Edu Minister Launches New BS Course at IIT Madras

Edu Minister Launches New BS Course: Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Monday launched a four-year Bachelor of Science (BS) course at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. The new BS in Electronic Systems course will be delivered online.

Unlike other undergraduate courses offered by the institute, campaigners can take admitted to this one without appearing in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE).

The course has been launched with the idea of meeting the growing demand of professed graduates in the electronics and embedded manufacturing sector in India, IIT Madras said, adding that this program will have multiple exits feature, enabling scholars to leave with a certificate, diploma or to finish the whole course and get a BS degree.

“The program aligns with the India Semiconductor Mission to make India a global hub for electronics manufacturing and design. This is the alternate online BS program from IIT Madras following BS Degree in Data Science and Applications, which has more than 17,000 scholars studying presently,” IIT Madras said.

With an aim of making IIT education more accessible, the fee of the course has been kept affordable, with additional scholarships for SC, ST, and PwD campaigners and campaigners whose family income is lower than ₹ 5 lacks per annum, it added.

Addressing the launch event, Pradhan said, “ After successfully running the course of BS in Data Science for the last many years, IIT Madras has another feather in its cap- BS in electronic systems. This is the right approach to applying National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. All the recommendations of NEP, whether it’s flexibility, job-oriented, entrepreneurship-oriented, credit framework are attached to this architecture, multiple entry and exit, and overall, affordability in the Indian higher education system with quality and accessibility are present in this BS in Electronic Sytems.”

IIT Madras said scholars graduating from this program can find job openings in industries similar to Automotive, Semiconductor, and Defence, among others, for positions like Electronic System Designer, Embedded System Developer, Electronic Hardware Specialist, System Testing Engineer, and Electronics Research Engineer.

There’s no upper age limit to study BS Electronic Systems at IIT Madras. Campaigners who have passed Class 12 or equivalent with Maths and Physics can take admission.

Admission to the program is possible without JEE. The selection process will have an in-built 4-week qualifier process. Campaigners who apply will be handed access to 4 weeks of content taught by IIT Madras faculty and the qualifier test will be based on this content alone.
