JNTU-Hyderabad to offer dual-degree


Gone are the days when students had to pursue only one undergraduate course at a time. Now, students can enrol and get two degrees at once provided they make a cut in both the courses. Doing away with the rigid admission system, Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU)-Hyderabad will be offering a dual-degree option from the next academic year. This means students will be allowed to take admission into two different undergraduate courses simultaneously.Starting academic year 2022-23, students can enrol for the BTech programme along with the BBA programme at the same time. Accordingly, the university will be commencing the BBA course. Students will be at liberty to choose the BBA course offered by the JNTU-Hyderabad or any other university. However, the programme has to be pursued in the online mode only while the BTech in the offline mode.The JNTU-Hyderabad took this major decision during its joint Boards of Studies meetings recently conducted to revise the UG and PG syllabi. As many as 13 Boards of Studies participated in the meetings and revised the syllabi for 25 UG and 41 PG programmes as per the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) model curriculum. The meetings saw the participation of experts from diverse fields including professors from the Indian Institutes of Technology and National Institutes of Technology and industry experts from across the country.The move by the varsity comes as the University Grants Commission had permitted the universities to offer dual-degree programmes simultaneously at undergraduate and postgraduate levels from this year. As several engineering students prefer to join MBA after completing their BTech, the university has decided to offer the BBA course.
