Currently, the Institute has twenty-six Academic Units: this includes fourteen departments, one school, six centres and five interdisciplinary programs. These Units constitute the academic fabric of the Institute. The teaching programs are characterized by their flexibility and informality. The strong faculty-student interaction on the residential campus provides an opportunity to students to work on seminars, publication and projects sponsored by the industry and national agencies.

IIT Bombay follows a semester system. An academic year (July-May) 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 May.  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. 

IIT Bombay offers the following  undergraduate  programs through JEE (Advanced) 2019

•    B.Tech.
•    Dual Degree (B.Tech. + M.Tech.)
•    B.S.

The B.Tech. and B.S. programs consist of eight semesters spread over four years. The Dual Degree B. Tech.-M.Tech. program consists of 10 semesters spread over five years. A B.Tech. degree of the parent academic unit and an M.Tech. degree of a specialization within the parent (Dual Degree) and other academic units (Interdisciplinary Dual Degree) is given at the end of the fifth year. A “Minor” is an additional credential a student may earn for doing prescribed additional courses in a discipline other than his/her major discipline of B.Tech. Degree.  Similarly, “Honours” is awarded to students completing a prescribed set of courses and/or project in their own academic units. This structure of academic programs provides flexibility to suit the varied interests of students and helps build multifarious competencies that employers demand besides satisfying the widely varying attitudes, abilities and aspirations of students.

TThe basic responsibilities of the faculty are teaching, research, technology development and industrial interaction. IIT Bombay is a leading center of scientific and technical teaching. It helps many educational Institutes for technical education in up gradation of syllabi of courses, laboratories and manpower development. The educational methodology developed at IIT Bombay is transferred on continuous basis to engineering colleges through organized interactions in the form of CEP courses, QIP programmes and implementation of the TEQIP scheme of MHRD.

The faculty members are engaged in technology development programmes for industries by consultancy projects and CEP courses. IIT Bombay emphasizes both pure and applied research since they often feed into each other.  

Education and research are closely dependent on efficient and imaginative management. Participation in the management of the Institute through participation in academic programmes, administrative committees and outreach programmes for industry and educational institutes are some of the major responsibilities of the faculty members of IITB.

Selection of faculty is through a statutorily constituted selection committee which includes external members, Head, Dean and Director. All candidates deliver seminars and they are interviewed by the selection committee for appointment.

In addition to academic excellence, faculty members at IITB are expected to promote a respect for moral values, duties of citizenship and basic human understanding required for leadership. The strength of the faculty lie in their intellectual and academic distinction attained. The best 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.

Student Life at Institute:

The 550 acres of lush green campus, situated right in the heart of the financial capital of India, IIT-Bombay is considered to be the Mecca of extra-curricular activities. Apart from being the best technical school in the country and one of the top few globally, IITB creates experiences that students don’t forget. Students are encouraged and supported to submit research papers and participate in national and international conferences.

 A major attraction of IITB is its distinguished faculty. The faculty at IITB is one of the finest among the Indian vocational Institutes. Most members of the faculty are achievers in their own right as well as excellent teachers and mentors. Most of the professors here are research scholars themselves and are deeply involved in their own subjects of interest. It is this attitude of our professors that really makes them special and engaging for our students.

Life at IIT-Bombay is an amalgamation of fun and studies. While the classes and assignments manage to keep students busy during the morning and late at nights respectively, the rest of the day allows them to pursue their extracurricular & co-curricular interests. Some of students find peace in playing cricket and football in the hostel grounds, while others head to the Student Activity Centre to play Badminton or go for a swim. The few who are not into sports are either busy with IIT-B club activities or catching up with some sleep.

IIT-Bombay hosts Mood Indigo (Asia’s largest College Cultural festival) and Techfest (Asia’s largest Technical and Science festival) which shows its diversified and glorious culture.

In IIT-Bombay almost all students reside in hostel which adds new dimensions to the vibrant campus life. Birthday celebrations and inter and intra hostel events adds fun to the campus life. To sum up studying at IITB can truly be a life changing experience.
