National Institute of Technology - Tiruchi (NIT-T) has deferred its plan to offer M.Sc. Mathematics programme. In all probability, the programme will be offered from 2020 and not from next academic year as planned earlier.

The start of the programme has been pushed back since the seat matrix had to be sent in time for conduct of JAM (Joint Admission Test for M.Sc.) 2019 based on which the NIT-T admits students.

The NIT-T admits students to M.Sc. programmes in Physics, Chemistry and Computer Science based on JAM score.

The M.Sc. Mathematics programme was approved in principle by the Senate of NIT-T. Also, the institution has adequate faculty strength to offer the PG programme. The Mathematics Department will shortly be preparing a detailed proposal for offering M.Sc. programme, NIT-T Director Mini Shaji Thomas said.

Likewise, the Humanities Department is expected to come up with a proposal for starting PG programme in English Literature. The matter has to be discussed in the Board of Studies for approval of content. The proposal will then be discussed in the Senate for approval. The approval of any new programme will hinge on funding, recruitment of faculties, establishment of laboratories, for increasing accommodation capacity in hotels, and offering scholarships, she said.

At present, the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences offers nine courses: basic course in communicative English, communicative English, professional communication, corporate communication, business communication, human psychology and organisational behaviour, entrepreneurship development, industrial economics and management, and personnel management and labour laws.

New faculties for Humanities Department will be appointed in the next round of recruitment, she said.

So far, the NIT-Rourkela has been the only NIT to offer an M.A. programme in Development Studies through the Department of Humanities and Social Science.

The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences in IIT Madras offers five-year integrated M.A. programmes in Development Studies and English Studies. The students are chosen based on their performance in HSEE (Humanities and Social Sciences Entrance Examination) conducted by IIT Madras every year.
