The International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H) is an Deemed University founded in 1998. A Governing Council consisting of eminent people from academia, industry and government presides over the governance of the institution. Some of the luminaries in the council are Prof. Raj Reddy (University Professor of Computer Science & Robotics, School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University, USA), Shri R. Chandrashekhar (President - NASSCOM), Shri S. Ramadorai (Vice Chairman - TCS), Prof. Ashok Jhunjhunwala (Professor - IIT Delhi) etc. IIIT-H is organized as research centres and labs, instead of the conventional departments, to facilitate inter-disciplinary research and a seamless flow of knowledge within the Institute. Students, even at the undergraduate level, get to participate in ongoing research and technology development - an opportunity unprecedented in India.
a) B.Tech & M.S in Computer Science & Engineering by Research (CSD)
At the end of the third year of B.Tech, students enroll for extra courses at the end of their third year and complete the first year equivalent of the MS by Research programme, while in the final year of the undergraduate programme. Dual Degree option enables students to acquire two degrees – B Tech (Hons) and MS by Research by successfully defending MS thesis.
b) B.Tech & M.S in Electronics and Communication Engineering by Research (ECD)
Students enroll for extra courses at the end of their third year and complete the first year equivalent of the MS by Research programme, while in the final year of the undergraduate programme. Dual Degree option enables students to acquire two degrees – B Tech (Hons) and MS by Research by successfully defending MS thesis.
c) B.Tech in Computer Science & M.S. in Computational Linguistics by Research (CLD)
Computational Linguistics (CL) deals with understanding and developing computational theories of human language. Such theories allow us to understand the structure of language and build computer software that can process language. There is a great emphasis today on machine learning where the machine learns from real life language data. Consequently, the field is close to both Linguistics as well as Artificial Intelligence. If you have a fascination for scientific study of natural language and combining it with computer science., this area is for you. The dual-degree programme will give you a strong grounding in both Computer Science and Linguistics, and will prepare you for academic research as well as industry research jobs in Computational Linguistics.
d) B.Tech in Computer Science & M.S. in Computational Natural Sciences by Research (CND)
This program is about science - but it is not limited to the way science is traditionally practiced. This is also about computer science and IT - but it is not about creating IT professionals. It is about the science that is emerging in the interface of the information revolution and the challenges posed by some of the grave issues and problems in today's world. From newer ways of acquisition and management of multivariate data on complex natural systems to newer ways of deriving knowledge from the data using novel methods of data visualization and computational simulation, the world today needs a different breed of enabled scientists who are ready to navigate this interface. This program is for those who have the inner desire to take on these grand scientific challenges.
Admissions to CSD, ECD, CLD & CND programs are via a separate Entrance Exam UGEE and Interview organized by IIIT-H.
1. IIIT-H offers admissions to its 4 year B.Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering [CSE] and B.Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering [ECE] via JEE (Main) score. One needs to apply around 1st week of April 2018 for these programs. But for the 5-Year integrated specialized programs, candidate will have to take UGEE.
2. If the candidate has been selected for training in Informatics, Science (Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy), Mathematics, Linguistics to represent India in the International Olympiads during your class XI and/or XII, then he/she needs to apply via UGEE application but need not take the test. Candidate will be directly invited for an interview in June.
3. If the candidate has been selected for CBSE UDAAN, then he/she needs to apply for UGEE and appear for it. But he/she will be eligible to apply for the 4-Year ECE/CSE programmes instead of the 5-Year integrated program. It will be followed by an Interview in June.
Tuition Fee: Rs.2,60,000/- per year
