IIT Bhubaneswar Launches 2 Programmes & Other Courses For Fall 2024; Check Details

Bhubaneswar: Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bhubaneswar has launched two new programmes and several new courses for the upcoming Fall 2024 session.

The new programmes, in line with emerging technology trends and industry needs, are — Interdisciplinary Blended-mode M.Tech degree in ‘Advanced Maintenance Technology’ for engineers working in the industry and M.Tech degree in ‘Semiconductor Technology and Chip Design’ for regular students.

Blended-mode M.Tech Degree in ‘Advanced Maintenance Technology’:

Timely maintenance of equipment and systems in industry is key to sustainability of operations, productivity and quality.

This new M.Tech programme aims to educate and train engineers working in industries that will help enhance sustainability and productivity of industries and increase industry-academia interaction, according to an IIT Bhubaneswar press release.

The interdisciplinary programme offers a mix of relevant and advanced courses from mechanical, civil, electrical, metallurgical and materials engineering, with a special focus on maintenance issues related to corrosion, welding, vibration, structures, and also development of digital twins for diagnosing failures.

Registration details are available at — https://webapps.iitbbs.ac.in/mtech_blended-app/.

This programme also includes study and application of ‘Chaos in dynamical systems’. One research group has discovered a chaotic attractor, which has been successfully tested in some industrial systems for failure detection. This attractor is proving vital for failure prediction/detection in dynamical systems.

M.Tech Degree in Semiconductor Technology and Chip Design:

The Semiconductor Mission (ISM) is propelling India as a global electronics manufacturing and design hub. A semiconductor fab and two Outsourced Assembly and Testing (OSAT) facilities have been set up recently with a total investment of Rs 1.25 lakh crore. Related projects will create thousands of technology jobs and start-up opportunities, as ISM’s focus on compound semiconductors like Gallium Nitride and Silicon Carbide will cater to India’s defence, space and Electric Vehicle transportation needs.

To support this growth by creating skilled professionals, IIT Bhubaneswar’s School of Electrical Sciences has launched this M.Tech programme in Semiconductor Technology and Chip Design, covering design, fabrication, assembly, testing, packaging, and development of IPs/ASICs/SoCs/Systems for targeted applications.

Other Courses

To modernise the curricula, IIT Bhubaneswar has also introduced several courses, like Minor in Economics, Micro-specialisation in Software Engineering, courses on entrepreneurship, and a host of new open electives in modern areas of studies for undergraduate and research students.

A Ph.D Fellowship titled ‘Professor R H Tupkary Fellowship’ has been created with the donation of Rs. 1 crore by Prof. Brahma Deo, MGM Chair Professor at IIT Bhubaneswar, as a token of respect for his erstwhile professor at Banaras Hindu University in 1967.
