UG Programmes

NRTI’s full-time residential undergraduate programmes provide students the opportunity to learn from global faculty, practitioners, experts, and academicians, offering interdisciplinary immersion with focus on surface transportation.

Through a values-based approach to academic learning, students will be equipped with both a solid grounding in their core field of study, as well as core values, such as, inclusive leadership, nation-building, empathy, and environmental consciousness.

The focus of the programmes is to prepare intellectuals grounded in practicality and equipped with 21st century skills — critical thinking, problem-solving, communication and collaboration.

To earn a Bachelor’s degree, each student completes the requisite minimum credits over the programme period of three years (in case of BBA and BSc) and four years (in case of B.Tech.) comprising three trimesters each. Students typically study four to five courses in every trimester, and spend time in their final year, experiencing a live industry project or preparing a thesis.

BBA Transportation Management

This is a specialized programme focused on management practices in the context of the transportation sector. The curriculum offers foundation courses aimed at broadening the understanding of the transport ecosystem and environmental sustainability, developing decision making process and enhancing soft skills. Specialised courses covers different aspects of management practices: finance, marketing and operations.

BSc Transportation Technology

Meant to prepare a cadre of transportation technologists and specialists, this programme focusses on technology and its application in the field of transportation. Students are also offered foundation courses in various fields including critical thinking and writing, design thinking, data analytics, environmental sustainability, fundamentals of business and economics to provide a broader perspective. Specialised courses focus on providing foundation in theories, methods and tools needed to provide solutions to the challenges faced in driving India’s innovation in intelligent transport system.
