The B.Tech. programme aims to provide core concepts and skills in the broad areas of engineering, sciences, mathematics and humanities, supported by practicums. The practicums are intended to give students a first-hand understanding of leveraging their initial breadth (and skills) in programme and applying it to develop solutions for real-life problems. Students also learn next level concepts and do course projects by enrolling in advanced courses for two years, and to pursue a chosen specialization, or to broaden knowledge and in their programme of study.
A unique feature of IIIT-H's B.Tech. programme is the strong encouragement and abundance of opportunities it provides students to do research. As a result a large number undergraduate students have published in prestigious journals, and top national and international conferences. B.Tech. is offered in the following areas:
The aim of M.Tech. programme, is to help graduates and working professionals enhance their professional qualifications and career prospects. This programme imparts solid foundation followed by advanced knowledge in one or more specialized areas. M.Tech. is offered in the following areas:
Ph.D. is a research programme with emphasis on the dissertation work. To ensure the necessary depth and breadth in the area chosen for research, students are required to do course work and clear the qualifiers. Typically students plan their Ph.D. study based on their background and in consultation with their programme chair. Upon clearing the requirements and the acceptance of their research proposal, the student works on the thesis, and its successful defense leads to the degree. Ph.D. is being offered in the following disciplines:
Master of Science by Research
M.S. by Research is a research-oriented Masters' programme, normally lasting two years and culminates in a thesis defense. Students can take advanced courses in the chosen area of specialization and devote a year or more towards research.
Master of Science by Research is being offered in the following disciplines:
M.Phil. in Computational Linguistics (CL) for MA students in languages
The aim of this programme is to provide an understanding of natural language to the students with humanities and social science background from a computational perspective. It prepares them to understand computational models and how natural language data can be prepared or analyzed while building systems. The programme is specially designed for linguists, language scholars, Sanskrit scholars and the likes. Students with a science or mathematics background and with a strong interest in the analytical or computational study of language too can pursue this program.
Dual Degree programme (B.Tech. and Master of Science by Research)
Dual Degree option enables students to acquire two degrees – B.Tech. (Honours) and M.S. by Research by successfully defending M.S. thesis. The normal duration for dual degree programme is five years. The students undertake extra courses and specialization during their first four years of study to get ready and do M.S. thesis in their fifth year. This Programme is offered in the following streams:-
- Dual-degree Programme leading to B.Tech. and M.S. by Research in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE)
- Dual-degree Programme leading to B.Tech. and M.S. by Research in Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE)
- Dual-degree Programme leading to B.Tech in Civil Engineering and M.S. by Research in Building Science and Engineering (BSE)
Trans-disciplinary dual degree programmes give B.Tech in computer science followed by M.S. by Research in one of the domain areas. This programme allows students to pursue new areas along with a strong computational background. Major breakthroughs in research are likely to come from such trans-disciplinary research. This Programme is offered in the following streams:-
- Dual-degree Programme leading to B.Tech. in CS and Master of Science in Computational Natural Sciences (CNS) by Research
- Dual-degree Programme leading to B.Tech. in CS and Master of Science in Computational Linguistics (CL) by Research
- Dual-degree Programme leading to B.Tech. in CS and Master of Science in Exact Humanities (EH) by Research
Lateral Entry is offered to students who have completed two years of B.E. or B.Tech in CSE/IT/ECE from any Institute or College. This programme is very helpful for students who are highly motivated and research oriented. This programme is for four years. After taking courses in first year the students join the regular Dual Degree programme. This Programme is offered in the following streams:-
- Dual-degree Programme leading to B.Tech. and Master of Science in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) by Research
- Dual-degree Programme leading to B.Tech. and Master of Science in Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) by Research
Part-time Programmes and PGSSP
The aim of this programme is to help professionals interested in acquiring new knowledge in chosen areas without regard to any degree. Interested people can enroll in the P.G. programmes on a part-time basis. They are recommended to initially join through the institute’sP.G. Student Status Programme (PGSSP).
Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) provides a 2 year, 3 semesters (6 mini-semesters) a year, post graduate IT education which emphasizes project-based curriculum and in the second year they undertake domain specialization and a large scale project in topics including Data Analytics and Data Visualization, E-Business Technologies, Information Security, Software Engineering, Computer Networks and Language Technologies.
