Indian Institute of Technology  Kanpur Kanpur Courses :

The Under Graduate, Post Graduate & Ph.D. Programs offered by IIT University are :

Under – Graduate Program

4 year B.Tech and 5 year Integrated M.Sc.

The 4 year B.Tech. and 5 year Integrated M.Sc. undergraduate programs have two components. The first component is the core Programs 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 Programs 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 groups. The professional Programs  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.
