Admissions for the academic year 2023-24 are open.
M.Tech Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE)
M.Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) is awarded upon successful completion of a 4-semester broad-based academic programme, with specialization either in VLSI Systems, Networking and Communication, and Signal Processing. With the onset of a new wave of revolution being unleashed by the Internet of Things (IoT) due to the availability of extremely low cost and low power hardware platforms in the form of VLSI systems, we are seeing the emergence of a new convergence between hardware, communication, and signal processing. Its potential is limited only by human imagination and its impact is being seen in the rapid evolution it is fostering in different domains such as automation, e-health, mobile communication, smart home, automotive sector, consumer electronics, pervasive computing, computer architecture, etc. The M.Tech. (ECE) programme was launched to meet the above vision and objectives.
The genesis of this program is to help address the growth of the highly skilled manpower in chip design, communication and networking protocols, and real time signal and image processing to support the development of electronics system in our country, in alignment with the national and state policies to foster growth and entrepreneurship as outlined by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MIETY) of the Government of India, and the Government of Karnataka, respectively.
One emerging area where such skilled manpower will be needed in large numbers is in the domain of Internet of Things (IoTs) which is fostering a rapid revolution in different domains such as industrial automation, e-health, mobile communication, smart homes, automotives, space, aviation, railways, agriculture, logistics, consumer electronics, pervasive computing, computer architecture and ambient intelligence.
The two year (four semesters) course requires the student to earn at least 64 credits to graduate with the M.Tech. degree.
Selection Procedure: GATE (EC) SCORE
All students enrolled in the M.Tech. programme are residential, full-time students.
Students in the first semester will choose courses worth at least 16 credits, from the following course. Each course here is of 4 credits.
- Digital CMOS VLSI Design (4 Credits)
- Analog CMOS VLSI Design (4 Credits)
- Machine Learning (4 Credits)
- Mathematics for Machine Learning (4 Credits)
- Networking and Communication (4 Credits)
- System Software (2 Credits)
- System design with FPGA (2 Credits)
- Principles of Embedded Systems (2 Credits)
- Processor Architecture (4 Credits)
The students will choose 4 elective courses in each of second and 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 areas:
- Theory and Systems for Computing and Data (TSCD)
- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AIML)
- Networking and Communication (NC)
- VLSI Systems (VLSI)
- Digital Society (DT)
- Cyber Security (CY)

The minimum qualification for admission to the M.Tech. (ECE) programme is 65% in four-year bachelor's degree in engineering (i.e. B.E., B.Tech., or equivalent) in any one of the following (or equivalent) branches.
- Computer Science & Engineering
- Computer Engineering
- Electronics & Communication Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Instrumentation Engineering
Final-year students expecting to graduate by July 2023 may also apply.
Admissions to the M.Tech. (ECE) programme is on the basis of performance in the GATE examination. GATE scores (valid as of June 1, 2023) in EC - Electronics and Communication Engineering will be considered for admission to the M.Tech. (ECE) programme.
There is no fixed cut-off of GATE scores for admissions. In 2022, M.Tech. (ECE) admission offers were made up to GATE score of 560. The GATE score cut-off for 2023 will vary depending upon the applications received.
Candidates can apply online from March 16, 2023.

All applicants need to pay a non-refundable application fee of INR 1000/-.
The students who are joining the programme in July 2023, will pay tuition fee Rs.1,92,000/- per semester. The total tuition fees for the entire duration of the programme (for students admitted in July 2023) will be Rs. 7,68,000/-
In addition, students need to pay hostel and campus facility fee of Rs. 39,000 per semester and 28,800 per semester for catering and food services (subject to revision from time to time).
At the time of admission, every student need to pay Library Deposit of INR 4,000/- and Caution Deposit for Hostel INR 15,000/- which are refundable at the time of graduation.
Every student needs to pay insurance charges of Rs 2,000/- per year (subject to revision every year).
Other costs for books and supplies, travel, purchase of a laptop, etc. need to be factored by students themselves depending on their individual circumstances/needs.
The Institute has offered about 5 scholarships (out of the 150+ students admitted in 2022) to meritorious students joining the M.Tech programme (CSE + ECE). The Institute expects to offer a similar number of industry-funded scholarships in 2023 as well. The scholarship amount covers almost all student expenses over the duration of their M. Tech programme. The selection for these industry-sponsored scholarships is carried out by the industry representatives along with IIITB faculty coordinators.
In addition to the IIITB scholarships, GATE-qualified students will be eligible for fellowships from AICTE as per AICTE norms. (across CSE and ECE)
Since the M.Tech. programme is very demanding, and classes, tutorials and laboratory sessions often extend beyond regular working hours and during the weekends, staying at the hostel accommodation provided by the Institute is mandatory.
The male students admitted to the M.Tech. programme will be provided accommodation in an off-campus hostel facility arranged by IIITB. The female students will be provided hostel accommodation on campus itself. The hostel fee rates are applicable uniformly for all the students irrespective of the hostel location.
