M.Tech. (CSE, ECE, and CB)

Specific guidelines for these programs and relevant documents and forms are available here.

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 an "M.Tech." or "M.Tech. with specialization". MTech in Computational Biology is a new program being launched with a strong focus on research and emerging area of computation in biology.

The M.Tech. program is credit-based, i.e., the students have to take courses worth certain credit. Further details of each of the M.Tech. programs are described in the pages of the respective programs.

The M.Tech. programs will start from July 1, with some refreshers courses being done during July to improve the preparation of the incoming students for the main M.Tech. program that starts from the semester starting Aug.  (Examples of the refresher courses given here.

Fees and Assistantship

The fee for the entire M.Tech. program is Rs 2.5 Lac (i.e. Rs 1.25 Lac per year if M.Tech. is done over a 2-year period). For M.Tech. in Computational Biology, students getting admitted this year (2015 entry) will get a 50% waiver in tuition fee (i.e. the program fee will be Rs 1.25 Lac). 

Those who are GATE qualified can get GATE scholarships (institute facilitates in this.)
