IIITM-K is set up as a premier institute with a strong postgraduate school that offers Masters and Ph.D. programs. IIITM-K aims to be a multidisciplinary premier postgraduate institute conforming to the needs of building capacity at advanced levels of Informatics and IT enabled Community Services and Empowerment Systems for meeting the emerging requirements of knowledge driven economy and society. The areas of focus will be in developing and applying IT in the Social Sector and for furthering Science and Technology. IIITM-K’s offerings focus in the following four interdisciplinary areas. Postgraduate and doctoral programmes are conducted through the respective Schools established in the Institute. With a view to take positive steps towards establishing leadership in the fast growing Information Technology field, Govt. of Kerala decided in the year 2000 to set up the Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management-Kerala (IIITM-K). The major four schools proposed are
School of Computer Science and IT
This school covers the core areas of Computer Science and IT. The subject areas covered include Computer Science, Software engineering, IT, Systems Programming, Telecommunication and Networking, Embedded Systems, Database Management Systems, Artificial Intelligence, VLSI, Web technologies, Information Security, Mobile technologies and their integration with applications and services, etc.
School of Computational Sciences
The subject areas covered include constructing mathematical model and numerical solution techniques and using computers to analyse and solve scientific, social scientific and engineering problems. It also covers scientific databases, visualization, computational and physical modeling, scientific computing, computational chemistry, computational biology, algorithms and their applications over distributed systems and high performance computing.
School of Informatics
The real value of IT comes when it is adapted and tuned to applications in different domains of social relevance. The areas to be covered include informatics systems in Education, Agriculture, Ecological Informatics, Health informatics in E-Governance, domain-specific Scientific Databases and their management, enterprise integration, Community information and collaboration systems, etc. . Information Management, Library and Information Sciences, Multimedia content developments, information management are all the areas in Informatics.
Humanities and Management
The subject areas covered include Entrepreneurial Development & Management, Human Resource Management & Industrial Relations, Logistics, Marketing Management, Knowledge Management, organizational behavior, cognitive sciences, systems of management for emerging virtual enterprises, linguistics, E-Governance, management of education, transactional analysis, community knowledge empowerment and IT enterprise management.
These Schools also cater to the needs of the IT industry by means of offering programmes (workshops, short courses, short-term training etc.) in specific skill development. For internship, students undergo an industry or research oriented work in leading IT industries or R&D organizations. Faculty at the Institute are engaged in teaching, designing new courses, offering short-term courses, undertake research work and also offer consultancy services.
IIITM-K offers Postgraduate programmes under four schools, giving emphasis in Basic Sciences, Information Technology and Engineering. The admission will be based on all India Entance Examination, followed with an interview. IIITM-K conducts the following courses
- Master of Science in Information Technology (M.Sc IT)
- M.Phil programme in Eco-Informatics (M.Phil EI)
- Post Graduate Diploma in E-Governance (PGDeG)
- M.Sc in Computational Science
- M.Sc in Geo Informatics
- M. Phil Computer Science
- M.Sc in Computer Science and Information Security
- Post Graduate Diploma in Agri-informatics (PGDAI) To be announced in due course
All the Masters programme is recognized by Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) [www.cusat.ac.in.] and Postgraduate Diploma courses by Directorate of Technical Education, Govt. of Kerala [www.dtekerala.gov.in/].
IIITM-K offers Ph.D programmes and also conducts high end research in Computer Science, IT and Management, Computational Science that has resulted into a number of national and international publications and establishing state-of-the art lab also. IIITM-K is also an implementing agency for software development for Government departments using latest technology that highlighted IIITM-K into a good track record in the field of Educational Technology, Agri-informatics, Eco-Informatics, Geo-informatics, e-Governance projects etc.Last Updated on Thursday, 21 March 2013 15:06
