The M.Tech programme in Computer Science and Engineering imparts a breadth of advanced knowledge in various areas of computer science. The programme is designed such that a student can complete it based on advanced coursework alone. However, the students are given the option to concentrate on a problem by substituting some of the courses with equivalent project work.
The first semester of the M.Tech. programme is aimed at providing the necessary breadth in Computer Science and at integrating the students with the instructional philosophy of IIIT Hyderabad. The subsequent semesters aim at providing avenues for specializing in one or more streams within computer science.
