All new undergraduate students undergo a five-week Foundation Programme designed to nurture creativity, communication skills, ethics, teamwork, social engagement and physical fitness. To promote critical thinking and an appreciation of the interdisciplinary character of knowledge, students take almost 20% of their coursework in the humanities and social sciences – nearly twice the proportion of other leading engineering colleges in the country – as well as courses in design and the life sciences. We empower our students to discover and pursue their passion with a very liberal branch change policy, dual major and dual degree programmes, an emphasis on project based learning and options for honors/minors.
