About the Event

IIT Jodhpur was established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), GoI, along with the eight other IITs in 2008. Responding to the changing trends in the industry, IIT Jodhpur has introduced new UG, PG, and research programs in Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Cyber-Physical Systems, Sensors, Internet of Things and Smart Manufacturing. The Institute now promotes interdisciplinary research in emerging domains, including Space Technology, Internet of Things, Digital Humanities, Autonomous Unmanned Vehicles, Smart Health, Cognitive Science, and Quantum Computing. Special provisions have been created in the curriculum for enabling students (UG, PG, PhD) to pursue entrepreneurship or getting engaged in technology translation as part of their program. Industry Day 2021 plans to engage policymakers, scientists, industry experts, and entrepreneurs in meaningful discussions and formulate a way forward for stronger industry-academia linkages.
