Students pursuing a B Tech-M Tech dual degree at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay, will now be able to make a shift to the institute’s M Tech-PhD programme seamlessly. A proposal on seamless integration of the undergraduate programmes with the doctoral programme at the point of admission/entry was recently approved by the institute. The B Tech degree will be awarded in the interim.

IIT Bombay will be the first IIT to introduce such a scheme for its students. “Normally, students who register for PhD have to complete a certain number of credits. The proposed scheme will enable them to complete these courses while they are pursuing their B Tech-M Tech dual degree by planning them out. This will save a lot of time. Such a scheme will thus be beneficial for those who are keen on doing a PhD. It will also facilitate further growth of our PhD programme,” said professor Shiva Prasad, dean of academic programmes, IIT Bombay.
