Brand New Programmes by IIT Hyderabad
The first batch of All Course M. Tech. students in the forthcoming convocation will be graduated at IIT Hyderabad. A student can choose to take only courses and graduate in three semesters or he/she may choose to do a full thesis for 14 months, which is similar to the regular 2 years M. Tech Program.
In a standard MTech, program students undertake a research project in the second year of their M.Tech. program. It was found that some of M.Tech students prefer broad coursework since they have a clear aspiration to join the industry. This program helps in catering to the needs of these students.
In Biomedical, Chemical and Material Science Engineering in August 2018, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad is launching three All Course M.Tech. programmes. The deadline for filing online applications is July 21, 2018. While the primary goal of the all course M.Tech the program is to provide a strong coursework to meet the industrial requirements, it also offers a flexible structure to cater to the students with research bent of mind. A student can choose to take only courses and graduate in three semesters or he/she may choose to do a full thesis for 14 months, which is similar to the regular 2Yr M. Tech Program.
Overview of the Programme
When it started on a limited basis in three specializations – Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, IIT Hyderabad introduced the concept of All Course M.Tech. Program in 2017.
After seeing the strong response from students last year, Institute has now decided to add three more specializations this year. The All Course M.Tech. GATE qualification will not be mandatory and Program students will not be entitled to any Fellowship. On successful completion of the program, the student will receive an M.Tech degree.
“With latest developments and practices, the Indian industries need highly skilled workforce equipped and this we believe can be achieved through an exhaustive set of courses. IIT Hyderabad is going to expand the all course M.Tech. program to Biomedical, Chemical, and Material Science Engineering, as well in addition to the existing specializations in Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, from August 2018,” Prof. U. B Desai, Director, IIT Hyderabad, said while speaking about the importance of All Course M.Tech. Program.
Prof Desai further explained, “The All Course Program will not be a shortcut to an IIT degree. The All Course program students, besides taking the normal course load will have to take extra courses in place of the research work done in the second year of the regular two-year M.Tech. Program. The course rigour will be the same and will have the depth of IIT courses and breadth for skill and practice.”
The Civil, Mechanical and Electrical departments are also accepting applications. IIT Hyderabad was accepting online applications till 21st July 2018.
