IIIT-D 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). Institute began with its first batch of 60 B.Tech students in 2008. Since then, it has come a long way with 60+ excellent faculty members specializing in diverse areas of Computer Science & Engineering (CSE), Electronics & Communications Engineering (ECE), Applied Mathematics (AM), Social Sciences (SS), Design (DES) and Computational Biology (CB), and around 1100 students consisting of about 750 B.Tech students, about 213 M.Tech students and over 124 PhD scholars. In a relatively short time, it has earned a good reputation in India and abroad for being a center of quality education and research and is regarded as one of the country’s leading institute for IT education and research. The institute is accredited by NAAC at A level, and its B.Tech (CSE) is accredited by NBA. The Institute is also approved by UGC and AICTE.
Education and Placement
The Institute offers five BTech programs – in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE), Computer Science and Applied Mathematics (CSAM), Computer Science and Design (CSD) and IT and Social Sciences (ITSS). The B.Tech (CSD) and B.Tech (ITSS) are new programs introduced in the current year. The education programs at IIITD are as good as any Tier I institution in the country.
Foreign Students Admission
Details for Foreign students/NRIs/PIOs and OCIs admission are available here.
Incoming students will be invited to an induction program before the start of the program to help them transition from school to college. There will be fun activities to help the students bond with their seniors, and programming familiarisation sessions to gear them up for some coding.
Expectation from Students
IIIT-D 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.
