If you can really dare to think beyond IITs, then you should think about the IIIT. Yes, The International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad is one of the top Computer Science institutes in the country. Established in the year 1998, this autonomous university is the one of the frontrunners in the field of computer science education in the country. Also, being one of the few institutes that emphasizes on research from the undergraduate level, IIIT has world-class infrastructure and facilities for R&D in India. It also serves as the mentor institute to the Indian Institute of Information Technology, Sri City.

Run by visionaries and some of the best academicians in the field of computer science, the International Institute of Information Technology’s mission is to deliver research-led education to promote innovation and to transform industry and society. The institute has been given Grade A accreditation by NAAC and has been ranked as one amongst top 5 institutes in terms of campus placements in the country. This institute has been placed under top 10 in many other rankings including research papers submitted and the quality of education it offers. IIIT has also been recommended as a “premier research institute” by the US National Science Foundation for US graduates to pursue their research programs.

The primary idea behind the setting up of IIIT was to provide a research university that focuses on the fields of computer science and Electronics & Communication. The research works then evolved to application of these sciences over other domains thus springing up a whole new array of research on emerging technologies. Some of the prominent domains that are taught for research are Exact Humanities, Earthquake engineering, computational natural sciences, bioinformatics, agriculture & rural development, cognitive science and computational linguistics. Similarly, some of the technologies adopted by IIIT are Language & speech technologies, computer vision & image processing, robotics, VLSI & embedded systems, software engineering, compilers, data engineering and Information extraction & security.

IIIT Hyderabad offers Undergraduate degrees such as B.Tech or B.Tech (Hons) in Computer Science or Electronics & Communication engineering. The postgraduate programs offered are M.Tech, M.S or M.Phil along with dual degree programs such as B.Tech, M.S in Computer Science, Electronics & Communication Engineering, Computational Natural Science, Computational Linguistics or Exact humanities. The institute also invites PhD applications and IIIT, in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University, offers MSIT program.

Students looking to secure admissions for B.Tech program in this prestigious institute must score high in JEE main. From the year 2010, the institute also considers the admission of students based on interviews and their scores in Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) examination. Admissions for M.Tech programs are done via the Postgraduate Entrance Exam (PGEE) conducted by the institute and for the MSIT program, a test is conducted from April to May every year.

The International Institute of Information Technology has changed the landscape of engineering, especially undergraduate programs, from being placement oriented to research oriented. With its steady goal, state-of-the-art infrastructure, eminent board members and dedicated staff & student community, IIIT Hyderabad will soon become the face of research and development education in India.
