IIITH believes that diversity has a positive impact on education, leading to better learning outcomes. This admissions season, we are working towards achieving greater gender diversity among our student body. To this end, we have a special pool for the JEE mode of admission.

Gender Diversity Pool 2024

IIITH considers better gender representation essential to better engineering.

We invite applications to our BTech programs (CSE and ECE) from young women who are passionate about their future and interested in an interdisciplinary education that equips them for a variety of careers. IIITH is focussed towards enrolling atleast 25% women students through the JEE mode.

The JEE Gender Diversity pool represents our mission to include women and their worldviews in engineering. At IIITH, we take pride in creating world-class engineers with successful careers in industry, academics, and the civil services. We hope to see more women among them.


Application Portal Opens: 5th April 2024

Application Portal Closes: 28th May 2024 (Closed)

Special measures for women applicants:

  • Women applicants to the JEE mode need to pay a reduced application fee of only INR 1000.
  • Financial support will be offered automatically in this mode for 25% tuition to women students whose family income is less than 10 lakhs per annum. This support will be extended on a pay-forward* basis. Students who require further aid may apply once enrolled.

*In a Pay-Forward scheme the student agrees to pay the tuition fees of another student after graduating successfully and beginning to earn.
