Proposed Curriculum

Given the blended nature of this program, both LVPEI and IITH will be actively involved in the training of these students.

There will be a Bridging course to help students from different streams. The two years program will four semesters of training, with two semesters worth of coursework and two semesters worth of research projects.

This is a regular M.Tech Program (Offline) and the lectures will be given in IITH.

In the coursework,

      • Training related to ophthalmic care and vision science will be taught by LVPEI

      • Training related to engineering and technology will be taught by IITH.
