IIT students have a wide range of clubs and societies that they can engage. Clubs and societies are set up and run by students who create groups that meet to take part in an activity or shared interest. IIT has over 20 student-run clubs and societies to get involved in. As well as having fun, students can develop skills highly valued by employers. Students in club and society committees gain leadership skills and teamwork. They also gain experience recognised through IIT internship.
