Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IITGN) will offer BTech in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) from the academic year 2016-17.
The CSE curriculum at IITGN is designed to provide substantial opportunity for experiencing applications through hands-on projects, inspired by real world problems. It emphasises the mathematical foundations of computer science.
At the same time, the electives are structured to optimise for a variety of specialisations, including algorithm design, machine learning, artificial intelligence, data science, information security, operating systems, and so on.
IITGN Faculty of CSE, Prof Anirban Dasgupta said, “The curriculum will also entail specific tracks in which a sequence of electives will be available for undergraduates to specialise in. These electives will involve interfaces with other fields such as medicine, cognitive computing, computational mechanics, computational biology, statistical physics, quantum computing, robotics, internet of things, computational social science etc. Such tracks will draw upon the strengths of researchers from other disciplines at IITGN.”
In order to bring students as close as possible to the current frontiers of research in that topic, the programme will also have supervised readings, semester-long project courses, industry collaborations, and expert visitors.
Among the BTech programmes that IITGN has been offering until now are Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering.
