IIT Madras offers option to upgrade to Interdisciplinary Dual Degree course
From the academic session 2017-18, students pursuing B. Tech and Dual Degree (B.Tech + M.Tech) at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Madras will have an option to upgrade to an Interdisciplinary Dual Degree (ID DD) programme. The five year ID DD course will offer students a B.Tech in parent discipline and M.Tech. in an interdisciplinary area. The upgrade option is available to those UG and DD students who score CGPA of more than eight at the beginning of the 5th semester. This is in addition to the B.Tech + M.Tech (Dual Degree programme), the institute already offers in several conventional disciplines.
Prof. Bhaskar Ramamurthi, Director of IIT Madras said, “As a part of its endeavour to offer more flexibility in education, IIT Madras will be allowing its UG and DD students to gain Dual Degree in four of the highly sought-after domains of the present times: (i) Advanced Materials & Nano Technology, (ii) Biomedical Engineering, (iii) Computational Engineering, and (iv) Data Science.”
Gradually, it may expand to include more areas such as energy systems, battery technology, Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 and management. UG or DD students from any branch of engineering can upgrade to the Interdisciplinary Dual Degree programme, provided they meet certain academic criteria.
Elaborating on the initiative, Prof. V. Jagadeesh Kumar, Dean of Academic Courses, IIT Madras said, “It is imperative that students of IIT Madras are given opportunities to learn and work in current areas that would define the future of engineering and technology in the world”. IIT Madras regularly updates its academic courses and offers good amount of flexibility.
This initiative will not only enable students to study and earn an added qualification in the area of their choice, but will also be useful to those who may have missed out on getting their preferred discipline at the time of admission. For instance, a student pursuing B.Tech in Metallurgy may probably be able to pursue B.Tech - M.Tech (ID DD) in Data Sciences by opting for this scheme.
