The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati, one of India’s premier engineering institutes, is all set to offer new PG courses in subjects like cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and deep learning.
IIT Guwahati has collaborated with Times Professional Learning (TPL) to offer these new post-graduate courses. The courses adhere to the new guidelines set by the National Education Policy 2020 and are meticulously designed to teach learners the critical skills that the global artificial intelligence and cybersecurity industries currently demand.
Graduates with a minimum of 50% marks and having at least two years of experience in IT or software industries can readily apply for the newly launched PG courses.
The PG certification program in cybersecurity is an eight-month course, whereas the PG certification program in AI and deep learning is nine months. Learners enrolled in the cybersecurity program will be eligible to work for numerous trending job roles like network security specialist, cyber security analyst, cybersecurity architects, cyber security manager, and many more.
It is a very future-ready course as there has been a growing demand for training professionals in the cybersecurity domain because of increasing data and security breaches across the globe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Director of IIT Guwahati, Prof T.G. Sitharam, said, “AI-based technology has made rapid inroads through its seamless mechanisms and improved productivity through reduced human intervention. With the greater adoption of technology, there is a growing need for people with the best-in-class technical skill sets to meet demand.”
The nine-month PG certification course in artificial intelligence and deep learning will help students learn core fundamentals of the subjects, including data analytics, python programming, neural networks, and computer vision, to help students get jobs roles like Computer Vision Expert, AI/ML Engineer, Cloud Support Engineer, and others. Last year, IIT Guwahati started offering undergraduate (UG) B.Tech courses in artificial intelligence and data science.
