IIT Bombay adds non-engineering subjects for UG in curriculum overhaul

Subjects from management, entrepreneurship and design courses have been added to regular engineering curriculum for undergraduate students at IIT Bombay.

According to the reports, engineering students at the IIT Bombay will now have management, entrepreneurship and design courses along with humanities as part of their regular core engineering curriculum.

The non-engineering subjects — humanities, arts, social science, management, entrepreneurship, design, or as the IIT Bombay calls it ‘HARMED’ — are of great significance in the new course curriculum.

This is along with an interdisciplinary STEM (Science, Technology,Engineering, Mathematics) approach combined with the core engineering subjects of a specific branch that a student is pursuing.

The curriculum overhaul is a result of an 11-member committee set up in 2019. The committee was also represented by students.

Earlier, the curriculum at the premier institute was last changed back in 2007.
