About the B.Tech Curriculum at IIT Mandi

The B.Tech curriculum is designed keeping in mind the need to produce well-rounded graduates many of whom will go on to join industry in technical or managerial roles, or to join the administrative services as technocrats, while a few may aspire to research careers. Some may even go on to become entrepreneurs. Thus, at IIT Mandi, the students are exposed to a broad range of knowledge and skills that will enable them to perform well in tomorrow’s increasingly complex and inter-dependent world. A B.Tech. student at IIT Mandi will study foundation courses in basic sciences, engineering and humanities and social sciences. In the chosen discipline, besides studying the core courses, the students will also study elective courses which will enable them to develop significant knowledge in a specialized area with exposure to research trends and developments. The category of free/open electives outside the chosen discipline will enable the student to obtain significant inter-disciplinary knowledge. The student can consult a ‘Faculty Advisor’ with regard to the planning of curriculum and other academic issues.

In addition, the curriculum allows specialization in a ‘Minor’ area, by taking a set of 3-4 courses in another discipline. For example, a Mechanical Engineering student can qualify for a minor in Computer Science or German language. 

The B. Tech. degree program allows a student to go on exchange visits of up to two semesters to other universities, both in India and abroad, for course work and projects. A number of B. Tech. students have already availed these opportunities to study at international institutions. IIT Mandi’s undergraduate students have visited IIT Madras and several European Union (EU) institutions under academic exchange program including the TU9 Universities in Germany, Blekinge Institute of Technology in Sweden, Aalto University in Finland and IT University in Denmark. 

An important aspect of the curriculum is the integration of innovation and design into the learning process. This is achieved through a ‘Design Practicum’ model of learning, which is built into the curriculum. Thus, in the first year of the B.Tech program, the student carries out a ‘reverse engineering’ project, where student teams dismantle a common gadget/equipment, understand how it works and then put it back together in working order!

At the second year level, students learn product design and development skills. Interdisciplinary teams of six students, randomly selected from different branches, propose product ideas and then build working prototypes. Many of these product ideas are derived from the needs of the society. The products successfully built and demonstrated in the previous years include a wall climbing robot, fire-fighting robot, gesture-controlled 3-D hologram, automated ration vending machine etc.

In the third year of their B.Tech. programme, IIT Mandi students have the option of working on an ‘Interactive Socio-Technical Project’ (ISTP). The ISTP exposes students to the complex interactions of technology and society, and familiarizes them with the necessity of taking stakeholders’ needs and opinions into account while devising and innovating technology. As part of ISTP, students work in groups under the mentorship of a faculty member to identify and study problems related to society. They propose solutions for the same via prototypes, recommendations and proposals, and write a report which is published in the ISTP booklet and available on the Institute website for policymakers to read. Every year, a group of over 20 students from the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), USA, visits IIT Mandi and joins IIT Mandi students in completing ISTP projects. 

Finally, during the fourth year, the students have the option of doing a Major Technical Project (MTP) either individually or in a group. MTP is the capstone of the 4-year B. Tech programme.  The project is expected to have a major technical contribution in the student's discipline and is intended to demonstrate a high degree of technical knowledge, innovativeness and maturity.  The outcome of a B. Tech project may be an innovative product or technology that addresses a problem of society, or it may be more theoretical or exploratory resulting in an advancement in the frontiers of knowledge.

Overall, the curriculum at IIT Mandi is designed to encourage and enable the student to become well-qualified and well-rounded engineers in all respects.

 

Credit system

IIT Mandi follows the credit system with continuous internal evaluation throughout the semester. Grades for each course is awarded on a 10 point scale. The overall performance is measured by the weighted grade point averages. A student has to attain a fixed minimum of Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) and earned credits to pass the B.Tech degree program.

Rules For Change Branch:

During the first year, students get an introduction to all the branches of engineering. As a result, they may decide that they want to change their branch. Normally, at the end of the 1st year, any student who is in good academic standing, having done the full complement of courses and having no backlog to clear, can apply for a branch change. The change is allowed provided that the strength of a class does not fall below the sanctioned strength by more than 50% and does not exceed the sanctioned strength by more than 50%. In case either of these limits is reached, CGPA will be used as the criterion for allowing the change of branch. There are provisions, in exceptional cases, for change of branch up to the end of the 2nd year. For more details, please visit the following website:
