The programmes and courses offered at the institute have the flexibility to evolve and change in response to new requirements. They serve the dual purpose of building a solid foundation of knowledge and of enhancing confidence, creativity and innovation in its students.
A unique attribute of IIT Bombay's academic structure is the autonomy enjoyed by the faculty in designing and structuring courses and curriculum. All courses, however, are approved by the Senate of IIT Bombay. A favourable student-teacher ratio ensures productive, personal contact between the student and the teacher.
Finally, credit-based academic programmes offer flexibility to students to progress at their own pace. This system ensures academic programmes which are dynamic and constantly evolving and which reflect the institute’s commitment to stay in tune with the expanding frontiers of knowledge worldwide.
