Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, the sixth member of the IIT fraternity, was established in 1994. The academic programme of IIT Guwahati commenced in 1995. At present the Institute has eleven departments and three inter-disciplinary academic centres covering all the major engineering, science and humanities disciplines, offering BTech, BDes, MA, MDes, MTech, MSc and PhD programmes. Within a short period of time, IIT Guwahati has been able to build up world class infrastructure for carrying out advanced research and has been equipped with state-of-the-art scientific and engineering instruments.Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati's campus is on a sprawling 285 hectares plot of land on the north bank of the river Brahmaputra around 20 kms. from the heart of the city. With the majestic Brahmaputra on one side, and with hills and vast open spaces on others, the campus provides an ideal setting for learning.
Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati:
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati was formed in the year 1995 and provides an outstanding research environment complemented by excellence in teaching.
The Department offers B.Tech., M.Tech., Ph.D. and Dual (M.Tech. + Ph.D.) degrees. The Department has a comprehensive curriculum on topics related to all aspects of Computer Hardware and Software with an emphasis on practical learning. The course structure is up-to-date and includes courses on nascent topics to equip our students with the latest developments in Computer Science and Engineering.
The Department has state-of-the-art infrastructure and computing equipment supported by high speed Ethernet and wireless networks. Various student organisations like ACM Chapter, ACS Chapter, CSEA, Linux and Open Solaris Community are active throughout the year.
Our faculty members aim at delivering top class education blending their rich research experience with classroom teaching. The Department has undertaken many research projects funded both by multinationals and government agencies.

Responsibilities of Information Security Research and Development Centre (ISRDC)
To carryout research – starting from basic/fundamental research leading to applied research and development of products and solutions in identified thematic areas leading to building indigenous capability of strategic importance.
To identify Graduation/Post Graduation students with potential to become faculty / core researchers and provide a platform for carrying out research work.
To mentor as well as monitor the RCs & PIs attached to them.
To guide the researcher and faculty from different colleges / institutes and professional from the industries.
To collaborate with international research community in the identified thematic areas.
To conduct post-doctoral, PhD, and MS by research and also attract research scholars from other subject streams.
To provide facilities for the industrial professionals to carry out the research for the market issues/ live problem in the industry.
To carryout research in critical areas of government sector pertaining to national security.
Organise Annual Appraisal Workshop for the RC-PI cluster attached to the thematic lab – ISRDC.
Organizing international conferences/seminar/workshops
Development of Learning Material, Virtual labs, etc. in identified areas
Build capabilities to develop indigenous products and solutions by creating a network of ISRDC, RCs, PIs with C-DAC. The mandate of Academic and Research institutions would be to carryout research at basic/fundamental/applied levels and generate new knowledge, while the C-DAC would provide the interface converting this knowledge into viable products and solutions which could be deployed successfully.
Advanced Faculty/ISEA Member
Faculty Training Program
Each ISRDC would conduct Advance Faculty Training Programs in line with their thematic research area through short duration modular courses for the benefit of RCs and PIs.
As the Information Security is constantly evolving with emergence of newer technologies and new research area, there is a need to continuously revise the syllabus. But, the syllabus revision cannot be undertaken until two batches pass out. This would lay a restriction of five years tenure for under graduate level syllabus and three years tenure for masters. However, this limitation could be overcome by ensuring that the minor/major project works undertaken by the students are of current /emerging topics.
Each ISRDC, RC could announce a Faculty Training Program calendar well in advance. These training programs could be of short duration modular courses and would be aimed at the faculty of the PIs. Each cluster could identify and nurture a pool of experts from academic institution, industries etc. Technology enhanced learning including virtual laboratory could be extensively deployed for wider spread of such Faculty Training Program.
