Students also have the advantage of interacting with peers belonging to diverse fields. Flexibility of the course structure adds up to the advantages of the institute.

The system of assessment is based on continuous evaluation through tests, surprise quizzes, home assignments, laboratory work, industry projects, presentations etc.
Q3) What is different about the IIITM curriculum?
A) Some of the unique characteristics of IIITM are:
- Summer internship of 12 Weeks to have an extended interface with the industry.

- Emphasis on peer-to-peer learning and zeal to learn.
- Usage of Information Technology to attain maximum advantages in business processes.
Q4) Are there any financial aids available for the course?
A) The students receive full help in this regard. Some of the institutions that have come forward with loan facilities are Bank of India, State bank of India, Allahbad bank, Andhra bank etc.
Apart from loans, various scholarships are also available. Andhra Pradesh students are eligible for Pratibha Scholarships. The students pursuing IPG MTech or MTech get AICTE stipend if they clear the GATE examinations. The SC/ST candidates have their tuition fees exempted.
Q5) What is the criterion of MBA/MTech specialization in the Integrated Post Graduation Course?
A) Presently the Institute has no set rules in this regard. Students are free to choose MBA or MTech for post graduation according to their own will. This choice is made after the 3rd year. The Institute, however, may set down some criterion if the number of students to either of the course falls below expectations.
Q6) How is the evaluation done in IIITM?
A) IIITM follows the 10 point scale relative grading system. In each subject the students are given grades. The value of each of the grades are A: 10, A-ve: 9, B: 8, B-ve: 7, C: 6, C-ve: 5, D: 4, E: 0, F: Fail, I: Incomplete. The student getting F or I has to reappear in the examinations. Any student may opt to give an improvement in any of the examination, if he wishes. Grading is done based on continuous assessment consisting of minor examinations, major examination, assignments, quizzes, attendance etc.
Q7) What are SGPA and CGPA and how are they calculated?
A) SGPA stands for Semester Grade Point Average. It is the average performance on a 10 point scale system in one semester. Every subject a student opts in a semester has a credit assigned to it.
Semester grade-point averages are calculated as follows:
- Step A. Multiply the course credit by the grade value to obtain total points for each course.
- Step B. Add the total points for all courses.
- Step C. Add the total credit for all courses attempted
- Step D. Divide the total points earned by the total credit; i.e., Step B is divided by Step C
CGPA is the cumulative grade point average. This can be calculated similar to the SGPA by considering all the courses a student has completed from the time of admission.
Q8) What are credits?
A) Every course opted by a student, whether theory or practical, is weighted by means of credits. A high credit means a larger weight age and vice versa. These weights are used to calculate SGPA and CGPA.
Q9) Can I leave the Integrated Post Graduate Course after 4 years with a BTech degree?
A) No. The students can only get a dual degree at the end of the completion of the entire course.
Q10) What specialization would be offered in post graduation in the Integrated Post Graduation Course?
A) There is no separate specialization offered for the IPG post graduation. The specialization is considered in Information Technology (IT), for both MBA and MTech. The electives and the dissertation however are on the basis of interest of the students that specialize them to some domain.
Q11) What CGPA is expected out of the students?
A) The CGPA that the students get entirely depends on their capability and performance. In general it is expected that the CGPA be always above 7 to 7.5 so that you don’t have problems in the academic ground.
