About the Institute:

IIT Bhilai, located in the state of Chhattisgarh, is one of the youngest IITs established by the Ministry of Education (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. In the year 2020, another discipline in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence is added. The seat matrix mentioned below may be referred for details of the proposed intake for the academic session 2021-22.

Apart from BTech program, the institute offers Masters program in various science and engineering disciplines. Doctoral program is offered in all the disciplines of Engineering, Liberal arts, and Science disciplines available in the institute.

At present the institute has on its roster more than 60 extremely competent faculty members with vast experience of working in the top-ranking labs and universities in India and abroad. Detailed profile of the faculty members is available, department wise, in the institute website

Academic Structure:

IIIT Bhilai offers 4-year BTech programs in the four engineering disciplines: Computer Science and Engineering, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, 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.
