The 4-year B Tech undergraduate programme consists of two parts. The first part is the core programme common to all students and is carefully planned to give the students, a strong base of general education in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering Sciences, Technical Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. The second part of the undergraduate programme consists of the professional courses and a B Tech project in the chosen branch of specialization.
The course structure in the Core curriculum consists of large lecture classes, with tutorial and laboratory sessions in smaller sections. The professional programme is more flexible, with laboratory courses, often separate from lecture classes, and culminating in a project involving the application of modern analysis and design techniques.
