Undergraduate Admissions

IIITDM Kurnool offers 4 year B.Tech programs in Computer Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering with specialization in Design and Manufacturing (EDM), and Mechanical Engineering with specialization in Design and Manufacturing (MDM). The innovative design centric academic programmes are the improved versions of similar programmes successfully offered at IIITDM Kancheepuram from 2007 onwards. Students passed out from these branches from the parent institute are serving in the reputed organization and industries and pursue higher education in the best universities world wide.

B.Tech programmes of the Institute is unique and which imbibe the principle of “Learning By Doing”. The pedagogical practices followed at IIITDM Kancheepuram employ experiential learning to produce design engineers equipped with good hands on experience in the respective engineering sector.

Practice based courses are given more importance and weightage and state-of-the art hardware, software and other facilities are introduced. The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) based Computer Engineering curriculum offers more electronics engineering courses, and hence will produce engineers with skills required for efficient hardware software interaction and intelligent product design and development.

Computer & Electronics and Communication Engineering (Design & Manufacturing) graduates of IIITDM will be proficient with design and development of complex electronic and communication systems and subsystems as a result of the exhaustive exposure to emerging areas such as embedded systems, VLSI design, human computer interaction, power electronics, control and instrumentation.

Mechanical engineering graduates will be equipped with good hands on skills in sensors, controls, electronics and automation, in addition to the conventional mechanical engineering areas. The laboratories are equipped with state of the art and modern equipments to supplement the experiential learning thrust of the curricula. The curricula involve engineering simulation courses to enhance the visualization skills and our laboratories are equipped with high end workstations and powerful simulation softwares.

All the faculty at IIITDM Kancheepuram and Kurnool are Doctoral degree holders with a good research background. The Institute has well equipped laboratories and software required for the undergraduate programmes offered.
