DA-IICT has played a pioneering role in developing innovative undergraduate programs in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in India since 2001. The pedagogy of ICT discipline should make a well-integration of Information Technology, Communication Technology, Electronics Engineering and Social Sciences courses with a solid grounding in Mathematics and Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, which a student cannot be trained in conventional Computer Science & Engineering or Electronics and Communication Engineering alone.
In recent times, the institute has introduce another undergraduate program in Mathematics and Computing (MnC) that provides a strong foundation in Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science followed by interdisciplinary electives and project works in industry relevant areas.
The institute offers three undergraduate programs, Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.), a four-year (eight semesters) of duration, leading to the degrees of
1. Bachelor of Technology in Information and Communication Technology – B.Tech. (ICT)
2. Bachelor of Technology (Honours) in ICT with minor in Computational Science – B.Tech. (Honours) in ICT with minor in Computational Science
3. Bachelor of Technology in Mathematics and Computing – B.Tech. (MnC)
The curricula in all our undergraduate programs are structured with foundational courses, elective courses in different kinds and internships/project work. The institute sees itself as a civic institution deeply committed to seeing its students as responsible citizens. Its social sciences courses, its variety of internships are designed to increase social commitment and competence as citizens understanding the nature of societal and organizational needs.
DA-IICT offers five programs at postgraduate level (1) a two-year M.Tech. program in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) with project and thesis options (2) a two-year M.Sc. program in Information Technology (IT) (3) a two-year M.Sc. program in Data Science (DS) (4) a two-year M.Des. program in Communication Design (CD) and (5) an intense Doctoral program (Ph.D.) in ICT and allied disciplines, Mathematical and Computational Sciences and Humanities and Social Sciences.
Financial assistance provided to all Ph.D. students who have enrolled as full-time students and stipend provided to majority of M.Tech.(ICT) students in the form of Teaching Assistants. Details of pedagogy, curriculum, courses,… can be found in respective programs.
Since 2019 DA-IICT began to offer an M.Tech. in EC in collaboration with with C.R.Rao Advanced Institute of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science(C. R. Rao AIMSCS), University of Hyderabad; and along with IIT Jammu a CSE M.Tech. program each in Data Science and Information Security.
