System & Signal Processing [SSP]

The Master of Technology programmes are two-year course-based programmes. Students take about 12 courses from within and outside the department, according to the programme requirements. The courses offered are of high standard, many include advanced topics and topics based on recent research. The M.Tech (Signal Processing) programme is offered jointly with the Department of Electrical Engineering (EE).

The M.Tech project forms a major part of the course. Students work on their project with the guidance of a faculty advisor for over a year.

The course requirements for M.Tech (Signal Processing) are as follows.

Students are required to complete a minimum of 64 credits for M.Tech (Signal Processing) based on the following structure.

Duration: 2 years (64 credits)
