The proposed anointment as Digital University is eventually a double delight for Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management–Kerala (IIITM-K) that has introduced learning and research in a number of revolutionary information technology areas in the country.

Established in 2000 by the Kerala Government, IIITM-K is a premier institution of excellence in science, technology and management located at Technopark. The honour is being conferred on IIITM-K at a time when it is all set to shift to its new campus in Technocity in Thiruvananthapuram.

The ‘green campus’ will have world-class facilities, including an auditorium, administrative and academic blocks, students hostel, library and laboratory wing, faculty and non-faculty residences and community centre. It will have a learner-centric environment, facilitated by state-of-the-art infrastructure in cutting-edge areas.

IIITM-K, affiliated to Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT), currently offers MSc Programmes in Cyber Security, Machine Learning, Ecological Informatics, Data Analytics and Geospatial Analytics. It also has two MPhil programmes in Computer Science and Ecological Informatics, besides doctoral programmes in Computer Science.

It admits students for PhD programmes in IT-related topics in the areas of Distributed Computing, Software Engineering and advanced computing areas like High Performance Computing, Grid and Cloud Computing etc.
The sole hardware incubator, Maker Village, Kochi, is functioning under IIITM-K, and the varsity status will be a boon for Maker Village.

India’s first Blockchain academy, Kerala Blockchain Academy, was also set up by the State Government under IIITM-K.
