IIT Delhi invites applications for M.Tech admission for 2011 academic year. Presently IIIT Delhi offers M.Tech progrms in Computer Science and Engineering with specializations in Information Security or Data Management and Analytics. IIIT Delhi was started in 2008 and one of the fastest growing institutes in the nation. Hopefully it will catch up with old IIITs in couple of years.
The best thing about IIIT Delhi Admissions is that the GATE score is optional. IIIT-Delhi will conduct a written exam, a programming exam and interview in its campus on May 22nd.
There are a limited number of assistantships available. An assistantship carries full tution waiver and also provides a stipend of Rs. 6000 per month, in-lieu of performing assigned academic work (e.g. a teaching assistantship for a course or a lab). Only students opting for with-thesis option will be considered for assistantship.
The minimum eligibility criterion for this program is B.Tech./B.E. in CS/IT/ECE/EE with at least 7.5 CGPA (out of 10) or 75% or equivalent. We expect the candidates to have proper foundations in algorithms and theory, good programming skills, in particular, systems programming, and ability to work hard. Requirements may be relaxed for candidates with relevant experience in the area of security or database.
MCA/MSc(CS/IT/ECE) degree is considered equivalent to the BTech/BE degree. Such students are also eligible to apply with the condition that in their undergraduate (i.e. B.Sc.) they should have Mathematics as one of the courses and keen interest/capability/commitment in pursuing research. The marks requirement is same as that given above for BTech/BE degrees.
