Hi

A student is eligible to apply for change of discipline at the end of first year only, provided he/she satisfies the following criteria -

: CGPA for the General category students : greater than or equal to 7.50

: CGPA for SC/ST category students : greater than or equal to 6.50

: Earned credits at the end of the first academic session : greater than or equal to 44.

Change of the discipline will be permitted strictly in the order of merit as determined by their CGPA at the end of the first year subject to the limitation that the actual number of students in the third semester in the discipline to which the transfer is to be made, should not exceed the sanctioned strength and the strength of the discipline from which transfer is sought does not fall below 90% of the existing strength.

For a student with CGPA greater than or equal to 9.0, even if a vacancy does not exist, he/she will be permitted to change provided the strength in the discipline to which the change is being sought does not exceed by 5% of the approved strength.

A student with CGPA greater than or equal to 9.0 will be permitted to change discipline even if the strength of the discipline from which the change is being sought falls below 90% of the existing strength.

Stipulation of minimum credits and CGPA requirements will not be insisted upon for change of discipline to a branch in which a vacancy exists and the concerned student was eligible for admission to that discipline at the time of entry to IIT Delhi. However requirements of credits and CGPA will continue to apply in case of both General and SC/ST category students seeking change to a discipline to which the concerned student was not eligible for admission at the time of entry of IIT Delhi.

Subject to the above conditions, change over from one to the other undergraduate programme (viz., B.Tech., M.Tech. integrated 5 years and M.Tech. dual degree 5 years) is permissible.

 

Although the minimum criteria given is 7.5 but only about 25-30 top students from the institutes get to change the branch. In previous years too, atmost 2 students from civil department gt to change their branch.
