It was granted full autonomy and the status of deemed-to-be-university by the University Grants Commission in 1985.
Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology is known for its world-class educational experience since 1956. TIET is best known for its quality education, carrying out cutting-edge research with dynamic and flexible academic programmes. It is located in a sprawling green campus comprising more than 250 acres in the historic city of Patiala. Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology is a NAAC-accredited institution that has been rated amongst the top-ranked innovation-driven private universities and technical institutes in the country.
EP – International Engineering Programme has been introduced by Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology to embark on a contemporisation program under the academic mentorship of Trinity College, University of Dublin, Ireland.
Under this programme students admitted to undergraduate engineering programs at the Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology get the opportunity to study at Ireland's leading university, Trinity College, Dublin. Eligible students pursue the first two years at Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology before participating in the student-exchange programme in the final two years. On completion of the degree, qualified students can apply to pursue a Masters degree at Trinity College, Dublin by completing one additional year at Trinity.

TIET and TAU will also work together in research fields. With over 100 research centres, TAU, consistently ranked in the top 20 in the world in terms of scientific citations and among the top 100 universities internationally, is known for ground-breaking research, leading researchers and faculty, strong interdisciplinary focus, and the values of globalism, pluralism and social responsibility.
On signing the agreement, TAU President, Prof Joseph Klafter said: "Like Thapar University, we are strong in engineering and management and also have a wide spectrum of departments across the sciences, humanities and arts."TIET President Gautam Thapar said that the agreement will help in strategic international partnerships and enhance the quality and reach of the varsity.
CILP arranges campus interviews for placement of final year students of all branches by inviting various Public Sector and Private organization. A data base of organizations is available with CILP which is continuously updated.
All students of various BE engineering disciplines are required to spend a full six month’s semester in the industry completing an industrial project under the joint supervision of industry supervisors and TIETU faculty. Similarly the students of MCA do a System Development Project (SDP) of sixteen weeks duration, the students of M.Sc spend a six weeks summer training & students of MBA spend two months training in the industry. This provides a system of education that formally integrates academic studies with related work experience. More than 150 Industries provided Project slots/Training to our students, CILP assists in arranging project semester slots for various branches of engineering.ME/M.Tech Students from Computer Science, Electrical Instrumentation, Electronics Communication, Biotech & Mechanical Engineering Departments go for One Year Internship.
CILP also assists in arranging six week’s summer training for students of BE IIyr of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Electronics (Instrumentation & Control), Electrical and Computer Engineering disciplines.
CILP is closely involved in Industry/Institute Interaction Programmes such as Faculty Exchange Programme, Mobility of Industrial Personnel Programme and Joint Research Projects in collaboration with industries.
