IIITH PGEE 2013 Exam Pattern:

The entrance examination consists of two papers. There is no negative marking.

Paper I  : General aptitude (Compulsory)
Duration: 1 1/2 hours
Objective Type: Emphasis will be on basic aptitude, logical reasoning, basic questions on computers and mathematics.
Note:Candidates have to score a minimum cut-off score ito be eligible for evaluation of the chosen subject paper (Paper II).

Paper II : Subject paper (Paper II). Candidates have to choose the relevant subject papers as per the graduation degree specialization

1. Mathematics:
Duration: 1 1/2 hours
Syllabus: Elementary  Graph  Theory, Set Theory, Probability and Statistics, Combinatorics, Matrices, Complex  Variables, Differential Equations, Numerical Methods, Basic  number  theory.

2. Computer Science:
Duration : 1 1/2 hours
Syllabus: Fundamental Programming Concepts, Control Flow, Functions, Recursion, Basic Data Structures (arrays, lists, stacks, and queues), Basic algorithms (sorting and searching), Boolean Algebra, Digital Building Blocks (AND/OR/NAND/XOR Gates), Karnaugh's Maps, Computer Organisation, Number Systems. Capability to write programs in C or C++ is expected.

3. Electronics and Communications Engineering:
Duration: 1 1/2 hours
Note: The combined score of this subject paper and the general aptitude test will be the basis for selection for interview for the  following streams
(i) VLSI & Embedded Systems
(ii) Communication Systems and Signal Processing

  • This examination paper is divided into two parts: Part A (Electronics) and Part B (Signal Processing and Communication).
  • The individual score in PART A will have more weightage for selection into the stream `VLSI & Embedded Systems'.
  • Similarly, the individual score in PART B will have more weightage for selection into the stream `Communication Systems and Signal Processing'. )

Part A : Electronics:
Syllabus: Network Theory, Analog Devices (Diodes, BJTs), OPAMPs and Basic Analog Circuits. Boolean Algebra, Digital Building Blocks (Gates, Flip-Flops) Digital Circit Design. Signals, Systems, Filters, Transformations, Modulation, VLSI fundamentals.

Part B: Signal Processing and Communications:
Syllabus: Fundamentals of probability and random processes: random variables, discrete and continuous random variables, cumulative distribution function, probability mass funtion and probability density function, conditional probability, Bay's theorem, independent and uncorrelated random variables, random processes, discrete time and continuous time random processes, auto-correlation and cross-correlation functions, power spectrum.
Fundamentals of Linear Algebra: vectors, matrices, determinants, basis, Eigen vector and Eigen value, canonical forms, characteristic and minimal polynomial.
Communication systems: Amplitude and frequency modulation, single side-band modulation, PAM, PCM, PSK, FSK.
Fundamentals of information theory: measure of information, mutual information, entropy, capacity, lossless source coding schemes like Huffman code, run-length code etc., delta modulation.
Signal Processing: Fourier series, Fourier transform, discrete time Fourier series and fourier transform, discrete Fourier transform, FFT, z-transform, Properties of the above transforms, LTI systems, stability of LTI systems, IIR and FIR filters.
Communication networks: Layering hierarchies; circuit versus packet switching; virtual circuits; network mechanisms: multiplexing (TDM, Go back N), flow control, congestion control; ATM, TCP/IP.

4. Structural Engineering
Duration: 1 1/2 hours
Syllabus: Bending moments and shear forces in beams, stress and strain relations, principal stresses, Mohrs circle, simple bending theory, flexural and shear stresses, torsion, analysis of trusses and frames, analysis of indeterminate structures by force/displacement methods, matrix methods of structural analysis, working and limit state design concepts, design of compression members, beam, slab, footing, staircases, basic concepts of prestressed concrete, riveted and welded joints, steel beam column connections, plate girders and design of base plate.

Questions from engineering mathematics like determinants, matrices, limit, continuity and differentiability, mean value theorems, integral calculus, partial derivatives, maxima and minima, ordinary differential equations and applications, initial and boundary value problems, Laplace and Fourier transforms, test for convergence, sequences and series will also figure in the question paper inaddition to the syllabus mentioned above.  

5. PGEE for CCNSB Subject Paper:
Computational Natural Sciences and Bioinformatics
The combined scores of the scores in the subject paper and the general aptitude test will form the basis of selection for interview iew for the streams
(i) Bioinformatics
(ii) Computational Natural Sciences

  • There will be three sections in this exam: Physics, Chemistry, Biology & Bioinformatics, (physics and chemistry only for Post-B.Sc. programmes)
  • Depending on their background, students are expected to attempt any one Section as a major and another section as a minor part. There will be multiple choice questions

Physics Section: Mechanics and General Properties of Matter, Electricity and Magnetism, Kinetic theory and Thermodynamics, Modern Physics, Solid State Physics, Devices and Electronics.

Chemistry Section:

  • Organic Chemistry :Basic Concepts in Organic Chemistry and Stereochemistry,Aromaticity and Huckel's rule,Heterocyclic Chemistry, Qualitative Organic Analysis.

  • Inorganic Chemistry: Periodic Table, Chemical Bonding and Shapes of Compounds, Main Group Elements (s and p blocks), Transition Metals (d block), Analytical Chemistry.

Biology & Bioinformatics Section

  • Biology: General Biology, Biochemistry and Physiology, Molecular Biology, Cell Biology.

  • Bioinformatics: Sequence Analysis, Sequence Alignments, Phylogeny, Gene Prediction, Structural Biology.

Computational Linguistics:
(Computational Linguistics exam will be conducted in late June at IIIT Hyderabad. This test is required to be taken by students of linguistics, languages background. They do not have to take the entrance test on aptitude and programming etc.)

  • Morphology

  • Word formation based on functions

  • Word-Classes and part of speech tagging

  • Lexicography, Syntax, Syntactic structure, Dependency structure, Grammar formalisms

  • Semantics, Lexical semantics, Sentential semantics

Students should be able to analyse natural language texts in terms of morphology and basic grammatical structures.

what is the diferrence between Mtech and MS by Research courses of Computer Science in IIITH

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 11th Jan, 2020


see the main different between ms and mtech is ms course is research oriented, have lots of thesis topics, you need to submit atleast one research papaer at the end of the course, most of the students goes for phd after ms, whether mtech is course is mostly have different emerging technologies work and process, industrial evolution, current trend of technologies etc.


what is the formula for cut of frequency

suresh vinay 9th Jan, 2020




where,k is kinetic energy,

h is plancks constant,

u is frequency,

uo is cut off frequency


is Artificial intelligence available in iiit Hyderabad

sarthak goel 15th Dec, 2019


As per the below mentioned official link to the website of the courses offered by IIIT Hyderabad,


there is not a dedicated course, for specially Artificial Intelligence, instead they offer B.Tech as well as M.Tech courses in Computer Science, seeing the curriculum, you can see that


there is no such course in undergraduate stream, but if you see the semester wise curriculum for M.Tech CSE, then you have the option to choose AI, as a stream.


Hope this helps
