The master degree “M.Tech in Artificial Intelligence and Data Science” is the pinnacle degree in Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning. It is a two years post graduate program for the under graduates who would like to pursue their career in the relevant field.
An under graduate who has completed B.Tech/B.E in CSE or in any other engineering discipline, may take admission here. After completing masters in AI & DS, the graduates may apply the techniques learnt in AI & DS to improve their processes, manufacturing, development and etc, in their own field of domain expertise. Any engineering graduate like mechanical engineer, electronics engineer, bio engineer or any other engineer may apply AI & DS in their engineering field to improve their business.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is playing a major role in the fourth industrial revolution and we are seeing a lot of evolution in various machine learning methodologies. AI techniques are widely used by the practicing engineer to solve a whole range of hitherto intractable problems. One can learn to apply AI methods in all branches of engineering. Some area where AI is applied, E-Commerce, Education, Lifestyle, Human resources, Healthcare, Agriculture, Gaming, Automobiles, Social media, Marketing, Finance and etc.
The curriculum is designed in such a way that it incorporates both basic level courses as well as higher level courses in AI & DS. The basic courses like AI&ML, Foundations of Data science, Deep learning, Data analysis & Visualization will help the students to form basic understanding in AI & DS.
The courses like modeling & simulation, AI for High performance computing, Optimization methods in machine learning, Image analytics, Autonomous vehicles will help develop research oriented topics. The program will also facilitate students to take up on research oriented projects in the cutting edge technologies of AI & DS.
Total credit is 70. Out of which the projects and master thesis will attract 16 credits which is 23% of the total credits. So much importance is given for projects and thesis. The open elective will enable students to acquire basic knowledge in other engineering domains where one can apply AI & DS.
The programme includes,
- Advanced topics relevant to AI & DS if a student is already an AI & DS professional.
- Basic topics relevant to AI & DS who is the first time learner in AI & DS professional.
- Courses that teach tools & skills expected by the AI & DS Industry.
- Basic research oriented courses which will build a strong research foundation.
Scikit Learn, Tensorflow, Theano, Caffe, MxNet, Keras, PyTorch, CNTK.
Tableau, Google Data Studio
Open MP, MPI, CUDA programming, C++, Python
OpenCV, Python NLTK, SCIKit, Keras
Hadoop, PIG, Hive, SparkML, NoSQL, MongoDB, Casandra, HBase, Kafka
In software industry, a post graduate will earn better salary compared to an under graduate. The research oriented jobs in research concerns has better prospects than a regular job.

Whether a B.E / B.Tech degree holder in any discipline is eligible for admission?
Yes. Any graduate from engineering disciplines is eligible for admission.
Whether PG graduate in VIT Bhopal will get equal campus interviews with a UG graduates?
Yes, most of the time. Unless if companies specifically ask for only UG/PG graduates, which is very rare.
Is the PG graduates salary is better that a UG graduate?
Obviously in software industries a PG graduate salary is better than a UG graduate salary.
Can I attend the classes online? Or is the attendance compulsory?
No, one has to attend classes in person unless there is any restrictions imposed by governments because of pandemic situations.
Is there any equivalent degree available in other universities?
Usually universities offer either AI or DS degree programs. Very rarely they offer such program.
Whether VIT Bhopal has facilities to carryout research in AI & DS?
Of course it has. The laboratories are equipped with high end servers, clusters and workstations. They have all the software licenses one would require to carry out research in AI & DS. We have 100% doctoral faculty who do active research who are going to deliver the classes.
How is PG in AI & DS different from UG?
Research oriented courses in AI & DS. Since it’s the combination of AI and DS, it is different from our AI and DS programs.
How AI, ML, DS are related?
- What is the lifespan of these technologies?
These technologies will exist for another 25 years at least.
- Can I take AI & DS as my lifetime career?
Yes. Since the future cannot exist without either AI/ML or DS.
