DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
( Department of Electrical Engineering offers 5 M.Tech. Programmes )

(I) Communication Systems (EE1)

This stream leads to specialization in modern communication system (with emphasis on broad band wireless communication), signal processing, optical and computer networks. Foundational graduate-level courses include probability and random processes, communication systems and digital signal processing. A number of advanced electives are available in the areas of digital communication, information theory, coding theory, wireless communications, speech & image signal processing, optical and data networks. Comprehensive Laboratory training covers implementation on DSP processors & advanced wireline and wireless Communications.

The students opting for this stream are expected to have good basic knowledge in the areas of analog & digital communications, signal processing. The mathematical backgrounds needed are (i) signals and systems (LTI systems and basic transform theory) and (ii) basic probability & random-processes.

  For GATE Qualified candidates, the candidate should have taken 'EC' paper in GATE Examination.

Programme Codes:

EE1Y -> M.Tech. in Electrical Engineering - Communication Systems with HTTA


(II) Power Systems and Power Electronics (EE2)

This stream leads to specialization in one or more of the following areas: electrical machines and drives, power electronics, power systems and high voltage engineering. Application of digital control methods in these areas could also be studied through an appropriate selection of the project work. In the first semester students have to undergo courses in the areas of power electronics, power systems, control engineering and instrumentation systems.

In the second semester, students get an opportunity to learn high voltage engineering and can further choose electives to further their knowledge in their specialization areas. Opportunity exists to take further advanced electives in the third semester besides starting on their project work. The fourth semester of the programme is fully dedicated to a project work in the chosen area of specialization.

  For GATE Qualified candidates, the candidate should have taken 'EE' paper in GATE Examination.

Programme Codes:

EE2Y -> M.Tech. in Electrical Engineering - Power Systems and Power
Electronics with HTTA


(III) Micro Electronics and VLSI Design (EE3)

This stream leads to specialization in the areas of semiconductor devices, VLSI technology, Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS), analog and digital IC design and architectures. A number of electives in the areas of VLSI design, mixed signal ICs, semiconductor device modeling, technology and characterization, photonic devices as well as MEMS are offered. The students have access to state of the art laboratory facilities and design tools.

It is desirable that students opting for this stream have adequate background in semiconductor devices and analog and digital integrated circuits.

  For GATE Qualified candidates, the candidate should have taken 'EC' paper in GATE Examination.

Programme Codes:

EE3Y -> M.Tech. in Electrical Engineering - Micro Electronics and VLSI Design with HTTA


(IV) Control and Instrumentation (EE4)

This stream leads to specialization in the areas of control theory and systems, robotics, electronics and instrumentation for biomedical, power and measurement applications. In addition to core subjects and laboratory courses that focus on control systems, electronics and instrumentation, a number of electives are offered in the areas of transducers, analysis and synthesis of control systems, biomedical instrumentation. The program has strong linkage with the Healthcare Technology Innovation Centre (http://www.htic.iitm.ac.in) operating out of IIT Madras Research Park. Students will have opportunities to work along with medical professionals and industry in developing technology solutions for unmet healthcare needs of India.

It is desirable that students opting for this stream have strong fundamentals in control theory, instrumentation, analog and digital electronics.

  For GATE Qualified candidates, the candidate should have taken 'EC' or 'EE' or 'IN' paper in GATE Examination.

Programme Codes:

EE4Y -> M.Tech. in Electrical Engineering - Control and Instrumentation with HTTA


(V) Photonics (EE5)

Photonics deals with all aspects of light such as its generation, transmission, modulation, processing, switching, amplification, detection and sensing. Expertise in the area of Photonics in the EE department fall under the categories of:

  • Devices and Components - Integrated optoelectronics, Fibre Bragg Gratings (FBGs), Plasmonics, Optical MEMS, All optical logic.
  • Subsystems - a combination of optoelectronic devices and mixed signal electronics for metrology and instrumentation.
  • Networks - Optical communication networks, both at a physical layer and the implementation of algorithms and protocols at the service layer, and advanced encryption schemes using quantum key distribution.

The program is supported by faculty from Departments of Physics, Applied Mechanics, and Engineering Design.

Eligibility: B.E./B.Tech/M.Sc

The curriculum for the M.Tech program in Photonics can be found in: http://www.ee.iitm.ac.in/optics/node/13.

  For GATE Qualified candidates, the candidate should have taken 'EC' or 'EE' or 'IN' or 'PH' paper in GATE Examination.

Programme Codes:

EE5Y -> M.Tech. in Electrical Engineering - Photonics with HTTA


The curriculum of all the five streams of M.Tech. includes a comprehensive twelve-month individual project. Students are exposed to cutting edge technology in these projects, and work on research problems that often serve as spring-boards to Research and Development careers.
