The Department was started in the academic year 2022-23 to offer under graduate degree programme i.e., Bachelor of Engineering (BE) in Computer Science & Engineering (Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning). AI&ML is a new and upcoming program in the area of computer science that is rapidly expanding its boundaries to variety of fields like healthcare, security, entertainment, education, autonomous transportation, intelligent robots, space exploration, speech processing, stock trading and many more. We have seen a lot of change in our lives because to artificial intelligence and its applications.
AI aims to artificially imitate human intelligence in order to instil intelligence into robots. An application of AI called machine learning (ML) aims to give machines the ability to learn on their own. Numerous career opportunities have been produced as a result of AI and ML, which are significant drivers of the digital transformation. There is a huge demand for skilled engineers trained in these technologies.
A degree from this programme is valuable and helps students get employment in their fields. This course assists in developing fundamental knowledge and skills in the areas of mathematics, network architectures, computer vision, programming, communication networks, and machine learning courses which enrich the student skills and knowledge for developing smart and intelligent application which delivers the needs of society and nation.
The department organizes training programmes for the staffs and students which helps themselves in technological advancements and present research findings. To increase the opportunity of placements to students and overall personality development, the department conducts and motivates them in soft skills training programmes, technical skill development activities, and initiatives on self-learning like certification courses through recognized online platforms (SWAYAM-NPTEL, Courseara, Udemy, edx etc..) and extracurricular activities under the umbrella of various associations.
