Established in 1999, as a center of excellence in Information Technology and allied areas. Institute was conferred the Deemed University status by Govt. of India in the year 2000.
With an enduring dedication to the pursuit of excellence, IIIT-A offers unparalleled students experiences across a broad spectrum of academic environment.
IIIT-A's administrative office deals with the diverse range of issues including human resource, financial activities, research administration and student affairs.
The range of research activities at IIIT-A is broad and deep. IIIT-A scholars conduct in research in variety of fields and seek to expand human knowledge through innovation and insight.
Our students have been selected on an all India basis and are the top 0.5% of the nation's talent pool. The students are mosaic of innovation, brilliance and sincerity with a zeal for making their mark in the world.
Living and learning are intimately interwined at IIIT-A. Extra-curricular programmes, organizations, performances, forums and athletics beckon students, faculty and staff as well as neighbours from the communities around us.
The Institute facilitates high quality research through collaboration with premier National & International research organization of repute such as:
Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh), California University (Riverside, USA), State University of New York, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA),Gwangju Institute of Science & Technology (Korea), Canberra University (Australia), EPFL Louisiana and ETZ Zurich (Switzerland), Aalborg University (Denmark), Purvanchal University (Nepal), Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (Ghana), University of Michigan (USA), University of Kaiserslautern (Germany), Caledonian College of Engineering (Muscat, Oman), Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow, Russia), Erasmus Medical University (Rotterdam, Netherlands), University of Rome “Tor Vergata” (Rome, Italy), University of Abertay Dundee (Scotland, U.K) for global exposure.
Under the umbrella of the Indo-Russian Integrated Long Term Program (ILTP) in Science and Technology, several joint R&D projects are being implemented. Russian institutions have been offering technologies for commercialization in India. Similarly, the Indian side has been offering technologies developed in India for validation and commercialization in Russia. Technology transfer activities in engineering materials, electronics, laser science and technology, catalysis, space science and technology has been significant.
The First project at the center is the HCRPDB, a Database Retrieval and Mining System for Human Cell Receptors Proteins. HCRPDB generates information for structure based drug design on cell receptors proteins and allows retrieval of protein sequence related information.
Organizations like IEEE, ACM, Science Direct and Springer are some of the few academic bodies that acknowledge the work and research attempts of students engaged at various domains of academic pursual throughout the year.
Workshops like IHCI in 2009-2010 and two IITM (Intelligent Interactive Technologies and Multimedia) seminars organized in 2010 and 2013 with the later laying focus on the upcoming MATLAB technologies which found technical sponsors in Springer and ACM respectively are great milestones for the institute.
A DRDO sponsored workshop on “Innovation in information communication technologies (ICT) for defense applications” was observed on December 27, 2010.
A workshop titled “MATLAB and its application in digital image & Signal processing” was held for 2 days 7-8 March 2013.
Institute also organizes various National and International level Workshops and Conferences like International Science Conclave, International Conference for Wireless Sensor Network (IWSN), and International Conference for Intelligent System and Management.
