International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad

The International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIITH) is a private deemed university located in Hyderabad, India. Over the years, the institute has evolved strong research programmes in various areas, with an emphasis on technology and applied research for industry and society.



The International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIITH) is an autonomous university, founded as a not-for-profit public private partnership (N-PPP) in 1998, and is the first IIIT in India under this model.


The Institute offers challenging academic programmes focusing on technology and applied research, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, which encourage students to not only excel in course work but also carry out research in their chosen specialization.


IIIT Hyderabad is structured around research centers and labs as opposed to schools and departments. Each research center focuses on a broad problem area and brings together experts possibly with varied background to conduct research and development on specific aspects of that problem area, constantly pushing the science to the next level:

  • Signal Processing and Communications Research Center (SPCRC)
  • Data Sciences and Analytics Center (DSAC)
  • Language Technologies Research Center (LTRC)
  • Robotics Research Center (RRC)
  • Center for Security, Theory and Algorithms (CSTAR)
  • Software Engineering Research Center (SERC)
  • Center for Visual Information Technology (CVIT)
  • Machine Learning Lab
  • Centre for Quantum Science and Technology


IIIT, Hyderabad is one of the few engineering schools in the country to have a large number of R&D collaborations with the domestic industry, and most research linkages with the leading technology universities overseas.

These companies straight away offer students the much coveted R&D jobs soon after they join, while such positions are earned by proven performance after the mandatory one-or-two-year probationary period of work for students of other prestigious technology institutes in the country. This is a testimony to the research orientation and research abilities of the students.
