Biology, management, yoga, sports, environment, English, social sciences, humanities all these will be offered as subjects at International Institute of Information Technology-Bangalore (IIIT-B). Surprised? Actually, these are subjects which are part of the five-year M.Tech integrated course and which will be offered to students who have completed II PU or Class XII. The course will take off from this academic year. An important eligibility factor is that the applicant should have studied Mathematics up to Class XII. The five-year residential programme will offer a dual degree, a B.Tech and an M.Tech in IT. The core subjects will be IT. The fifth year will focus entirely on research. But why offer such a broad-based programme? Says Sadagopan S, director, IIIT-B, IT is an enabler, an enabling tool. Later, students may work in any sector. So, they need to know the basics of a wide variety of fields.
What about sports and yoga? That is because many IT professionals are known to lead a sedentary life. Introducing yoga and sports will inculcate in the young students a sense of discipline. Also, it is hoped that they will continue with sports and physical activities even as professionals and ensure a healthier lifestyle. That apart, the faculty believes that 18-year-olds who join the course will be brimming with energy, and it helps to channelize that constructively. Admission to the course is based on All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) ranks. Students must apply online. The application process is on till June.
