    There will be no extra charge for Refresher Course and this will be an online course.

    Clarification on specialization :

  • Initial assignment of specialization to candidates that join is done for the purposes of planning. This assignment will be done based on candidate preferences and ranks.
  • A candidate's initial assignment (general MTech or MTech with specialization) has no bearing on the MTech degree a candidate gets on finishing the MTech program. A candidate is awarded a degree with a specialization if and only if the candidate has completed all the requirements (for example, completed all necessary courses) needed to get the specialization before graduation. Note that a candidate may complete all requirements of a MTech degree without completing requirements to get a MTech with a specialization.
  • The institute may disallow too many students from pursuing a specific specialization if it deems that all the students, as a part of a single specialization, will not be able to receive the best possible instruction. Currently, we do not plan to enroll more than 20 students in any given specialization. However, we do not limit the number of students that can choose to obtain a general MTech degree.
