IIIT Bangalore is a premier institute focused on Post-Graduate Computer Science and Electronics education and research, located in the heart of Electronic City, Bangalore. The institute facilitates the placement process each year for the benefit of its students. The Placement process covers summer internships for pre-final year students as well as internship and full-time employment (FTE) for final year students. Several students who pursue summer internships are offered full time jobs by their respective company.

Since the founding of the Institute in 1999, IIIT Bangalore has enjoyed 100% placement every year, on account of the strong support of the Industry and the growing base of talented alumni.

The summer internship process begins in September for pre-final years students. Companies carry out tests and interviews after which, the selected students are offered 2-month internships. Most companies that offer summer internships also offer Pre Placement Offers to interns who would then join them either in January or directly in July (once they graduate). These students have full time job offers before the beginning of the final placement season. Since the last few years, around 15% of students are offered full time jobs through Pre Placement offers given during summer internships.

The final placement season, for both internship and FTE, usually opens in July, where the companies and the institute get in touch and eventually schedule a date for placements in the coming months. Companies carry out rigorous placement drives following which the selected students get 4-6 month internship offers and/or full time job offers. By the end of he placement season, 100% of all students applying for placements have job and internship offers.

Our specially designed courses make the students cognitive of the current technologies and practices, thereby equipping them with the tools and knowledge to solve contemporary real problems. Mentioned below are the programs offered:

2 Years M.Tech Programme with specializations in following areas:

The M.Tech Programme in Computer Science (CSE) is awarded upon successful completion of a 4-semester broad-based academic program in CSE, a program which incorporates essential elements of traditional computer science and addresses concepts that enable students to be ready for working on the newest of technologies. The M.Tech in CSE offers the following specializations.

  1. Theory and Systems
  2. Data Science
  3. Networking and Communication
  4. Signal Processing and Pattern recognition

The M.Tech Programme in Electronics and Communication (ECE) is designed to address the development of highly skilled manpower primarily in VLSI systems design and Signal Processing & Pattern Recognition, which is needed to support electronics system design and manufacturing in our country. The specializations are as follows.

  1. VLSI Systems
  2. Networking and Communication
  3. Signal Processing and Pattern Recognition

The focus areas of the VLSI specialization includes Digital & Analog VLSI Design, Functional Verification of SoCs and Design for Testability (DFT), Internet of Things, Real Time Systems, Inter Device Communication, Device Driver Development, Firmware and ARM Architecture. The SPPR specialization focuses on Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Digital Image Processing and Automatic Speech Recognition. Other topics covered in Mtech ECE include High Level Synthesis, Advanced Analog Design and ASIC flow.

5 Years Integrated M.Tech. Programme:

The iMtech Program is a 5 year intensive program that makes students adept in handling the real time challenges faced by the industry. Building from the ground up, the students are first made proficient in the foundations of engineering and technology. Consequently, they are introduced to the different core branches of Computer Science (CSE) and Electronics & Communications (ECE) that help the students to get a holistic view of the domain and thereby allows them to decide on their Specialization.

The specializations are in the following areas:

  1. Theoretical Computer Science
  2. Data Science
  3. Networking & Communication
  4. Software Engineering
  5. Microelectronics and VLSI
  6. System on Chip
  7. Embedded Systems
  8. Signal Processing and Pattern Recognition

2 Years M.Sc. in Digital society:

This programme aims to create a group of professional experts/researchers with a nuanced and multidimensional understanding of today’s Information Age. Students gain insights into the design of digital technologies, and the policy challenges of deploying such technologies, with a broad-based training that draws from computer science, engineering, research methods, management, economics and other social sciences.
