The long-cherished dream of the youth of Prakasam district to pursue Information Technology course from a premier institution in Ongole itself will become a reality in the new academic year.
The government on Saturday set up a IIIT office here to expedite construction of buildings for the proposed Abdul Kalam IIIT.
“Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu will lay the foundation stone for the institution here by this month-end, and it will start functioning from here from the new academic year,” Human Resources Development Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao said.
The IIIT, with an intake of 1,000 students with rural background, is presently functioning from Idupulapaya on a temporary basis.
The number of IIITs in the State would go up to five with the opening of one more institution in Anantapur under the Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies next year to admit, in all, 5,000 students.
