The annual growth rate  of artificial intelligence (AI) is predicted to be 33.2% between 2020 and 2027. The market growth of AI is hampered due to lack in the number of experienced and trained professionals. This programme would transform and strengthen the industries across the globe. It focuses on intelligence exhibited by the machines and is a hybrid intelligence, where AI systems and humans work together. The curriculum offers an opportunity to approach AI from a technical perspective that focuses on the understanding, analysis and development of novel AI algorithms as well as social and human perspectives. Decision making, problem solving, perception, understanding human communication (in any language, and translate among them) for the computers would be the key elements taught in this programme. This programme provides the foundation and advanced skills in the principles and technologies that underlie AI including logic, knowledge representation, probabilistic models, and machine learning.  Students can pursue topics in depth, with courses available in areas such as robotics, vision, and natural language processing.

Cyber Security entails the procedure of defending electronic devices, systems, networks and data from any type of malicious attacks. While living in a futuristic society, surrounded by gadgets embedded with data the role of cyber security personnel becomes even more critical. The exponential growth of cyber-attacks needs more and more cyber experts. Demand in the cyber security job market is soaring while supply is running critically low. There aren’t enough qualified and skilled cyber security professionals to fill the growing need. Cyber security engineers, identify threats and vulnerabilities in systems and software, and then apply their skills to develop and implement high-tech solutions to defend against various cyber attacks.

As cyber attacks grow in volume and complexity, artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly indispensable to manage cyber threats. At the same time, the adoption of AI techniques for cyber-attacks is also on the rise. AI thus has become an indispensable tool to manage cyber security risks, technical challenges,  resource constraints and to improve systems’ robustness and resilience. The Master of Technology in Computer Science & Engineering with Specialization Cyber Security Engineering degree focuses on the fundamentals of developing, engineering, and implementing AI based secure systems. The students will receive grounding in the fundamentals of cyber security and AI and they will carry out research projects at the interface of the two. During the first semester, the programme focuses on fundamental courses in computer science, cyber security and artificial intelligence. During the second semester, the students will strengthen their knowledge in advanced fields of cyber security and artificial intelligence through courses focusing on recent application of cyber security and AI in computer engineering, the use of AI techniques in cyber security and the safety and security of applications incorporating AI. This unique M.Tech program provides students with a sound understanding of both disciplines. It puts considerable emphasis on their intersection. The graduates of this programme can get hired as Research Scientist, Principal Cryptographer, Cryptography Engineer, Cyber Security Architect, Security Analyst, Security Consultant, Chief Information Security Officer, Security Auditor  etc. Further, graduates of this programme will be able to pursue Ph.D research or a research career on the interplay between cyber security, AI and other computing disciplines.
