  • Note:- Subject to declaration/availability of All India Rank (AIR) of JEE Main 2016.
  • Information & Communication Technology (ICT) embodies the convergence of Computer and Communication systems and has obtained wide acceptance as a distinct discipline. ICT is considered to be a discipline dealing with accessing, storage, processing, transmission, reception and display of information, primarily using digital systems and techniques. The curriculum in the B.Tech (ICT) program tries to address the optimized convergence of existing Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) as well as Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) disciplines by identifying the broad areas of performance capabilities. It is also expected that B.Tech (ICT) graduates would enjoy a special niche only if they have certain performance capabilities not found in conventional CSE and/or ECE graduates.

  • Computational Science is concerned with constructing mathematical models, simulating and quantitative analysis techniques, and using computers to analyze and solve scientific problems with applications in engineering and social sciences. In Computational Science, unlike the traditional theoretical and experimental approaches, scientists and engineers gain understanding mainly through the analysis of mathematical models implemented on computers. Typically, these models require massive amounts of calculations and are often executed on high performance computing backbone consisting of supercomputers or distributed computing or several inter-connected clusters of workstations and personal computers. The curriculum in B Tech (Honours in ICT with minor in Computational Science) aims to provide expertise to the students in techniques involved in modelling and simulation of complex and large scale systems, implementation on computers through parallel and high performance computing techniques and finally analysis and visualization of these large scale data sets.

  • To complete the Computational Science Program successfully, the students have to take additional 18-24 credits worth of courses besides the usual ICT courses. The student must obtain a minimum CPI of 6.5 after completion of third Semester to continue in the program failing which she/he will be moved to the B.Tech (ICT) Program. The students enrolled in the B.Tech (Computational Science) Program can also apply for transfer to B.Tech (ICT) Program prior to the commencement of classes in any semester after completion of the third Semester. The students who have obtained a CPI of 7.5 and above may apply at the end of the third Semester for transfer to the B.Tech (Computational Science) Program and the transfer will be granted only subject to availability of seats and in descending order from the highest CPI obtained.
  • The minimum academic qualification for admission to the programs is that the candidate must have passed in final examination of 10+2 (Class XII) or its equivalent referred to as the qualifying examination (mentioned below). The candidate must have passed in final examination of 10+2 (Class XII) or its equivalent with Mathematics, Physics and any one of Chemistry/Bio-technology/Computer Science/Biology. Candidates appearing in the qualifying examination in 2016 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 31 October 2016, failing which such provisional admission will stand cancelled.

    2. Intermediate or two-year Pre-University examination conducted by a recognized Board/ University.
    3. Final examination of the two-year course of the Joint Services Wing of the National Defense Academy.
    4. Senior Secondary School Examination conducted by the National Institute of Open Schooling with a minimum of five subjects.
    5. Any Public School/ Board/ University examination in India or in any foreign country recognized as equivalent to the 10+2 system by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU).
    6. H.S.C. vocational examination.
    7. A Diploma recognized by AICTE or a State Board of Technical Education of at least 3 year duration.
    8. General Certificate Education (GCE) examination (London / Cambridge / Sri Lanka) at the Advanced (A) level.
    9. High School Certificate Examination of the Cambridge University or International Baccalaureate Diploma of the International Baccalaureate Office, Geneva.
