M.Tech (CSE & ECE) Admission Details 2019

   Spot round of M.Tech. (ECE & CSE) admission 2019

Updated on 30-06-19

Background of Full-time M.Tech Program

IIIT-Delhi subscribes to the view, that a Master degree is primarily industry-focused, though it can be used as a stepping stone for research as well. The decision whether the degree is to be pursued for skill and knowledge up-gradation, or also for building research skills should rest with the student. The Institute also believes that a student should be given an option of pursuing M.Tech without assistantship so he/she can focus full time on the program, and possibly finish the program sooner, as compared to a student who is on Assistantship and so has to do part-time work in lieu of the assistantship.

The Institute feels that to address the needs of the industry, which today requires more specialized manpower as each field is getting more complex, it is desirable to provide specializations within CSE and ECE in the M.Tech program. For this, the Institute permits a student to do a "M.Tech" or "M.Tech with specialization". The following are the available specializations:

  1. M.Tech (Computer Science and Engineering)
  2. M.Tech (Electronics and Communications Engineering)

Note : The candidates need to indicate her/his preferences for all specialization in a program while filling the online application. The offer of admission will be done according to the filled preferences and the merit list.
