Department of Engineering Science
B.Tech. in Engineering Science, at IIT Hyderabad, is unique program offered in India for the first time. It completely opens the doors to different specializations and provides a holistic engineering education. The basic structure is as follows: For the first 2.5 years (5 semesters) the student does basics courses in Math, Physics, Chemistry, and different fields of engineering. In the last 1.5 years (3 semesters) the student then specializes in any field of his / her choice -- specialization is completely open: It could be any branch of engineering -- Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical, Mechanical, Chemical, Civil, Material Science, BioTech, Biomed -- or Physics, or Mathematics, or Chemistry, or Economics, or Psychology, or Design, etc. The final degree will read: B.Tech. in Engineering Science with Specialization in XXX.
This is the first program that caters to what is often referred to as the "T Education"; the horizontal line in 'T' corresponds to an education giving breadth, while the vertical line in 'T' corresponds to an education giving depth. The new Engineering Science Program achieves breadth as well as depth.
