The Indian Institute of Technology at Kharagpur is the first of the sixteen Institutes established in the IIT system. Established in 1951, IIT Kharagpur stands tall for its excellence in Academics and Research with top class faculty. With 19 Academic Departments, 7 Centres & 8 Schools of Excellence, the Institute offers 15 B.Tech.(Hons.) Programs, 38 Dual Degree Programs, 2 Interdisciplinary Dual Degree Programs, 6 Integrated M.Sc. Programs and 5 Two Year M.Sc. degree programs of Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D. The motto of IIT Kharagpur is "Yoga Karmashu Kaushalam" . The motto literally translates to "Excellence in action is Yoga" essentially implying that doing your work well is (true) yoga. It is sourced to Sri Krishna's discourse to Arjuna in Bhagavad Gita. This quote in its larger context of Gita urges man to acquire equanimity because such a soul endowed with the mind of equanimity allows him to shed the effects of his good and evil deeds in this world itself. Equanimity is the source of perfection in Karmic endeavors while leading to Salvation.
