- About IIIT-D
M.Tech. (CSE & ECE)
IIIT-Delhi subscribes to the view that a Masters 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".
The M.Tech program is credit-based, i.e., the students have to take courses worth certain credit. Further details are described in the pages of the respective programs.

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). The fee is same for both with-thesis and without-thesis options.
There are a limited number of Assistantships also available. An assistantship provides a stipend of Rs 8000 per month, in-lieu of performing the assigned academic work (e.g. teaching assistantship for a course or a lab). Only students opting for with-thesis option will be considered for Assistantship. Students on Assistantship have to work with reduced load (at most 4 courses equivalent per semester), and are required to spend at least four semesters.
Students without Assistantship can take full academic load each semester (5 courses or equivalent) and can therefore finish their requirements in 3 semesters, even after doing an internship during Summer.
