Artificial Intelligence

Courses offered with Schedule

The Master of Technology (Online) programme in Artificial Intelligence will be offered by the Division of Electrical, Electronics, and Computer Sciences. The vision of the programme is to impart rigorous training in the foundations and deep technology of Artificial Intelligence to early-career professionals with 2-8 years of experience to upskill them to become technology and business leaders in information-driven enterprises. These learnings are coupled with a unique capstone project that applies the learnings to a hands-on project relevant to the industry. Faculty from the Division of EECS, the Department of CDS, and the RBCCPS will offer contemporary courses in AI through online lectures and tutorials and will provide mentorship on capstone projects.
