Apr 1, 2015 14:15 IST

    In presence of Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and other state dignitaries, the Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani laid the foundation stone of three educational institutions in Andhra Pradesh. All the three educational institutes would come up in Chittoor district, which is famous for its Balaji Temple.

    The three educational institutes that would come up in the district are: Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and Indian Institute of Information Technology, Chittoor (IIIT C).                                                                                                                                                                

    For now, IIT Tirupati would get mentored by already established IIT Madras. The campus for the same is expected to be built on the 590 acres of area in Meralapaka village in Yerpedu mandal which is near Tirupati in Chittoor district. IISER for now would be mentored by IISER Pune until the permanent campus comes up into existence.

    Irani while addressing the media after the event said, “Though Tirupati is known as a world pilgrimage centre at the feet of Lord Venkateshwara, let’s give something unique to the students of entire nation (Thorough these three national institutions). I am sure that IIT Tirupati will compliment the dream and vision of our Prime Minister Narendra Modi on ‘100 smart cities’.”

    The areas on which the IIT would primarily focus its research on are, ESDM (Electronic System Design & Manufacturing), Cloud Computing, Automotive electronics, Data Analytics, Technologies for smart cities, supply chain and logistics, Clean Energy and Aerospace to name a few.
