One of the few sports activities in IIT, where we now boast about several National level swimmers; one of those activities that dispels the running myth that IIT students just study,study and .......! The Swimming club started functioning in 1983. Since then, every year, one or more swimmers, have regularly been selected by Maharashtra, to represent the State at the Nationals. Several campus youngsters have got motivated to join, and have excelled at the sub-junior/junior level. The IIT Swimming club regularly holds NSO swimming activities for students. Advanced swimming camps are held year round for swimmers showing promise. The IIT Aquatic team has made a habit of returning with the GOLD from almost all Inter IIT Aquatic meets held so far. Every year, triathlon competetions are held for IIT students and campus children. A 12-hour SWIMMATHON, is an annual event eagerly awaited and gleefully entered by IIT students and campus children.

Considered a very prestigious swimming event in Swimming circles, it attracts the best from all over the state. The IIT coach is Dr. P. M. Reddy.

The group also holds discussions, seminars, and attends various camps also regarding the NGOs, rural activities, etc.

Finance Club -

After being out of the headlines for a couple of years, SIGFIN was resurrected this semester, thanks mainly to the enthu shown by a few 4th - yearites. An introductory lecture on the stock market was held some time back, to an enthusiastic response. SIGFIN plans to hold such seminars regularly with professors from the School of Management and IITB alumni active in the financial field slated to talk about their fields of work and interest.

Dear Sohail Imtiyaj Khan,

Unfortunately, IIT Bombay does not offer any lateral entry programme for B.Tech. IIT Bombay admissions to the B.Tech programme are made through the Joint Entrance Examination Advanced (JEE Advanced) exam. However, IIT Bombay does offer a dual degree (B.Tech + M.Tech) programme in some departments, and students who have completed a diploma in engineering from a recognised institute are eligible to apply for admission to the second year of the dual degree program through the GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) exam.
