M. Tech. Defence Technology

Overview - MTech in Defence Technology

Directorate of Futuristic Technology Management (DFTM), Defence 必威体育betway888 & Development Organization (DRDO), Ministry of Defence (MOD), New Delhi, Government of India (GOI), in collaboration with All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) have started a regular Master of Technology (M.Tech) Program in Defence Technology from Academic Year 2021 - 22.

The main objective of this advanced PG program is to envisage interest among young aspiring engineering graduates to pursue their professional career in research, technology and product development related to defence and security. DRDO, Indian industries and armed forces are engaged and immensely contributing in the development of defence technologies and production / maintenance of defence systems. The Government of India’s flagship initiative, ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ is a step in developing indigenous technology for India’s defence needs and has attracted the attention of several industries to establish many defence related industries and establishment in the recent years. This PG program aims to fulfil the increased requirement of technical expertise and trained manpower that aligns with the new demand for defence industries in India and expected to be the next big employment generation avenue in the days to come.

MIT 必威体育betway888 has received the approval from AICTE to start the M.Tech program in Defence Technology from Academic Year 2021 - 22 with an intake capacity of 30.? This M.Tech program offers two specializations: Aerospace Technology and Communication Systems & Sensors

Semester 1 will have common curriculum to both specializations. It includes, 3 core and 2 elective courses and 2 labs. Semester 2 will be offered with courses in accordance with the specialization desired by the candidate. In addition to this, a bouquet of electives will also be provided to the students to specialize in the important domains necessary to develop advanced knowledge and skill set.

The program will be supported by the state-of-art specialized DRDO defence laboratory in India. The students opting for this M.Tech program will be undergoing their laboratory courses in some of the high-tech DRDO labs. Few courses are ably supported by the scientists from India’s prestigious defence labs, and experts from Industry who will be engaged in teaching the curriculum. Semester 3 & 4 includes the project work and seminar which can be conducted under the guidance of experts from Industry / Defence establishment.


PEO1:?To develop Post Graduates who have the necessary theoretical & experimental knowledge, skill and aptitude in defence technologies and systems and can get recruited in the various defence laboratories, defence public sector & private industries, ordnance factories and other similar sectors of the economy at national and international level.

PEO2:?To contrive skilled manpower in the field of defence technologies.

PEO3:?To enhance students’ interaction with the senior, experienced manpower engaged in defence?labs and defence industries and have real time knowledge / experience in the technology development, technology deployment and defence systems.

PEO4:?To acquaint students for the needs of technologies related to defence & security of nation and to create zeal among students to pursue research and development for defence technologies.


POs essentially indicate what the students can do from subject-wise knowledge acquired by them during the program. The POs define the professional profile of a graduate of PG Engineering Program
