UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM

A new approach to undergraduate engineering education

Our undergraduate program has been designed to create technology leaders who will create an impact in the world. Our cutting-edge programs will be offered in a truly integrated, experiential and project-based environment. Our graduates will be well prepared with not only the necessary technical depth and engineering skills but also with the cross-disciplinary knowledge including humanities, arts, human and social sciences, design thinking, an entrepreneurial mindset, and a global perspective. The programs will be offered in Aug 2021. We will do this by -

Interdisciplinary Engineering Education

This approach will dismantle the walls between different engineering disciplines and lead to students being natural problem solvers with an ability to connect the dots.

Integrating Liberal Arts, Design and Entrepreneurship

The core curriculum will not just be limited to engineering and sciences, but bring in exposure to liberal arts, entrepreneurship and design which will enable humane and empathetic outcomes through technology.

Hands-on Pedagogy and blended learning

Students will be immersed in experiential learning from day one and learn by creating. By incorporating flipped classroom techniques, online learning mechanisms and industry capstone projects, students will become more context-aware and develop critical problem-solving abilities.

Self and Leadership

We believe that to be a leader in society we have to first know ourselves. Our leadership curriculum focuses on self development and continuous self improvement. Developing skills like critical thinking, creativity and collaboration is at the heart of our curriculum.

MAJORS

Plaksha proposes to offer four degrees with a focus on interdisciplinary engineering concentrations when it opens in 2021. Students will graduate with a B.Tech degree in either of the 4 streams.

Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence

This program will integrate elements of computer science with elements of machine learning, artificial intelligence and neuro-linguistic programming, as well as natural intelligence and human-computer interfaces.

Robotics and Cyber Physical Systems

This program will integrate elements of electrical engineering with elements of robotics, autonomous systems, internet of things

Biological Systems Engineering

This program will combine quantitative & system biology and computation, fundamentals of modeling and analysis of large data sets (e.g. genomics, images) and sensors.

Data Science, Business and Economics

In this program data science core will be interwoven with business, and economics. Students can go on to pursue areas like digital transformation, financial engineering and policy and development
