The college is very serious about academics and attendance. Low attendance can cost you grades!

However, it is a rare occurrence since the main focus of students here is study and research.

The main difference between IIIT-H and other engineering colleges is the curriculum. The focus is on the department you choose from the very first semester with some foundation courses on computer science or electronics. In many semesters, projects are included as part of the curriculum so that everyone can apply their theoretical knowledge. As their website says, “The programme is designed to create innovators and researchers.”

In the initial stages of the programme, basic introductory courses are covered such as databases and algorithms. In the later stages, students can focus on the fields of their interest.


The placements are very good given the quality of education the institute provides. It often beats top IITs in term of average package which was Rs. 18.53 lpa for CSE and Rs. 13.44 lpa for ECE in 2016, with the highest being Rs.35 lpa for CSE and Rs.27.30 lpa for ECE. The institute boats of 100% placements for B.Tech and M.Tech and nearly 100% for MS.
