M.Tech. Programme in Electronics and Communication Engineering

Specializations: (1) Communication and Signal Processing [Both in Online Mode and On-campus Mode]
(2) VLSI and Embedded Systems [Only in On-campus Mode]

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.


The programs are designed to provide a wide-ranging education in theoretical as well as practical aspects of Communication, signal processing and VLSI domain, with respect to the current demands of communication and VLSI industries. Students will be provided in-depth knowledge of core subjects, but will have the flexibility to choose their subjects of interest from a diverse list of trending electives. The course is aimed to prepare the students for a rewarding career in their respective specializations both in academics as well as research and development industries so that they can contribute novel ideas towards the advancement of technologies.
