- The programs will be offered at the School of Technology Management and Engineering (STME) campus at Jadcherla.
- Four-year program in Computer Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science).
- AICTE-approved programs designed for the fastest-growing career options for undergraduate students.
Hyderabad, July28: NMIMS School of Technology Management and Engineering (STME) announced the launch of new-age and unique undergraduate programs in Computer Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science) at its Jadcherla campus. Both programs will help prepare the youth in Telangana for the latest and fast-emerging technology jobs.
The comprehensive four-year B Tech program in Computer Engineering at the school will help students gain expertise in modern engineering practices and disruptive technologies. The curriculum follows international standards that include creating a balance of mathematics, basic sciences, humanities, and computer engineering.
B Tech in Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science), also a four-year program, constitutes a good blend of engineering, mathematics, analytics management, and general education related to modern skill sets of Data Science.
Approved by the All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), the two B Tech programs are requisite in the framework of the growing number of companies in Telangana that are embedding Machine Learning and Data Science into their business operations.
The programs will also offer industry internships, and industry-based project works to facilitate students in the form of job offers or further studies and research.
Announcing the commencement of the admission process for the programs, Dr. Sharad Mhaiskar, Pro Vice Chancellor, SVKM’s NMIMS, says, “Till a few years ago, Telangana was facing a shortage of admissions in engineering programs. This was due to a lack of job opportunities as well as the presence of wide skill gaps owing to programs that were not in tandem with the rapidly changing IT sector. However, this trend is now reversing and there is a resurgence of demand for up-to-date engineering programs owing to the near complete adoption of digitization, development of infrastructure in the state, and entry of multinational IT firms like Facebook and Amazon. What we will particularly see are an exponential rise in Data Science jobs. As per reports, as many as 11.5 million jobs are expected by 2026. NMIMS recognised the urgent need to bring in programs that can address the skill gaps in the engineering field and prepare youngsters for the flourishing career opportunities.”
Dr. Alka Mahajan, Dean, Mukesh Patel School of Technology Management & Engineering, added, “Today businesses and decision-makers grapple with a huge amount of data and must ensure that it is secure and used efficiently. The need of the hour is to develop widely skilled data and computer scientists alongside managerial skills with a global perspective. These programs have been designed to train and educate students on the new-age advancements in the fields of computer engineering and data science and will exponentially increase their chances of gaining employability or developing their own entrepreneurial ventures.”
Candidates interested in applying for the program must have passed the 12th standard or equivalent examinations from a recognized board to qualify – Application link: https://apply.nmims.edu/b-tech-mba-tech-non-cet
