IIITM Gwalior Society constituted a Campus Visioning group to develop a vision for the institute campus and requirement of facilities on long-term basis. On the recommendation of the campus visioning committee, the architect was selected through a limited competition amongst architects who had, in the past, designed similar level institutions following the Architectural Council of India norms. A jury headed by Shri M.K.Kaw, then Secretary Education, Govt. of India, selected M/S Suresh Goel & Associate, New Delhi as the architect for the institute.
Since the institute was to be established for providing quality education and facilities for research to act as a resource in the area of IT and Management, it was decided by the visioning group that the institute academic building must convey the spirit of excellence and radiate the message of high quality.
