Department of Computer Science & Engineering

Conceived in 1973 with the acquisition of an IBM System/370 (one of the most powerful computers in India at that time), the Department of Computer Science and Engineering now offers several attractive industry-sponsored Fellowships for outstanding PhD scholars, as well as support for participation in top-ranking international conferences. According to a 2014 Brown University study, IIT Madras was the fifth largest contributor of faculty members to computer science programs in U.S universities, including MIT, Stanford and Yale.
