International Engineering Degree: The key highlight of this course is the fact that the students complete their 4 year engineering course and graduate with an international engineering degree from some of the top universities in the world.
International Placements: Students on successful completion of the course, participate in the placement activities of the university. The annual salary package upon graduation is between $55,000 and $85,000.
Face to Face Interactions with Partner University Delegates: Delegates from the partner universities visit Manipal twice a year to address the ICAS students and advise them on the various options available to them. Parents and students have one on once sessions with these delegates, thus providing them a chance to clear out any questions that they may have.
Global Education Standards: Keeping in line with the curriculum and pattern that is used in international universities, ICAS provides its students up to date and relevant syllabi thus ensuring a high standard of quality education.
Financial Benefits: Since the first two years of the course are conducted in India, there is a large amount that is saved. Students are able to save up to 40% of the total fee that they would ordinarily spend if they were to pursue an engineering course wherein all the 4 years were spent abroad.
Strong Foundation: Unlike regular engineering courses in India, where the specialization is chosen from the very beginning, the ICAS program is structured in a manner such that the first two years are a foundation program for students which helps familiarise them with the cultural and academic differences between India and abroad. By the end of these two years, the students are not only better equipped, but are better oriented and ready for the international system that focuses on clarity of concepts rather than course delivery.
Support in Documentation Process: Since this course is based on a credit transfer system, the foreign university and ICAS provide assistance to the students in terms of all the documentation that is required to transfer to these foreign universities.
