IIT Jodhpur: Engineering-linked four-year BS programmes in Chemistry, Physics to be launched soon. More details here 

IIT Jodhpur will also provide the BS programme students with an opportunity to convert their four-year BS programme into a five-year BS - MTech dual degree programme with respective specialisations

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Jodhpur will soon launch new Engineering-linked four-year BS programmes in Chemistry and Physics with specialisation.

Under these programmes, in the second and third years, the students will undergo comprehensive theoretical and experimental courses in advanced concepts of Chemistry and Physics in the respective programmes, and in the final year, these programmes will enable the students to specialise in a focused area in the forefront of Science, as stated in a press release. 

Highlighting the unique aspects of the new four-year BS programmes, Prof Santanu Chaudhury, Director, IIT Jodhpur, said, "Research in Basic Sciences is driving the frontier of technology. Quantum technology, Sustainable materials, Terahertz technology, Gene Therapy, and Green Energy are some examples of science-driving technology innovations. It's time to rethink the basic science programmes, making them foundational for emerging technologies. New BS programmes of IIT Jodhpur have been launched with this motivation."
