Hyderabad: The International Institute of Information Technology Hyderabad (IIIT-H) announced the launch of a part-time industry-sponsored Master of Science (MS) by research for working professionals to foster advanced research skills and empower individuals to drive tech-led innovations. Applications are open and the first batch will start in August 2024.

The part-time Master of Science (MS) by research program is designed to cater to the evolving needs of working professionals and technology companies. The part-time program is structured around a long thesis project advised jointly by the company and IIIT-H faculty, with few courses to be taken alongside the foundational knowledge needed for the thesis. With bulk registration, companies can choose tech areas and advisors, as well as co-create projects with IIIT-H focusing on specific solutions the company may need.

Professionals with a Science/ Engineering degree and at least 1 year of tech industry experience may apply. Participants can choose the individual courses in each semester and enroll alongside full-time students at IIIT-H over 3 years, concurrent with the thesis project. Expert mentorship and hands-on learning will ensure success in emerging tech and upskilling efforts.


Director of IIIT-H, Prof. PJ Narayanan said, “In today’s world, those with expertise in the deep-end of technology will have a big edge. IIIT Hyderabad wants to facilitate employees of IT companies in Hyderabad to acquire such expertise through this thesis-oriented program. This unique industry-academia collaboration will provide opportunities for companies to take advantage of IIITH’s research strengths. It also allows the professionals to gain master’s master-level understanding of research by enrolling in the same courses as IIIT’s regular students and working with the same research groups as our regular students.”

The self-paced MS by Research program offers a dynamic framework to accommodate the working professionals’ time and work constraints.
