The M.Tech. curriculum at IIT Gandhinagar has been designed to be highly creative with a focus on interdisciplinary skills and high quality thesis work. IIT Gandhinagar also offers the option of a post-graduate diploma in engineering (D.IIT), which is a one year programme designed to be an intensive course-work based programme with no thesis requirements.

Disciplines
  • Chemical Engineering (Research Areas: Nanotechnology, Colloids and Interfaces, Chemical Reaction Engineering, Separation Processes, Polymers, Process Control)
  • Civil Engineering (Research Areas: Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering and Water-Resources Engineering)
  • Electrical Engineering (Research Areas: Microelectronics, Signal Processing, Fiber Optics, Power Systems, Power Electronics, Control Systems, Electrical Machines, VLSI Design, Biomedical Engineering)
  • Materials Science and Engineering (Research Areas: Metallurgy, Nanomaterials, Biomaterials)
  • Mechanical Engineering (Research Areas: Thermo-fluids Engineering, Dynamics and Control)
Minimum Eligibility Criteria
  • Minimum of 55% marks / 5.5 (on a 10 point scale) in B.E. /B.Tech. or equivalent in appropriate branches (50% marks/5.0 CPI for SC /ST)
  • Candidates who have a valid GATE score are eligible to apply for M.Tech. GATE is not required for application to M.Tech. on a part-time basis or for the DIIT programme.
  • B.Tech. graduates from the IITs with CGPA/CPI of 8.0 or above (on scale of 10) would be eligible to admission without having to appear in GATE
  • Candidates applying for the regular M.Tech. programme and who are sponsored by their employers do not require GATE score and can be considered as sponsored candidates provided (a) candidate has been in service for more than 2 years (b) employer grants 2 years of study leave and (c) employer undertakes to financially support the candidate for the entire duration of 2 years.

Programme Requirements
The M.Tech. programme at IITGN places strong emphasis on both course work and research dissertation/thesis, while the DIIT programme only places emphasis on course work. The thesis is compulsory for the award of an M. Tech. degree. It is expected that the thesis will result in high quality scholarly publications and national and international conference presentations. A thesis is not required for the DIIT degree.
  • 4-semester fully-residential programme (may take longer to complete in some cases, depending on the progress of the thesis work)
  • Total minimum 80 credits in course work and thesis.

  • A typical course of 3 lectures per week is assigned 4 credits
  • Course work would comprise
    • - Humanities, Social Sciences and Management Courses - minimum 6 credits
    • - General Institute Courses - minimum 6 credits
    • - Basic Engineering Courses - minimum 6 credits
    • - Departmental Core and Elective Courses - balance of the required credits.
  •  Normally spread over first 3 semesters
Thesis
  • 32-48 credits of thesis work ( equivalent of 8-12 courses of 4 credits each); can be a research-oriented, developmental, or on an industrially relevant topic
  • Open ended  thesis with no deadline for submission
  • The quality of thesis to be judged by the research publications; appropriate changes to be made in the programme as needed
  • Each thesis unit registered will be assigned S (satisfactory)  or U (unsatisfactory) grades
  • Grades of thesis units are not counted for the calculation of SPI/CPI.
  • Candidates should satisfactorily complete the thesis work for the award of an M.Tech degree and this may require more than 48 research credits.
Continuation in the M.Tech. Programme
  • A student should maintain a minimum SPI of 5.5 and a minimum CPI of 6.0 at the end of every semester in coursework.
  • A student should not accumulate more than three U grades in project.
  • Full-time M. Tech. students will have a maximum of three years to earn the degree.
