The Bangalore campus of Physic Wallh (PW) Institute of Innovation (IOI) is set to offer a complete four-year residential program specializing in Computer Science (CS) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). The first batch, comprising 200 seats, is scheduled to commence on September 25 with a total program fee of 15 lakhs for the 4-year duration.
This initiative was undertaken to introduce a fresh curriculum, as several institutes in India have been using outdated curricula for years. In this program, participants will get an opportunity to receive guidance from industry leaders, compulsory paid internships, attend networking events, and solve real-world practical assignments.
The four-year curriculum covers a wide range of topics, such as data science, ML frameworks, data mining & warehousing, advanced data structures, NLP, Big Data, statistical inference, and more.
PW IOI aims to prepare students for jobs and doesn’t provide a degree. However, on successful completion of this course, PW also guarantees placements, provided that the student successfully completes all internship and project requirements.
To select genuine students, PW IOI has specified certain standards for admission. Aspiring candidates need to have a score of 60% or higher in both Class 10th and 12th, with Physics, Mathematics, and Chemistry as their subjects. In addition, they must clear the PW IOI entrance exam. Students who are eligible for JEE Advanced 2023 will be granted directly without the need for the entrance exam.
Students also have the opportunity to apply for scholarships, which will be based on their JEE Mains/Advanced ranks and their performance in the entrance exam.
Interested candidates can enroll for this course from the PW IOI official website by submitting a non-refundable fee of Rs. 2500/-. The last date for registration for this course is August 30.

He also addressed the rising concerns related to the gap between learner demand and supply, along with the gap in employability. He further shared the launch of PW IOI and the aim behind this program.
