M .Tech. in Data Science and Engineering

FETCS 115
S1 C1092

Overview

The programme in Data Science and Engineering, firstly, lays an adequate foundation in data science, mathematics and programming. The programme also lets the student acquire specialized knowledge and insights with a balance in coverage of theory and practice to be able to build effective big data applications.

Objective

The objectives of the programme are to train and educate the students on the following:

  • Data life cycle and associated functions
  • Programming for data science along with libraries
  • Mathematical pre-requisites required for data science and engineering
  • Distributed computing concepts and techniques for Big data
  • Mechanisms related to data storage, data access, data transfer, visualization and predictive modelling in a cost-effective manner
  • Key aspects of distributed processing in big data analytics
  • Data Visualization
  • Machine learning

Highlights

  • Elective Specialisation

    Electives are grouped so that students can specialise in a chosen field. Students can also opt for elective courses across multiple streams given affordability and approval from a course leader, HoDs and Deans, and this requires that guidelines are followed

  • Online Elective

    Students can choose elective courses online through MOOCs, SWAYAM, NPTEL and other equivalent platforms, adhering to guidelines prescribed by the University

  • International Competitions

    Students can also earn 3 or 4 credits by participating in international competitions like technical presentations, conferences and publications in journals and winning awards. Students who achieve this can be exempted from one of the elective courses in the program

  • Group Project

    A group of up to 5 students can come together to work on an interdisciplinary project in consultation with faculty. Students are required to develop a report for assessment and demonstrate the working of the product, and the project needs to be approved by a committee before it is executed. The IPR rights of all such work lies with the University only

  • Industry Internship or Project

    A student can opt for an internship in an industry, a business or research organisation. Alternately, students can undertake a mini-project which requires self-directed study that can be pursued with an affiliated faculty member. The internship needs to be approved by the HoD and Dean and students have to submit a report and make a presentation to a panel constituted by the HoD for assessment

  • Dissertation and Publication

    This course includes a dissertation and publication. Each student has to choose a relevant topic for a dissertation and this needs to be approved by a committee constituted by the HoD. The dissertation should then be converted into a technical paper published in reputed conferences or journals

  • Uses application-based learning.
  • Offers research opportunities.
  • Includes internship, training, and placement support with various universities worldwide.
  • Offers training by faculty members holding PhD degrees in Data Science who train students in group projects and dissertation work.
  • Includes expert guest lectures from various institutions and industries.
  • Ensures workshop, industry visits, group discussions and debates.
  • Offers small batches to encourage in-depth learning.

  • We offer accommodation in student hostels on our campus, and even offer third-party off-campus hotels where necessary to ensure students can focus on what matters the most. 
  • Our on-campus facilities include WiFi any time of the day, 24/7.
  • From a host of eateries and laundry facilities, we ensure that students have access to all facilities.
  • We encourage students to participate in co-curricular activities on campus which include sports and cultural events, both at a university level and a faculty level.
  • We help students focus on independent and sponsored research with projects and a dissertation.
