About the Institute:

IIT Bhilai, located in the state of Chhattisgarh, is one of the youngest IITs established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (Government of India). The first academic session at IIT Bhilai started in August 2016, with the BTech program in three engineering disciplines, viz. Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering – the strength of each discipline was about 40 students. Please see the seat matrix below for details of the proposed intake for the upcoming 2018-19 academic year.

In 2017, Master and Doctoral programs were also started in the disciplines of Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.

At present the institute has on its roster about 25 extremely competent faculty members with vast experience of working in the top-ranking labs and universities in India and abroad. The number of faculty members is expected to grow rapidly in coming months.

·Permanent Campus:

 The site for permanent campus of IIT Bhilai is situated in the city of Bhilai, the host of Bhilai Steel Plant: one of the largest in India. The campus will be constructed in two parcels of land: one at Kuthelabhata village (344 acres), and another at Sirsa Khurd of district Durg (90 acres). The campus is about 6 km from Durg Junction railway station, and about 50 km from Swami Vivekananda Airport at Raipur. In addition, an extension center is also planned at Naya Raipur (10 acres). The construction work at the permanent campus is expected to start this year.


Temporary Campus

Academic Structure:

IIIT Bhilai offers a 4-year BTech program in the following three engineering disciplines: Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.


The BTech program (normally) runs for four consecutive academic years, where each academic year consists of two regular semesters – termed as the Monsoon and the Winter semesters – and a Summer semester. The Monsoon semester begins around the last week of July, and ends in the last week of November. The Winter semester starts around the first week of January, and ends in the first week of May. In between the Monsoon and Winter semesters, the institute also runs a Summer semester that normally starts in the second week of May and ends in the first week of July.

Before a semester begins, every student is required to register for the relevant courses based on the requirements of the program he/she is enrolled in. BTech students are not required to stay on campus during the Summer semester. Institute may offer regular courses in the Summer semester, and the BTech students interested in taking such courses may register for the Summer semester.

 IIT Bhilai offers the very innovative fractal system of academics that allows an instructor/student to offer/choose a shorter course (running for one-third or even one-sixth of a full semester), the content of which may be a fraction of a full semester course.

For more details about the very unique IIT Bhilai academic structure, please visit:


Computer Science and Engineering

The 4-year BTech program offered in the discipline of CSE addresses all kinds of theoretical and practical aspects of computing. They include, among others, design, analysis and various applications of algorithms, data structures, theory of automata, formal languages and computation. The engineering aspects of computing include various topics in systems such as computer architectures, programming languages, compilers design, operating systems, databases, computer networks and software engineering. The program includes a number of advanced elective courses in each of the above topics, as well as in areas such as machine learning, computer vision, big-data analytics, information security, wireless networks and mobile computing. The program also has a provision to credit courses from science, humanities and other engineering disciplines.

Rules For Change Branch:

BTech students are eligible for a change of discipline after completion of the first semester.

Discipline change guideline are as follows:

·         Discipline change takes place at the end of the first semester

·         The discipline change option is given to the applicants purely based on the semester grade point average at the end of the first semester

·         In case there is a tie, the grade distribution will be used to break the tie.

·         Discipline change takes place on a condition that the enrolled capacity of any discipline shall not reduce more than 20% and the total number of students of any discipline shall not exceed 110% of the allotted capacity.

Once the discipline change is made, no further change is possible.
