A student’s journey

You will develop academic depth as well as diverse skill sets and mindset, across four years.

Year 1

Foundational Year

You will begin your journey at Plaksha with fundamental courses in Quantitative Engineering Analysis, Coding in Context, Basic Sciences and Liberal Arts to develop foundational technical, social and humanistic understanding that will be core to every Plakshan.

Year 2

Introduction to Major

After getting a flavour of the different majors in the first year, you can opt for the major of your choice in Year 2. Later in the year, you will start to take introductory courses specific to your major and the interdisciplinary areas of your interest.

Year 3

Advanced Discipline & Electives

In the third year, you will focus on building depth of expertise in your major. You will start taking courses in advanced courses, technical curricular tracks and electives of your choice. You will find yourself connecting the dots through an eclectic mix of classes at the intersection of technology, sciences and liberal arts.

Year 4

Capstone & Projects

In your final year you will get the opportunity to combine your knowledge, passion and skills through your capstone and projects - will involve you working in interdisciplinary teams on a real-world problem. You will also continue to take advanced electives in areas related or unrelated to your major.

Experiential Learning

Integrated learning experience across 4 years. You will work on authentic, real world projects through industry and community engagement or by research with faculty.
By having access to state-of-the-art makerspaces and coding cafes and incorporating them in the curriculum, students will become more context-aware, develop critical thinking abilities, and learn by creating. This will help foster a tinkering and problem solving mindset, immersing students in experiential learning from day one. These areas will be open to students to explore, create, prototype and design, while also housing equipment and technologies like 3D printers, sensors, etc.
The core curriculum will not just be limited to engineering and sciences, but bring in exposure to entrepreneurship and design which will enable humane and empathetic outcomes through technology. Each student will undertake multiple different experiences to develop skills like finding opportunities, creating value, and embracing risks. Students will be mentored and supported by Plaksha founders and professionals from industry.
At Plaksha, learning and skill development do not stop in the classroom. Students will have the opportunity to create and immerse themselves in pursuing their academic and creative interests. Student led clubs will be autonomous bodies that operate under the purview of the Office of Student Life. Being the founding batch, students will be encouraged to help establish a vibrant culture through clubs and societies on campus.
