IIT Jodhpur introduces BTech in Civil & Infrastructure Engineering

October 26, 2021
The Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur has introduced a BTech program in Civil and Infrastructure Engineering program leaping into the smart and digital infrastructure area.
 
The students of this program get opportunities to earn a specialization in either ‘Smart infrastructure’ or ‘Environmental engineering’ in addition to the regular BTech.
 
The curriculum of Civil and Infrastructure will familiarize students with 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.
 
In this one-of-its-kind civil engineering program, 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.
 
Alongside, students will have an understanding of green and sustainable materials, practices, and principles to design resilient infrastructure systems that will help them address real-world problems such as air and water pollution, solid waste management, ecological and environmental degradation, and their monitoring and remediation. The course will also help students gain expertise in maintaining older structures.
 
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.

Speaking about the uniqueness of this program, Dr Ranju Mohan, Head, Department of Civil and Infrastructure Engineering, IIT Jodhpur, said, “Unlike the manufacturing, automotive, and aerospace industries, civil and infrastructure industries have been slow in embracing the digital and transformative technologies. Application of artificial intelligence, cyber-physical systems, and digital twins will reduce cost and time, streamline construction, and reduce waste.”The students of this program get opportunities to earn a specialization in either ‘Smart infrastructure’ or ‘Environmental engineering’ in addition to the regular BTech.
