The Institute offers challenging academic programmes, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, which encourage students to not only excel in course work but also carry out leading edge research in a chosen specialization.
The undergraduate programme is designed to provide core concepts and skills in the broad areas of engineering, sciences, mathematics and humanities, and practicums, in the first two years. The practicums are intended to give students a first-hand understanding of leveraging the enormous power of information technology and applying it to develop innovative solutions for real-life problems. In the later two years, students enroll in advanced courses either to deepen understanding and skills in a chosen specialization, or to broaden knowledge and skills in applying information technology. A unique feature of IIIT-H’s B Tech programme is the strong encouragement and abundance of opportunities it provides students to do top class research. This is how a large number of IIIT-H’s undergraduate students have come to publish in prestigious journals, and top national and international conferences.
Postgraduate programmes allow students to specialize in chosen areas of interest, and prepare them for specialized jobs in industry. In the first semester, students learn core concepts and get to do extensive laboratory work, while in the later semesters, students enroll for advanced courses and work on various projects to gain expertise in chosen areas of interest.
M Tech programmes in domain areas enable students to gain proficiency in computing skills and the chosen domain. For example, civil engineers get to train in computer aided structural engineering (CASE), science specialists in computational natural sciences, and linguists in computational linguistics.
These are IIIT-H’s premium research programmes intended to prepare students for careers in research. Currently, the institute offers the following four programmes.
These programmes are designed to provide students opportunities to conduct in-depth research in a chosen area of specialization, allowing them to acquire deep domain knowledge, critical analytical capabilities, strong research skills, and flair for innovation.
