The importance of cutting-edge research, serving the advancement of knowledge and the ever-changing basic needs of society, can hardly be overemphasized in the context of any academic institution for higher studies. At the Indian Institute of Information Technology Raichur (IIITR), utmost attention is given to the research component, both from theoretical and practical points of view. Although newly founded in 2019 under the mentorship of the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IITH), as an Institute of National Importance (INI), IIITR is deeply committed to excellence in Research and Development, under the able guidance of the Director Prof. Harish Kumar Sardana of IIITR.

The faculty members at IIITR have accomplished researchers in their individual areas of expertise, having long-term research experiences resulting in publications in reputed international journals. Moreover, they have currently engaged actively in various research projects, arising out of several distinguished global collaborative efforts lying at the very forefront of Research and Development. This is also evident from the faculty profiles available at the official institute website of IIITR, containing a detailed chronological list of publications and of the sponsored projects carried out by them.

IIITR started its journey as an institute of academic excellence from the campus of IITH. It is currently conducting all its activities from the transit campus at the Government Engineering College, Raichur, although the permanent campus for IIITR is already under construction. The institute currently has three streams, (i) Computer Science and Engineering, (ii) Computer and Communication Engineering, and (iii) Mathematics and Computing. The faculty members from these three streams are committed to the cause of meaningful research in their individual domains. Furthermore, at IIITR it is believed that interactions between faculty members having different areas of expertise form the fundamental basis of a significant research environment, leading to innovations and advancement of the current state of the art.

IIITR started offering the Doctoral and Post-doctoral programs in CSE, CCE, and MC from the academic year 2023-24. With active engagement and participation from the faculty members, IIITR aims to firmly establish itself in the research map of the country in near future, as an institute of excellence and international repute, in the field of higher education and research.
