MTech (AI & DS)


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is any technique that enables computers to mimic human intelligence. AI is an interdisciplinary science with multiple approaches to build smart machines capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence. Data Science (DS) is an umbrella term for a group of fields that are used to analyze large datasets. It is the field of study that combines domain expertise, programming skills, and knowledge of mathematics and statistics to extract meaningful insights from data.

Data Science is a comprehensive process that involves pre-processing, analysis, visualization and prediction. On the other hand, AI is the implementation of a predictive model to forecast future events. Data Science comprises of various statistical techniques whereas AI makes use of computer algorithms. With Data Science, we build models that use statistical insights. On the other hand, AI is for building models that emulate cognition and human understanding. Data Science does not involve a high degree of scientific processing as compared to AI. Blend of AI & DS allows the students to get best of both worlds.

PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES (PEOs):                                   Post graduates of AI & DS will be able to:

  1. Undertake careers in industry involving innovation and problem solving using Artificial Intelligence and Data Science technologies
  2. Possess research orientation and adopt lifelong learning.

PROGRAM SPECIFIC OUTCOMES (PSOs):                                      After successful completion of the program, students will be able to:

  1. Develop solutions to real world problems in the emerging areas of Manufacturing, Agriculture, Health-care, Education and Cyber Security.
  2. Systematically investigate and provide Artificial Intelligence and Data Science based solutions in multidisciplinary domains.
