Seats are reserved for Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), Other Backward Castes (OBC) belonging to Non-Creamy Layer (NCL) and Physically Disabled (PD) candidates, as per Government of India rules. The B.Tech Programmes at IIST include B.Tech in Avionics, Physical Sciences and Aerospace Engineering.
B.Tech in Avionics covers the topics covered in typical Electronics and Communications programmes. In addition, the course provides exposure to Advanced Electronics in digital and communication, control systems and computer systems used in aerospace systems. B.Tech Avionics Degree holders can later specialize in areas like DSP, RF & Communication, Antenna, Power electronics, micro electronics, control system etc.
B.Tech Physical Sciences is oriented towards application of basic sciences in Space Science, Space Technology and Space Application. The programme lays a strong foundation in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and gives exposure to important applications of space technology such as Remote Sensing and GIS, Astronomy and Astrophysics, and Earth System Sciences. Those with B.Tech Degree in Physical Science can later specialize in areas like Atmospheric and Ocean sciences, Solid Earth Science, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Remote Sensing & GIS, and Chemical Systems. The curriculum will have the best blend of Basic Science and Engineering.
B.Tech in Aerospace Engineering is similar to programmes of the same title available in many reputed Institutions in India and abroad. The programme in IIST is oriented towards the needs of space technology, and has significant overlap with Mechanical Engineering including Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Science and Space Dynamics. Those with B.Tech Degree in Aerospace Engineering can further specialize in Flight Mechanics, Aerodynamics, Thermal and Propulsion, Structure and Design, and Manufacturing Science.
The complete cost of education at IIST for all the students is borne by the Department of Space through an assistanceship package which includes the statutory semester fees, student amenity fees, hostel charges including dining, establishment charges and medical cover. Additionally each student gets a book allowance of Rs 3000/- per semester
