At present, the institute offers a 4-year programme leading to the Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.) degree in three disciplines, viz., Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering, with a sanctioned intake of 40 students in each. The curriculum followed at IIT Ropar provides a comprehensive technical education, with a view to produce quality engineer- scientists. It facilitates broad-based knowledge acquisition and, simultaneously, nurtures a temper of life-long learning and exploration. Students are encouraged to go beyond the classroom to conduct and carry out independent work by means of research projects, guided reading, and by allowing them to join the research activities undertaken by faculty members. The idea behind such a fashioning of the curriculum is the belief that classroom activities must be supplemented by independent study and also by individual research that broadens one's horizon and provides opportunities to bring one's ideas to fruition.
