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, a B.Tech. student is exposed to a broad range of knowledge and skills that builds on a  sturdy foundation of Engineering, basic sciences, humanities and social sciences. In the chosen BTech discipline, besides studying the core courses, the student 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. A ‘Faculty Advisor’ guides the student throughout the entire duration of the program with regard to the planning of curriculum and other academic issues.

 Realizing the current need of interdisciplinary skill development towards successful careers, IIT Mandi has introduced a Double Major program from 2021, by which a student of one discipline is allowed to obtain a second ‘Major’ by spending an extra one or two semesters to study approximately 12 courses of another  discipline. For example, a student of Civil Engineering or Engineering Physics would be able to obtain a second major in Computer Science & Engineering. This would enable the student to sit for campus placements for CS related companies as well!

 The curriculum also 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 Applied Physics, German language, Intelligent Systems among others. A huge number of students pursue a minor in Management in preparation for admission to top MBA programs after their BTech.

 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 signature courses of IIT Mandi’s curriculum that are extremely popular among the students. These courses include: ‘Reverse engineering’ , where student teams dismantle a common gadget/equipment, understand how it works and try to improve upon it;  ‘Design Practicum’ where student teams build novel engineering products over a semester; ‘Interactive Socio-Technical Practicum’ (ISTP) which 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 formulating technical solutions. Interestingly, 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. The course thus has an inter-disciplinary and international collaboration component. Finally, during the fourth year, the students have the option of doing a Major Technical Project (MTP) that is expected 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.

Semester Long Internship in BTech Program

Internships play a crucial role in preparing students for future careers in the real world. IIT Mandi encourages students to take the opportunity to undertake a semester long internship after a few years of coursework. This semester internship will be optional for the students and can be undertaken after obtaining due permissions from the institute. The internship can be done only in recognized and reputed industries/companies, R&D institutions or academic institutions in India and abroad. The minimum duration for this internship should be at least 14-16 weeks.

Pass/Fail grade towards the degree requirement

IIT Mandi students are provided an opportunity to explore new areas of interest by allowing them to register for courses in the ‘Pass/Fail’ mode. Although a Pass/Fail (P/F) course will count towards graduation requirements, they do not count towards the final CGPA. Such courses can be independent study courses under the mentorship of a faculty expert, research based academic or industrial projects and courses offered by online platforms supported through Government of India initiatives like SWAYAM/ NPTEL etc. At this time BTech students are allowed to register for a maximum of 9 credits (usually 3 courses).


Rules For Change Branch:

 In the case that some students may decide that they want to change their branch, IIT Mandi allows a high degree of flexibility in enabling the student to do so. Normally, at the end of the first year, any student who is in good academic standing, having done the full complement of courses and having no backlog courses to clear, can apply for a branch change. Also the student should not have been found guilty of any severe academic or disciplinary misconduct.

 Branch change applications will be considered strictly in order of merit as established by the CGPA of first-year science and engineering core courses and only to the extent of the applicant’s choices and in the order of the preferences expressed in the application. However, in granting the change of branch of a student, the strength of the branch for the given year shall not exceed the sanctioned strength by more than 25% and shall not fall below the existing strength by more than 20%. These liberal rules ensure that every student from any branch has a chance to change the branch depending on the student’s performance in the first year.
