List of B Tech Degrees at NU

NIIT University offers the following list of B Tech Engineering Degrees:
Apart from the B Tech Engineering degrees listed above, NU also offers specialisations in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Engineering, Cloud Computing, and Geomatics.
In today’s digital age, careers across all industries are going through a transformation. As the world evolves, especially after the pandemic of 2020, job trends are also changing. According to a recent release by NASSCOM, the skills of the future would be Big Data Analytics, Cloud & Cybersecurity Services, IoT, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and many other Digital Technologies. A huge demand is foreseen for roles such as mobile app development, social media, AI and Data science and platform engineering. All of NU’s above-mentioned B Tech degree programmes are designed to meet the demands of the ever-evolving world of technology and science.

NIIT University focuses on ensuring that aspiring engineering graduates of the campus are a part of these exciting careers of the future. NU’s 4 core principles – Industry-linked, Technology-based, Research-driven and Seamless – play a critical part in achieving this.

B Tech: Approach, duration, syllabus & structure

Through a transformational approach, involving multidisciplinary courses of Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, Laboratory Work, R&D & capstone projects and Industry Practice, in addition to other co-curricular components, NU’s B Tech degree programme seeks to create exceptional professionals trained to lead in tomorrow’s complex technology-oriented business environment
The 4-year B Tech degree programme comprises 8 semesters. The programme is categorised into:
  • Humanities, Mathematics, Basic Sciences & Management – To develop analytical ability and acquire interdisciplinary knowledge
  • Professional Core – To gain proficiency in the domain area
  • Professional Electives – To specialize in an industry-specific domain
  • R&D Project – To inculcate a strong research bent of mind
  • Capstone Project – To acquire the skills needed to work in complex and collaborative work environments
  • Open Electives – To orient towards professional interests that intersect different domains
  • Activity Oriented Courses – To hone the personality traits necessary for holistic development
  • Industry Practice – To connect seamlessly with the world of work through industry work or industry-oriented research
The first four semesters of the B Tech degree programmes are devoted to theoretical and hands-on laboratory training in Basic Sciences, Mathematics and foundational courses from the Professional Core. This is followed by advanced courses spread over the next three semesters along with an R&D project and Capstone 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 BTech programme. Nearly one-third of the curriculum can be individualized by the student. Thus, the B Tech degree programme is the sum total of education measures undertaken to develop holistic and responsible individuals with life-long learning capability as there is a strong emphasis to ensure that students ‘learn to learn’ throughout their lives.

B Tech at NU: Focused on activity-oriented courses for holistic development

NU offers activity-oriented and credit-based courses for B Tech degree students.

It is a well-recognised fact that success in the world of work is not achieved merely by being good in a specialised domain of knowledge, but it is also determined by the non-academic attributes or qualities possessed by an individual, such as collaboration, team work, ability to withstand time pressure without loss of focus, planning and organising abilities, leadership, etc.

The co-curricular activities undertaken in the numerous clubs at NU in arts, photography, robotics, drama, etc. impart the above qualities essential for competitive survival in the professional world, but they lie totally outside the ledger of academic accounting.

To correct this myopic view, B Tech degree students can, apart from the regular courses from Humanities & Social Sciences, choose courses based on activities undertaken in the clubs outside the classroom. The necessary academic rigor has been defined to give academic credits to these activity-based courses.

B Tech at NU: Experiential learning and a unique industry practice at the core

Industry Practice (IP), a pedagogic innovation of NU, conducted at the site of the organisation provides students with an opportunity to gain experience working in inter-disciplinary teams on real on-going projects. The duration of IP is six months. During IP, students are guided by a dedicated faculty mentor, an onsite mentor and an industry mentor from the organization. Besides technical skills, the IP semester of the B Tech degree programme also helps build strong professional skills including planning, problem-solving, time management, written and verbal communication, cost management, team-work, meeting deadlines, initiative, confidence to complete a task, integrity and customer communication.

Minors for B Tech students

The Minor programme at NU is a separate optional certificate programme for B Tech degree students that runs in parallel to the degree programme and is offered in areas of study other than the discipline of degree programme. It allows a student to acquire expertise in complementary disciplines thus expanding their horizons and helping them add value to the industry. A student has to undertake 3-5 additional courses, one course every semester, over and above the normal prescribed courses. The programme starts in the 4th semester of the B Tech degree. Thus, a student opting for Minor programme is required to complete 12-16 additional credits over and above the credits mandated by the B Tech degree programme and can complete them within the duration of the programme. Students will receive separate certificates and transcripts on successful completion of the Minor programme.

Currently minors are offered in:
  • IOT and Automation (for BTech CSE)
  • Digital and Social Media Marketing (for all BTech)
  • Learning Engineering (for all BTech and iMBA)
  • Finance (for all BTech)
  • Business Analytics (for all BTech)
  • Entrepreneurship (for all BTech)
