From The Director's Desk

It is my pleasure to invite all organizations to visit IIIT Guwahati (physically or virtually) and participate in our current campus placement season. IIIT Guwahati is one of the twenty IIITs set up by the Govt. of India in partnership with State Govt. and corporate partners. Our Institute, along with the other IIITs is recognized as an Institute of National Importance through the August 2017 IIIT-PPP Act of Parliament.


WHO WE ARE About IIIT Guwahati

Indian Institute of Information Technology Guwahati (IIITG) is an institution of National Importance under an Act of Parliament (THE INDIAN INSTITUTES OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP) ACT, 2017). It offers B.Tech. courses in Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) and Computer Science Engineering (CSE), and runs PhD programmes in ECE, CSE, Mathematics, and Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS). M.Tech. programmes in CSE and ECE are starting from July 2018. IIITG started operations in August 2013 with B.Tech programmes in CSE and ECE. The first batch of B.Tech. students completed their programme in May 2017. The first convocation of the Institute was held on May 15 2018. IIITG strives to be attentive to academic needs of every student. Classes are conveniently scheduled between 9 A.M. to 5 P. M. Every class room is air-conditioned and has projection facilities. An Institute-wide Wi-Fi system provides Internet access throughout the institute.
Mr. S. Ramadorai, former CEO of Tata Consultancy Services, is the Chairman of the Board of Governors. Prof. Gautam Barua, former Director of IIT Guwahati, is the Director of the Institute.
The Institute shifted to its campus on July 2 nd , 2018. The campus is located on a 67 acre plot, 4 km from Guwahati airport, on the National Highway. There is a 500 seater Boys Hostels and a 100 seater Girls’ hostel. There are 48 flats for faculty. A 9200 sqm Academic-cum Administration building houses all the Institute’s activities. Besides these buildings, there is a treated water supply system, an electric substation with backup generators, and a decentralized sewage disposal system.

Electronics & Communication Engineering

The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) was established 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 among the research groups of the department and with other departments is encouraged.

The department offers an array of courses at the undergraduate level. The unique blend of IT and ECE have made our students competent to face the tough challenges of ECE branch with emphasis on Communications, Digital Signal Processing, Instrumentation and Control, Solid State Devices, VLSI, Image Processing and Computer Vision, Microwave Engineering Robotics coupled with coding and other IT perspectives. The department has 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 doctoral students. The department has facilities for Digital Design, Analog Integrated Circuits, Digital Communication, Microwave Engineering and software products like MATLAB, Cadence EDA Tools, National Instruments LabView, and ANSYS HFSS, CCS etc. to enhance the understanding of the corresponding theory courses. Some of the lab components like oscillators are also virtually accessible from the hostel, so that students can work efficiently.
