The Bachelor of Technology – Master of Technology (B. Tech. -M. Tech.) in Mechanical Engineering is a five-year program comprising of ten semesters. Both the degrees and B. Tech. for those students who do not meet the academic requirements for the award of M. Tech. degree, are awarded at the end of five years or whenever the requirements have been completed thereafter. Students of the B. Tech.- M. Tech. (Dual degree) program spend their first seven semesters doing undergraduate courses together with the students of the B. Tech. program, while the last three semesters are spent doing postgraduate courses together with the students of the M .Tech. program. At the end of five years, they graduate, receiving both B. Tech. and M. Tech. degrees together. There is no option of early exit with a B. Tech. degree only. Students in this program who have good academic performance are given a scholarship in the final year, which is on par with that given to students of M. Tech. program. The B. Tech. – M. Tech. dual degree program has been designed to make it attractive for a good student to do an M. Tech., and thus contribute to the research efforts of the department. The student benefits by getting an M. Tech. degree with just one year of extra effort, thereby saving at least six to twelve months. The current B. Tech. students, both from Mechanical Engineering and outside Mechanical Engineering, are allowed to change to dual degree M. Tech. program in Mechanical Engineering.
A person, who have passed Higher Secondary/Intermediate (10+2) with science stream or any other examination recognized as equivalent thereto, shall be eligible for the course.
