ABOUT THE PROGRAM M.Tech. (CSE & ECE)
Specific guidelines for these programs and relevant documents and forms are available here.
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. And 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 also be given an option of pursuing MTech without assistantship so he/she can focus full time on the program, and possibly finish the program MTech 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 Computer Science in the MTech program. For this, the Institute permits a student to do an “MTech” or “MTech with specialization“.
The MTech 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.
