NOTE: For the current and revised B.Tech. courses in Urban Engineering there is no change with regards to addition of courses. i.e. students will attend to the new curriculum from 2005 as per central course mapping available in the department.  This final year programme is currently offered part time only and will be put on full time mode with a minimum of 8 students attending.  Students registering from 2005, will be registered into the revised curriculum for B.Tech. Urban Engineering or the new curriculum for B.Tech. in Water Engineering only but have the exit options as sketched out above.  The B.Tech. in Urban Engineering was fully accredited (CTP) in 2003 and has experienced rather strategic changes than content changes to accommodate a B.Tech. in Water Engineering (refer to curriculum below).
