The School offers five different programmes of study leading to: Ph.D. in Computer Science, 5-year Integrated M.Tech. in Computer Science, M.Tech. (Computer Science), M.Tech. (Artificial Intelligence), M.Tech. (Information Technology) with specialization in Banking Technology & Information Security in collaboration with IDRBT, Hyderabad, and M.C.A. In addition, the school also contributes and supports the School of Physics, School of Life Sciences, 5-year Integrated M.A. and M.Sc. courses.
Ph.D. in Computer Science
The School has a very vibrant Ph.D programme with more than 50 registered students currently, both Indian and foreign nationals, as on date and more than 100 scholars have completed their research till now. As the School always has a high priority for research, it strongly encourages fresh and brilliant students to participate in the above exciting research programmes as full-time/part-time Ph.D. students. School further offers Visvesvarya PhD Fellowships (sponsored by DeitY) for supporting brilliant Ph.D. students. This is subject to sanction of the Govt. of India (Admission Notice will come as a separate advertisement). Further, details can be found at http://phd.medialabasia.in/. The School is also recognized as an AICTE Minor QIP Centre for PhD Programme. For details please refer to website http://www.qip.iitb.ac.in/
Ph.D. programme is offered on full time, part time and external registration basis as per the university regulations. Candidates who have the required qualifications and are doing teaching/research in recognized institutions or researchers from companies registered with STPI/NASSCOM/Central Government Organizations who operate within the jurisdiction of the University can apply for part time admission subject to the availability during the concerned session. Interested candidates are advised to study the areas of research from the School and faculty profiles.
5-year Integrated M.Tech. in Computer Science
The School has introduced a 5-year Integrated M.Tech. programme in Computer Science with effect from the academic year 2014-15. The students will be awarded MTech(CS) degree at the end of five years. It is to be noted that there is no exit option. This programme is intended to provide a high quality computer science education with a curriculum that is state-of-the-art. The School boasts of a very low student-teacher ratio that allows faculty to give individual attention to students.
Master of Technology (M.Tech): is meant for graduates in engineering disciplines and postgraduates in related sciences. Three different streams of M.Tech. are offered by the School – M.Tech(CS), M.Tech(AI) and M.Tech(IT) with specialization in Banking Technology and Information Security. Admissions are open for industry sponsored and foreign candidates also. These are all supernumerary.
M.Tech. (Computer Science): This programme offers core courses of computer science like Operating Systems, Computer Architecture, Algorithms, Software Engineering at an advanced level. Specialized electives of faculty research interest are offered as electives. Students can also specialize in “Systems”, “Security” and “High Performance Computing” based on courses taken and the dissertation in these areas.
M.Tech. (Artificial Intelligence): This programme is meant for students interested in specializing in artificial intelligence such as Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Machine Learning, Human Computer Interaction etc.
M.Tech. (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 banking and finance sector. This course is offered in collaboration with IDRBT, an RBI institute.
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. MCA students of earlier batches have been offered internships at companies such as IBM, GE, Microsoft, CA, CMC, Honeywell etc. and are thus provided an opportunity to learn in industry environment during their last semester.
