Bachelor’s Degree Programmes


The bachelor’s degree programmes at MIIT have been designed keeping in mind the matriculation system of school education in Myanmar. Students in Myanmar complete the Matriculation Examination in Standard X (also known as Grade XI). Thus, the students would have attended ten years of schooling before seeking admission to a university. MIIT has designed the bachelor’s degree programmes in such a way that it accepts students who have matriculated, and enables them to graduate with a bachelor’s degree that is equivalent to those in the USA, India, Canada, etc.

The undergraduate programmes at MIIT have a broad-based structure, with a strong foundation in mathematics, sciences, and engineering sciences, followed by a rich collection of specific, discipline courses in their designated major. The program also offers courses from liberal studies, humanities, social sciences, and English language communication in order to cater to the overall development of the students. A wide collection of elective courses empowers a student to choose their specialisation based on individual career goals.

Input Qualifications

Students must have passed the Matriculation Examination (or the University Entrance Examination) of Myanmar with Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and English as subjects in the same year in which they are seeking admission to MIIT.

Specific Programmes

Salient Features

  • Based on the general student input level from the matriculation school system in Myanmar, the bachelor’s degree is for a duration of 5 years.
  • Bachelor’s degree programmes at MIIT follow the semester system, with courses having specific credits.
  • Each academic year is divided into 2 semesters of about 16 weeks and a special term of 4 weeks.
  • The academic year in MIIT starts with I Semester in the month of December in a given year. This is consistent with all the other universities in Myanmar.
  • I Semester in a specific academic year is followed by Special Term, which is then followed by II Semester.
  • Special Term is primarily used to offer courses from liberal studies, humanities, and social sciences, as well as scope for some independent, short-term, laboratory work.
  • The degree programmes are broad-based in the sense that the courses in the first four semesters of both the disciplines – CSE and ECE – are common and lay a strong foundation in mathematics, sciences, engineering sciences, technical arts, and English language communication.
  • Even allowing for the additional credits that a student will be enrolling for in a typical programme of 5 years, students at MIIT are required to do about 215-220 credits in an undergraduate programme. Students enrolled in these degree programmes will typically be doing far more credits than their counterparts in other universities.
  • Thus, to acknowledge the breadth and depth of the curriculum, as well as the significantly more credits required to graduate, MIIT offers the “Honours” degree for all its students.
  • MIIT emphasises outcome-based education and all courses are designed and conducted to be outcome-based.
  • MIIT also attaches significant importance to university-industry linkages. The courses conducted over the various semesters are designed based on inputs from the industry. The Capstone Project, undertaken towards the end of the programme, is a structured course that can be done by the students in a specific company or a research lab.
