M.Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) is a new programme launched by IIITB starting from 2019-August. It is awarded upon successful completion of a 4-semester broad-based academic programme, with specialization either in VLSI Systems, Networking and Communication, and Signal Processing. With the onset of a new wave of revolution being unleashed by the Internet of Things (IoT) due to the availability of extremely low cost and low power hardware platforms in the form of VLSI systems, we are seeing the emergence of a new convergence between hardware, communication, and signal processing. Its potential is limited only by human imagination and its impact is being seen in the rapid evolution it is fostering in different domains such as automation, e-health, mobile communication, smart home, automotive sector, consumer electronics, pervasive computing, computer architecture, etc. The new M. Tech. (ECE) program is being launched to meet the above vision and objectives. 


The genesis of this program is to help address the growth of the highly skilled manpower in Chip Design, Communication and networking protocols, and real time signal and image processing to support the development of electronics system in our country, in alignment with the national and state  policies to foster growth and entrepreneurship as outlined by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MIETY) of the Government of India, and the Government of Karnataka, respectively.

One emerging area where such skilled manpower will be needed in large numbers is in the domain of Internet of Things (IoTs) which is fostering a rapid revolution in different domains such as  industrial automation, e-health, mobile communication, smart homes, automotives, space, aviation, railways, agriculture, logistics, consumer electronics, pervasive computing, computer architecture and ambient intelligence.

Students in the first semester will choose courses worth of least 16 credits, from the following list of courses.

  • Digital CMOS VLSI Design (4 Credits)
  • Analog CMOS VLSI Design (4 Credits)
  • Machine Learning (4 Credits)
  • Mathematics for Machine Learning (4 Credits)
  • Networking and Communication (4 Credits)
  • System Software (2 Credits) 
  • System design with FPGA (2 Credits) 
  • Principles of Embedded Systems (2 Credits)  

The students will choose 4 elective courses in each of second and third semester. The last semester will be Thesis/Internship. Depending on the elective courses students choose, M. Tech (ECE) students have the option to Specialize in one of the following areas,

  • VLSI Systems (VLSI)
  • Networking  and Communication (NC)
  • Signal Processing  and Pattern Recognition (SP)

All students enrolled in the M.Tech program are residential, full-time students. 

Selection Procedure: GATE SCORES
