Interestingly, the number of students enrolled is higher than in the years before the pandemic: 8,971 in 2018-19, 9,793 in 2019-20 and 10,900 in 2020-21.
However, there has been a decline in the total number of degrees awarded this year. In the 2021-22 session, a total of 2100 qualifications were awarded, which is a decrease compared to the 2117 in the 2020-21 academic year.
Not just overall, but there has also been a decline in the number of undergraduates who passed their program this year. The number of PG degrees awarded dropped to 909 this year from 986 in 2020-21. However, the number of doctoral degrees awarded has increased to 307 this year from 288 last year, and the number of doctoral degrees awarded has also increased from 843 to 884 this year.
“This year, PhD degree (including joint) would be awarded to more than 300 graduates, other postgraduate degrees (MS(R), MTech, MDes, MBA, PG-DIIT and Joint PG Diploma) and the amount of degree and UG diploma at close to nine hundred each. These figures reflect our continued expansion,” the institute said.

In undergraduate courses, 253 applications were admitted, compared with 973 male students. . PhD programs have 215 female incoming students and 406 male candidates.
In addition, the institute has launched five new programs at UG and PF levels which include Degree in Design (BDes), MS(R) in Machine Intelligence and Data Science (MINDS), MS(R) in Security in transport and injury prevention, MTech in Biomolecular and Bioprocess Engineering, and MTech in Machine Intelligence and Data Science (MINDS).
