IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) Hyderabad recently introduced India’s first BTech programme in Computational Engineering. All students graduating in BTech Computational Engineering will receive interdisciplinary training.
This will help them gain expertise in state-of-the art numerical methods and algorithms, modelling and simulation of engineering systems and processes, high-performance computing, process control and optimization, data analytics, and machine learning.
BTech in Computational Engineering: Course structure
This is a four-year interdisciplinary undergraduate programme which is equally divided into eight semesters of six months each.
During the first five semesters, all students will be taught at length on various subjects. These include: mathematical methods, numerical techniques, the development of mathematical models, computer simulations, optimization, high-performance computing, data analytics, and machine learning.
In the last three semesters, students will have the option of choosing from a variety of electives in order to do more specialised learning.
These electives will include various subjects such as advanced manufacturing, structural design, process engineering, materials design, chip design and biomedical engineering.
BTech in Computational Engineering: Eligibility
Just like any other programme in IIT Hyderabad, admission in BTech in Computational Engineering is also done on the basis of IIT-JEE (Joint Entrance Exam) Advanced scores. Apart from this, candidates also need to clear class 12 9or equivalent) from any of the recognised state or central boards.
