Flexible | Unconventional | Adaptable

Unlike the "traditional" universities, SR University offers a choice of majors and minors. Students can combine majors and minors in completely different fields such as Computer Science and UI/UX Design or Civil Engineering and Entrepreneurship. The structural flexibility at SRU is designed to match your intellectual curiosity.


Every undergraduate student @SRU can earn a minor degree by successfully earning 16 credits from a basket of courses prescribed for each Minor. This additional coursework is done from a discipline different to the student’s original discipline.


A Minor gives you the chance to study things that interest you on a personal level, even though those things may not relate to your Major. A Minor is a program you’ll love, has greater engagement and opens opportunities for interdisciplinary programs in Masters and also better placements.


Rules and Regulations

A Minor allows you to take advantage of the extensive offerings across the university. There are a few rules to keep in mind when pursuing a minor. Similar to majors, you must complete all courses for a minor at SRU, and must earn a minimum 5.0 GPA in all courses required for the minor.


Minors must be completed simultaneously with a major degree program. Also be aware that since the minor must be completed with a major, any outstanding minor requirements will prevent the awarding of the degree for your major. If you ultimately decide to graduate without the minor, he minor must be removed from your records before your degree can be processed.


Eligibility for Minors

All Programs offer Minors in their varied disciplines and will prescribe the set of courses necessary for earning a minor in that particular discipline. A student is eligible for UG Degree with a Minor, subject to the following:


  • S/he should have a CGPA of 7.0 or higher at the end of 4th semester to register for minor program and maintain a CGPA of 7.0 at the time of award of degree.

  • Successfully acquire a minimum of 16 additional credits by registering into courses offered by another department. However, his/her open electives can be counted for minor degree as well.

  • S/he must acquire the additional credits by overloading during a regular semester or summer semester.

  • If any of the courses listed under the minor option is a course listed under his/her curriculum as program core, then the student cannot opt for that minor, since all minor courses need to be earned as additional courses to his/her program curriculum.

  • If necessary, the student may use options like registering for the failed minor course again in a subsequent semester.

  • Students have to pay extra fee for all the courses registered for minor.

  • The grades obtained in the courses credited towards the minor award are not counted and shall have no influence on the GPA/ CGPA of the program, in which the student has registered.

  • In case, a student fails to meet the CGPA requirement or withdraws for degree with Minors at any point after registration, s/he will be dropped from the list of students eligible for degree with minor and they will receive B.Tech. degree only. However, the additional courses completed by them will be mentioned in their grade sheet.


In addition to the admission requirements, a minor must be selected outside of the major department. Minors that are made up exclusively of courses from a single department may not be earned by students majoring in that department. For example, if you are majoring in Business Administration, you would not be able to minor in Marketing, Finance or any of the other minors from the School of Business.


Credits Required and Overlaps Allowed

In order to earn a Minor, a student has to earn a minimum of 16 credits from a basket of courses prescribed for each Minor stream. Courses for the minor may overlap with your major requirements.


Advising

If you have any questions about the requirements to complete a minor you should consult the advisor in the department offering the minor.


Completion of a Minor

A minor must be awarded at the same time a bachelor’s degree is awarded. Minors will be posted on your transcript and you will receive a separate minor certificate for each minor program completed.


The final transcript will only show the basic CGPA corresponding to the minimum requirement for the degree. The Minors/Honors will be indicated by a separate CGPA. The additional courses taken will also find separate mention in the transcript.


If a student drops (or terminated) from the Minor/Honours program, the credits earned cannot be converted into program electives and will remain extra. These additional courses will find mention in the transcript but not in the degree certificate.


The different options of the degree certificate are as follows:


  • B.Tech (Hons.) in XYZ Engineering with a Minor in ABC (If a student pursues both Honours & Minor)

  • B.Tech in XYZ Engineering with Minor in ABC (If a student pursues a Minor)

  • B.Tech in XYZ Engineering with a Specialisation in UVW and a Minor in ABC (If a student pursues a specialization and a Minor)

  • B.Tech in XYZ Engineering with Minor in ABC and Minor in DEF (If a student pursues two Minors)
