About IIT FM

Since the beginning of time, the concept of communication has been seen to exist in ancient cave paintings and writings. Such ingenious channels have evolved over the passing years and the term media has gained so much precedence over the generations that now it is considered as a separate branch altogether. That we have come a long way is reiterated day in and day out by the presence of different technologies that we take so much for granted and now the entire world is just a click away.

Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, is one of the premier institutes established in 1959, by the Government of India, funded by MHRD. The aim of the institute is to provide leadership in technological innovation for the growth of the country. The need of the hour was to have a media technology centre in order to deal with the rapid pace of growth in technological knowledge and frequent paradigm shifts in technology.

This requires a vast and diverse infrastructure and IIT Kanpur has taken the initiative of developing a Media Technology Centre. This entire infrastructure is of no avail unless there is efficient and responsible management and maintenance. The Media Technology Centre ensures that the faculty, staff, and students utilize the facility provided by the centre and takes an active interest in the growth of information and technology.

Community media is any form of media that is created and controlled by a community, either a geographic community or a community of identity or interest. However, if the fundamental premise of the media is to engage those groups that are categorically excluded and marginalized from the media-making process, it will be included on this website, even if it is not explicitly created and controlled by the community.
