4-year B. Tech and 5-year Integrated M. Sc.
The 4-year B. Tech. and 5-year Integrated M. Sc. undergraduate programmes have two components. The first component is the core programme common to all students and is carefully planned to give the students a strong base of general education in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering Sciences, Technical Arts, and Humanities and Social Sciences. The second component of the undergraduate programme includes professional courses and a project in the chosen branch of specialisation.
The course structure in the core curriculum provides for large lecture classes with tutorial discussion hours and laboratory sessions in smaller goups. The professional programme, while providing the flexibility of having laboratory courses often independent of the lecture classes, culminates in a project involving the application of modern analysis and design techniques.
Two-year M. Sc.
A limited number of candidates are also admitted to the two-year M. Sc. programme in the disciplines of Chemistry, Mathematics, Statistics and Physics. These are open to those who have earned the B. Sc. degree in the relevant discipline.
B. Tech. : Aerospace Engineering, Biological Sciences and Bio-Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials and Metallurgical Engineering
B. Tech. - M. Tech. : (Dual Degreee): Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering
The goals of the Postgraduate Programmes at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur comprise the following: “The development of the highest quality of scientific and engineering manpower to cater to the needs of Industry, R & D Organisations and Educational Institutions who shall have a broad grasp of the fundamental principles of sciences and the scientific method, deep understanding of their area of specialisation, innovative ability to solve new problems, and the capacity to learn continually and interact with multidisciplinary groups. Above all, they should have a capacity for free and objective enquiry, courage and integrity, awareness and sensitivity to the needs and aspirations of society.” With this end in view, the programmes are designed to include submission of a thesis through which a student may develop his concepts and intellectual skills.
These programmes with their courses and specialised research aim to prepare students for their professions by enabling a perspective and breadth of knowledge related to the principal divisions of their respective fields of specialisation. A postgraduate student will typically be enrolled for three or four courses each semester, until he/she attains the necessary levels of competence before embarking on his research and thesis.
