India based Bharti School of Telecommunication Technology and Management, a joint initiative of Bharti Foundation and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, is all set to launch a host of new programmes like internship, distance-learning, executive and post-doctoral programmes.
Started in 2000, the school has already instituted 10 seats for PhD in Telecom Systems Management and a Master of science (MS) research programme in Telecom Technology and Management. Most of these are likely to commence by the next academic session. The distance-learning will involve lectures delivered in a tele-studio in Bharti School and broadcast using Internet protocol (IP) or very small aperture terminal (VSAT) technology to classrooms outside IIT-Delhi. Presently, the entry into all programmes of the school, namely Masters of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Technology (MTech.) and others is done as per IIT's regular admission procedures. The entry into M. Tech program is on the basis of Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) scores and interview. The admission to the MBA programme is on the basis of the Joint Management Entrance Test (JMET), followed by an interview. The entry into MS- Research and PhD programmes is on the basis of marks and interview. The school is in the process of working out the modalities of entrance examination for all the new programmes.
