M.Tech. Programme in Computer Science and Engineering (Online)




To enable working professionals to pursue their dream of higher education, IIIT Guwahati has come with an exciting Online M.Tech. programme along with its existing On-Campus M.Tech programme. We invite you to join us on our exciting journey of learning.



IIIT Guwahati is an Institute of National Importance set up by an Act of Parliament. The Act authorises the Institute to offer degree programmes with the approval of their Board. UGC automatically recognises all degree programmes floated by IIIT Guwahati. IIIT Guwahati does not come under the purview of AICTE. AICTE therefore does not object to any degrees offered by Institutes of National Importance. The situation is the same for all IIITs under the Government, all NITs, and all IITs.
