Academic program of IIIT-Allahabad has been framed through assimilating that of Globally reputed institutes and universities and subsequent customization of it in regards to the specific need of Govt. of India. Through this program the students are oriented towards catering the global and national need of developing Information Technology Applications as a solution of all pervading problems currently being faced by the world community through inculcating fundamental knowledges as well as higher level of concepts of the course. Towards achieving this, both psychological and physical health of students are well taken care of through sports and various life skill and cultural activities. Considering the important application domains of Information Technology, three other departments, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Applied Sciences and Management Studies run in parallel along with Department of Information Technology to enhance the scope of the program beyond conventional model. Through this model students get opportunity to gain credits for minor certification through add-on subjects of different departments thus widening their global acceptability. The programs offered by IIIT-Allahabad are also judiciously blended with research and innovation to accommodate Industry personnel as collaborators in the academics and R&D growth of this institute for greater benefit of students. To realize this, courses such as, M.Tech. by Research and Ph.D. for professionals have taken off and its synergy with existing institutional Incubation Center for Start-up companies and Intellectual Property Right Cell have been well framed. Also, for thorough monitoring of skill-development among students, the institute adopted to continuous evaluation system from coming new semester which to my view, will lead students towards greater perfection in their respective courses.
I strongly believe with all these beneficial learning ingredients, the students of IIIT-Allahabad should be considered as unparalleled academic professionals by all the globally reputed organizations.
