The department has one of the best undergraduate programs in the country. The course curriculum for the undergraduate program gives the flexibility to the students to prepare for advanced specializations. The department commits to offer a set of electives so that students can plan their academic program in advance. The course structure provides a right mix of compulsory and elective courses.
The BTech program is divided into two distinct parts. A student has to go through a common program called Core Curriculum. Most of the core curriculum is completed in the first four semesters. The last four semesters has a large number of professional courses, that initiates the student to topics in Computer Science and Engineering.
The Core Curriculum consists of a package of compulsory courses in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Engineering Sciences and Technical Arts. It also includes several electives in Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS), Engineering Sciences, and Basic Sciences. The curriculum also includes open electives, where student can take the course from any department in the Institute. Through these electives, students can tailor-made their programs to suit their interests and needs.
The Professional Curriculum consists of courses and Project Work. There are some compulsory courses, but there is a significant number of professional electives as well. Three professional courses are done during the first two years itself. The details of the program are given below.
