B.Tech & Dual Degree

IIITDM Kancheepuram's B. Tech Computer Engineering curriculum is modeled on the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) recommendations and is the first of its kind engineering program offered in India. This program is aimed at producing engineers equipped with skills required for efficient hardware-software interaction. In addition to courses offered by the conventional Computer Science curriculum, this novel program offers core courses such as Embedded Systems, Human-Computer Interaction, Simulation and Modeling, Signals and Systems, Product Design etc., that equip the students with both computing and electronics engineering skills that are very much required for the successful creation of products requiring hardware - software interactions. Our graduates would find wide scope in VLSI, Embedded Systems and Electronics Product Manufacturing related industries in addition to application development avenues and higher studies that are open to conventional Computer Science engineers.

The laboratories are equipped with powerful HP Workstations, FUJITSU Windows Server, IBM Debian Linux server and network infrastructure such as the ISDN equipment, network distribution switches, fire- wall and redundant wireless access controller to cater to the computing needs of the institute practice courses. The Institute is also equipped with a personal Super Computer employing 4 Tesla cards giving a peak performance of 4.12 Tflops to assist in the advanced courses on Computer Architecture, Advanced Structure/Algorithms, Database Data Management/Knowledge Engineering and Image Processing. The HCI laboratory houses a powerful image processing workstation with intel x5690 6 core processor with dual monitor support.

Today's electronic product design and development requires the skilful blend of expert hardware and software engineering together with a spirit of creativity and innovation that is also tempered by the practical concerns of manufacturability, cost consciousness and reliability. The Electronics Engineering (Design and Manufacturing) curriculum is designed to provide advanced theoretical and practical training of all aspects relevant to the design, development and production of modern electronic systems and subsystems.

The B.Tech Electronic Engineering (Design and Manufacturing) supplements the existing ECE curricula with design aspects from Electrical, Electronics, Control and Instrumentation Engineering. Courses such as Electronic Manufacturing and Packaging, PCB Design and Prototyping are unique to the D&M Curricula. State of the art laboratories train students both in software and hardware in the areas of Analog and Digital Circuits, Control Systems, Instrumentation Systems, Industrial Drives, VLSI, Embedded Systems, Digital Signal Processing Systems and Multilayer PCB Design.

Mechanical Engineering, Design and Manufacturing(MDM) offered by IIITDM Kancheepuram augments the existing Mechanical Engineering curricula offered by IlTs by offering design courses on conceptualization, visualisation and engineering simulations. Equipped with well - structured instruction and learning resources and research facilities, the institute aims to disseminate education in the inter-disciplinary areas of design and manufacturing engineering.

Design visualisation imparted through graphic art practice and product design practice enables students to conceptualize, design, simulate and develop tangible products. Students undergo interdisciplinary courses such as embedded systems, instrumentation, controls, automation and advanced manufacturing technology that will help them to design and develop innovative engineering products. Students can choose courses among electives and pursue their interests. The program offers a blend of courses that impart knowledge on design thinking and interdisciplinary engineering in addition to basic sciences.

Students are proficient in programming in C/C++ and MATLAB. The students have hands on experience during practice sessions with cutting-edge equipment like 3D printer, Instron testing machine, Future hardness testers, Carl Zeiss CMM/optical microscope, Robix Robot systems, MAKIT kinematic tool, Mitutoyo roughness tester, Arcs video microscope, CNC machines etc. Students interact with industries through internships, projects, industrial visits and hence are in touch with latest industry trends.


The development of RF/microwave and wireless communication has been an important milestone enroute to the tremendous progress in global telecommunication. To meet the demand for more transmission band with and other technological changes, the full-time two year Master of Design in Communication Systems is structured to achieve the following objectives: To build quality manpower with the knowledge of communication system aspects and hardware design aspects and to expose students to communication systems engineering and provide in-depth knowledge of embedded system design issues.

In addition to the basic design course, courses on Principles of communication, wireless communications, communication networks, EMIC and RF circuits, and LAB courses on PCB, embedded system, RF circuit design with sufficient coverage of VLSI/FPGA are included.

The two-year full time Master of Design in Electronic Systems program provides theoretical and practical investigation of the design and development of modern electronic systems. The program is designed to build design skills that are required for today's electronic design and manufacturing industry.

The theory and practice courses on design concepts equip the students to use their creativity to design products, visualize design solutions, tackle social issues and to work individually and in teams to share expertise and knowledge. In addition to the basic design courses, electronics engineering design courses suitable to meet the demands of current and future Indian industries are also introduced. This gives students state of the art methodological, technical and scientific knowledge in the design of embedded systems and real time processing systems compatible with EMC regulations. Students are trained in industrial design softwares and engineering softwares such as Multisim, PSpice, Matlab, CC Studio, IAR Embedded Workbench, Design Spark, Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.

The Master of Design in Mechanical Systems programme is a two-year full-time Master's course for young graduates and professionals interested in becoming experts in Engineering Product Design. The main objective of this master's course is to enable the student to achieve and develop full potential and creativity in core engineering design and design thinking. The curriculum is designed to train the graduates in simulating design problems commonly faced in modern engineering industry by combining creative and technical skills. Students are given the opportunity to examine the fundamentals of design subjects together with more advanced topics such as conceptual methods in engineering design, engineering simulation, creative design and design for quality and reliability.

The course is designed to improve the skills and knowledge of students who want to achieve a high level of professionalism in product design and development. This course also aims to train students to take up entrepreneurial initiatives.
