Ecole Centrale School of Engineering, Mahindra University (MU) Hyderabad, has announced five new interdisciplinary M Tech programs. These programs are aimed at offering an advanced level of specialisation in new-age technology domains for widespread adoption and an inter-disciplinary integration of engineering from system management to application to life cycle management. The new M Tech courses announced are – CSE, Data Science and AI, Embedded Systems and VLSI, Systems Engineering, and Power Electronics. The University already has M Tech programs in A-EVs (Autonomous Electric Vehicles) and Computer Aided Structural Engineering (CASE).

Students with full-time bachelor’s degrees from recognised Universities with a minimum aggregate of 60 per cent or equivalent grade are eligible to apply. Applicants with a GATE score of 80 percentile and above will have to undergo an interview for admission; others will have to additionally take a written test that ECSE-MU would conduct.

The fee for students who take admission through the GATE route is Rs 1,00,000 per annum. They will be offered teaching assistantships, which will include a stipend of Rs 15,000 per month, along with free in-campus boarding and lodging. For other students, the fee is Rs 1,00,000 along with Rs 2,00,000 per annum for hostel charges. Select students from the non-GATE pool may be considered for teaching assistantship posts.

On the introduction of new courses, Dr Yajulu Medury, Vice-Chancellor, Mahindra University, said, “Our vision behind the introduction of these new-age M Tech programs is to bridge this talent demand-supply gap by imparting best-in-class education to our students while equipping them with superlative industry-ready skills.”

Bishnu P Pal, Professor, Dean School of Engineering and Academics, said, “The vision behind these M Tech programs is to forge and educate the engineers of tomorrow by helping them adapt to global engineering and IoT challenges and adopt new-age technologies that would help redefine the future of IoT and engineering in India.”
