IISc Bangalore Launches New BTech Course; admissions through JEE Advanced

The Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, has launched a new undergraduate degree program which is BTech in Mathematics in Computing. Admission to the program will be done through JEE Advanced scores. The full course structure and eligibility details are available on the official website at: iisc.ac.in.

The Institute has not released a timeline for admission to the program and the deadlines will be posted on the IISc website shortly. There will be a total of 52 seats, of which 8 are redundant seats for female candidates and 4 for foreign nations/NRA/OCI. Students can also earn an MTech degree by taking an additional year of course and project credits.

For General/OBC/EWS category candidates, the fee is Rs 2,20,200 for the first year. While SC/ST category candidates are only required to pay Rs 20,200 during the first academic year.

To be eligible to apply, the student must have completed class 12 or equivalent from a recognized board with the following subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, a Language and any subject other than the above four. The details of the guidance process for admission into the BTech program has not been finalized yet.

“We approached the IIT’s Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) to join them. If successful, the application and guidance will be performed by the JoSAA according to the JoSAA business rules. Otherwise, it will take place through the IISc admission portal,” the official website read.

The core of the program, spread over four semesters, includes six courses in mathematics and computer science, excluding courses in the sciences, humanities, and other engineering disciplines.

“To help students navigate a wide range of available courses and guide them toward specialization, pathways of study have been designed in mathematics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, computational science, theoretical computer science, quantum computing, signal processing, computational biology, and mathematical finance. Students can opt for research/industry projects in their fourth year”, reads the website.
