While the above courses require one to crack JEE Advanced to get admissions into the IITs, the institutes have launched several short-term and long-term online courses which you can join even without appearing for the IIT entrance. Some of these courses include:

IIT Roorkee Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

The six-month Advanced Machine Learning and AI course is available on Coursera for Rs 112,500. It aims to teach the advanced techniques about machine learning and skills required to build deep learning models and artificial intelligence applications.

IIT Madras Diplomas in Programming, Data Science, Virtual Reality

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras has launched eight-month diploma programmes in programming and data science and in virtual reality. Interested candidates just need not have an engineering or computer science background to apply for the online course. It is open to students, working professionals, and job seekers who have completed graduation in any discipline through any mode. While the diploma in virtual reality is for anyone with an engineering background.

IIT Bombay Online Course in Digital Transformation, Electric Vehicles

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay has launched two new certificate programs — Digital Transformation and Power Electronics and Motors for Electric Vehicles (EVs).  The four-month online courses are available at Coursera. It will teach how to identify opportunities to transform the organisation through strategic implementation of new technologies and build analytical skills to understand how to implement and execute the right solutions.

Many IITs also offer a four-year Bachelor of Design (BDes) programme that teaches design principles, images, and photography. For this, candidates need to appear for the Undergraduate Common Entrance Examination for Design (UCEED). Students from arts and commerce can also take up this course.
