B Tech Programmes are offered at NIIT University through a transformational process involving multidisciplinary courses of Engineering, Humanities and Social Sciences, laboratories, R&D projects, Industry Practice, in addition to other co-curricular components, the B Tech Programmes seek to create exceptional leaders trained to operate in tomorrow’s complex technology-oriented business environment. The 4-year B Tech programme comprises 8 semesters. The courses are categorized into:
Programme Core - Humanities, Social Sciences & Management - to acquire interdisciplinary knowledge
Professional Core - to gain proficiency in domain area
Professional Electives - to specialize in an industry-specific domain
R&D Project - to inculcate a strong research bent of mind
Open Electives - to orient towards professional interests
Industry Practice - to build seamlessness with the world of work through Industry-work or Industry-oriented research
The first four semesters of the B Tech Programmes are devoted to theoretical and hands-on laboratory training in Programme Core, Basic Sciences, and foundational courses from Professional Core. This is followed by advanced courses spread over the next three semesters along with an R&D project. The final semester is dedicated to Industry Practice (IP) wherein students get to work on real-life projects outside the college and in the industry for six months leading to the completion of the B Tech Programme.

Activity-Oriented Credit-based Courses for B Tech under HSS Category
It is a well-recognized fact that success in the world of work is not achieved merely by being good in knowledge domain, but it is also determined by the so called non-academic attributes or qualities possessed by an individual, such as collaboration and cooperation or team work, ability to withstand the time pressure without loss of focus, planning and organizing abilities, leadership, etc.
The co-curricular activities undertaken in the numerous clubs at NU in arts, photography, robotics, drama, etc. impart the above qualities so essential for competitive survival in professional world, but they lie totally outside the ledger of academic accounting.
To correct this myopic view, B Tech students can, apart from the regular courses from Humanities & Social Sciences, choose courses based the activities undertaken in the clubs outside the classroom. The necessary academic rigor has been defined to give academic credits to these activity-based courses.
Industry Practice (IP) at Engineering Colleges in B Tech
IP conducted at the site of the organization provides students with an opportunity to gain experience working in interdisciplinary teams on real assignments. The duration of IP is six months. During IP at the computer science colleges, students are guided by a dedicated faculty mentor and a mentor from the organization.
