Computing has permeated our lives - very few areas in modern society are untouched by computer science. Every field of human endeavor, be it
Transportation, defense, entertainment, healthcare, education, communication, or social interaction, is impacted positively by it.Computer science is the study of computational systems, including the theoretical foundations of computing, the design and development of software systems, and the application of computing to solve complex, challenging problems in all kinds of business, industry, scientific, and social contexts.
Artificial intelligence is shaping the future of humanity across nearly every industry. it is predicted that it will continue to revolutionize how we live and work and drive disruptive technologies for the foreseeable future. Through AI, computers have the ability to harness massive amounts of data and use their learned intelligence to make optimal decisions and discoveries in fractions of the time that it would take humans. As the demand for AI technology grows, so does the need for talent with the skills to develop and deploy it. The computer science & Engineering program with Artificial Intelligence specialization aims to build computing professionals for the rapidly growing field of AI.
The core of the Computer Science & Engineering (AI) curriculum includes programming languages and methodologies, databases, the analysis of algorithms and data structures, and the study of operating systems. The curriculum continues with advanced data structures, data analytics, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence courses. The program emphasizes developing graduates with an in-depth understanding of machine learning, deep learning, Natural language processing, computer vision, and hands-on experience with leading AI tools. Theoretical learning is integrated with hands-on laboratories and course projects to make the courses highly experiential and contextual.
The coursework is complemented with interventions to sharpen or develop soft skills like communication, teamwork, interpersonal skills, and critical thinking, which are essential for a successful career. From the first to the final year, students have opportunities to carry out several projects in which student teams, working with faculty/industry mentors, put their knowledge to work on a real-world issue to find innovative solutions to engineering problems. As part of the courses, students are introduced to coding competition platforms to level up their programming skills and compete with programmers worldwide. The program also offers the option of doing an internship with industry or research labs. The advanced state-of-the-art research laboratories allow students to work on projects in niche technology areas. The program emphasizes developing graduates with an in-depth understanding of machine learning, deep learning, Natural language processing, computer vision, and hands-on experience with leading AI tools.
