How is The ITMU Gurgaon M.Tech Programme Different and Professionally Rewarding?

Over the years, ITM University has emerged as a preferred University for pursuing M.Tech courses in various disciplines of engineering. Amongst the mushrooming growth of engineering colleges all around, ITMU has achieved and maintained this distinction because of its unflinching commitment to quality and high standards of education. Starting with a modest number of about 50 students six years ago, ITMU today has more than 350 students in M.Tech programs across various disciplines. The success of these programs can be attributed, not only to the quality of teaching learning processes but also to the placements and career openings available to our M Tech students.

Many of our students are placed in the teaching profession in various engineering colleges across the country where an M Tech degree from ITMU is highly respected and valued. This has made our M Tech programs sought after, particularly by girl students, many of whom prefer a career in teaching. Those interested in joining industry have found placements through the University in well known global companies some of them getting starting annual packages of Rs. 9 Lacs or more.

ITMU has always believed in a strong vision of imparting education par excellence. Keeping in synch with this vision and to impart quality education ITMU has achieved independent status as University. This gives ITMU the flexibility to design its own syllabus and impart students the current knowledge which is relevant to present requirements. The curriculum and syllabi of our M Tech programs have been designed and reviewed by top academic and industry experts from IIT and reputed industries in various areas, and are comparable with the best in the country .The courses are taught by well qualified and experienced faculty with distinguished track records. The total faculty in School of Engg and Technology is more than 180, many of whom are from IITs and have excellent track records. The faculty group at ITMU is one of the largest and best as compared to many other institutions in the NCR/ Haryana.

ITMU also maintains strong checks on quality of student intake, with minimum eligibility of 60 % marks in qualifying examination and admission based strictly on merit. Merit is encouraged and rewarded through teaching assistant ships to GATE qualified students up to Rs.10.000/ per month for students with 90% ile GATE score or more.

The unique feature about our M Tech Programs is their strong orientation towards industry and research. For that university/ depts work in close association with some of the reputed industries. Therefore, as required by industry there is strong stress on advanced learning in specialised areas and practical orientation with increased lab work content. The labs at ITMU are well equipped with latest eqpt. and industry/ research standard software packages which are accessible to students beyond teaching hours also. This helps the students in doing good quality thesis work, many time in association with industry, facilitating internships and eventual placements. The students are also oriented and encouraged towards independent learning and to present/publish research papers in national and international conferences /journals which opens additional career options. E-access is available for students to international journals and books not only from campus which is fully Wi-Fi, but also from home.

To further enhance the employability of our M Tech students both for teaching and industry careers , external agencies are hired to provide personality development programmes (PDP) for overall grooming of the students. Special emphasis is laid on development of communication and presentation skills, which are the basic essential requirements for jobs, whether in teaching / industry or any other domain. This helps in holistic development and grooming of our students for successful careers ahead.

Therefore , if you are planning to go for M Tech , ITM University, Gurgaon is a great destination as it not only offers an array of good quality programs in various disciplines e.g. Software Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engg., VLSI Design, Embedded Systems Design, Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engg. with various specialistions , but here doing M Tech is also a professionally enriching and career wise rewarding experience.
