The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) presented a variety of new courses for students this year, as they do every year. Students can choose from a wide range of programmes, including BTech Engineering in Physics at IIT-Indore and IIT-Patna and a dual degree in quantum technology at IIT Bombay. Find the course that best suits you by looking at its structure and the other courses.

Indore IIT

This year, IIT-Indore launched the newest courses, ranging from BTech in Engineering Physics to BTech in Mathematics and Computing to BTech in Space Science and Engineering. From the 2023 academic year onward, IIT Indore will begin admissions to these courses. According to the institute's homepage, admissions would be made on the basis of JEE Advanced scores. Candidates must also have passed a recognised state or central board's Class 12 (or equivalent) examination.

IT Patna

In addition, IIT Patna has launched a new BTech programme in Engineering Physics. The main components of the programme are solid Physics instruction and exposure to cutting-edge technologies. The course aims to combine modern physics and electrical engineering, producing workers who are equally at ease with science and technology.

University of Mumbai

In the near future, IIT Bombay will launch an Interdisciplinary Dual Degree Programme (IIDDP) in Quantum Technology. The Centre of Excellence in Quantum Information Computing Science and Technology (QuICST) would provide the course. Students enrolled in any Bachelor of Technology (BTech) course at the institute will be eligible to apply for the IIDDP course. While the dual degree programme's structure has not yet been defined, it would be a two-year programme with courses focusing on quantum technology and project work that could be done with a research group linked with the QuICST. This new course, like other dual degree programmes, will allow students to earn both a Bachelor's and a Masters's degree in a five-year period. In the third year of their respective course, a BTech student can select the programme. Students with a BTech in any discipline are eligible to apply for this course.

Jodhpur IIT

A new Bachelor of Science in Physics with a specialisation programme has been launched by the Physics Department at IIT Jodhpur. The programme seeks to attract highly motivated students who are interested in basic science and cutting-edge technologies in the broad discipline of physics blended with engineering, and who want a flexible programme to consider a variety of challenging career paths through capability-linked specialisations in Energy, Photonics, Quantum, and Advanced Plasma Technologies. Admission to this programme is on the basis of JEE Advanced scores, and candidates must have completed class 12 in the Science stream. The undergraduate programme lasts four years and is divided into eight semesters. On the basis of JEE Advanced rankings, admission will be made.

Hyderabad's IIT 

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad has launched an industry-focused BTech programme in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. Students enrolled in this programme will learn about the role of information technology and computer science in comprehending biological data. It is a four-year, full-time undergraduate course with eight semesters. Each semester, candidates will be required to study 7 to 8 subjects. On the basis of JEE Advanced rankings, admission will be made.

These are the new courses that the IITs have launched this year. If you find that you are eligible for these courses, please apply. For additional information about the course, please visit the official websites of the individual IITs.
