DA-IICT launched the unique four-year undergraduate program leading to the degree of B.Tech. (Honours in ICT with minor in CS) from the 2013-14 academic session. DA-IICT is the first institute in the country to design and offer a teaching program in the area of Computational Science at the undergraduate level.
The ICT embodies the convergence of Computer and Communication systems and has obtained wide acceptance as a distinct discipline. It is also expected that ICT graduates would enjoy a special niche only if they have certain performance capabilities not found in conventional CSE and/or ECE graduates. Logically this convergence takes place at the systems level, but at the same time, it is necessary to accept a certain level of granularity as one goes down to the level of circuits, devices, and materials. In other words, given the four-year span of a B.Tech. The program, there has to be a trade-off between the breadth demanded by comprehension at the systems level and the depth desired by scientific understanding of the fundamentals.
Computational science involves the use of mathematical models, numerical methods, quantitative analysis techniques, advanced computing capabilities and IT knowledge to understand and solve complex science, engineering and social problems aimed in improving products, processes, and workflows. DA-IICT started this program in the area of Computational Science to impart the necessary knowledge and insight to the students to build computational models to understand, analyze and address fundamental problems in the areas of societal importance.
The minor in CS program is focused on two main lines - theoretical learning and practical implementation. The students must take core/group-elective courses in the areas of Mathematics, Physics, Numerical and Computational Methods, Modeling and Simulation, High-Performance Computing, Parallel Programming, Data Analysis, and Visualization. The electives are further designed to sharpen this skill-set by providing domain knowledge in interdisciplinary areas ranging from engineering to biological applications.
The B.Tech.(Honours in ICT with minor in CS) programs are designed to operate on a semester-based credit system. Each course is associated with a fixed number of credits. Credits (C) are assigned on an L-T-P-C system, i.e., a number of hours required for Lectures (L), Tutorials (T) and Practicals (P) in a week. For both the degrees, the students are required to complete the prescribed curriculum in a minimum of four years.
The minor in CS provides an opportunity to pursue a focused set of courses that emphasize all main aspects of Computational Science. The program has significant research and development components as part of the course structure. The minor requires extra core credits (compulsory core courses and electives from the list given below) in addition to what an ICT undergraduate takes.
Admission to the B. Tech. programs will be based on the All India Rank of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main. The short-listed candidates will be offered admission (confirmed/waitlisted) in the order of their merit (based on the All India Ranking of JEE-Main.
The candidate seeking admission into the B.Tech program must have passed in the final examination of 10+2 (Class XII) or its equivalent referred to as the qualifying examination (mentioned below). The candidate must have passed in the final examination of 10+2 (Class XII) or its equivalent with Mathematics, Physics and any one of Chemistry/Biotechnology/Computer Science/Biology.
Candidates appearing in the qualifying examination in 2018 are also eligible to apply for consideration of provisional admission. All candidates who are offered provisional admission will be required to produce the proof of having passed the qualifying examination (10+2 examination or equivalent) to the Institute latest by 30 October, failing which the provisional admission will stand canceled. If a candidate is found ineligible at a later date, even after admission to DA-IICT, her/his admission will be canceled.
Only those candidates whose date of birth falls on or after 01 October 1993 are eligible. Date of birth as recorded in the 10th or 12th standard certificate, as issued by the Board/University only, will be taken as authentic. Candidates must produce this certificate in original as proof of their age at the time of counseling.

Accreditation is a process by which the quality of a programme is examined and certified normally by an external body of academics. It validates and certifies that academic processes practised within an institute are robust and relevant.
For any programme to be recognized for further studies or a profession it needs to be approved either by a University or/and by a professional council as the case may be.
