Students of AP IIIT to study IIT Syllabus

Students of AP IIIT to study IIT Syllabus

First batch students of the International Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) functioning under the Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies (RGUKT) will be no less than IIT graduate as they will be studying IIT syllabus from this year onwards.

The first batch of students who will be moving into third year of the six-year integrated course will start their engineering preparatory course from this year and the University is adopting the curriculum that is almost similar to the curriculum of all the top IITs in the country.

"Since the concept of IIITs is totally different to the State engineering colleges the RGUKT has prepared curriculum to ensure students get the best," an official said.

Facing competition

The RGUKT Vice-Chancellor, R.V. Raja Kumar, who was the Dean, Academics, at IIT Kharagpur before taking up this assignment was personally involved in curriculum preparation and used his expertise. In fact, as the Dean at IIT Kharagpur he was actively involved in designing a new curriculum for the IIT. That experience and expertise helped in designing curriculum for the new generation. He agreed that he was aware of the needs of these students who have to go out and face competition at the global level.


As an ex-IITian, he is well aware of the need for quality faculty to implement the academic plans.

As a part of that the RGUKT has recruited 141 teachers this year and they were picked up from campus recruitments in IITs and Indian Institute of Sciences, Bangalore.

Most of them are M.Tech, including gold medallists and some are Ph.Ds. "I personally supervised the selections and most of them have chosen these teaching jobs over lucrative offers from other corporates," he says.

About five people backed out on the salary issue but most of them have already joined.


To attract good talent to these institutes, Prof. Kumar says he has taken up the issue with the State government. "Unless you give them good salaries it's difficult to retain them," he reminds adding that those selected have genuine interest in serving in rural areas. Meanwhile, the University is making all efforts to complete the infrastructure before the new batch of 3,000 students join in the three institutes. Admissions will be completed by June end and classes will begin in the third week of July.
