(Total 12 Modules)
₹45,000 per module
To be paid at the beginning of every quarter
₹15,000 per quarter
*For every additional quarter, fees of Rs 15,000 will be applicable.
Candidates opting to complete the program in 5 quarters need to pay an additional fee of ₹15,000
Candidates opting to complete the program in 11 quarters need to pay an additional fee of ₹1,05,000
All other fees remain the same.

The program offers flexibility in choosing 0-3 modules in each quarter. Typically, students take 4 core modules and 8 elective modules over 4-12 quarters i.e. 1 - 3 years.
There are three approaches to sequence to modules that best suit your needs and availability :
For applicants who are unable to take out the necessary number of hours per week however, we encourage them to take fewer modules per quarter, as illustrated in the following example:
Please note, the final template can be a mixture of above approaches, and may have 0-3 modules per quarter. Typically, core modules are taken before the elective modules.
|Module 1||Wireless Communication||Sunday 12:00 noon|
|Module 2||Probability and Random Processes||Saturday 10:30 am|
|Module 3||Applied Linear Algebra for Wireless Communication||Saturday 9:00 am|
