The Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, has launched a new bachelor’s programme BTech in Mathematics in Computing. Admissions to the programme will be done through the scores of JEE Advanced. The complete course structure and eligibility details are available on the official website at iisc.ac.in.

The institute has so far not released any timeline for admission to the programme and the deadlines will soon be posted on the IISc website. There would be a total of 52 seats, including 8 supernumerary seats for female candidates and 4 for foreign nations/NRI/OCI. Students can also obtain an MTech degree by taking an additional year of the course and project credits.

To be eligible to apply, the student must have cleared class 12 or equivalent from a recognised board with the following subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, a language, and any subject other than the above four. The details of the counselling process for admission to the BTech programme have not been finalised yet.

“We have approached the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) of the IITs to join with them. If successful, the application and counselling will be conducted by the JoSAA as per JoSAA business rules. Else it will take place via the IISc admissions portal,” the official website read.

The core of the program spread over four semesters includes six courses each in mathematics and computing areas apart from courses in the sciences, humanities, and other engineering disciplines.
