IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) Hyderabad recently introduced India’s first BTech program in Computer Engineering. Students graduating in Computational Engineering from BTech will receive interdisciplinary training that will help them gain experience in state-of-the-art numerical algorithms and methods, modeling and simulation of engineering systems and processes, high-performance computing, process control and optimization, analysis of data. and machine learning.
BTech in Computational Engineering – Course Structure
It is an interdisciplinary undergraduate program of four years equally divided into eight semesters of six months each. During the first five semesters, students will be taught extensively about mathematical methods, numerical techniques, the development of mathematical models, computer simulations, optimization, high performance computing, data analysis, and machine learning.
In the final three semesters, students will have the option to choose from a variety of electives for more specialized learning. Electives will include various subjects such as advanced manufacturing, structural design, process engineering, materials design, chip design, and biomedical engineering.
BTech in Computer Engineering – Eligibility Criteria
Just like all other BTech programs at IIT hyderabadadmission to BTech in Computational Engineering is also on the basis of advanced IIT-JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) scores and candidates must have passed class 12 (or equivalent) of a recognized state or central board.
BTech in Computational Engineering – Course Fees
Students belonging to General category, EWS and OBC are required to pay Rs 1 lakh per semester except for BTech 2022 batch. While SC/ST or PH category students are totally exempt from tuition fees. There are additional charges added to the tuition fees, such as welfare funds and room and board charges. There is no exemption from these additional charges for students belonging to the SC/ST or PH category.
BTech in Computational Engineering – Career Scope
BTech in Computational Engineering has various benefits and professional scope such as: expertise in numerical algorithms and methods, strong foundation in scientific computing, system design and simulation, proficiency in computing tools and techniques, and readiness for Industry 4.0, i.e., machine automation through cyber-physical systems and AI (Artificial Intelligence)
