Academic Structure:
The institute offers a large number of Undergraduate and Postgraduate programs in Engineering, Science, Design, Liberal Arts and Entrepreneurship & Management. This includes BTech, BDes, MSc, MTech, MA, MDes and PhD. Currently, IIT Hyderabad has 17 departments.

IIT Hyderabad follows a semester system. An Academic Year (July-April) consists of 2 semesters, each 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 the last week of April /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 BTech 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 lecture 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. In the final year the interested and eligible 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’ ‘Conversion to MTech’ and ‘Conversion to PhD’

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 BTech, IITH also offers a Minor in Artificial Intelligence, Entrepreneurship, Design and many other disciplines 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 a prescribed set of courses and projects in their own academic curriculum. 

Conversion to Dual Degree program (BTech to MTech/BTech to PhD):

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

The variety of extracurricular life in IITH gives everyone an opportunity to find worthwhile and meaningful activities to pursue throughout their stay on campus. NSS at IIT Hyderabad is aimed at providing each student with a significant context in which he/she can reach a deeper understanding of social reality in India today. IIT Hyderabad's Sports is one of the more brilliant attractions of this campus life. Our fiery enthusiasm and zeal are embodied in our motto, "The name on the front of a jersey is more important than the name on the back". Sports facilities at IITH include a football ground, cricket ground, a hockey ground, a well-equipped swimming pool, floodlit synthetic courts for basketball, badminton, tennis, and multiple courts for volleyball. Facilities for indoor games like table tennis, caroms, and chess are also available. The recreational room homes a perfect environment to vent out stress by providing indoor team games foosball, pool, snooker and has a television available for personal use too. The calendar of IITH is packed with events like Fresher’s Interaction Sports Program during the first month of every year, Inter-Departmental Sports Meet where the students play for their department’s glory, regular friendly matches with other college teams, and most importantly the Inter-IIT Sports Meet. IITH made its mark in Inter-IIT sports history by becoming the first of the newer IITs to win a medal at the Inter-IIT Sports Meet, winning a Bronze Medal in Football. All-in-all, we believe that physical and mental health are an equally crucial part of one's success and IITH thrives to inculcate this culture in every individual.
