The programme comprises a mix of theory and laboratory courses that will be taught by IIT-Madras faculty and experts in the industry. As part of the courses, students will be provided with recorded video lectures, reading materials, weekly assessments, tutorials and interactive doubt-clearing sessions, all of which can be done online. The laboratory courses require the students to be mandatorily present in-person at IIT- Madras for about two weeks every semester.

Candidates can get a certificate and diploma if they opt for early exit from the programme.
Launching the programme, Union education minister Dharmendra Pradhan said the programme would create a benchmark for institutions and industry.

The BS in electronic systems programme is open to anyone interested in electronic systems, irrespective of age, with the only eligibility criteria being that the candidate should have studied mathematics and physics as part of their Class XII.

Admission to the programme is possible through an in-built 4-week qualifier process. Candidates will be given access to four weeks of content taught by IIT-Madras faculty. The qualifier exam will be based on this content alone.

Students, who are in Class XII in 2023, can apply and secure admission and join the programme after they successfully clear Class XII. Students pursuing any other academic programme currently (as permitted under current UGC regulations) or working professionals can also apply and upskill themselves in this area.

Further details about the programme can be obtained from the course website
