Engineering design’s impact on core

Does engineering design dual degree program( B tech+ MTech) have a negative impact on core. It covers a vast number of topics so I would like to know if there can be some compromise on the basic core topics by taking this course.

Thank you

ED focuses on the base concepts of engineering so that students can pick and choose what they want to study and master, in their later years.

The curriculum is designed for students to learn concepts that help them build products. Some courses necessary to do this, are also included, even if they’re offered by other departments, like Signals in Systems in the second semester (offered by EE).

If you look at other disciplines like EE or ME, you’ll only work on a very niche field later on, that might not include all the concepts that you studied in your curriculum.

ED thus aims to give you a broader flavor in bachelors, for you to decide what you want to work on later.

That’s why ED students work in Automotive companies, Biomedical Device makers, Gaming companies, and of course all non-core jobs.

So no, it doesn’t reduce rigor but instead lays a solid foundation - especially great for people who would want to keep more bases open and explore more options in IITM.
