Should I do BSc in Programming and Data Science from IITM without any other offline college degree or not ... is it worth it?

It is definitely worth it! The IITM online BSc program is a unique attempt to make the academic qualities of IITM accessible to a wide variety of students through an online medium. The flexible nature of the course makes it an apt venture for all kinds of people, from high school students to students involved in another degree to even working professionals.

If you believe you can juggle an online degree with another degree program, definitely try it. The institute estimates that one must dedicate at least 10 hours a week to do well on the course. Furthermore, the multiple exit options also enable students to leave with their choice of certification, whether it be as a foundational course, a diploma or a bachelor’s degree, depending on the time they spend on the program.
