Jahangirabad Institute of Technology (JIT), is an institute under Jahangirabad Educational Trust Group of Institutions approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for establishment of integrated campus for offering multiple disciplines in Engineering & Management.

The institute is promoted by a number of professionally successful Indians who are settled abroad who have come together to promote higher education with leadership skills to give back to the community.

The institute is located in the historic fort of Jahangirabad, in Barabanki District, about 40 km from Lucknow city. Barabanki of eastern UP has been out of the technology race and remains industrially backward. But now the fort has been transformed into important center for education, learning and research.

JIT has been founded to cherish the great values of transmission of knowledge, passionate pursuit of truth, maintenance of the highest standards of teaching, and enhancing the intellectual, cultural, economic and social well-being of the minority community. JIT will provide facilities for rewarding educational experiences that develops the capabilities for independent thought, critical judgment, problem solving, effective communication and ethical sensitivity, to equip graduates for leadership roles in the professions, business, industry, government and society.

Jahangirabad Institute of Technology (JIT), an institute of higher learning has been established, with special considerations for minority, in the historical Jahangirabad Fort. Functional educational and residential infrastructure is added in addition to restoring the historical building to its original pristine beauty. A Media institute, with the state of art facility in electronic media and film making, has completed first year of the diploma program and is being expanded into greater mass communication curriculum with postgraduate programs. The progress is made in our launch of a postgraduate center for Information and Computer Technology, Management and Media for academic year 2007-08. The JIT would have a complete modern facility and infrastructure for the university level education, including laboratories and multi-media and other electronic facility. Highly qualified and experienced faculty and administration is being recruited from reputed Indian universities and will be supported by visiting faculties from USA and Europe. The JET trust of India has been extended great support from the NRI’s in USA through IMRC (Indian Muslim Relief and Charities). The vision and mission include providing affordable quality education, particularly to all the underprivileged communities, the large numbers of which are Muslims. The initial emphasis will be on the education that offers employment opportunities addressing their economic plight. The long term objective is to grow this institute into a university of excellence in education with intellectual freedom and independent thinking.

I would like to see coming to life the Jahagirabad Institute of Technology (JIT) branding as a campus for distinctive learning, and I am inviting the JIT community to take the lead in achieving this goal with inspiration from the words of wisdom through the ages, such as, “Education is not the filling of a vessel but the kindling of a flame”, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire”, “The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows”, and “Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations. Let curiosity be the driving force for innovation and creativity in learning at JIT.
