The primary objective of B.Tech. program at IIIT Sri City is to prepare aspiring students having potential to face challenges with industry ready standards. The unique curriculum offered facilitates students in becoming top-notch engineers/entrepreneurs while also equipping them to pursue higher studies and research work. The curriculum at IIIT Sri City emphasizes Outcome Based Education (OBE) and follows a student-centric teaching and learning methodology designed to help students achieve well-defined objectives after completing the courses. We give ample opportunity to learn both fundamentals of theory as well as its application aspects. The curriculum is designed on the foundation of concepts that is driven by real-world practices which is duly covered in the first half of the program. The second half is engaging in the sense that it provides avenues for developing special skills and gaining knowledge in various sub-areas, gives hands-on approach through well-guided project works and also provides the much-needed flexibility in selecting courses that suit individual students.

Besides well-designed core subjects, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Skill Building Programs are an integral and interesting part of our distinctive curriculum. Students are encouraged to take part in extracurricular activities and community work throughout their undergraduate program with us. This exceptional curriculum and programs bear fruits for students in terms of their placements with global companies. We offer friendly and pleasant living conditions that present just the right atmosphere to explore academic and non-academic interests. With global MNCs located in and around the campus, the doors are open for students to navigate their research or entrepreneurial interests as well. Proximity to industries, corporates and all the advantages a Smart City brings, a student is in the best place at IIITS.

While each program has a well-defined specific outcome, the Institute focuses on attaining following general outcomes for each one of its student:

  • Be a self-learner and possess an urge for life-long learning
  • Ace behavioral skills like team player, leadership, interpersonal relations, etc
  • Gain superior communication skills
