Kanpur Indo-American Programme
Kanpur Indo-American Programme (KIAP) was started in 1962 for the development of IIT-K. Under the programme, the institute was funded by the US from 1962 to 1972. Even many faculty members came from US.. However, later, the programme lost momentum and the assistance from US stopped.Now after three decades, when IIT-K is rated among the top technical institutes in the world, the US has again decided to enter into collaboration with the institute.IIT-K has collaboration with Ohio State University, USA, Yokohama University, Japan and others.
