Academic Structure:

IIT Kanpur imparts training to students so that they become competent and motivated engineers, scientists and social scientists, and awards Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral degrees in various branches of technology, sciences, social sciences and humanities. The Institute celebrates freedom of thought, cultivates vision, nurtures entrepreneurship and encourages growth, inculcating human values and concern for the environment and society at the same time. 

The IITK curriculum offers students wide exposure in core areas of the sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities, along with a solid grounding in their specific discipline.  The curriculum also allows students significant amount of flexibility and choice, enabling them to explore varied areas of interest through open electives and interdisciplinary minors.  For more focused interdisciplinary specialisation, the Institute offers double majors wherein a student may graduate with a BTech/BS in two separate disciplines through a one-year extension of the academic programme.  The one-year extension may also be used to combine a Bachelors with a Master’s degree (in same or different disciplines) through the dual degree programmes.  The variety of choices on offer to students is enabled by a completely credit-based system wherein graduation requirements are based solely on the successful completion of a required number of credits distributed over several categories. 

The Institute follows the semester system with two semesters of eighteen-week duration, including a one-week recess in each semester. In addition, an eight-week summer term is also offered to provide students with additional opportunities to complete the required credits for graduation. 

A diagnostic test to ascertain general proficiency in English is conducted for ALL undergraduate students admitted to IIT Kanpur. Based on their performance in this test, some students are advised to take a basic course in English Language.

Rules For Change Branch:

A student may be allowed to change the branch/programme subject to certain constraints in each branch/programme. All cases are decided in decreasing order of Cumulative Performance Index (CPI) of the eligible applicants. A unique aspect of IIT Kanpur rules is that branch change is allowed not just after second semester but also after 3rd and 4th semesters. 

In addition to the above, although all the students are initially admitted to a programme in Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Technology, the interested students can apply for conversion to a dual-degree programme. The second degree may be M.Tech./M.S./M.B.A./M.Des. Furthermore, an interested student, who is doing well in his/her programme, can decide to opt for a second major. A second major typically requires 9-10 additional courses and may require an extra year for completion.
Faculty:

At IITK teachers engage with the class. It is not a one-way communication. Each student in the class is important to the faculty. The faculty is very approachable. No fear or awe is expected from the students. The classroom atmosphere while being focused on learning is student friendly. The education at IITK encourages critical thinking. That is why IITK encourages curiosity based learning. Often teachers will ask questions aimed at making the student think. Such introspection helps the student make connections and envision the bigger picture. Teaching at IITK inspires students to push their personal boundaries. Courses are taught in depth and with background to help students grasp concepts firmly. There is often optional content that challenges and motivates students. This takes them to the frontiers of research in the area. 

The faculty enjoy this freedom and use it to impart in-depth knowledge to the students. An example of innovative teaching is quasi open exams where the emphasis is neither on how fast a student can recall nor on how well he/she can reproduce the lecture notes in the exam but on how deep his/her understanding of the subject is.

 

In its undergraduate education, IITK has removed the artificial split between the two science streams of Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics (PCM) and Physics, Chemistry & Biology (PCB). This has been done by introducing life sciences courses for engineering students. This is in tune with the needs of society since greater interaction between the two streams is required to deliver the next generation of inventions and discoveries.
Facilities:

In keeping with its reputation for academic excellence, the Institute has state-of-the-art facilities with one of the best and openly accessible computing facilities and modern laboratories that include a unique flight laboratory with several powered aircrafts, gliders and a one kilometre runway.
