New Courses Being Offered at IIT Delhi

 

 

Director of IIT Delhi, Ramgopal Rao, has decided to introduce new degree and short-term courses in the upcoming academic session. The introduction of these courses is an attempt to make IITs more inclusive. According to Mr. Rao, the introduction of these courses is not to lower the quality, but simply to broaden the base.

The short-term courses are for working professionals. “Through these short-term certificate courses, students can move up and finally get a degree if they crack the examinations held,” said Mr. Rao.

Some of the courses/programs include:

  • Certificate Course on “Business Management (Focus: Digital Marketing)
  • Short-term Course on “Fracture Mechanics: Linear Elasticity and FEM
  • Executive Program in “Data and Decision Sciences Consulting
  • One-week course on “Seismic Design of Steel Structures
  • Workshop on “Transportation Systems: Dynamics and Control for Traffic, Vehicles, and Pedestrians
  • Workshop on “Atomistic Simulation of Materials

IIT Delhi also plans to start a new program – “Professors of Practice”

“This program will be started to encourage people working in various industries to come and teach our students. There will be a selection committee to assess whether they are experts in their fields and if so, they will get the opportunity to teach at IIT-D,” said Mr. Rao.

Mistakes that will ruin your JEE Main

While preparing for JEE Main, aspirants often commit certain mistakes. The mistakes committed either during the preparation or at the time of the examination often ruins the aspirants’ JEE score. Thus, this article is to help JEE aspirants identify the most common mistakes which may ruin their JEE score.

Following are some of the mistakes which are committed most often by students:

Not having a well-formed study plan – Knowing the syllabus, having good study material would not help you get a good score in JEE unless you have a study methodology. To qualify an exam as competitive as JEE Main, you must have a practical study plan that guides your preparation.

Not giving equal attention to all subjects – Oftentimes students end up paying more attention to the subject of their interest. It is important to understand that all the three subjects – Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics carry equal weightage in the JEE Main exam. Thus, it is important for students to give equal attention to all the subjects.

Measuring study time by the number of hours – Students often devote numerous hours studying a particular subject or topic and still don’t feel confident about it. The major problem is that most of the time students consider the quantity over the quality of their study time. It is important to understand that how well you study is much more important than how much you study.

Overconfidence – A lot of students overestimate their potential on the basis of good grades in school or in the mock examinations taken during the preparation time. This leads to overconfidence which acts as a great hindrance during the preparation time. Thus, it is very significant for students to stay humble and motivated throughout the journey.

Taking JEE way too seriously – One must understand that JEE is one of our life’s dreams, but not your entire life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Thus, it is absolutely necessary to prepare yourself to face failure with a positive attitude.

Good Luck!
