The students entering engineering programs at VIT have two options to study. The first is to study for all the four years at VIT and get a B.Tech degree in a chosen field of engineering and then go for higher studies or take up employment in India or Abroad. The second option is the international transfer program ( ITP). ITP offers the entering students with an opportunity to study the first two years of the bachelors degree in engineering at VIT and complete the last two years of study in the USA, UK or Australia and get a degree from a partner university there.
VIT has developed a set of three engineering curricula for the first two years of the bachelors study in the following major subjects: Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. The VIT portion of the curricula are designed to include a strong background in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and communication skills along with competencies in appropriate areas of engineering. They are also designed to enable smooth transfer of credits from VIT to one of the partner universities in the USA, UK and Australia. Depending upon the partner university where the students transfer to, the second half of the studies may include mandatory co-op work in industry.
