IIT Jodhpur Adds New Courses to BTech in Civil Engineering and Infrastructure
The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Jodhpur said that the BTech program in Civil Engineering and Infrastructure offered by it will now offer courses involving digital twins and asset management, design and simulation and courses related to telecommunications and IT, renewable and non-renewable energies, railways, Airport and seaport design.
Unlike conventional civil engineering programs, IIT Jodhpur’s BTech program focuses on engineering design, product development, intellectual property training and entrepreneurship, the institute said.
“The Institute encourages its students to undertake multidisciplinary projects in smart infrastructure and sustainable development with this program,” he said.
JEE Advanced 2021 qualified students can join the 2nd batch of BTech In Civil And Infrastructure Engineering at IIT Jodhpur. The training started in 2020.
Students can also earn a specialization in “smart infrastructure” or “environmental engineering” in addition to regular BTech, informed IIT Jodhpur.
“The Civil and Infrastructure program will introduce students to a wide variety of advanced civil engineering fields such as infrastructure planning and design, good knowledge of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) , intelligent materials and sensors and safety. infrastructure against physical and digital threats, ”according to an official statement from the institute.
Students holding this BTech degree will have career opportunities beyond conventional fields – in multidisciplinary fields such as sustainable infrastructure engineering (energy, environment, transport, etc.), digital twins and asset management. , and the application of AI and ML, IoT and cyber-physics systems in integrated infrastructure, according to the institute.
“Unlike the manufacturing, automotive and aerospace industries, civil and infrastructure industries have been slow to embrace digital and transformative technologies. The application of artificial intelligence, cyber-physical systems and digital twins will reduce costs and time, streamline construction and reduce waste. Our program has a course structure that integrates and integrates conventional civil engineering with these advanced transformative technologies. In this way, we are creating next-generation civil engineers who can meet the needs of society from a multidisciplinary perspective, which is exactly what the current industry needs, ”said Professor Ranju Mohan, head of the department.
