IIT Bhilai is currently offering four-year B.Tech., two-year M.Tech and Ph.D degree programs. The Academic system and culture of IIT Bhilai is inspired by that at IIT Hyderabad. The highlight of the academics here is the Fractal System of distributing courses across the semesters. The curriculum lays strong emphasis on developing industrial and practical skills while backing them up with a concrete theoretical foundation.
After the first semester you are given an opportunity to change your branch. Your GPA should meet the criteria laid down by the Academic section. Tip: For a smooth branch change try to keep GPA above 9. However, cutoffs for branch change are usually relative.
