Center for Interdisciplinary Programs has been created with a vision of fostering interdisciplinary studies across various disciplines at IIT Hyderabad. We @ IIT Hyderabad envision to create new paradigms in education integrating techniques, tools and science from multi and cross disciplinary expertise on IITH campus. The Center would be a cradle for ‘SEEDING’ new interdisciplinary Programs bringing together experts with common interests from various branches to address the ever-evolving needs of Science, Industry and humanity thus shaping up new courses and unique Programs that never existed before and train human resources for tomorrow. These teams of interdisciplinary nature would act as epicenters for brainstorming and writing new grants that would emerge into new Centers of Excellence of National Importance.
The Center will be a Virtual one managed by a Chair appointed by the Director, IIT Hyderabad. All the faculties who have an interdisciplinary student or offering a course to any interdisciplinary program will be the members of the Center. The Center will be setting up a Center Post Graduate Committee (CPGC) approved through the Dean Academics that overlooks all academic matters of the Center. The CPGC monitors all the processes related to admission, progress report and assessment of the PhD students and MTech students enrolled at the CIP. Each Program will have Coordinator(s) from various disciplines who will coordinate with various faculties and manage the curricula and projects.
