The Division of EECS launched the first ever M.Tech. Programme in Artificial Intelligence in August 2019 with a batch of 36 students selected from all over India through a competitive selection process joining the Programme. The programme is run jointly by four departments: CSA, ECE, EE, and ESE. Timken has provided a generous CSR grant with which a computational Lab for an AI Lab for M.Tech. students is being created in the Division of EECS (Department of ESE).  The lab is equipped with a powerful GPU based supermicro server, a DGX workstation from NVIDIA, and several other computational workstations. The computational platform has  proved to be  a critical  computational resource for the M.Tech. students for their course work and project work.
