About IIIT Guwahati

Indian Institute of Information Technology Guwahati (IIITG) is one among the new IIIT's being set up in Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) under MHRD, Govt. of India. It started in academic year 2013-14. It offers B.Tech courses in Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) and Computer Science Engineering (CSE), and runs PhD programmes in Computer Science and Electronics and Communication, Humanities and Social Sciences. IIITG started operations in August 2013 with B.Tech programmes in CSE and ECE. PhD programmes were started in 2015.

The permanent campus is being constructed on 70 acres of land about 4 km from the Guwahati airport. It is planned to move to the campus in early 2018. The foundation stone was laid on 19 January, 2016 by Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in the august presence of Governor of Assam Shri Janaki Ballabh Patnaik, former Hon’ble Chief Minister of Assam Shri Tarun Gogoi and former Hon’ble Minister of Human Resources & Development Smt Smriti Zubin Irani. The institute has been operating at the temporary campus in the city Centre at the Assam Textile institute premises. Currently, there are four batches operating in IIITG with a total of 240 students.

Computer Science and Engineering

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Indian Institute of Information Technology, was formed in 2013. The Department boasts of its exception research culture and innovation in different spheres of Computer Science. The Department presents a unique symbiosis between the different streams as they are inter-collaborated to collectively present novel ideas to the research world. The Department offers has a meticulous curriculum on topics related to all aspects of Computer Hardware and Software with an emphasis on practical learning. The Research and Innovation background provides an idealistic environment to the students to think beyond the sphere and contribute through rigorous research and publications. The Department has a thriving research environment in the areas of Algorithms, Internet of Things, Computer Vision, Image and Video Processing, Cloud Computing, System and Networking.


We have labs supporting courses like Data Structures and Algorithms, Software Engineering, Digital Logic Design, Basic Electronics, Operating Systems, Data Base Management Systems, Computer Networks, Compilers, Computer Graphics.

Computational Facilities include a computer lab with a seating capacity of 80 students. Access to Software’s like MATLAB etc. The institute has campus wide intranet supporting networked PC’s and 1 Gbps internet link. The hardware supporting the intranet includes various types of high and branded Routers, switches, Load Balancer with Intel XEON based Servers having good configuration to support IT-Infrastructure on the campus.


The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) established during the inception of the institute in 2013, the department has a rich culture of research and innovation, working on its primary objective of imparting quality education and training whilst leading on the innovation curve. The research interests of the faculty members of the department encompass the wide area of applied and fundamental aspects of ECE. Collaboration in between the research groups of the department and with other departments is also a practice. The department offers a comprehensive array of courses that encompass the undergraduate and doctoral levels. The unique blend of IT and ECE have made our students adroit to face the tough challenges of ECE branch with emphasis on Communications, Digital Signal Processing, Instrumentation and Control, digital signal processing, solid state devices, VLSI, Image Processing and Computer Vision, Microwave Engineering Robotics coupled with coding and other IT perspectives. . The department is competent and apt enough, aided by great infrastructure and facilities to bring practical knowledge at par with the global standard level.


The ECE department houses a number of laboratories including basic course-based labs for undergraduate students and state-of the- art research laboratories for doctral students. The department has Facilities for Digital Design, Analog Integrated Circuits, Digital Communication, Microwave Engineering and procured software’s like MATLAB, Cadence EDA Tools, National Instruments LabView, ANSYS HFSS etc to enhance the understanding of the corresponding theory courses. Availability of Dedicated computing facility for all the department staff and students which can be accessed round-the-clock. Some of the lab components like oscillators are also virtually accessible from the hostel, so that students can work efficiently.

The very foundation of IIIT Guwahati is based on research and innovation. The faculty selection procedure places a strong emphasis on candidates' research record and future research potential. Most of the faculty members at the institute have substantial research experience in institutes of national and international repute. The institute facilitates research program establishment through provision of competitive seed grants to all faculty members.
      Apart from PhD students, who are actively involved in full-time research, undergraduate students are offered an opportunity participate in ongoing research projects. The culture of research is inculcated in the undergraduate students from the initial semesters by introducing credit based independent project, where the students execute a project of their choice in small groups irrespective of their branch. Strong emphasis is given to the thesis component of the doctoral programs. The institute also encourages collaborations with corporate world to solve various problems and to catch up with the present technological trends.
