B. Tech (ICT) - COURSE STRUCTURE

The course structure of the curriculum could broadly be classified into 3 categories. The first category, referred to as Foundation, is a set of compulsory courses required to be taken by every student in the program. The next one is formed by a set of courses, referred to as the Group Electives, which forms the technical core of the programs. Every student in the program is required to take a minimum of 2 courses from this category. Finally, there is a set of courses consisting of technical electives, open electives, and science electives.

A unique feature of the programs is the mandatory rural internship, which is expected to give the student a feel of his/her social milieu and is typically carried out with a NGO. After the completion of foundation courses, the student is required to take a 6-week industrial/research internship. The student has a choice of taking an industrial internship or a research internship depending on his/her career goals. Finally, the student is required to take B.Tech Project, during which he/she is required to demonstrate his/her ability to learn current areas of research and/or industrial interest, his ability to utilize the topics he/ she has learnt during his/her stint in the program and his/her creative and design abilities.
