M.Tech. (CSE, ECE and CB)
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. However, Teaching assistantship is a duty. Once the teaching assistantship is assigned, the student is bound to meet all the requirements of the duty.
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". M.Tech. in Computational Biology is an interdisciplinary program that blends Computer Science, Mathematics and Biomedical Sciences 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 start with some refresher courses being done to improve the preparation of the incoming students for the main M.Tech. program. (Examples of the refresher courses given here. )
Fees and Assistantship
The fee for the entire M.Tech. (CSE & ECE) program is Rs 4.6 Lac and M.Tech. (CB) program is Rs 3.7 Lac. (For admission year 2020-21)
Eligible students will get assistantship (Institute facilitates in this). For more details click here.
