The history of HBTI, Kanpur, dates back to 1907 when the Indian Industrial Commission at its Nainital meeting proposed two institutions for engineering — one at Roorkee and the other at Kanpur.

Thus the Government Research Institute, Cawnpore was started in 1920. It was housed in two rooms of what was called Sher Wali Kothi. The old majestic building is still intact at the north-west corner of the Company Bagh crossing, Nawabganj. Dr. Annett was then the principal of the Opium Research Laboratory of which the new institute was an adjunct.

On 25 November 1921, the Governor of the United Provinces, Sir Spencer Harcourt Butler (1869–1938), K.C.S.I., C.I.E., laid the foundation of the present building. It was rechristened Government Technological Institute in 1921.

In 1926, it got the name Harcourt Butler Technological Institute. Its first principal of Indian nationality was Dattatreya Yashwant Athawale (Rao Saheb Rai Bahadur).

  • One of the best engineering colleges in India. The campus is very beautiful. It has beautiful gardens and you can also get saplings from the nursery. Best for a morning walk or an evening stroll. 
  • Okay ....Now HBTI has converted into HBTU (state University) so I hope that it should be better. But still very bad condition in infrastructure and lacking of wi fi & lacking of permanent faculty but in spite of these good placement & Good in academic field because of laborious and hard working student.......
  • HBTI is the only college in UP which can give u degree+repute+goodjob+feelgood feeling all in a one go. HBTI will be organizing its own Entrance Examination from 2016-2017.People will get a real feel of HBTI then.
  • One of the best government university .. And will be provided with wifi in couple of month ... The placements here are very very good ..
  • Okay .! lacks wifi and limited hostel acconodation. Good from acedimic point view,
  • one of the best govt. University in north india.
