As against the two-year M.Tech program at IITs, the premier institutes are planning to execute M.Tech course for working professionals.

A number of IITs are unable to retain their MTech students as they quit the course after landing jobs in public sector undertakings. In this regard, the M Tech programme could have more students complete their Masters.

The move can help promote research work and increase revenue of IITs. IIT directors were seen discussing issues related to introducing executive MTech at the 155th meeting of IIT directors hosted by IIT-Kanpur last year in December.

They feel there is no harm having sponsored MTechs by industry and the course could be charged for the actual cost.

Curently, a number of IIMs and other B-schools already offer executive MBA programme for working professionals, but IIT's M.Tech course is the most cost-effective. Here's what the current M.Tech courses are offering.

Compressed into a one-year programme, the executive M.Tech programme at IITs will be charged as per market rates.

The final decision, however, is awaited.

IIT directors of Bombay, Hyderabad and Roorkee are working out the details of this project. Once they reach a conclusion, the proposal will be sent to the IIT council, chaired by the HRD minister, for final approval.
