Liberal education (“liberal ed”) is a mode of teaching any branch of knowledge; this mode is based on broad foundations and student choice of branch. It is the mode offered by IIT’s Centre for Liberal Education (CLE).
Liberal education means Freedom to Choose to the student after admission to IIT Bombay. This allows students to explore their interests before selecting their specialisation.
Open to already-admitted undergraduates at IIT Bombay, the CLE’s UG program, the LASE program, allows students to access any branch of knowledge at IIT Bombay after their first year.
At the end of the first year, undergraduates can attempt a branch change. Now they have one more option: switch to CLE’s LASE program and have the Freedom to Choose their program with the help of their faculty guide.
Students will graduate with a Bachelor of Science (BS) as per their choice of concentration:
BS Natural Sciences
BS Engineering Sciences
BS Social Sciences
BS Art & Design
