IIT Madras Launches International Interdisciplinary Master’s Program

It is the only educational institution in India to offer Interdisciplinary Master’s degrees, providing students with an unprecedented level of flexibility to learn in current areas that would define the future of global engineering and technology.

Indian Institute of Technology Madras has launched an International Interdisciplinary Master’s Program (I2MP) in nine unique areas that include next-generation technologies such as Quantum Science. 

The International Interdisciplinary Master’s degrees are available in nine interdisciplinary areas:  

  • Energy systems, 
  • Robotics, 
  • Quantum Science and Technology, 
  • Computational Engineering, 
  • Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, 
  • Data Science, 
  • Cyber-Physical Systems, 
  • Complex Systems and Dynamics, and 
  • Biomedical Engineering 

The International Interdisciplinary Master’s Program provides a platform for international students with exceptional performance in their undergraduate programs to participate in these activities. In addition to courses in Data Science, and Biomedical Engineering, among others, the international students will take up courses in Indian culture as well. A dedicated research skills course will prepare them for their master’s thesis work. 

International students interested in traditional departmental programs may also apply to the Master’s programs in any of the 16 departments at IIT Madras. 

IIT Madras is constantly striving to expand the horizons of traditional engineering education and research, and is home to the best and brightest. The institute has a rich culture of deep research, technology development and entrepreneurship, which have been developed over the decades without compromise on the teaching/learning of foundational science and engineering. 

The Interdisciplinary Master’s programs - offered to international students via the I2MP (International Interdisciplinary Master’s Program), and to Indian students through the hugely popular Interdisciplinary Dual Degree (IDDD) - represent the culmination of decades of excellence at IIT Madras. 

The Last date to apply is 31st March 2022. Interested students can apply here.
