Usually by end of first year. I'll tell with respect to IISc. CSA where there are 3 broad areas.

1. Theoretical - where work is on solving unsolved problems, finding better algorithms etc. and most people stay in academia. Related subjects include algorithms, TOC, graph theory etc.

2. System - usually considered tough as system level coding is involved. But jobs are always there and competition is less. Subjects include Databases, CO & A, Compilers, Programming Languages etc.

3. Intelligence- more into mathematics and is currently hot. Needed by Software giants and they pay the most- Amazon, Walmart, IBM IRL etc. Linear Algebra, Probability theory are the basics.

Usually one can decide his interest (for M.Tech.) based on how the first year goes where most subjects are compulsory.

It should be mostly the same. I just used the terminology from IISc. Subjects, scopes etc should be the same in IITs. IISc. gives more flexibility in course selection.
