Here is a FAQ prepared by the M.Tech students on some of the less obvious aspects of the 3 year MTech Research Assistantship (RA) programme.
My fear of losing touch with practical work vanished when I got to work on IIT Bombay's core
routers hands on! Effectively, I could study topics of my choice and try them out practically
on IIT Bombay's vast network! My friends working as RAs in other departments have had
similar experiences. One friend is a Application Software Cell(ASC) RA, and he gets to
work on oracle database and develops applications for the IIT Bombay's core database.
His area of interest has been databases, and feels that he knows more now then what he
got from the industry! To conclude...Its not that only networking people like me have
benefited. I know atleast 4 other people in my batch alone who have left their "Fat Paying
Jobs" in the industry to take up RA positions in different streams here. All of them
are highly satisfied with the move they made. Take up an RA position in your area of
interest, and I am sure you will not regret it!
List of projects and positions changes every year as per the needs of department and institute. The following is list of projects and positions available in a typical year.
