IITan: God no! This is so not true! I am a GNIITian myself! It is a pure personal choice. In my own batch, there were a few engineers who were doing the GNIIT program along with their BE. See IITan, today the world requires a well prepared professional ready to take on work from day one which is why dual qualification becomes a need. Moreover, who says that IT is meant only for engineering students? Trust me, what matters is the IT qualification.
