Indian Institute of Technology (IIIT) Delhi has launched a 4 year Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) course for the new academic year 2020-21. The one of its kind undergraduate programme focuses on Engineering and Computational Mechanics (ECM). It will be run by Department of Applied Mathematics. Qualifying candidates of JEE Advanced 2020, who will opt for IIT Delhi, can opt for this course. The newly introduced 4-year B.Tech course shall only be available for candidates who appear for the JEE Advanced entrance examination.
Head of Department of Applied Mechanics, Prof. Sanjeev Sanghi, explained that this is one of the best job course for the students which will provide best job opportunities. He also explained that the course is also apt in candidates who look forward to higher studies like Master’s and PhD in IIT Delhi and various prestigious international institutions on a global level. This is because the course enables students to understand complex interdisciplinary processes relating to problems faced by the industry. It also paves the way for cutting-edge research through experimentation, computation and analysis.
B.Tech in Engineering and Computational Mechanics shall provide depth in addressing the fundamental questions present at the core of engineering. Students are given the exposure to the recent trends in computational experiments and techniques. This undergraduate course also aims at providing a strong knowledge of fundamentals of engineering mechanics and teaches various tools to address different areas of the industry. These areas include Biomechanics, Nanomechanics, Parallel processing for Mechanics Problems, Artificial Intelligence in Mechanics, Constitutive Modelling at Multiple Length and Time Scales and many more.
The B.Tech course introduced by IIIT-Delhi provides students exposure to the various fundamental aspects of mechanics including conventional aspects like experimental and theoretical mechanics. The course also sheds light in various newly-developed computational techniques like the Finite Element Method (FEM) as well as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
Prof. Sanghi further stated the job opportunities provided to students after opting for this undergraduate course. Career opportunities related to design, analysis and research become available to students. Moreover, the scope for work can shall be available is diverse industries including defence, aerospace, automotive, bio-mechanics and bio-medical devices, shipping, off-shore structures and so on. Students must bear in mind that the undergraduate programme has been designed in consultation with various industries. Students qualifying the JEE Advanced 2020 entrance examination are eligible for this course and shall be given an extra choice from the academic year 2020-21.
