US-based Case Western University has collaborated with INSOFE to offer a dual specialisation Masters in computer science and artificial intelligence. The course is suitable for students with no background in IT or computer science. The program was launched formally on July 23 via a virtual session.
The MS course in computer science and artificial intelligence is the fourth program in the list of dual specialisation programs offered by Case Western Reserve University and INSOFE. The other three courses are mechanical engineering with AI and robotics; civil and environmental engineering with AI and machine learning; biomedical engineering with digital health analytics. Under these programs, the first semester is in India and the subsequent course work is completed at Case Western Reserve University in the US. Students are eligible for 25 percent scholarships and a waiver for GRE and TOEFL.
During the launch of the latest program, Dr Vipin Chaudhary, department chair, Computer and Data Sciences Department at Case School of Engineering said, “The MS Program in Computer Science and Data Science is highly competitive. If students who are not from IT or Computer Sciences background would like to take up Computer Sciences as masters, there are pathway programs through which they can consider moving into computer science from any other master’s programs in the University.”
Elaborating further, Dr Dakshinamurthy V Kolluru, President and Co-Founder of INSOFE, said, “The current-day computer sciences student should focus on innovation – Engineering a query language that could be smarter than SQL could be a problem they would like to solve. This collaborative master’s program aims at creating students who are committed to building such intellectual capital.”
