Academic Overview

The departments equip the students with the necessary skills in their respective trades of engineering through their rigorous regime of classes and practical exposure, for five days every week. The academic session is divided into two semesters with 100 working days in the odd semesters and 80 working days in the even semesters. Growth and academic caliber of the students is constantly monitored by class tests, quizzes and assignments. To continue the momentum of studies, each semester has two Mid Semester exams whose marks add up and decide the overall performance of a particular student. Moreover, recently, as per the demand of the industry, the focus of teaching has departed from a predominantly bookish methodology, to a more practical approach. Course structures have been revamped in recent years to incorporate the quintessential skills required by the Industry. Moreover, students have been given the luxury to customize their course template to a huge extent, with as many as 7-9 elective courses, which could be courses from any department they like, including MBA courses, so that they have an edge. Added to it are the Human Values courses which aim at improving Emotional Quotient (E.Q.) of the undergraduates. In order to improve the inquisitive appetite of the students, Design & Innovation Hub has been started, which is open to all students. Added to this is the concept of Tinkering Labs, where students can get hands on experience in their area of interest. The Central Instrumentation Facility, which hosts various sophisticated instruments to cater to the needs of cutting edge research in many areas of modern science and technology, is also a new venture of the college, as an effort to continue its pursuit of academic excellence.

As an evidence of academic excellence achieved by IIT (BHU), four of its Engineering Departments are recognized by UGC as Center of Advanced Study; two others are recognized for Special Assistance Program. In addition, six departments have also received UGC support under the COSIST program and eight departments have received support under FIST program of DST, New Delhi. The DST also established the National Electron Microscope Facility (NELMIF) way back in 1982. The Departments of Metallurgical and Mining Engineering have been identified as centers under the Quality Improvement Program.

The Institute through its demanding curriculum has made it mandatory for all students to pursue an Industrial Internship Programs in their third year accompanied by the Industrial Tour to the various department concerned industries.

All the laboratories of the institute are equipped with modern instruments and machinery to equip students with the fundamental knowledge pertaining to their respective streams. All the departments are equipped with the latest and world class technology through their "Sophisticated Instrument Laboratories".

Various Seminars and Guest lectures are organized by the institute to facilitate the students with an insight into the world of professional engineering and research. Professional Communication is a necessary part of the student curriculum, which has been given due significance in recent times owing to the growing emphasis on need for soft skills and to make our graduates more employable.
