The Robert Bosch Centre will undertake foundational research in many areas of AI and Data Science, namely, deep learning, reinforcement learning, network analytics, interpretable machine learning. The areas of activity includes research projects, knowledge management and dissemination, developing prototypes, outreach projects, and setting up collaborative facilities and laboratories among others. The Centre’s mandate requires interaction with industry and other universities, including international student and faculty exchanges. The objective is to advance scientific innovation for societal benefit.


Several technologies currently require large data sets to improve their accuracy and to adapt these technologies for the Indian context. There are basic issues in the way we collect and share data; these need to be solved in a collective and open-sourced manner. To address this issue, the Centre is setting out on an ambitious task of creating a portal of curated, India specific data sets that are easy to access and interpret through a set of open tools and interfaces.


As part of Bosch’s research and innovation portfolio in India, the Centre in IIT-M will become part of a network to support ‘Digital India’; it will advance the country in the fields of innovation and research as the world moves towards more connected hardware and software products. This research network also includes the Robert Bosch Centre for Cyber Physical Systems at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc.) in Bangalore.

Aman Raj Student Expert 23rd Jan, 2020

Hello Tarun

Getting a seat for Mtech is totally dependent on the branch or stream you are applying. Without knowing your Branch how can i predict the rank.

But still in General if you are in (Civil, Mech or EE) then you will have to get under 400-500(Rank) to get a IITM seat.

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 23rd Jan, 2020


see gate and ceed exam is not for you as you are in 11th , gate or ceed  exam can be attempted  by candidates who are already graduate or in final year of graduation in relevant discipline.

as you want to take admission in iits, you need to apply for uceed exam which is the undergraduate design entrance of iits, also you need to apply for jee main exam, which is the common entrance test of engineering, basis on jee main score candidates may appear in jee advance exam, which is the gate way entrance exam of admission in iits for btech courses.

hope it would help.


Hi Everyone I really want a fair suggestion whether I should apply for IIT Kharagpur and IIT Madras MBA programs? I have secured 95.31 in Cat, in dialemma because of low marks in 10th(68.4) , while in B.Tech and 12th has more than 80 and has 2 yrs of work ex. Thanks in Advance!

Sampriti Student Expert 15th Jan, 2020
You should go for VGSOM IIT Kharagpur. Though both are equally good colleges and you'll have good academic programs over there but VGSOM has a great reputation among corporates and has a stronger alumni base at higher levels as compared to IIT Madras. These  colleges condider only the overall CAT percentile which should be minimum 90.Your previous records won't be a huge concern if you perform well in the subsequent selection rounds. With your scores you can also check out colleges like
  • MDI Gurgaon
  • IMI Delhi
  • IMT Ghaziabad
  • XIMB Bhubaneshwar
  • Sailesh j Mehta School of Management
  • Department of Financial Studies, University of Delhi and others.

Good Luck

B.Tech course expense at IIT Madras is INR 1 lakh for every annum.There are a number of scholarship options available for students with the special scholarship granted by the government to students from SC/ST and OBC categories. Fee is same for any category but for SC/ST and OBC there will be certain scholarships which will be decided by government and you may also get other scholarships.

Hope this helps.
