Course subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, English, Biology, Environmental Science are taught in their 1st four semesters. Credit based course on Environmental education is a part of the curriculum. Projects on community engagement and social service are undertaken by students every semester. For example, Distribution of necessary accessories to orphanages and old age homes, blood donation camps, educating women on health and hygiene etc. The completion of the projects are credited as a part of their Mandatory Additional Requirement (MAR) points. As per the present curriculum structure B.Tech. Students take admission in 1st year and in 2nd year (lateral entry)and finally complete the course at the end of 4th year.
