1. The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi launched the undergraduate programme Engineering and Computational Mechanics in BTech. 2. It will be run by the Department of Applied Mechanics from the academic session 2020-21. 3. The BTech in engineering and computational mechanics aims to expose students to recent trends in computational techniques and experiments, provide a strong grounding in the fundamentals of engineering mechanics. 4. The students who opt for this course will be able to analyse complex interdisciplinary phenomena relevant to problems in industry and cutting edge research through experimentation, analysis and computation. 5. 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.
