Students at IIT Bombay can complete their B Tech programme in just three-and-a-half years instead of four from the coming academic year.
The radical move to offer a fast-track B.Tech degree as an option to students across courses was taken in a recent senate meeting of the institute.
Students who are keen on completing the course faster, can choose to take up additional credits and complete their course in just three and a half years.
As of now, none of the older IITs have started offering the fast-track B.Tech, but, IIT Kharagpur is moving towards it and plans to implement it from the 2017 batch.
The system will enable the students to learn at their own pace, without any stress. However, there will be a limit on the campus stay.
