Minor: Since a Minor is an option rather than a requirement, students may consider their passions and goals before pursuing any Minor in conjunction with their declared Major. A student has an option to either choose a Minor within Engineering, or outside Engineering. In case of a Minor within engineering, it can be in any department other than the student’s Majoring department. For instance, a Computer Science and Engineering student can do a minor in Electronics and Communication Engineering or Electrical and Electronics Engineering. And, in case of a Minor from outside Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering student can do a minor in Economics, History, or Journalism. The student will have to meet certain eligibility criteria set by respective departments in order to opt for a Minor.
To earn a Minor, a student should complete four to six courses worth 12 to 18 credits in addition to the stipulated credit requirement for earning a Major (i.e., 180 credits).
Credit requirement: Around 192 to 198 credits (Major worth 180 credits + Minor worth 12 to 18 credits)
Degree nomenclature: The degree will contain the Major / Major with Specialization. The Minor pursued by the student will be provided in the transcript along with details on courses completed and associated credits. For instance- a student who pursued Computer Science and Engineering with a Minor in History, the degree will read “B. Tech in Computer Science and Engineering” and the Minor in History will be reflected in the transcript.
