MIIT is set up as a National Center of Excellence under the Ministry of Education (MoE), Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
MIIT is quite unlike any of the existing universities and educational institutions in Myanmar. Its educational programmes, curriculum, educational methodologies, infrastructure, and delivery are designed to be of world-class quality, based on the highly successful model of the International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore, India (IIIT-B).
Students in Myanmar can now access global-quality education right here in Mandalay, Myanmar at a fraction of the cost. While the student fees are low, MIIT will continue to have professors from IIIT-B as the main teaching faculty in the various academic programmes till the year 2020.
The curriculum and teaching methodologies at MIIT are of international standards. They are focused on enabling students to launch their careers in global IT companies and foster a spirit for entrepreneurship in Myanmar.
The faculty from Myanmar recruited for serving at MIIT will be trained at IIIT-B and mentored to be international quality teachers and researchers.
