Salient features of the curriculum


Project-based Core Courses
Starting from the third semester, core courses are structured into six modules. The sixth module focuses on recent developments and industrial applications related to the course which will be assessed as assignments/quizzes/course projects and is exempted from the End Semester Examination.
Practical Integrated Core Courses
A five-credit core course is offered each semester from the second to the sixth, integrating theoretical concepts with practical applications to provide students with a comprehensive understanding through concurrent learning experiences. This structured approach ensures that theoretical knowledge is complemented by hands-on application, fostering deeper insights and continuous skill development throughout the course sequence.
Workshop Integrated Basic Engineering Courses
These courses blend theory and practical components to introduce foundational engineering sciences. Each course includes 2 modules from two related engineering sections such as Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering/ Electrical Engineering and Electronics Engineering/ Mechanical Engineering and Instrumentation Engineering and concludes with hands-on experience.
Choice based Elective Courses
Students are granted flexibility in selecting elective courses from all six available slots offered in the curriculum. This allows them to tailor their education to their interests and career goals by choosing courses that align with their academic pursuits and personal development objectives.
Practical Elective Course
Uniquely, the curriculum includes a practical-only elective course that can be taken in conjunction with a program elective course. This practical-oriented elective emphasizes hands-on learning experiences, providing students with valuable practical skills and application-based knowledge relevant to their chosen program of study.
Rajagiri Elective
In the seventh semester, students have the option to enroll in a non-credit elective course in languages such as German, French, or Japanese, aimed at enhancing cultural and linguistic proficiency. Alternatively, they can opt for courses in Entrepreneurial Skill Development or Design Thinking, focusing on practical skills that are highly relevant in today's professional landscape. These elective choices enable students to diversify their skill sets and prepare for diverse career opportunities.
Open Elective
In the seventh semester, the curriculum includes an open elective aimed at fostering interdisciplinary learning. This course encourages students to explore subjects beyond their core discipline, promoting a broader understanding and integration of diverse perspectives and knowledge areas.
Credited Mandatory Internship
Between the fourth and seventh semesters, students are required to undertake a two-week internship with industry, NGOs, government organizations, or micro/small/medium enterprises. This internship provides students with practical exposure and prepare them for the dynamics of the industry environment.
Long Term Internship for Students
After completing six semesters, students have the opportunity to engage in internships lasting between 4 to 6 months with reputable industries or R&D organizations, contingent upon meeting specified conditions and requirements. This practical experience allows students to apply their academic knowledge in real-world settings and gain valuable insights into their chosen field of study.
Fast Track Credit Accomplishment
Starting from their fifth semester, students have the opportunity to finish up to three MOOC courses out of four available in the eighth semester. This allows them to earn 9 credits ahead of schedule, enabling them to participate in internships or R&D activities during their final year.
MOOC courses
The curriculum includes a mandatory MOOC course with a minimum duration of 8 weeks, aimed at imparting essential knowledge and skills. Students can also opt for additional MOOC courses lasting at least 12 weeks, providing them with greater flexibility to deepen their understanding in specific areas of interest.

These features collectively aim to equip engineering graduates with a well-rounded education, technical competence, and professional skills necessary to address complex engineering challenges and contribute effectively to society and industry.
