identified prospective locations like the UK, UAE, Egypt, Malaysia, Qatar, Thailand, and Saudi Arabia for offshore campuses under the brand name ‘Indian International Institute of Technology.

The parameter on which the countries have been selected includes the academic lineage, conducive ecosystem, level of interest and commitment that helps to attract professional faculty and students, regulatory provisions and potential benefits to enrich the branding and relation of India.
