New Delhi: Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) New Delhi has launched an undergraduate programme — B Tech in Engineering and Computational Mechanics. The course will be run by the Department of Applied Mechanics, from the academic session 2020-21.
“The graduates of this programme are likely to find the best technology jobs in core engineering and will also be very apt candidates for higher studies like Masters and PhD in IIT Delhi as well as other leading national and international educational institutions,” India Today quoted Prof. Sanjeev Sanghi, HoD, Applied Mechanics, as saying.
“Design, analysis, and research jobs in sectors such as defence, aerospace, automotive, shipping, bio-mechanics and bio-medical devices, off-shore structures, etc. will be open to students doing this programme, which has been designed based on consultation with industry,” Prof Sanghi added.
The course will enable students to analyze complex inter-disciplinary phenomena relevant to problems in industry and cutting-edge research through experimentation, analysis and computation. It will also provide exposure to students to recent trends in computational techniques and experiments.
Under the programme, students will be exposed to basic fundamentals of all aspects of mechanics including classical aspects like theoretical and experimental mechanics, and also the latest in computational techniques including Finite Element Method (FEM) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
