The industry-focused 60-credit, 12-module curriculum offers flexible graduation timelines (one to three years), IIT Kanpur alumni status, access to IIT Kanpur internship cell, alumni network and incubation cell.
Credits earned during the programs may be transferred to an advanced degree (regular Mtech or PhD) at IIT Kanpur by participants selected to pursue the advanced degree, subject to Senate approval.
Each of these eMaster programs are offered in a hybrid delivery mechanism, where participants learn online in an experiential format from the distinguished faculty of IIT Kanpur via the digital delivery platform ipearl.ai.
