The School offers four different programmes of study leading to:
M.Tech. (Computer Science)
M.Tech. (Artificial Intelligence)
M.Tech. (Information Technology) with specialization in Banking Technology & Information Security in collaboration with IDRBT.
In addition, the School also participates in the M.Tech. programme in Computational Techniques run by School of Physics.
In all the courses classroom teaching is supplemented with seminars, term papers, minor projects and assignments.
The M.C.A. Programme aims to prepare graduates in all the major areas of computer science, relevant aspects of mathematics and management so that they can take up both technical and managerial positions in industry. The training is rigorous and involves five semesters of course work and one semester of project work.
M.Tech. (Computer Science) is a four-semester course including two semesters of course work and two semesters of project work. This programme is meant for graduates in engineering disciplines and postgraduates in related sciences and as such it includes both fundamental topics and advanced topics for specialisation.
M.Tech. (Artificial Intelligence) is also a four-semester course including two semesters of course work and two semesters of project work. This programme is meant for students already well equipped in computing sciences and as such imparts advanced training in all the major areas of artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies, such as machine learning, data mining, etc.
M.Tech. (Information Technology) is a four-semester programme including two semesters of course work and two semesters of project work meant for graduates in engineering discipline and postgraduates in related sciences. This unique M.Tech. programme in Information Technology with specialization in Banking Technology and Information Security aims at imparting in-depth knowledge and state-of- art expertise to the students through innovative learning supported by high calibre research and technology leadership to create a pool of responsible and resourceful IT professionals, in particular, for the financial-banking sector.
The general information on admission of sponsored candidates and Foreign nationals in M.Tech. is as follows:
Sponsored candidates: Employees with a minimum 2 years of work experience in IT companies registered with STPI or NASSCOM or Central Government Organisations can apply for M.Tech. admission in CS/AI.
