IIT Kharagpur now plans to bring the flexible credit based system in the year 2016

IIT Kharagpur will soon introduce the new credit based system which would allow the students the flexibility to complete the four year B.tech course in three and a half years.

For each course there would be pre specified credit which allows a student the flexibility to complete his course at his own pace.

Fast paced students can finish off six months earlier while those who want to go for year long internship can go in between and come back to finish the course later on.

The new system which is part of an academic review to modernise the institute undergraduate and postgraduate courses, would be introduced in phases from 2016.

Rajendra singh the dean of undergraduate studies told PTI that if some B.Tech students need more time then they would be given upto eight years while a five year dual degree course can be completed in seven years.

Professors said that the step was being taken as it has been noticed that many students were bitten by the entrepreneurship bug during their course and they needed time to launch their start ups.

The students can take a break from the studies for their own venture.

Others want time for long internships to get industry exposure which increases their employability and adds to their qualification. Again in some cases the learning process may just be little slow.

A team of professors of the institute studied the best practices in the top 20 universities of the world, including the Massachusetts Institute of technology in US and then devised the new credit based system.
