Academic Structure:

A learning-centric teaching learning academic paradigm has been developed at IIT Guwahati where instructors and students work together to make the learning fun and motivating. The students are encouraged in creative activities by including the component of creation a part of the course curriculum. The flexible undergraduate course curriculum is a perfect blending of basic sciences, humanities, engineering sciences and professional courses that allows students to take courses from other departments and encourages interdisciplinary activities.

IIT Guwahati offers the following under graduate (UG) courses

(i)            B.Tech. (Four-year) in Biosciences and Bioengineering

(ii)           B.Tech. (Four-year) in Chemical Engineering

(iii)         B.Tech. (Four-year) in Chemical Science & Technology

(iv)         B.Tech. (Four-year) in Civil Engineering

(v)          B.Tech. (Four-year) in Computer Science & Engineering

(vi)         B.Tech. (Four-year) in Electronics & Communication Engineering

(vii)        B.Tech. (Four-year) in Electronics & Electrical Engineering

(viii)       B.Tech. (Four-year) in Engineering Physics

(ix)         B.Tech. (Four-year) in Mathematics & Computing

(x)          B.Tech. (Four-year) in Mechanical Engineering

(xi)         B.Tech. (Four-year) in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence

(xii)        B.Des.  (Four-year) in Design (admission through UCEED)

In addition, there are post graduate courses (MTech, MDes, MS(R), MA and MSc) offered by different departments and centres in large number of specializations. PhD programmes are offered by all the academic departments and centres and some departments/centres also offer dual degree (MS(Engg.)+PhD, MTech+PhD) programmes. Current student strength at IIT Guwahati is about 7000.

The Institute follows a semester-based credit system. The BTech and BDes programmes consist of 8 semesters spread over 4 academic years. Each semester has theory courses and supporting laboratory courses. Students need to do a Bachelor’s thesis project work in the last two semesters providing them ample scope for independent work. Some courses are also offered during the summer recess for students to make up for academic deficiencies in regular semesters. Supplementary examinations are also conducted for those students who secure “F” grades due to poor academic performance in courses offered during the immediately preceding regular semester, providing them a chance to clear the failed courses.

 

Credits are allotted to various courses depending on the number of lecture/tutorial/laboratory hours per week. A student’s performance in a course is continuously evaluated throughout the semester. This culminates in the award of a letter grade for each course, which is then converted to a 10-point scale for calculating grade point averages. Performance in a semester is evaluated in terms of the weighted average of grade points secured in all the courses registered in that semester. This is referred to as the Semester Performance Index (SPI). A Cumulative Performance Index (CPI) is also calculated at the end of each semester, which represents the weighted average of the grade points secured by a student in all the semesters attended up to that point in time.

 

BTech/BDes students are also encouraged to do summer internships in reputed industries/ academic institutions/ research laboratories and work on practical and challenging problems. Last year our students did summer internships in different reputed industries and universities in 22 countries around the globe. The Institute also hosts a fairly large number of exchange students from other countries spending a semester or a year at IITG. Some BTech/BDes students can also spend a semester or two at another university through academic exchange programmes. The Institute also admits a large number of foreign students from Europe, Asia and Africa pursuing full Master’s or PhD programmes through various programmes and projects.

 

Students (depending upon their performance and availability of seats) may opt for a Minor Specialization in a discipline other than the discipline he/she is registered in. On successful completion of prescribed credits in that discipline, a student will be eligible for minor specialization mentioned in the degree certificate and in the final grade card. For example, a student with a BTech in Mechanical Engineering can earn a Minor in Computer Science & Engineering.


Rules For Change Branch:

The Institute has one of the most liberal branch change schemes among all the IITs. Students are allowed to change from one branch of study to another within the institute after the end of their second semester. This is subject to certain conditions. Complete details are available in the B.Tech ordinance of the Institute. The most important ones are -

1.   Any BTech student who has completed all the courses of the first two semesters, without failing in any course and without passing any course through supplementary examination, is eligible to apply for branch change within B.Tech programs of IIT Guwahati. There is no CPI restriction for making this application.

2.   Change of branch is permitted based on merit (i.e., CPI at the end of first two semesters) but is subject to the limitation that the strength of a branch must not fall below its existing strength by more than ten percent and must not go above its approved total strength/ intake by more than ten percent. 


Faculty:

Faculty members and students play a key role in the development of the Institute into a world-class Institute which caters to contemporary research needs of the nation through its teaching as well as research programs.  Presently, IIT Guwahati has 412 full-time faculty members and 6500 students (including international students). The research activities of the Institute are mainly those which are (a) of strategic importance to the nation, (b) catering to the needs of large/medium/small industries in the country, (c) catering to the needs of the rural sector by dissemination of technology and training of the rural people, and (d) academic research, including training students in research methodology.

Students are also involved in these projects enthusiastically. Our students are also encouraged to start-up their own company with the help of some mentor faculty under IITG - Technology Incubation Centre. IITG Research Park is one of the important ventures to initiate the R&D activities of the incubated companies.
