Degree Programs

Currently the Institute offers FOUR degree programs.

The Institute is a graduate school, and offers no undergraduate degree programs.

The graduate study programs offered lead to the Integrated Master of Technology (Integrated M.Tech.), Master of Technology (M.Tech.), the Master of Science (M.S.) by Research, and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in information technology. These programs offer training that is comparable to the best anywhere, and cater to different needs.

IIITB is introducing a 5 year Integrated M.Tech. program from 2012. The Integrated M.Tech. program is a 5-year dual degree program intended for students who have completed or are completing Plus Two (or equivalent). At the end of five years of the program, successful students get B.Tech. degree & M.Tech. degree in IT.

The M.Tech degree is intended to provide education for students who wish to work in the IT industry as practitioners. It is awarded upon successful completion of a 4-semester broad-based academic program in IT, going beyond, but incorporating essential elements of, traditional computer science. Apart from imparting technical knowledge, the program teaches managerial and other cognate skills that are essential for a successful career in today's competitive IT industry. All students enrolled in the M.Tech program are residential, full-time students.

The M.S. by Research degree is intended for mature students who wish to learn and perform research in a supportive academic environment. It is awarded upon successful completion of a graduate-level research program, usually lasting four semesters. Beyond the satisfaction of a relatively small number of coursework requirements, the major focus of the program is on developing research skills, leading to the completion of a Master's thesis describing significant original results. Most M.S. by Research students are working professionals (some already working as research scientists in reputed organizations or government bodies), who are sponsored by their employers

The Ph.D. is the terminal, research-oriented degree in the subject, intended to prepare students for research, teaching, and scholarly careers in academic settings or research laboratories. It connotes a superior comprehension of the field and a high aptitude for research, and is awarded upon completion of a program that takes from 3 to 5 years (there are no hard limits). Beyond the satisfaction of a relatively small number of coursework requirements, the major focus is on carrying out a significant body of original research, the writing and the defense of a doctoral dissertation describing this work.
