Bringing a unique interdisciplinary specialisation, IIT Delhi introduces BTech in Engineering and Computational Mechanics program on 23rd September 2020 and will be accepting the first batch’s applications from candidates who have successfully cleared the JEE Advanced 2020. The undergraduate degree program will be administered by the Department of Applied Mechanics of the Institute and will begin its first academic session from 2020.
As per an official statement by IIT Delhi, the aim of introducing BTech in Engineering and Computational Mechanics is to expose and familiarise students with the latest trends in computational techniques and experiments and provide a strong foundation in the fundamentals of engineering mechanics along with a knowledge of the tools required to address various areas including nanomechanics, biomechanics, constitutive modelling at multiple lengths and time scales, machine learning, artificial intelligence in mechanics and parallel processing for mechanics problems.
