Technical Council IITGN is the student body that strives hard to nurture and promote the technical activities that happen at IIT Gandhinagar. Students’ Summer Technical Projects (SSTP) is its flagship programme started in 2018 to promote hands-on experience among BTech First Year Students of IIT Gandhinagar.

The programme aims to impart technical skills to the students through project oriented learning and serves as a platform to impart technical skills and enhance their techno-management skills. It even gives them an opportunity to extend their ideas as a start up. By providing an environment conducive to test their curiosity and validate some of their ideas, SSTP is one of its kind initiatives at IIT Gandhinagar which fosters the overall growth in learning along with an opportunity to make a difference.

Three Teams are chosen to work on their prototypes during summer vacations and are eligible to receive funding upto INR 25000 as per case to case basis. Students are required to form teams consisting of 2-4 members along with submission of their project proposals, guidelines of which are written in the advisory floated each year. The students are expected to make a prototype towards the end of the program and are eligible to receive internship certificate.

Ignite aims to provide the students with a world class technical experience, to inspire and inculcate critical thinking among them by enhancing their problem solving skills, and promote indigenous self-made technology. The motivation behind Ignite is to provide the members of IIT Gandhinagar an exposure to cutting-edge technology and inspirit the participants with the will and wish to replicate and reinvent radical innovation in the college itself, at the maximum possible levels. Ignite creates a platform for the members to uplift their technical quotients by promoting more hands-on skills and encourages indigenous self-made technology.


The Inter IIT Tech Meet is a consequence of students of various IITs coming together envisioning a progressive India. We realise that there are countless problems which our country faces due to its population, geographic expanse, climate, infrastructure etc. A lot of efforts are being put by various educational institutes for coming up with technology solutions which could address these issues. Numerous government policies and initiatives have created opportunities for promoting and encouraging the development of technology to address the issues. We feel that that IITs being premier education and research institutes must spearhead these initiatives. Enhanced collaboration between IITs would foster development of technology solutions and also encourage more and more graduating students to pursue this into full time ventures wherein they take this technology from research labs to end users, impacting a million lives.
