The Indian Institute of Technology Delhi Abu Dhabi (IIT Delhi - Abu Dhabi) has introduced its first Bachelor of Technology (BTech) programmes. The initial two programmes include BTech in Energy Engineering and BTech in Computer Science. The BTech in Energy Engineering offers various engineering verticals with a focus on sustainability to address energy production and management challenges. On the other hand, the BTech in Computer Science and Engineering emphasizes AI, machine learning, and problem-solving techniques.

There are a total of 60 seats available, with each programme offering 30 seats. Admissions for the academic programmes can be obtained through Combined Admission Entrance Test (CAET) 2024 and Joint Entrance Examination (JEE–Advanced) 2024. These programmes aim to equip undergraduates with the knowledge and skills to address energy challenges, shape the digital age, and develop software for various industries.

Registration for the academic year 2024-2025 is open until 3 June 2024, with the two programmes commencing concurrently in September 2024. This initiative follows the launch of the master’s programme in Energy Transition and Sustainability (ETS) in January 2024. Successful BTech applicants will undergo the four-year programme at IIT Delhi - Abu Dhabi, which houses specialized research centers focused on sustainable energy, climate studies, computing, and data sciences.

Upon graduation, the alumni of IIT Delhi - Abu Dhabi will become part of an extensive alumni network. The Abu Dhabi campus was established through a partnership between the Ministry of Education, India, IIT Delhi, and ADEK in July 2023. Dr Ahmed Sultan Alshoaibi, Acting Executive Director of the Higher Education Sector at the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK), highlighted the significant role of technology and engineering in shaping the future economy through these undergraduate programmes. Professor Rangan Banerjee, Director at IIT Delhi, emphasized the plan to combine academic rigor with a rich campus experience to nurture students and provide them with transformative educational experiences.
