  5. M. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering with specialization in Thermal and Energy Systems Engineering 
  6. 3-year M. Tech in Computer Science and Engineering with specialization in Computer Technology 

Apart from these, IIT Jammu offers Ph. D. in all disciplines - Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Humanities and Social Science, Materials Engineering, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, and Physics. MSc and MSR in Physics and Chemistry have started in 2022. 


The curriculum has been structured to be interdisciplinary and hands-on to cater to the global community's rapidly changing scientific /technological needs. Research focus and Job-market requirements in the current era have been cutting across all disciplines (eg: Bio-engineering, IoT, AI, Data Science, Smart Cities, Energy for the Future, Health Care, Functional and Interactive Devices, Advanced Materials for Innovative Applications to advance our life quality, Smart Manufacturing, Smart Cities, Water Resources, Climate Change, Himalayan Region Logistics, etc.). In such a scenario, we must make flexible and permeable boundaries between various engineering disciplines and programs offered in the Institution. At the same time, we aim to maintain the core flavours of the programs.

Engineering is all about solving real-life problems using the sound knowledge of Mathematics and Sciences. And these smart solutions are cutting across boundaries of conventional engineering disciplines and require a proper understanding of how our society functions and its cultural ethos, interpersonal skills, behavioural patterns, humanistic management, etc. 

The design of IIT Jammu academic curriculum is based on the fundamental premise that the students are coming in the programs to learn, to innovate, and solve the interdisciplinary issues that we need to address by evolving novel engineering system design. The IIT Jammu programs shall target broad expectations from Bachelor’s education in engineering to:

(a) Impart knowledge of engineering, technology, and science fundamentals to encourage critical thinking. It will be done in consonance with humanistic and societal needs. Through the structure of our proposed programs, we would encourage the creative design of engineering systems with a connection to a National perspective.

(b) Develop sound fundamentals and technical and soft skills to enable relearning in future.

(c) Inculcate professional and ethical conduct.

(d) IIT Jammu would like to position itself as an active science-based engineering and technology education lab. Our programs shall aim to create value through entrepreneurial effort.

(e) The courses in the programs shall be targeted to “uncover the cores, rather than covering everything”. This approach shall form the basis for innovation.


4 -year undergraduate bachelor's program has been designed to fulfil a particular program's course requirements and expose students to the fundamental concepts of all branches of engineering, technology, and humanities. Emphasis has been laid on devoting a substantial portion of the total credits to experimental education through laboratory experiments and hands-on projects permeating across disciplines. Engineering and basic sciences courses are accompanied by the corresponding lab training in addition to various projects which will be taken up by the students. Design & Practicum education has been incorporated in the academic curriculum from the first semester to introduce, excite and encourage students and to open avenues for each student to experiment and execute their ideas as they are full of energy and curiosity after their school education. Outreach projects to provide engineering and technological solutions to the real-life problems faced by society and industry are an integral part of the academic curriculum. Research components will be dispersed throughout the program. 

A concrete program giving equal importance to the core engineering subjects as well as Engineering Foundation, Essential basic and applied science foundation, HSS core, and Design Practicum have been proposed. Introduction to various branches of engineering gives them the flexibility to do interdisciplinary projects (like transport, systems development, integrated novel solutions, green energy, health care, waste management, new energy resources, complex manufacturing, etc.), which will give them the freedom to harness their skills in any discipline.

Students are encouraged to get a minor degree in any area of engineering/applied sciences/humanities/management to fulfil their inter-discipline interests. The curriculum also aims to give a choice to focus and go deeper into an area of specialization. 

By obtaining the degree, students of IIT Jammu must be able to

(i) Pursue higher studies in their domain / in any interdisciplinary area.

(ii) Adapt to the emerging trends in engineering/scientific/technological fields.

(iii) Be a sensitive and responsible engineer, innovator, job creator, and great human being.

The academic curriculum is a credit-based system. UG Rules and Regulations will describe discipline-wise credits to be earned and other modalities. Students can pursue additional Minor area degrees/Honors degrees by earning a certain number of credits. Each credit is equivalent to 1-hour of classroom teaching / 2 hours of laboratory training. It also requires 2-3 hrs of beyond classroom study per credit. Further details can be obtained from the academic office.

Rules For Change Branch

No Change of Branch
There is no provision of branch change in IIT Jammu curriculum. It is due to the provision of interdisciplinary nature of newly devised curriculum with a much wider common core encompassing many engineering disciplines. 

Many other features like design and research component, humanities breadth with social relevance, and minor area options are available to suit the students in exploring different Engineering disciplines. The curriculum template has been structured to be inter-disciplinary and hands-on in nature to cater to the rapidly changing scientific/technological needs of the global community.


IIT Jammu has a good mix of vibrant young and experienced senior faculty in all disciplines. We have faculties from diverse areas of research in Science and Engineering. All faculties have prior experience from different reputed International / National Institutions.  

IIT Jammu faculties are engaged in multi-disciplinary research with generous financial support from many Government and National / International agencies in the collaboration with faculties from different National / International institutes. There are about 100 Faculty members currently associated who take regular courses. There are about 24 Adjunct Faculty as well visiting the campus.

Detailed faculty profiles are available on Our Faculty page at the institute website. 

A snapshot of active research and areas of interest is available on the Areas of Research page on the website. 

IIT Jammu gets great support from faculty at IITs and Adjunct Faculty visiting the campus.

SBI IIT Jammu branch is operational. ICICI and J&K Banks have their ATMs alongside the hostels near the cafeteria. The present campus, alive on 25 acres, is self-sufficient for most of the needs of our students. Further expansion to a lush green campus is underway. 

IIT Jammu has taken a giant technological leap since its inception. We have realized the dream of an almost automated institute in terms of access to infrastructure and processes.

IIT Jammu has campus-wide ubiquitous Wi-Fi and 1 Gbps internet connectivity. We have a functional e-Governance solution live for automation of our Academics, Students, HR, Accounting, and Procurement. We onboarded the journey of online classes in March 2020 and are sailing through this very comfortably using our investment in technology. The state-of-the-art High-Performance Computing (HPC) facility became operational in Nov 2020. We have started InSight webinars and several regular interactions with the great minds of our country for the IIT Jammu community.
