ThePostgraduate programme in AI and DS designed by MVJCE aims to equip students with the technical skills they need, to process, analyse, and visualize data in a variety of real-time applications. This programme prepares students to recognize and evaluate societal, health, safety and cultural issues, identifying their future obligations as engineers to provide the best possible solutions.

The curriculum of this MTech programme at MVJCE is interdisciplinary, combining Computer Science with mathematical foundations, artificial intelligence techniques, machine learning principles, statistical methods, data science philosophies, and their applications in a variety of fields. Subfields like Big Data Analytics, Deep Learning, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition are also covered in the curriculum. At the end of the programme, students will be able to identify and use formulas, and design principles and procedures, for creating Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning systems. They will be able to use tools from Computer Science to help them with Data Science projects, to summarise, and assess the theories, models and methods of statistics and machine learning. They will learn to use current ideas, algorithms, technologies, approaches and tools, to take on and solve complicated Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence challenges.

This Postgraduate course at MVJCE will develop skills like MIS Reporting Analytics, Data visualization, Data blending and manipulation, Data mining and analysis, R Programming, Statistical analysis and modelling, Predictive modelling, Supervised and Unsupervised Machine Learning, Machine learning modelling, Text mining and NLP, Python for data analysis, Statistical analysis and Data science methods.

A holistic approach to the teaching-learning process offers students a lot of flexibility. The course content incorporates both basic level courses as well as higher level courses in AI and DS. The basic courses like Foundations of Data Science, Deep learning, Data analysis and Visualization will help the students gain a basic understanding of AI and DS. Courses like Modelling& Simulation, AI for High Performance Computing, Optimization methods in Machine Learning, Image analytics and Autonomous vehicles will orient students towards research. The programme will motivate students to take up research-oriented projects in the cutting-edge technologies of AI and DS.

A Sneak Peek into your Future
