The brain child of Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, a successful businessman and philanthropist, the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) was conceived in the late 1800s. To this end, Tata set up a provisional committee under the leadership of Burjorji Padshah, an educationist, to come up with a blueprint for the proposed university. The committee drafted a plan which went through several iterations before it was finalised. Tata also endowed a substantial part of his personal wealth for this ambitious project.Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, was established in 1909. The Institute occupies nearly 400 acres of prime land in Bangalore, generously donated by the Maharaja of Mysore. The institute offers courses at the undergraduate, postgraduate and doctorate levels. The applications are to be filled online. Admissions are based on merit.
