CTM is a 11-month long programme, offered in four modules. Each module spans for about three months, comprising technical and management courses. At the end of each module, proctored exams will be conducted. On successful completion of the programme, the candidate receives a ‘Certificate in Technology and Management.
The programme comprises online courses from Technology and Management disciplines.
Under this domain the student has the option to choose one of the following two specialization streams:
The Data Science stream will equip you to venture into data-driven computing and will cover all the essential topics such as Mathematical Foundations, Data Visualization and Machine Learning.
The Machine Learning stream will prepare you to start a career in AI. This will cover the fundamental concepts as well as exciting directions such as Deep Learning and Reinforcement Learning.
A balanced mix of asynchronous sessions comprising videos and synchronous interactive sessions, along with projects and case discussions for a hands-on experience
A unique learning element of this programme is the opportunity to interact with the course instructors in person at IITM and IIMB campuses at least once during the run of each module.
In addition, in each course, a Teaching Assistant (a subject matter expert) will guide you through the online learning journey through email and online discussion forums.
On successful completion of the programme, students earn a Certificate in Technology and Management as the first step in this stackable credential system.
Those who would like to explore more of this combination can opt for a 3-tier stackable credential system designed to give you a strong foundation, advanced knowledge and real-world experience.
Admission is based on satisfying the minimum requirements for both the domains. There will a telephonic interview, followed by an aptitude test. The decision of the CTM Team and the programme directors will be final. There may be pre-requisites for a few courses, which the candidate should be willing to master, if not already familiar

The Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) at IITM coordinates the continuing education programmes of the Institute. The Education Technology Cell, established by MHRD for the purpose of creating educational videos and other software of broadcast quality in Science and Technology using the expertise of the faculty and the facilities at IIT, is associated with this Centre. Further, the Centre facilitates continuing education modules for industry and IIT Madras series in Science and Engineering.
The Robert Bosch Centre for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (RBC-DSAI) was founded in August 2017, in IIT Madras with a vision to expand and further the research, education and outreach activities in the areas of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. RBC-DSAI comprises faculty from several departments across the Institute, who carry out research in various areas of data science and artificial intelligence. The long-term vision of RBC-DSAI is to become a world leader in data science research, where long-standing fundamental research problems, cutting across disciplines, are targeted and solved.
IIMBx is founded on the philosophy that management education has strong potential to transform our educational systems and that high quality education must be available to all unconstrained by limitations imposed by location, finances or prior educational background. Led by the faculty at IIM Bangalore, IIMBx offers online courses and programmes covering core and advanced business and management subjects.
