DUAL DEGREE

CATEGORY A: B. Tech (Civil Engineering) + M. Tech (Civil Engineering)

 

 
 

 

Students may apply for Category-A dual degree program after their 5th, 6th, or 7th semesters.  However the Civil Engineering Department prefers that students apply for the CATEGORY-A dual degree program during their 6th semester, i.e., they start their dual degree program from the 7th semester onwards. 

 

Students in their 6th semester and wanting to opt for the dual degree program must apply in response to the call for admission to the CATEGORY-A dual degree program made during that semester.  There are no limits on the number of seats for Category-A dual degree program of the Civil Engineering Department.  If accepted in the CATEGORY-A dual degree program of Civil Engineering Department, the student must get the consent of any Civil Engineering faculty member to be his/her thesis supervisor and register for courses and thesis credits in the 7th – 10th semester with the consent of the thesis supervisor.  The students are also advised to follow the suggested template for Category-A Dual Degree Program.

 

A CATEGORY-A dual degree student is entitled to a waiver of 45-OE credits and 9-DE credits from the B.Tech (Civil Engineering) graduation requirements.  Further, such students can take CE491A or CE492A for OE credits. 

 

A CATEGORY-A dual degree student can request for withdrawal from the M. Tech part of the dual degree program at any time during the course of the dual degree program.  Further, the M. Tech part of the program will be withdrawn if a student is more than 40 credits short of the total credit requirement of her/his B. Tech program at the end of the eighth semester.  Students should consult UG manual for minimum PG-CPI requirements of the dual degree program.

 

In case the M. Tech part of the program of a CATEGORY-A dual degree student is withdrawn for any reason, the student will be required to complete all mandatory graduation requirements of the undergraduate program for graduation with a B. Tech degree.  However, PG courses taken towards M. Tech degree may be counted as OE credits for the UG graduation requirements.
