The campus for the Indian Institute of Technology Goa (IIT Goa) will be developed at Loliem, a quiet town in Canacona taluka in the southernmost tip of Goa. It is bounded by Galgibag River in the North, village of Poinguinim along the East, Uttar Kannada district of Karnataka state in the South and Arabian Sea to the West. Historically, Loliem was a village of metallurgical artisans who made idols of gods and goddesses using aluminum and iron during the reign of the Kadambas of Banavasi (345 - 525 CE) and was, therefore, called Lohahalli. Subsequently, when Goa became a Portuguese colony, the name of this important village was changed to Loliem and it had a checkpost for road transit to other parts of India until 1961, when Goa was incorporated into the Indian Union.
Loliem has a unique mix of the rolling hills of the Western Ghats, the slice of the coast, and an interior hilly, plateau region. The 300 acre new IIT Goa campus is expected to come up in a couple of years and is located about 88 km south of the capital city of Panaji. However, the interim campus of IIT Goa is located at Goa Engineering College (GEC) at Farmagudi, which is about 78 km away from the proposed IIT Goa Campus site. This temporary campus of IIT Goa at GEC is fully equipped with class rooms, laboratories, and modern hostel buildings. This campus is expected to serve the needs of IIT Goa for the first couple of years. Mentored by IIT Bombay, the academic activities of IIT Goa are well tuned to expose the student to a vibrant academic culture and bring out the best in every student. The contribution of this Institute would be to educate young people to solve the real problems faced by our countrymen using the technical knowledge they are imparted during their formative years.
