IITM instituted the Interdisciplinary Dual Degree programme in 2018 to keep up with the growing demands of technology and the industry. With the IDDD, students can master the newest areas and trends in tech by getting a combined Bachelor's degree and Master's degree. 

Any student with a CGPA of 8 or above at the beginning of the fifth semester can apply. Some IDDD programs include:

  • Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology
  • Complex Systems and Dynamics
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Computational Engineering
  • Atmospheric and Climate Sciences
  • Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Data Science
  • Electric Vehicles
  • Energy Systems
  • Robotics
  • Quantum Science and Technology
  • Quantitative Finance
  • Public Policy
  • Tech MBA (a CGPA of 7.5 or above is considered for this)

While students from BTech and Dual Degree programs can apply for IDDD, t is to be noted that their BTech degree remains their parent discipline, and their MTech will be in an interdisciplinary area.
