The B. Tech. programme structure meets the requirements of AICTE stated in the Model Curriculum (proposed by AICTE in 2012) and as indicated in the table above.

The courses of FIRST THREE semesters and the overall structure have been approved by the BOS, however the courses of the remaining semesters (FOUR to EIGHT) are yet to be approved.

Courses will be reverse offered as an operational flexibility.

There might be changes in the LTP structure of courses based on the recommendations of BOS and experience of offering the course in the previous occasion.

The electives are indicative only and will be offered depending on the availability of faculty members to teach the courses, minimum 10 students registering for the courses, relevance of the courses to the programme and other requirements.
