IIT Hyderabad to launch new courses on Minor in Design, Engineering Mathematics
The Indian Institute of Technology, (IIT) Hyderabad will launch two new B. Tech courses on Minor in Design and Engineering Mathematics from the academic year 2017-18. These courses are being introduced following the interest from students as well as recruiters who are increasingly looking for these skills.
Commenting about the launch of two new courses, Prof. U.B. Desai, Director of IIT Hyderabad said, “Multi-disciplinary areas are constantly emerging not just within the academic world but also within the industry. These areas require new ways of thinking and new skills. These new courses aim to fulfill such emergent requirements.”
The Head of Department of Mathematics, IIT-Hyderabad, Prof. D. Sukumar said, “The B.Tech. (Engineering Mathematics) will enable students to pursue higher studies in Math, such as a Ph.D. in world class universities. It will also help students to take up Research and Development work in national as well as international laboratories. There are also many Industry and MNC jobs which require Math analytical skills. The intake for the course is 10 students.”
Students pursuing B. Tech. (Engineering Mathematics) in IIT-Hyderabad will be exposed from the first semester to the foundations and fundamentals required for higher mathematics. Students can tailor their course according to their orientation and specialisation of Mathematics through the fractal academic system. They will be trained to solve problems and project based learning from the preceding years, which will help students to see links between different areas of mathematics.
At present, Prof. Sukumar says other IITs to offer similar courses include IIT-Guwahati and IIT-Delhi who offer B.Tech Mathematics and Computing. There are also Integrated Dual Degrees offered by IIT Kanpur and IIT (BHU) Varanasi.
Similarly, speaking about the other new course that is B.Tech. (Minor in Design), Prof. Neelkantan, Assistant Professor, Department of Design, IIT Hyderabad said, “Creative thinking, lateral and non-linear thinking, innovative spirit, experiencing technology and entrepreneurial components – these are some of the highlights of design thinking. The advantage of the Minor in Design Course is not just about employability but also supporting the students to be creative thinkers and begin initiatives of their own.”
The intake will be between 15 and 20. These courses are meant to introduce a 'design-spine' within the larger engineering environment as visualised by Design Manifesto 2014. Design departments that are part of IITs have the advantage of collaborating across disciplines in sciences and engineering. The canvas of collaborative work is vast and exciting and potential for incubation is manifold.
The minor courses that will be offered include Creative Product Design, Principles of Animation and moving images, Digital Heritage, Visual Communication and digital imaging, Built-environment/ Urban space Design, Special Topics on Design, Introduction to Ergonomics and design, Word and image Immersion, Movement Art, Technology and Environmental installations and Performances.
Prof. Neelkantan further added that the course structure was oriented such that the students are encouraged right from the first semester itself to think independently, which crystallises in the independent projects they conceive. The lectures and courses are oriented such that they feed in and support the project work. The response to the existing courses has been amazing and the candidates experience tough competition to get admitted to the design program.

if the gate score is 35 general category in computer science can i get iit Hyderabad or iit dharwad college?
The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering is an examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering and science for admission into the Masters Program Sector Companies. GATE cut off is the minimum marks that you need to score to qualify the exam.

Sir I Have An Obc NCL Certificate Valid Till March 31st,2021.Is It Valid For All The 4 Jee Mains 2021 Attempts Or Should I Apply Only For The Feb,Mar Attempt As My Certificate Is Valid Only Till March 2021??
The obc ncl certificate should be valid for the year 2021-22, it shouldn't be valid for just one or two months. So i would advice you to get the obc ncl certificate issued as soon as possible. So you do not face any problems in the future. You can submit the current certificate right now but you need to make a new one so get that as soon as possible to be on a safer side.
