Integrated First Degree

banner
Geared for All-Round Growth

Introduction

Offered at the first tier, these degrees have nomenclature like B.E. (Hons.), B.Pharm. (Hons.), M.M.S (Master of Management Studies), M.Sc. (Hons.), M.Sc. (Tech.), and M.A. (Hons.). These are level wise equivalent degrees. They are considered to be integrated degrees for two reasons: (i)the degree program includes several cross disciplinary common coursessuch as basic math and science and, (ii) no intermediate degree, like, B.Sc., B.Sc. (Hons.), B.A., B.A. (Hons), etc. is awarded. These degrees are modular in structure and academic requirements are spelt out in terms of the number of courses studied rather than the number of years.

All our programmes are designed in a way to facilitate completion within eight semesters. Our flexible academic policy gives students the option to complete their degree both at a faster pace (finishing it earlier than 8 semesters) as well as at a slower pace to finish it in later than 8 semesters.

  • B.E.(Hons.)

    These programmes in engineering are mathematics and hard science based and incorporate many up-to-date techniques of analysis and synthesis.

  • B.Pharm.(Hons.)

    Our B.Pharm.(Hons.) programme has been structured to match and exceed the requirements of the Pharmacy Council of India. The programme offers students additional courses which give the shape and flavour of engineering as well as fundamental sciences giving an added dimension to the student’s academics.

     

    Salient Features

  • M.Sc.(Hons.)

    These are integrated degree programmes without any intermediate B.Sc. degree. While these programmes ensure the required science component in any comparable postgraduate science degrees of other universities, they also incorporate many courses which have been notionally considered to be the domain of engineers. The integrated nature of the programmes and their analytical and engineering science contents give them a added professional character and equips students with the skills and problem solving abilities to participate usefully in industrial jobs. While a capable student with a 10+2 background may be able to complete these programmes in four years, students with a 10+2+3 background with a B.Sc. degree, admitted on advanced standing basis will require two to three years to finish the programme. The vast majority of students who are admitted for these degrees also aspire and work for a second degree from B.E. (Hons.), M.M.S., B.Pharm. degrees under the dual degree scheme.

  • M.Sc.(Tech.)

    These programmes are multi-disciplinary, technological in character and are designed to meet the requirements of newly emerging professional activities. While these programmes are also science and technology based, their requirements of mathematics, science, applied science etc. will be different from B.E. (Hons.) and M.Sc. (Hons.). The areas which are currently incorporated in these degree programmes are Engineering Technology, Information Systems, Finance and General Studies.

    The Engineering Technology programme gives students an exposure across all engineering disciplines and emphasizes knowledge of the operation of various technological units.

    The programme on Information Systems equips students with comprehensive skills on computer software and software engineering techniques, both at the conceptual and application levels.

    The Finance degree has been designed to meet the manpower needs due to the new thrust given to growth patterns in the economy. The courses planned for this programme meet the skill set requirements of financial institutions as well as financial management needs of any industry. The programme is complementary to the M.Sc.(Hons.) Economics programme and the MMS programme.

    The General Studies programme does not have any specific discipline objective. However, the course is charted out in a way that candidates take humanities courses as well as certain general science and technology courses. Students sometimes also seek to acquire specific skills to meet varied career objectives by making planned use of electives and project oriented courses.
