IIT Indore launches a new course, BTech in Space Science and Engineering

A new BTech course in space science and engineering has just been launched at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT Indore). Students will be able to learn about and make predictions about astronomy, agriculture, environment, ecology, and climate change as well as communication, navigation, defence, and security.

This course may be ideal for you if you find astronomy and space fascinating. An overview of the curriculum, eligibility requirements, and course format is provided below.

Students will be exposed to cutting-edge research and technological advancements in the fields of payloads, small satellites, and detector design, data analytics, imaging, and high-end numerical simulations, with applications focused on astronomy, earth observation, climate change, and sustainable development.

With carefully selected elective courses and a semester-long research project, students in this course can specialise in one of the following areas: space instrumentation, including detectors and payloads, imaging and data analytics, remote sensing and atmospheric engineering, astronomy and astrophysics.

There are 20 seats available for BTech students studying space science and engineering. There are eight semesters in the four-year, full-time undergraduate programme. Candidates must take 6 to 7 required subjects each semester in addition to their choice of electives.

JEE Advanced score will be used to determine admission to all three programmes. Candidates must also have passed the class 12 (or equivalent) exam from a recognised state or central board.

By enrolling in higher studies, students who take the course can contribute to the research and development of space technology. They can collaborate on projects to advance space technology both with the public and private sectors.
