Examples of Few Major-Minor Options
Major in Electronics and Communication with a Minor in Economics
Integration of humanities and social sciences into all professional programs will enhance the 'professional personality' of students. A combination embedded with Electronics and Communication and Economics provides not only discipline centered but problem-centered education in order to actively engage the students in addressing and analyzing the most pressing problems faced by the country and the world. It helps an engineer to comprehend the application of economics in business and profit driven market. As an engineer, it is important to be cost efficient for the technology to be adopted in the market.

Major in Computer Science with a Minor in Mathematics
Integration of knowledge from various disciplines like Engineering and Natural Sciences and conversion of learning into innovations are some of the important pillars of embedded education for the future. A major in Computer Science with a Minor in Mathematics will arm students with intellectual tools to understand subjects combining both the worlds like computational mathematics, various mathematical aspects of algorithm design and analysis and theory of computing.

Major in Civil Engineering with a Minor in Computer Science and Engineering
Current developments in technology are rapidly and continuously driving local, national and global changes, giving us a progressively more integrated, complex and unpredictable world to live in. This well-rounded educational experience helps civil engineers in planning, designing, constructing and maintaining facilities which are essential elements of modern-day life such as highways, dams, etc. Such an opportunity for exploration provides students the chance to pursue a range of intellectual interests resulting in greater professional success and deeper personal satisfaction.

Major in Physics with a Minor in Mathematics
This is a very attractive combination for a student planning to pursue research in theoretical physics. This combination provides a deeper understanding of the use of mathematics in physics.

Major in Physics with a Minor in Chemistry
This is a very useful combination for various interdisciplinary studies, including study of Biological systems, advanced semiconductor materials, and for research in nanotechnology.

Major in Physics with a Minor in Economics
This combination equips a student to pursue further studies or a career in quantitative finance. The main advantage of this integration is that it combines the physicists training of making quantitative models of complex systems with an understanding of economics.

Mathematics with minor in Economics
The subject of Economics enables us to understand how our society functions, and to plan the use of our resources. Economics relies heavily on Mathematics for creating working models, computing consequences, and increasing analytic rigour. This combination offers exceptional employability in the world of business and finance, as well as in research and development.

Mathematics with specialization in Mathematical Finance
The world of modern finance is heavily dependent on the modeling of the risk associated with various contracts, both for the purpose of pricing these contracts and for insuring against various forms of risk. The modeling requires advanced mathematics, especially drawing upon differential equations, probability, and computational techniques. This specialization offers an entrance to exciting careers in investment banks and insurance companies, as well as in academia.

Mathematics with specialization in Image Processing
Digital images underlie much of today's technology - from cancer detection and exploring oil reserves to robotics and animation. The techniques acquired here are also applied to extract information in other contexts, such as bio-informatics. Graduates with this specialization can pursue higher studies in these areas or move to a rewarding career in industry.

Mathematics Honors
An Honors degree is acquired by studying selected advanced courses and maintaining an exceptional academic record. Talented and well-trained mathematics graduates are in short supply and are eagerly sought by the best universities of the world. An Honors degree opens the door to an exciting life of teaching and research.
