Academic and business courses are the first part of a three-course curriculum that will be launched at IIT-M-I on Tuesday.
The university will be giving a series of lectures on the course starting on Tuesday morning.
The lecture series will start at 9 am and will be followed by a lunchtime presentation.
IIT officials said the university was looking for students who are interested in a different academic direction to what was offered at IitM-III, which was a full-time course for students, faculty and staff.
The institute will also provide a separate academic website to serve as an outlet for students and staff to share their academic pursuits, as well as information on courses offered by the institute, the university said in a statement.
It will be a part of the new academic portal, it added.
The institute is also aiming to introduce a new, free online course called “A New Start.”
