September 22, 2022: The department of AI will hold an admission round for recruiting 3-Year MTech RAs for Jan 2023 batch. More details about this selection round will be provided here soon.
The Department of AI is a newly launched department at IIT Hyderabad. Considering the interdisciplinary nature of AI, a separate department helps in creating a complete ecosystem for AI Academics and Research at IIT Hyderabad. The department will offer B.Tech. and M.Tech. programs, and plans to offer a variety of Minor Programs in AI. The emergence of the department is the consequence of the heavy demand from the industry on data analytics, and the need to tackle the many fundamental and foundational research problems arising in a rapidly evolving field. The department’s mission is to
The Department of Artificial Intelligence has a sizable number of highly dedicated and dynamic faculty members, with a wide variety of expertise. Currently there are 22 faculty members affiliated with the AI department. Candidates can discover the profiles and teaching/research areas of different faculty members by visiting Faculty Profiles
The M-Tech students will provided with excellent laboratory facilities that they can access at any time. The laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities including software and hardware. All the laboratories are provided with the internet connectivity.
The Department of AI seeks talented and dedicated M-Tech students to develop highly skilled human resources who can contribute to modern and cutting edge research and industrial demand in AI.
The following is a broad collection of AI related research areas at IIT Hyderabad.
|Deep Learning||Explainable Machine Learning|
|Generative Models||Autonomous vehicles|

The Department of AI offers the following M Tech Programs:
The Department of AI at IIT Hyderabad offers a 2-Yr M-Tech program for the forthcoming session. The program has following two components in the course curriculum.Coursework (24+2 credits):
The AI curriculum is designed to a be well rounded and holistic introduction to both the theory and practice of machine learning. Students can do a wide variety of courses, ranging from fundamental theoretical courses to more advanced application based courses. A course on English communication is also included, in addition to industry lectures.MTech thesis (24 credits):
Students will work with supervisor(s) to contribute to high quality research in AI.
Students who join the MTech (2 yr) TA program will be paid a stipend (as per the MHRD norm) against their service as teaching assistants (TA) to different course instructors. The typical TA tasks include exam invigilation, supervising undergraduate lab experiments, helping with course related activities, and so on. Typically, 8 hours of TA service per week is expected from a student.Modes of Admission to the M-Tech (2 yr, TA) Program
There are two modes via which a candidate can take admission to a MTech (2 yr, TA) program.
The candidate should satisfy the following eligibility criteria:
For admission to the the program via Mode R1 or R2, there will be a preliminary shortlisting depending upon the GATE score and/or the academic background. Candidates who satisfy the shortlisting cutoff need to appear for a written test and/or an interview. The department reserves the right to set any cutoff for the shortlisting of M-Tech applications. In addition, the department has the right not to select anybody if no appropriate candidates are found.
In view of the high demand in industries and research organisations for the highly skilled professionals and experts in specific domains, IITH had started All course MTech program (ACM). After the success of ACM program, the institute has further revamped it to Self-sponsored MTech program to bring it to at par with regular MTech Program, to benefit the students. The Department of AI started offering the ACM program in 2019-20, and is offering the revamped self sponsored M.Tech program in Artificial intelligence and Machine Learning for the session 2020-21. The key features of the program are summarised below.

B.Tech/B.E/M.Sc/Equivalent degree in any disciplineSyllabus for Written Test
Basic programming, linear algebra, probability and calculus
The 3 year MTech program at IITH has the same number of credits as the 2 year program, but more spread out to enable the student to focus more on research. Students who join the 3-year program will be assigned a supervisor after joining. Students admitted to the regular MTech 3-years program are responsible to provide research and teaching assistance to the supervisor. The advantage of the regular 3-years MTech program is that the students can get better exposure to research under the particular program. The students may be paid a stipend at par (if not higher) with the 2-yr MTech students.
The candidate must have earned BTech/BE/MSc/Equivalent Degree in any discipline, and have a valid GATE score in CS/EC/EE/MA/ST. The applicant must have already earned BTech/BE/MSc or, at least, should be in the final year of the respective studies. In the latter case, it would be assumed that the candidate will be able to complete the degree by the time of M-Tech admission. GATE qualification is relaxed for a) Candidates with a B-Tech / MSc (Math/Applied Math) degree from any IIT and with CGPA score no lower than 8 and b) Project Sponsored, with 6 months experience in IITH.Selection Process:
FFor admission to the program, there will be a preliminary shortlisting depending upon the the academic background and GATE score. Candidates who satisfy the shortlisting cutoff need to appear for a written test and/or an interview. The department reserves the right to set any cutoff for the shortlisting of M-Tech applications.
