Incoming students will be invited to an induction program before the start of the program to help them transition from school to college. There will be fun activities to help the students bond with their seniors, Batch mates and programming familiarization sessions to gear them up for some coding.
Expectation from Students
IIIT-D takes academics very seriously and expects all its students to do so. Each semester a student normally does about 5 courses, and each course has a workload of about 10 hrs/week. Hence a student should be ready to work hard – that indeed is the only way to learn.
