Academic Structure:

The institute offers a large number of Undergraduate and Postgraduate programs in Engineering, Science, Design and Liberal Arts. This includes B.Tech, M.Sc., M.Tech,  M.Phil., M.Des., and Ph.D.   Currently, IIT Hyderabad has 14 departments.

IIT Hyderabad follows a semester system. An Academic Year (July-April) consists of 2 semesters, each of approximately 16 weeks duration. The first semester begins in the last week of July / first week of August and ends by the last week of November. The second semester starts in the first week of January and ends by first week of May. A student is required to register the relevant courses listed in the curriculum for that semester.   The Institute may offer summer courses for backlog students.

IIT Hyderabad offers the B.Tech. undergraduate program for students admitted through JEE (Advanced). IITH has implemented a very novel academic program, referred to as, Fractal Academics – the key idea is to atomize courses, provide breadth and depth, emphasize courses in liberal arts as well as creative arts, emphasize project work, and create an interactive learning ambience. A typical 3 lecture course has 3 credits leading to 42 lecture hours in a semester. Fractional credits can be 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0 having 7, 14, 21, 28, 35 and 42 lectures hours, respectively.

The fractal academic program is a novel holistic approach to undergraduate teaching. It has multiple goals among which fostering undergraduate research, interdisciplinary learning and encouraging creativity are the primary ones. In the first year of study, students are introduced right away to a wide gamut of courses not only from the engineering spectrum but also from science and liberal arts. This is aimed at giving the students a flavor of various engineering disciplines in addition to whetting their appetite for the science, creative and liberal arts. In the second year, an in-depth study of the core engineering courses is undertaken. This is designed to firm up the students' foundations in fundamental areas of their chosen branch. In the third year of study, students are encouraged to pick an area of their choice (within their branch) and take relevant elective courses. By the end of the third year, the students are primed to take on challenging research projects. The final year of study is project heavy where students are encouraged to work on research problems. Two common threads run through all four years of study - independent projects and creative/liberal arts courses. Students are required to pursue independent projects to "learn by doing" as well as to explore engineering problems that pique their interests. Through the study of liberal and creative arts, it is hoped that students appreciate non-technical disciplines which in turn should help them become better engineers.

In addition, IIT Hyderabad offers ‘double major’, ‘minor’, ‘honors’ ‘Dual Degree (B.Tech+M.Tech),’ and ‘Conversion to Ph.D.’

Double Major*: If a student does say 24 extra credits in a given department he/she can get a double major. Essentially, this is equivalent to double minor in the same department.

A “Minor” is awarded to a student after completion of twelve credits in addition to B.Tech. IITH also offers a Minor in Artificial Intelligence, Artificial Intelligence & Humanities, Entrepreneurship and Design to all students. The student’s performance in a course is continuously, evaluated throughout the semesters and culminates in the award of a Grade on a 10-point scale.

Similarly, “Honors” is awarded to a student after completion of twelve credits with prescribed set of courses and projects in their own academic curriculum            

Dual Degree (B.Tech+ M.Tech) program:

The primary motivation for a dual degree program is to create a win-win proposition for both students and faculty.

B.Tech/B.Tech (Honours) to M.Tech:  

The duration of the dual degree program is 5 years from the time the student enters IIT Hyderabad. Both degrees (B.Tech and M.Tech) will be awarded at the end of the fifth year subject to satisfying necessary credit requirements.  All students who convert will be given MHRD stipend after the eighth semester. Option to convert will be given at the end of the sixth semester (after grades are announced) till the beginning of the eighth semester (by coursework add/drop deadline).


B.Tech/B.Tech (Honours) to PhD:

Option to convert will be given only at the end of the sixth semester (after grades are announced). Students must appear for a technical interview before a panel of at least three faculty members nominated by the head of the department.
