Prof. S. Sadagopan
IIITB offers students a unique environment that provides them with state-of-the-art knowledge in multiple disciplines beyond traditional computer science, covering the wider spectrum of Information Technology, and equips students to provide thought leadership and gain the satisfaction of fulfilling their creative and intellectual potential by becoming full peers to the brightest minds in the world, rather than just providing the low-end labor to implement others’ grand visions. The IT industry in India as a whole is seeing an increasing shift from service oriented jobs to high-end R&D and product design. IIITB students are well equipped to meet this changing demand. In fact most of our alumni work in R&D wings of major corporations, product development groups and high-tech start-ups; many have started on their own and pursuing research in premier universities around the world. Considering the pervasive nature of IT in all walks of life,
IIITB encourages and admits students from a wide variety of academic disciplines into the programmes. About half of our students in recent years have been bright young men and women who already have some work experience, but have decided to take a break from their careers to pursue our M.Tech., M.S. by Research and PhD Programme in order to shift their careers on to more stimulating and rewarding paths. Strong interaction with the industry is built into our academic programmes, because IIITB believes in equipping students to become productive right from the day they enter the industry. For those aspiring for academic goals, IIITB provides a research environment.
Students have the opportunity to get financial aid in the form of scholarships and internships to help meet tuition and other expenses, so a bright student is limited only by his or her own vision and ambition.
