About the Institute
IIIT Delhi was created by an Act of Delhi Government in 2008. Since then it has gained a high degree of respect within the academic community, and is widely regarded as one of the top Institutions in the country for research and education in IT areas – in particular Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE), Applied Mathematics (AM) and Computational Biology (CB). It has about 40 full time faculty members, all of whom are PhD from fine institutions across the world (more than half have PhDs from US or Europe), with almost all having significant global exposure. The regular faculty is supported by visiting faculty (appx 10) and guest faculty for teaching courses. There are a number of adjunct faculty from industry as well as other Institutions.
Education and Placement
The Institute offers three BTech programs – in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE), and Computer Science and Applied Mathematics (CSAM). The BTech (CSAM) is a new program introduced in the current year. The education programs are as good as any Tier I institution in the country.

Incoming students will be invited to an induction program before the start of the semester to help them transition from school to college. There will be fun activities to help the students bond with their seniors, and programming familiarization sessions to gear them up for some coding.
Expectation from Students
IIIT Delhi takes academics very seriously and expects all its students to do so. Each semester a student normally does about 5 courses, and each course has a workload of about 10 hrs/week. Hence a student should be ready to work hard – that indeed is the only way to learn.
