Comment on 25/12/2018:  As I have left JIIT in October 2018 to join JK Lakshmipat University, Jaipur (http://www.jklu.edu.in), I can’t anymore guarantee the correctness  of this post about JIIT programs. You can look forward to many innovative educational approaches at JKLU, Jaipur. 

Please check the post about JKLU BTech programs – https://goelsan.wordpress.com/2019/04/17/why-should-btech-admission-seekers-choose-jk-lakshmipat-university-jaipur/.


Post was last updated on:  October 10, 2015.



For more than 25 years, BTech in Computer Science remains a favourite educational program among undergraduate students.  The popularity of the course is so high that often admission seekers don’t even check the strengths and weaknesses of the institute and the department.

In India, it is a misplaced myth that any government institute of higher education is better than their counterpart private institute.   On the contrary, many government institutes suffer from very slow decision making,  usual government lethargy and mismanagement.  The faculty strength at a large number of government institutes is pathetic.  Their recruitment processes are very slow.  Many of the so called reputed government institutes even resort to hiring ad-hoc faculty, who are  paid very low, to teach some BTech classes.  At few of these  institutes, often MTech students take many BTech lecture classes assigned to their MTech Thesis supervisors.   It is also not uncommon to hear that in some courses often classes are not held regularly at some of these places.   Because of slow decision making and lethargy, often   curriculum   is not updated for even more than a decade.

Second myth is that an admission in a so called highly branded college automatically ensures a great future. Often University’s name recognition is wrongly considered as the sole criteria for choosing the college.  In fact just name recognition should not be equated by quality of education.  Students need to work hard and develop their technical and other professional competencies through their education. If a student thinks that s/he has already worked hard enough and now it is his’/her opportunity to enjoy, s/he is mistaken. In these years, the students need to regularly work for around 50 hours per week including their class time.  Hence, in these formative years, the department can really play a very significant role in properly and meaningfully engaging the students in and outside the class.  There are many real academic parameters that must be looked in by the admission seekers and their parents (See: https://goelsan.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/admission-time-what-can-indian-students-and-parents-look-for-beyond-placement/).  

The other myth is about the choice of the degree –  CS is good but IT is not so good.  For the last many years, it has been observed that many of those BTech admission seekers whose first preference is CSE do not keep IT as their second preference. Instead they keep  ECE etc. as their second choice.  There no rationality behind this decision.  The reality is that the curriculum of CSE and IT differs only marginally at many places and  IT students do not have any disadvantage wrt to placement or higher studies.  Another related myth is that 5-year dual degree BTech-MTech programs are not good choices.  With an  increasing focus on R&D in Indian IT industry, dual degree BTech-MTech students with good technical competence are  highly welcome by industry.   Hence, BTech (IT)  and 5 year dual degree BTech-MTech (CSE) are   equally good choice for those who want to pursue BTech (CSE).  

A short note about JIIT’s ranking

JIIT has been recognised for its quality and achievements by the  2015 ranking done by EDU, a niche online platform on higher education, along with RAND Corporation, USA (http://pickacollege.digit.in/best-engineering-colleges). The parameters used for ranking are: employability (50%), research productivity (25%), faculty qualifications (15%) and student fill rate (10%), As per this ranked list of over 1000 engineering colleges in India, JIIT is now ranked 33 (All India), 15 (North region), 4 (UP) and 5 (All India Private). In terms of Employability of graduates, JIIT’s all India rank (including all IITs) is 15.  JIIT is ranked above several NITs, IIITs, PEC, HBTI, several other government engineering colleges of central or state universities, and nearly all private universities except only four.

Now with some new initiatives – the new curriculum BTech (https://goelsan.wordpress.com/…/curriculum-2015-for-btech-…/), further increased focus on research and student entrepreneurship and also a few new MTech programs, I am sure that this rank will soon further go up within the next few years.  In my view, wrt to curriculum and academic rigour in various BTech/MTech programs in the area of CSE/IT, JIIT certainly is one of best 10-12 options in country.

Options offered by department of CSE & IT at JIIT

Today, if a XII pass student wants to pursue a good BTech degree in computer science or Information Technology and is ready to work hard, the department of CSE & IT at Jaypee Institute of Information Technology (JIIT), Noida, offers the following options:

1.       1.    4 year BTech (CSE) (available at sector 62 and sector 128 campuses): The first batch graduated in 2005.

3.      2.     4 year BTech  (IT) (available at sector 62 campus):  The first batch graduated in 2005.  The curriculum marginally differs from BTech (CSE) curriculum. The curriculum of BTech (IT) places a higher emphasis on contemporary applications and technologies.    The average quality of placements of BTech (IT) students in terms of technical challenge as well as remuneration is comparable to that of BTech (CSE) students.

2.      3.    5 year Integrated MTech (CSE) (earlier titled Dual Degree:  BTech – MTech (CSE), available at sector 62 campus): The first batch graduated in 2013.  The average quality of placements of these students in terms of technical challenge as well as remuneration is superior than that of BTech students.  For some jobs in industry and for all college level teaching  positions, MTech is the minimum required qualification.  Further, with increasing focus on PhD programs, even in India, these students get an extra advantage.

      The overview of the new curriculum for these programs are  available at https://goelsan.wordpress.com/2015/05/27/curriculum-2015-for-btech-cse-and-btech-it-at-jiit/

\     Many of the most successful graduates of our department (CSE&IT) studied BTech (IT) or dual degree BTech-MTech (CSE).  Refer https://goelsan.wordpress.com/2015/05/26/b-tech-it-or-integrated-m-tech-cse-excellent-options-for-indian-students-seeking-admission-in-b-tech-cse/

         In addition to the undergraduate programs, the department also offers following postgraduate and doctoral programs:

         1.    MTech (CSE)   (offered at sector 62 campus since 2007)


         2.    MTech (IT and Entrepreneurship) (stared at sector 62 campus  in 2014)


          3.   MTech  (CSE with specialisation in Information Security)   (started  at sector 128 campus in 2014)

          4.   MTech (Data Analytics) (stared at sector 62 campus  in 2015)


          5.   MTech  (CSE with specialisation in Mobile Technology)   (started  at sector 128 campus in 2015)

          6.  PhD (CSE)

       The department of CSE&IT at Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, Noida, focuses on development and strengthening of holistic thinking, problem solving, system design, research, team work, and readiness for lifelong learning. The courses run by the department use mixed techniques of interactive lectures, guided case studies, literature surveys, and project work that require team work and critical and creative thinking. It emphasizes on undergraduate as well as graduate research activities.  Each of the above mentioned three programs gives a strong foundation in theory, system and application aspects of computing. The degree in IT places a slightly higher emphasis on contemporary applications than CSE, which puts its main focus on theoretical and systems aspects.

Being backed by a large and reputed group, the institute offers more than sufficient infrastructure to the department for running its academic programs. The overall academic policy framework is guided and monitored by VC, Director, and Deans of JIIT who have been faculty and administrators at IIT and NIT.  Here are some academic strengths of the department that help in creating a great educational experience for motivated students:

1.       1.  Large, Well diversified,  and Strong Faculty Resource:  In terms of number of faculty members, the department of CSE & IT at JIIT is possibly one of the largest CSE departments in a unitary University in India.

i.             JIIT’s overall full time regular faculty strength is more than 250.    More than 20 of these are Professors and  25+ are Associate  Professors.  The remaining are Assistant Professors.  Unlike most new Indian institutes, JIIT has a very low attrition rate of faculty. Around 70 faculty members are working at JIIT for more than 10 years and another 50 are working for more than 5 years.

ii.        In addition, around 40-50 PhD and MTech students get teaching assistantship and assist in laboratory instruction and other such tasks.

iii.       This makes an overall faculty to student ratio of approx. 1:15.

iv.        Unlike some IIITs, JIIT has full fledged departments of CSE&IT, ECE, Biotechnology, Maths, Physics, Biotechnology, HSS, and also a Business school,   At the moment, faculty strength of these departments varies between 20 – 81 regular full time faculty members.

v.        Overall nearly 150 faculty members are PhDs in their respective disciplines. In some departments, i.e., Physics, Maths, and Biotech, all faculty members are PhDs.

vi.       Every semester, students give structured feedback for all teachers in every course.  In the feedback taken in 2013, May,  for 80% course-teacher pairs out of a total of 483 pairs, students provided an overall average  rating of 7+ on the scale of 10.  For nearly 50%, the rating was 8+, and for 14% course-teacher pairs, this was above 9.  

vii.        There are  91 full time regular faculty members working in the department of CSE & IT.   Out of these, 56  faculty members are working at sector 62 campus and 35 are at sector 128 campus.   So much faculty strength ensures that each student can easily find at least some faculty member(s) whose research interest and teaching style will suit student’s career goals, subject interests, and learning style.

viii.          28 faculty members are PhDs  in different areas of computer science, 2 more have submitted their theses,  and another 2-3 are likely to submit their PhD theses during 2015-16.  PhD work of another 40+ faculty members are at various stages of progress. As of now, in India, outside some IITs and few IIITs, it is really difficult to find such a faculty strength and profile in the CS department of a unitary university offering BTech program.  As per a 2013 ACM India report  about PhD production in India authored by Prof. Pankaj Jalote, Director IIIT Delhi,  only 11 other Indian institutes offering  BTech/integrated MTech (CSE)  programs  have  15 or more CS faculty members with PhD.  These are –   IIT  Bombay, IIT Kanpur, IIT Delhi, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras, IIT Guwatahi, IIIT Hyderabad, IIIT Bangalore,  IIIT Allahabad, IIIT Delhi, and Jadavpur University.  

ix.             Wrt the masters qualification of the faculty, nearly 95% faculty members hold an MTech/MS degree in CSE.  As mentioned above, many of them are also PhDs.  The remaining 5% are MCA+PhD.

x.          Around 75% faculty members in the department have studied and/or taught at some premier institutes like IITs, ENS at Lyon France, BITS Pilani, JNU, IIITs, NITs, NSIT, DTU, DU, BIT, etc.

xi.              Teaching activity within the department at the two campuses is led by two CS professors both having IIT Delhi as well as BITS Pilani background.  In addition, Prof. Padam Kumar (retd. from IIT Roorkee) Dean (RID) also teaches CS courses.

2.   2.   Diversified Specialisations within CSE/IT: A large strength of faculty ensures that the department is not skewed towards very few specialisations within CSE/IT.  At least few faculty members are interested and actively working in almost each major sub-areas of CSE/IT.  Therefore students have a large number of optional areas for elective courses and projects. The BTech as well MTech curriculum require the students to take 6 technical electives. In addition to the compulsory courses, every year, the department offers 25-30 BTech and 10-15 MTech elective courses in a large variety of subareas of CSE/IT.  Every year few new electives are added and offered.   Here is the list of core and elective courses taught at our department in the last few years:

M   3. High  Emphasis on Learning by Doing:  In almost all BTech courses taught by the department, there is an attached laboratory component. In addition to minor and major projects in the 3rd and 4th year, the students are also required to work on a mini-project within each course as well.  Prospective students can really look forward to designing, developing, and building at least one working hardware/software systems every semester starting from the first semester itself.  Most of our students actually get much more hands-on-experience as compared to their counterparts at most other Indian institutes.   The success of  this approach can be assessed by looking at the recognition of our students by some prestigious forums such as follows:

                      I.          In the last 5 years, more than 15 students have qualified for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program.  In this program students are selected for a summer project under Google nominated mentors.  Till 2013, Google gave a scholarship of US$ 5,000/- to each selected student which has now been increased to US$ 5,500/-.  year wise list of these students as follows:  2009 (Ankur Saxena), 2011 (Vaidik Kapoor),  2012 (Ankur Anand, Ashish Dubey, Atri Sharma, Akash Sanghi, Udit Jaggi), 2013 (Hardik Juneja, Pragun Bhutani, Praveen Singh, Akshit Agarwal, Gaurav Sehravat), 2014 (Hardik Juneja, Divyam Rastogi, Rohit Dua).

                     ii.          For the last many years, our students have been doing reasonably well at ACM ICPC  (Inter College Programming Contest).

                    iii.          Our students have been consistently performing well at various national level Robotics competitions.

4.       4. Strong  Alumni Network:   Since 2005, nearly 3000  students have completed their graduation from the department.

i.                     Hundreds of these students have pursued  their higher studies (or have been admitted) at world’s top universities, e.g., Stanford (Siddartha Batra, Deepak Rao), Oxford (Vivek Kothari), Carnegie and Mellon University (Aditya Sharma, Abhinav Shrivastava,…), Cornell (Abhishek Gupta, Vijayanand Chokkapu, Amrita Jain…), Georgia Tech, Columbia (Nikhil Wason, Priyank Singh, Mayank Talwar, Neha Srivastava,…), Purdue,   University of Southern California (Rishabh Jain, Prateek Tandon, Aniket Athawale, Heena Rastogi, Kunal Chaddha, Abhinav Singhal, Poojit Sharma, …), University of South Carolina, University of California, UNC at Chapel Hill (Aniket Bera, Rohan Chhabra), North Carolina State University (Saransh Gupta), University of Florida (Antariksh De, , London School of Economics (Ishan Vaid), Rutgers (Varun Bansal), University of Utah (Anuja Sharma, Praful Agrawal), University of Illinois at Chicago (Amal Tiwari,…), University of Washington (Aditya vashishtha, Ankur Agrawal,…), University of Buffalo (Puneet Singh, Sameer Bagga)  NUS (Varun Mittal,…),  CNRS-LAAS (Amit Pandey), Duke University, University of Massachusetts, University of Pennsylvania (Yuvraj Negi,…), Rochester Instt. of Technology (Kshitisj Agarwal,…),  etc.   Many students have also pursued their higher studies in India at IIMs (Kanak Sood,…), IITs, IISc, NID (Amal Tiwari,…), etc.   Few of our graduates have already completed PhD at some of the highly  reputed international universities.  In 2013, the PhD work at CNRS-LAAS by Amit Pandey, a 2005  BTech graduate from JIIT, was selected as one of the top three in Europe in the field of Robotics.

ii.                   Some of our alumni have set up their own technology start up companies. Some of these are – Umesh Sachdeva & Ravi Saraogi (Uniphore, Chennai), Chandan Verma (Dinzylabs, NCR), Anil Sharma (Mobulous, Noida), Amit Trivedi (Virtualinfocom, Jaipur),  Nikhil Wason (Cardback, NCR), Akshay Agarwal & Saurabh Aswani (Scrapbotics, NCR), Deepak Kumar (YatraFinder, NCR), Puneet Nanda (Elixir Medical Consultancy Pvt Ltd, NCR ), Yogi Raj (24 Idea Street, NCR), Apoorv Parijat (SerpRex, NCR), Badal Vishal(Dravin Solutions, NCR & Mumbai), Vipul Khare (Radical Logix, Noida), etc.   A US based venture started by our alumni Siddharta Batra and Deepak Rao has been acquired by Twitter.

iii.                  Hundreds of students are working with top rated technology groups at companies like Google, Amazon, faceBook, Twitter, Intel, Microsoft, Dreamworks, Xerox, Adobe, Siemens, Ericsson,  SAP, Bloomberg,  Oracle,  Flipkart, naukri.com, Cadence, Hewlett Packard,   Landis+Gyr,  Verizon wireless,  Spirent Communications, Aricent, etc.   Many others have joined rising Indian stars like  Wingify, Zomato, InMobi, Pixpa, E2E Networks, MTree, etc.

iv.                 More than 2000 students are working with leading IT consulting companies like IBM, Accenture, Infosys, TCS, HCL, Wipro, etc.

v.                   The alumni network is very active in USA and Singapore.

5.       5. Research Activity:   The department has also been progressively increasing its engagement in various areas of research. In the current phase, the department views its engagement in research as the main facilitator for continuously enhancing the quality of faculty and the quality of our undergraduate as well as postgraduate educational programs.

i.                     The department is actively engaged in research activity in many areas of CSE/IT – Algorithms, Computer Architecture, Distributed Systems, Wireless Networks,  Information Security,  Intelligent Systems, Web Technology, Visual & Multimedia Computing, Software Engineering, Information Retrieval, Information Systems, Interaction and UX Design, Collaborative Systems, Health Informatics, Learning Technology, and Computing Education.

ii.                   The faculty and students of the department have published more than 500 research papers and book chapters.   Many of these are indexed in SCOPUS, ISI, DBLP, and/or ERIC.

iii.                  So far 8 PhDs have been completed in the department. Some of this work has been rated as excellent by international reviewers.  More than 50 scholars are pursuing their PhD at the department.  This also includes the faculty members of some other engineering colleges.

iv.                 To enrich the research activity in the department, the department is regularly organizing an annual international conference on contemporary computing, IC3 (https://goelsan.wordpress.com/about-ic3/  and  http://www.jiit.ac.in/jiit/ic3/), in collaboration with the University of Florida since 2008.
