Defence Institute of Advanced Technology (DIAT) is the Premier Deemed University under the Department of Defence Research & Development, Ministry of Defence, Government of India. DIAT (DU) is specialized in the training of officers of Indian Armed forces (Army, Navy & Air Force), Paramilitary forces (CRPF/BSF/ITB/SSB etc.), Coast Guard, Defence Research Organizations, IOFS (Indian Ordnance Factories), Defence PSUs (Like HAL, BEL, BDL etc), ship building agencies like Cochin & Goa Shipyards, Mazgaon Dockyard and armed forces of friendly countries (like Srilanka, Afghanistan, African Nations etc.) and other central and state government agencies.

During the last few years, researchers in DIAT have filed more than 50 patent applications with Indian Patent Office and published more than 1000 papers in various journals of International Repute.
Indian Armament Studies, (Now DIAT) is founded by Dr. Patrick Blackett (Nobel Laureate-Physics-1948) and Dr. D S Kothari (Padma Bushan & Padma Vibhushan) on 1952.
Dr. Patrick Blackett, Nobel Laureate (Physics-1948) and a Military Expert, Royal British Navy was invited by Shri. Jawahar Lal Nehru, the Prime Minister of India to ���Indianize the military’ during 1950s. Blackett was awarded the Royal Medal by the Royal Society in 1940 and the American Medal for Merit in 1946. Patrick Blackett was Head of the Physics Department of Imperial College London . The current Physics department building of Imperial College is named the Blackett Laboratory.
Dr. D S Kothari (Padma Bushan & Padma Vibhushan), Scientific Advisor to Ministry of Defence, Govt. of India is an Outstanding Physicist, Educationalist and considered as the Architect of Defence Science in India. Founder of most of the DRDO labs in India ie. Naval Dockyard Laboratory (later renamed Naval Chemical and Metallurgical Laboratory), Mumbai, Indian Naval Physical Laboratory, Kochi, Centre for Fire Research, Delhi, Solid State Physics Laboratory, Delhi, Defence Food Research Laboratory, Mysore, Defence Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences, Chennai, Directorate of Psychological Research, New Delhi, Defence Electronics and Research Laboratory, Hyderabad, Scientific Evaluation Group, Delhi, Technical Ballistic Research Laboratory, Chandigarh. D S Kothari Played a crucial role in setting up of UGC and NCERT.
Dr. D S Kothari and Dr. P Blackett worked together in Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge University under the guidance of Lord Ernst Rutherford, the Father of Nuclear physics.
In 1967, Indian Armament Studies was renamed as "Institute of Armament Technology" (IAT), which moved to its present location at Girinagar, Pune. From the relatively narrow scope of Armament Studies alone in the Fifties, the role of the institute was considerably enlarged by the Defence R&D Council in 1964 and further in 1981.
On the basis of accreditation by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), Pune University recognised eight courses for the award of ME degree in 1980. In the year 2000, the institute acquired the status of a Deemed University. IAT has been renamed as DIAT w.e.f. 1 April 2006.
DIAT ranked 35th position (under University category) in the Nation's first National Institutional Ranking Framework introduced by the Ministry of Human Resources & Development during 2016.
DIAT is supported by 52 laboratories of Defence Research & Development Organization, Defence PSUs and Indian Armed Forces to conduct collaborative research works and to validate, assess various innovative technologies developed by its students and researchers.
DIAT is engaged in imparting technical education, in niche areas at PG (M.Tech) & Ph. D levels over the last 60 years, in its various forms & capacities. The main focus of the institute is to evolve as an innovative unique teaching and research university to develop indigenous contemporary defence-related technologies. The University is spread over 496 acres in a scenic beautiful location, overlooking Khadakwasla dam, in Sahyadri Hills. The University has been awarded various education excellence awards.
The University has well-equipped laboratories with the latest equipment and simulation/analysis software. The M. Tech programmes are designed to include Course of Study, Seminars, Project/Thesis, Practice School & Industry visit through which a student may develop his / her concepts and intellectual skills. Above all, the students are encouraged to develop a capacity for free and objectives enquiry, courage and integrity, awareness and sensitivity to the needs and aspirations of society. The emphasis is on practicals & use of the software. The education system is CBCS where teaching is done by well-qualified faculty drawn from DIAT and serving / retired scientists & officers of DRDO, Services, ISRO, IITs, various R&D and teaching institutes in India and abroad. DIAT has MoUs with various Industries in India, Universities & Establishments across the world. DIAT has an active Placement Cell. The uniqueness of DIAT is that students have an opportunity to interact with service officers, experienced scientists, researchers of DRDO and other defence establishments and can Share their field experience with them. The students have opportunities to visit DRDO laboratories & get the opportunity to listen and interact with scientists engaged in various disciplines carrying out state of the art, Research & Development in Defence Technologies.
In order to meet the specific and futuristic training requirements of Armed Forces, DIAT (DU) was bifurcated to form Military Institute of Technology (MILIT). MILIT, Pune is an inter-service institution of Integrated Defence Staff, an organisation responsible for fostering coordination and enabling prioritisation across the different branches of the Indian Armed Forces. MILIT trains officers of the three Services of Indian Armed Forces which are Army, Navy, Air Force and officers from friendly foreign countries for command and staff appointments. It conducts short term certificate courses (TTC, TSOC) for the Officers of the Three services.
