Division of EECS launches M.Tech. (Artificial Intelligence) from 2019

Update: First round of M.Tech. (AI) offers can now be seen on the COAP platform. This link contains guidelines on the three choices you can make in COAP before the first round deadline. Please follow the instructions and indicate your choice before the deadline. Then complete formalities (which will involve a login to IISc Applicant Interface, acceptance and payment of the fees by the deadline for payment)

Those offered admission can find their offer letter on the IISc Applicant Interface if they haven’t yet received an email. Please note that the letter will indicate that the offer is from the Department of Electrical Engineering. This is only because the EE department is the nodal department handling the M.Tech. (AI) programme this year. The programme is an EECS joint programme comprising of the Departments of CSA, ECE, EE, and ESE..

Artificial Intelligence has captured the imagination of the entire world with its potential ability to solve complex societal problems of our times: universal access to healthcare and education, efficient transportation, increased efficiency in providing e-governance services to the public, etc. Focused national efforts are underway in many countries. The Government of India has initiated widespread discussion on how India should strive to be among the top nations in the world in the AI ecosystem. As a step in that direction, IISc is launching a two-year M.Tech. program in Artificial Intelligence, to fill the critical needs of the industry and fill the gap in high-end AI scientists and engineers.

The vision of the M.Tech. (AI) program is to impart rigorous training in the foundations and deep technology  of Artificial Intelligence to produce graduates who can become world leaders in AI and lead India’s march towards leadership in this important area. This program will be offered by the Division of EECS through the joint efforts of the Departments of CSA, ECE, EE, and ESE.
