The Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) is one of the Indian Institutes of Technology in the country, set up with the objective of making available facilities for higher education, research and training in various fields of Science and Technology. The Institute is now recognized as a leader in science and engineering education not only in India, but worldwide. It has established a firm foundation for education and research with a highquality faculty base and having a vision to be the fountainhead of new ideas and innovations in technology and science. The mission of IIT Bombay is to create an ambiance in which new ideas, research and scholarship flourish and from which the leaders and innovators of tomorrow emerge.
IIT Bombay on an average annually admits around 900 candidates for the undergraduate programmes (B.Tech./Dual Degree and 4 year B.S.) through Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), 30 candidates for B.Des. Programme through Undergraduate Common Entrance Exam for Design (UCEED) around 300 candidates for 2year M.Sc., M.Sc. Ph.D. Dual Degree, M.Sc.+M.Tech. Dual Degree programmes, over 800 candidates for different postgraduate programmes and around 300 candidates for various Ph.D programmes. IIT Bombay follows a specialized creditbased semester system. There are two semesters in an academic year (Autumn: July Nov; and Spring: JanuaryApril) during which all courses specified for various degree programmes are offered. There is one additional semester during summer, called the Summer Semester, for summer courses. The students are required to follow certain procedures and meet specified academic requirements each semester.
This booklet gives comprehensive information on the existing Rules and Regulations for B.Tech., Dual Degree and 4 year B.S. Programmes.
IIT Bombay gives freedom to its various Departments /Centers / IDPs to tailor their academic programmes as per their specific needs, within the frame work of the Rules and Regulations approved by the Senate from time to time. Keeping in view the ever growing challenges and new developments, IIT Bombay revised its Undergraduate Programme (w.e.f. the Academic year 2013). The revised programme, provides additional opportunities and flexibility for students to optimize their learning experience. This needs continuous and meticulous planning of the academic profile on the part of each student to fully utilize the opportunities. The students, and parents/ guardians, are therefore, advised in their own interest to get fully familiar with the Academic system of the Institute, since in many ways it is different from what they would have come across earlier. Student’s attention is brought particularly to the assessment procedures and the specific rules governing the grading system, academic performance requirements, etc.
IIT Bombay is a studentoriented place and endeavor to ensure that our students are offered the best opportunities that are needed to create outstanding scientists and engineers.
Thank you for your interest in IIT Bombay. We wish all our students a very bright future and a successful career.

1 INTRODUCTION B.Tech./ Dual Degree / 4 year B.S. / B.Des. programmes consist of courses in basic sciences, humanities and social sciences, engineering and technology and other related topics. The sequence of studies broadly consists of three phases.
The first phase is an intense study of sciences, mathematics and humanities for deeper understanding of concepts than what was done in school. This is common for all UG programmes.
The second phase is the study of engineering sciences and technical arts (such as workshop, engineering graphics, etc.). This study is a broad based knowledge in general engineering, and engineering methodologies, and enables the students to appreciate the links between science and engineering. This phase is also, by and large, common for all UG programmes, and overlaps with the first phase.
In the third phase, the students are exposed to subjects in their chosen areas of study, designed to train them in the methodologies of analysis of problems and synthesis of solutions. The courses cover the principles governing systems and processes, and develop the ability for physical and analytical modeling, design and development. They are also introduced to engineering practices through laboratory courses, projects, etc., and these may vary from discipline to discipline.
In parallel with the third phase, students can strive to broaden their perspectives through two open Institute electives where they can take courses drawn from across the Institute.
4 year B.S. programme students, in addition, work independently on a project, wherein they investigate natural and abstract problems and produce mathematical, computational and/or experimental results.
Dual Degree students do additional courses to get indepth knowledge in their chosen disciplines, often with specializations. In addition, they work on a research and development project during their final year.
