Trichy: National Institute of Technology Trichy (NIT-T) is about to introduce a hybrid MTech program in Artificial Intelligence and Data Science this current semester. The curriculum is specially designed for working professionals and can be completed in 2 years.
Students with bachelor’s degree programs like BTech or BE, or MSc (or any other equivalent degree in computer sciences) from a recognized university are eligible to apply for the course. The classes have been scheduled after standard working hours, keeping in view the schedules of working professionals.
G Aghila, director of NIT Trichy, said, “The course is being jointly offered by Computer Applications, Computer Science and Engineering Management Studies departments. There is no entrance exam for this course. Sixty per cent marks in their respective subject are enough.”
NIT-T has also introduced a flexible curriculum and credit transfer from other institutions. Additionally, there are many options available to pursue the course in sections with different ‘Entry and Exit Points.’ candidates have the possibilities to leave with a certificate with credit points after the completion of six months and pursue it later if they want.
This makes the hybrid MTech course a very flexible and fruitful option for working professionals to enhance their knowledge and qualifications.
