Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur (IIT Jodhpur) is introducing a unique BTech programme in Civil and Infrastructure engineering. The curriculum of Civil and Infrastructure will introduce students to a wide variety of fields in advanced Civil engineering such as infrastructure planning and designing, a good knowledge of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Smart materials and sensors, and security of infrastructure against physical and digital threats.
With this one-of-its-kind Civil engineering programme, IIT Jodhpur envisions building a new class of engineers who have:
A strong foundation in the analytical, experimental, and computational methods to study various aspects of civil and infrastructure systems
A thorough understanding of green and sustainable materials, practices, and principles to design resilient infrastructure systems
An ability to understand real-world problems related to air and water pollution, solid waste management, ecological and environmental degradation, and their monitoring and remediation.
An ability to monitor and evaluate the health of old structures and renovating to bring sustainability
An ability to use transformative technologies and multidisciplinary knowledge in planning, design, execution, and continuous monitoring of infrastructures
A Bachelor’s in Civil and Infrastructure Engineering will open several career paths not only in conventional areas but also in interdisciplinary areas.
Notable mentions include Smart and Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Energy, Environment, Transportation, etc.), Digital twins and asset management, and Application of AI and ML, IoT, and Cyber-Physical Systems in built-in infrastructure, among others.
Civil and Infrastructure program of IIT Jodhpur:
With a vision to cater to future needs, the Civil and Infrastructure program of IIT Jodhpur includes unique courses involving Digital Twin and Asset Management, Design, and Simulation.
The programme also offers new courses related to large-scale integrated infrastructures such as Telecom and IT, Renewable and Non-renewable Energy, Railway, Airport, and Seaport design.
On the contrary to the conventional Civil Engineering program, this unique programme of IIT Jodhpur focuses on Engineering design, product development, training in intellectual property and entrepreneurship.
The Institute encourages its students to undertake multidisciplinary projects in smart infrastructure and sustainable development with this programme.
