 About the Institute:


The campus for the Indian Institute of Technology Goa (IIT Goa) will be developed at Cotarli of Sanguem taluka and Nagvem of Quepem taluka in the southeast part of Goa. It is bounded by Curchorem town in the west and Quepem town in the South. The exact site is about 25 km from Margao and 55 km from the capital city of Panaji. The beautiful Salaulim Dam is in close proximity which supplies potable water to most of south Goa. The western ghats are located to the west of Sanguem taluka and are rich in flora and fauna. Historically, Sanguem was known as “Sangampur”. It is the headquarters of the Sanguem taluka, which is one of the five talukas that constitute the South Goa district. Sanguem and the adjoining areas were under the reign of the King of Soonda during the 16th century. After the Portuguese invasion, Sanguem along with Ponda, Canacona, and Quepem were merged with the Portuguese territory in 1791. Sanguem in Goa is a tourist spot which nurtures Goa’s history and it also nourishes the religious base existing all through goa. It is a beautiful place filled with the memories and mysteries of the past, which the travellers unravel when they visit the Usgalimal famous for its rock carvings (UNESCO Heritage Site), Fernandes House, Church of Our Lady of Compassion, Rivona Fort, Buddhist caves, among many other sites of historical importance. The new IIT Goa campus is being planned over a 320 acre picturesque patch of land which is expected to come up in a couple of years. It will be located about 25 km from Margao and 55 km from the capital city of Panaji.

However, the interim campus of IIT Goa is located at Goa Engineering College (GEC) at Farmagudi, which is about 33 km away from the proposed IIT Goa Campus site.  This temporary campus of IIT Goa at GEC is fully equipped with class rooms, laboratories, and modern hostel buildings. The construction of 640 seater new hostel and an academic block are in progress and will be completed by August 2018.

Mentored by IIT Bombay, the academic activities of IIT Goa are well tuned to expose the student to a vibrant academic culture and bring out the best in every student. The contribution of this Institute would be to educate young people to solve the real problems faced by our countrymen using the technical knowledge they are imparted during their formative years.

Academic Structure:

Academic Structure:

The Institute offers three undergraduate (B. Tech.) programs in engineering. IIT Goa follows a semester system. An academic year (July-April) consists of two semesters, each of approximately 16 weeks duration. The first semester begins in the last week of July and ends by the last week of November. The second semester starts in the first week of January and ends by the last week of April. In each of the two semesters of the first year, a student is required to register for the relevant courses listed in the curriculum for that semester.

 The Institute follows a credit system. Credits are allotted to various courses depending upon the number of lectures, tutorials and laboratory hours per week. The student’s performance in a course is continuously evaluated throughout the semester and culminates in the award of a Grade on a 10- point scale. Performance in a semester is evaluated in terms of the weighted average of grade points secured in all the courses registered in that semester, which is known as Semester Performance Index (SPI). A Cumulative Performance Index (CPI) is the weighted average of the grade points obtained in all the courses registered by the student since the time of joining the Institute.

 To students admitted through JEE (Advanced) 2018, IIT Goa offers the B.Tech. undergraduate program. The B.Tech. programs consist of eight semesters spread over four years. During the first semester all branches will have a common curriculum

Rules For Change Branch:

Students are eligible to apply for change of branch/programme after completing the first two semesters.

 1. The Eligibility Criteria for applying for a change of branch / programme are:

     (a)  completion of the prescribed course credits in the first two semesters

     (b)  no backlog at the end of the first year

     (c)  secured a CPI of:

                        - at least 8 for general and OBC category students;

                         and at least 7 for SC, ST and PD category students.

 

2. An eligible student's request for a shift from branch A to branch B will be considered currently valid if any one of the following two sets of criteria are satisfied. 

 Set 1

(a)  the CPI of the student is at least 9

(b) the strength in branch B, to which a change is being sought, does not exceed its  sanctioned strength by more than 10%. 

 

Set 2

(i) the strength in branch B, to which a change is being sought, does not exceed its sanctioned strength by more than 10%.

(ii) the strength in branch A, from which a change is being sought, does not fall below its sanctioned strength by more than 25%.

(iii) there is no student with higher CPI who is currently being denied a change of branch to B due to rule (c). 

 

Among all valid requests, the student with the highest CPI is chosen and a shift performed.

However, if a student with CPI x is moved from branch A to branch B then every student with CPI x requesting branch B will be moved to branch B, even if they violate (ii) and (iii) above.  If necessary, extra seats will be created to accommodate them.

 The above action is performed as long as there are valid requests.

Note: that even though a student has been switched to a lower priority seat earlier due to unavailability of a seat of higher priority, his request may become valid later because of availability of seats.
