M. Tech. Admissions

The CSE department invites outstanding candidates to pursue the degree of Masters of Technology (M. Tech.) at IIT Bombay. The M. Tech. programme lets students do a number of specialized courses, as well as lets them explore their research and development skills through an year long project.

The courses at the CSE department will challenge your intellect and advance your knowledge in various subjects in Computer Science while the M. Tech. project will let you be a part of the various exciting research and development projects going on in the Department.

An M. Tech. at CSE-IITB will prepare you for both the highly sought-after industry jobs, or if research is what beckons you, for a Ph.D. in Computer Science.

Why pursue post-graduate studies?

These are exciting times for the ICT and IT-enabled industry in India. In the long run, our role in the world of computing will be defined not by the export of inexpensive commodity services, but by the quality of intellectual property that we produce and own through core technology development. Human intellectual capital is our single most precious asset. A post-graduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering is a must if you aspire to set yourself apart from the anonymous mass of "computer professionals" and to assume a leading role in transforming the industry, be it through research, advanced development, teaching, or entrepreneurship.
