This run in minds of many  students  who are aspiring for IIT ,what are the different research areas in different IIT ?  To know more about it you actually have to browse through their  sites and have to check their Faculty profiles , their Areas of Interests and students who are working with them in different Research projects   ( both Govt/Private  Sponsored  and  Consultancy ) .

There are  also  Google site   ,  DBLP   and   MicrosoftSearch   to know more about research of different IIT Faculty members and papers they published in different conferences .

First of all you have to know how you get IIT through Gate . The answer  depends on your score  and your Area of  Interest . But mostly it would depend on your score .This is what I feel are the options available to you based on your rank in GATE(applicable for GENERAL category, Computer Science only):  

  1. Rank 1 to 100:  All IIT, chance of IITB mtech CS and IISc ME direct admission.
  2. Rank 100 to 600: within this range you will  get a call from all IIT for written tests/interviews. Your selection will depend on your performance in interviews and tests (30%)  but there is still a lot of weightage on your GATE Score(70%) .

  • Now when you choose different IIT there are few factors that you need to consider while making this decision. The following are the factors, which i think should be taken into consideration:
  • Areas of research in the institute
  • MS vs MTech.  Also look into long term plans like work vs phd.
  • Proximity to your home state.
  • Food and hostel facilities.
  • Peer group.
  • Placements .
