Course and Credit Details

General Details

  1. There are five discipline core courses. The remaining courses (excluding the open electives) are grouped into three specialization baskets.
  2. It is mandatory to take one course from each basket with minimum 9 credits.
  3. Students who would like to go for a specialization must take at least 9 more credits (in addition to the mandatory credits in Point 2) from whichever basket they want to specialize in.
  4. Those who do not want any specialization can take courses to satisfy 9 credits from across the baskets.
  5. The post graduate project is of one year duration.
  6. Post graduate projects should be industry sponsored.
  7. Post graduate project starts from the summer following the first year and extends to the third and fourth semesters.
  8. Students who would like to go for a specialization must have their post graduate project in the same basket.
  9. Systems Design should be taken during the winter break after the first semester.

$ Out of these 18 credits, at least 9 credits must be earned by taking one course each from the 3 baskets. At least 9 credits should be chosen from the same basket (if a specialization is desired) or from across baskets (if no specialization is desired.)

^ Any graduate level course outside of the Communication and Signal Processing discipline from the school or from other schools is acceptable as outside discipline elective.
