The IIITS curriculum is advised by a strong set of advisors from both academia and industry. The curriculum is designed around four significant aspects:
  • Ensuring a strong foundation in the core concepts of electronics and computer science, to enable students to be fundamentally strong in their areas.
  • Inculcating research skills to ensure students pursue deep learning and understanding.
  • Practical, industry-focused projects and assignments to ensure that students are able to apply their learning in the context real world.
  • Transforming students into responsible adults by enabling their overall development, through a stream of courses around self-development and social and environmental awareness.
Starting in 2018-19, IIIT Sri City is planning to offer a Minor’s stream to enable students to pursue focused education in industry-specific areas. A minor in FinTech is expected to be launched in 2018-19, with new ones in areas like CyberSecurity and Business planned for launch in the next year.

The Honors stream enables students to dive deep into the subject and work closely with faculty on research projects. Honors students have the opportunity to publish papers and work on live prototypes and products / applications as part of their education.

Honors graduates have strong opportunities to further their research skills by either pursing higher studies in the form of masters and doctoral programs or by exploring job opportunities in research agencies or in R & D roles in corporates.

Our graduates have found internships and admissions in top schools across the world, including Carnegie Mellon University, National University of Singapore, Stevens Institute of Technology, University of Michigan, and University of Southern California, among others.

The first block of 140,000 sq. ft. of the campus will be ready for classes from this academic year, and all classes from the first semester of 2018-19 will be held here.

The mess is run by a students committee and the student composition decides the nature of food served. Currently, since there are more South Indians in the student base, the food is more South Indian in nature.
We believe that in four years, the student will be exposed to core subjects, industry aligned curriculum, and humanities courses. He or she will be able to learn by doing and will be eligible for masters in top schools in the world or will be able to join a good company for building his/her professional career. The brand of IIIT Sr iCity will only get better in the coming years, which will add further weight to their careers.
