B.Tech Programme

B.Tech in Artificial Intelligence & Data Science is a specialization of Computer Science and Engineering concerned with methods to make computers or machines intelligent. This programme introduced in the year 2020 at Rajagiri School of Engineering &Technology ( Autonomous ) as a 4 years course at the UG level, aims at developing the technical skills of students to perform Information System: design, acquisition, storage and retrieval, plays a major role in various real-world applications to infer intelligent decision making based on data acquired through various electro-mechanical devices. The term “AI” is used so often nowadays that we have a basic understanding of what it means: a computer’s ability to perform tasks such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and language translation.

 Artificial Intelligence has progressed rapidly over the last few years. It is one of the most demanding courses in today’s world as it has excellent career opportunities in various sectors, such as IT and IT-enabled service industries, banking, government agencies, business, telecommunication, e-commerce, healthcare, climatology, social networking companies, biotechnology, genetics, research and development, insurance, aerospace, and many more. The need for more optimized algorithms, irrespective of the application area, demands experts in AI-based technologies, which leads to opportunities for programmers, AI Infrastructure specialists, and entrepreneurs. After graduation, students can opt for higher education in Artificial Intelligence and Data Science. They can start their AI-based start-ups as the demand for new methods of problem-solving and prediction in different sectors is way higher than now, and they can become entrepreneurs.

During the last decade, data science engineering has emerged as one of the most lucrative career fields in technology and allied businesses. Data science is not just related to the statistical aspect of the process, but it feeds the process and derives benefits from it through data engineering. Data engineers and data scientists have a huge role to play in propelling AI forward.

In addition to the fundamental programming skills, this course provides advanced subjects in the field of AI and Data Science: Python fundamentals, Statistical foundations, Data Mining, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Big data analytics, Deep Learning, and Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, Social Network Analysis etc. Students can choose this course as it makes them fit for the industry and start their careers as Data Scientists, Machine Learning (ML) Engineers, Data Analysts, ML software engineers, ML researchers, and Software Engineers. This course of study begins with computer fundamentals and the basic computer core subjects common to all computer-related branches to fit them as computer programmers wrapped up with skills set on AI.
