Claiming that the course can bridge the need for technical expertise to tackle the global slowdown, Ajit K Chaturvedi, Director, IIT-Roorkee said, “COVID-19 has triggered a nationwide lockdown. This is the best time to upskill oneself. This initiative will be attractive to users who aim to excel in the technical field.”

Meanwhile, IIT-Roorkee had come up with several initiatives to curb the COVID-19 pandemic including a mobile tracking app that can send alerts when a quarantined person ventures beyond the prescribed area to 3-D printed face shields for frontline healthcare professionals. IIT-Ropar had given 1,000 of these shields to AIIMS-Rishikesh. IIT Roorkee has also developed ‘Prana-Vayu’, a ventilator that can be operated through a mobile app with the use of Internet of Things (IoT) and hence reducing the need of human interaction between the patients and healthcare staff.
