The Indian Institute of Technology [IIT- Delhi] has launched the BTech in Engineering and Computational Mechanics Undergraduate program on Wednesday. From the academic session 2020-21, this UG course will be initiated in the institute and the Department of Applied Mechanics will run it. The BTech in Engineering and Computational Mechanics seeks to expose candidates to the current trends in computational techniques and experiments.
This course offers a stable grounding in the key concepts of engineering mechanics alongside the tools to cover some of the areas like nanomechanics, biomechanics, parallel processing for mechanics problems, constitutive modeling at Multiple Length and Time Scales, artificial intelligence in mechanics, and more. The candidates who prefer this BTech program will be able to analyze complicated interdisciplinary phenomena specific to problems in analysis, industry, and cutting edge research via experimentation and computation.
Prof Sanjeev Sanghi, HoD, Applied Mechanics said, ‘The graduates of this programme are likely to find the best technical jobs in core engineering and will also be very apt candidates for higher studies such as master’s and Ph.D. in IIT-Delhi as well as other leading national and international educational institutions.’ With this initiative of launching a new BTech program, IIT Delhi aims to bring more opportunities to the students to understand fundamental concepts.
Prof Sanghi further added, ‘Design, analysis and research jobs in sectors such as defense, aerospace, automotive, shipping, bio-mechanics, and bio-medical devices, off-shore structures, etc. will be open to students doing this program, which has been designed based on consultation with industry.’ IIT Delhi has geared up to conduct the IIT JEE Advanced entrance examination this year. The officials have scheduled to conduct this exam on 27th September 2020. About 160864 candidates have enrolled to take up the entrance exam.
It is considered as the lowest number in the past 3 years, as per the reports. In fact, more than 2.5 lakh candidates were eligible to register for the national-level entrance examination.
