About the B. Tech. Programme

Over the years most of the undergraduate engineering programmes have become broad-based and have not been able to address the emerging interdisplinary areas. This is a lacuna we wish to address in this programme. The emphasis will be on providing a strong grounding in the fundamentals of engineering mechanics along with the tools to address the needs of emerging areas such as biomechanics, nanomechanics, constitutive modeling at multiple length and time scales, parallel processing, machine learning, artificial intelligence in mecshanics etc. The primary goal will be to cultivate in the young minds the art and science of Engineering Mechanics to analyze complex interdisciplinary phenomena relevant to problems in industry and cutting edge research through experimentation, analysis and computation. A strong grounding in engineering fundamentals will enable students to appreciate emerging trends and equip them with the tools to spearhead new areas of research.

Unique Features of the Programme

  • Focus on basic as well as the emerging areas of mechanics such as bio-mechanics, nano-mechanics, multi-scale and multi-physics modelling.
  • Exposing students to recent trends in computational techniques (FEM, CFD, parallel processing), high performance computing, machine learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI) etc.
  • Exposing students to fundamental and latest techniques in experiments and its importance for model validation.

      Objective of the Programme

      Cultivate young minds to analyse complex interdisciplinary phenomena and venture into cutting edge research through experimentation, analysis and computation.

      Annual Intake

      40 students through JEE Advanced

      Degree Awarded

      B. Tech in Engineering and Computational Mechanics at Department of Applied Mechanics.

      Programme Requirements

      The student will be required to register for 154 credits (graded) and 11 non graded credits during the 4 years of the programme. (One semester course has 1 credit associated with it for each hour of lecture, each hour of tutorial or every two hours of practical work per week). Under the non-graded units, 3 units are set out for design/ practical experience, these units by students of this programme will be earned by doing internship after 2nd year and 3rd year during summer vacation. Internship after 3rd year will be mandatory. Students doing internship after 2nd and 3rd year will earn 3 units if he spends 50 days each summer

      Course Curriculum

      Following is the classified list of core (or compulsory) and elective courses of the programme. The lecture, tutorial and practical (L-T-P) hours per week and the credits corresponding to each course are also given.
