The 4-year B.Tech. programme is spread over 8 semesters. Students have to successfully earn 243 credits for the B.Tech. degree. The Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) for the students in the B.Tech. programme has been in vogue at SASTRA University from the academic year 2008-09. This system gives students the opportunity to select from a portfolio of courses which are designated under three different heads. Every student mandatorily has to register for the core courses (60%) and the remaining courses are offered as department electives (30%) and open electives (10%). The department electives provide choice to the students to pursue on specific areas of interest in the chosen engineering discipline. The open electives provide the interdisciplinary flavour with a view to provide an overall perspective to engineering study. Open elective course range from management courses like Finance for Engineers, Marketing Research to unique courses like Vedic Mathematics, Entrepreneurship, etc. The students also have the opportunity to finish their B.Tech. course work in 3.5 years through an accelerated course registration system (ACRS) resulting in the entire 8th semester for meaningful internship in premier research labs, universities and companies in both India and abroad. This unique opportunity has resulted in SASTRA being able to send the maximum number of students under the Indian Academy of Sciences (IAS) fellowships for the last two consecutive years.

The 5-Year integrated M.Tech. degree programmes are designed with an intention to provide quality workforce to research and teaching institutions. The students will be with the regular B.Tech. students of the parent discipline till the end of 7th semester and branches to enrol for PG level courses in the 8th & 9th semesters with the 10th semester exclusively for project work.
