The goal of postgraduate programmes at IIIT-Bangalore is to develop professionals of high quality to cater to the needs of industry and academia. Such education will be based on a broad grasp of the fundamental principles of the sciences and scientific methods, a deep understanding of a specific area of specialization, an ability to solve new problems, and a capacity to learn continually and interact with multidisciplinary groups. Above all, IIIT-Bangalore aims at developing in its students a capacity for free and objective inquiry, courage and integrity, and awareness and sensitivity to the needs and aspirations of society. The postgraduate programs are designed with the above goals in view. They include courses of study, seminars, project work, and internships, or research leading to a thesis.
M. Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) is a two-year (4-semester) programme. The programme has been approved by AICTE. The students enrolled need to earn at least 64 credits, with at least a CGPA of 2.4 (in a 4-point grading system) to graduate with an M. Tech (ECE) degree.
Students in the first semester will choose courses worth of 20 credits from the following list of courses:
* Digital CMOS VLSI Design (4 Credits)
* Analog CMOS VLSI Design (4 Credits)
* Physical Design of ASICs (4 Credits)
* Machine Learning (4 Credits)
* Mathematics for Machine Learning (4 Credits)
* Networking and Communication (4 Credits)
* Mobile Computing (4 Credits)
* System design with FPGA (4 Credits)
* Embedded Systems Design (4 Credits)
The students will choose 5 elective courses in the second semester and 3 in the third semester. Each M.Tech. (ECE) student should do SIX branch elective courses. The last semester will be Thesis/Internship. Depending on the elective courses students choose, M. Tech. (ECE) students have the option to specialize in one of the following listed areas:
1. AIML (Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning).
2. TCS (Theoretical Computer Science).
3. SY (Software Systems).
4. NC (Networking and Communication).
5. VLSI (VLSI Systems).
6. DT (Digital Society).
From this year onwards, we will be admitting students with GATE ECE and GATE EE scores. The students with EE background will have to go through additional preparatory courses to cover prerequisite topics that are relevant for the M.Tech. ECE programme. This additional effort from students will be expected during the three weeks of preparatory semester in the Institute.
Selection Procedure:  GATE (EC) or GATE (EE) SCORE
Intake:  30
All students enrolled in the M.Tech. programme are residential, full-time students.
