The academic programme at IIT Jammu would follow the curriculum of IIT Delhi to begin with. IIT Jammu will evolve its own curriculum with time. Thus, in the first year, all students, irrespective of the branch, will undergo the same curriculum. In the first year, the students would do courses on basic sciences and basic engineering. In addition, non-graded courses on language, professional ethics & social responsibility and introduction to engineering are also included. The institute will follow a credit system and the performance in a course will be continuously evaluated. A relative grading system will be followed.
Currently the institute offers three UG programs namely, B.tech in Computer science, B.tech in Electrical Engineering and B.tech in Mechanical Engineering with the intake capacity of 30 in each branch.The admission to these programs is done through JEE-Advanced.
During the formative years, most of the courses at IIT Jammu will be handled by experienced faculty from IIT Delhi. Care is being taken to make sure that, in the coming years, the faculty will remain a mix of young and experienced.
