BML Munjal University (BMU) announces the launch of its new BSc Computer Science (CS) course with a specialization in cyber security, big data analytics, data science, and artificial intelligence (AI).
BMU’s new three-year-long course will begin the first batch from the academic session 2022-2023.
According to the university, the course curriculum will adhere to the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP), the National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF), and the University Grants Commission’s choice-based credit systems and result-based education.
The School of Engineering and Technology at BMU will offer this BSc degree program to students.
Anirban Chakraborti, Dean, School of Engineering Technology, said, “Understanding the talent gap in Data Science and AI in India and in response to the recent demands in the industry 4.0, we at BMU have come up with the course.”
He further added that this course is founded on the notion of interdisciplinary immersion experience learning, with an emphasis on systems thinking and a choice-based curriculum with optional electives.
The global market is booming and needs new talents in cutting-edge technologies like data science and AI. However, not all institutes are offering courses that cater to this need. BMU’s new BSc course will impart critical knowledge and skills that learners require to kick start their careers in the sector of new-age technologies.
Candidates must have a Higher Secondary Certificate (10+2) in the Science stream with an aggregate score of 60 percent and Mathematics as one of the compulsory subjects to be eligible for admission. Students who have not taken any conventional examinations will be required to take the BMU-SAT, a BMI-administered standardized aptitude test.
Interested candidates can learn more and apply for the course from the official website of BMU.
