It is really a great news for Technology students in Karnataka and also from all over India as from this academic year (2019-20), aspiring engineering students across the country will have the opportunity to study and make their dream career with the most in-demand courses across the World – Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML).
Artificial Intelligence (AI) Degree Course in India
The Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) in its recent Executive Council meeting on May 30, 2019 made a surprising announcement to introduce Bachelor of Engineering (BE) in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning with new batch commences from the academic year 2019-20. The eligibility for admission to this course remains the same as BE and B.Tech programs in VTU.
Currently in India there are a couple of colleges and universities have modules in Machine Vision, Robot Programming and Artificial Intelligence in the third semester of the Instrumentation engineering course. But, offering it as full fledged degree course in itself is a first in Visvesvaraya Technological University. However, in institutions like Indian Institute of Technology (IITs), these courses exist.
Machine Learning (ML) Degree Course in India
A senior official from VTU said, “AI is the need of the hour. There was a request from several engineering colleges to offer this course. Students have also been demanding this course since most industries are looking for graduates who have some knowledge of AI. Job seekers with AI degrees are well paid and in high demand. “
In the forthcoming counselling sessions which will be held by the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA), engineering students will have a new unique alternative to select Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) as a career option in the Bachelor of Engineering course from a few colleges that are offering them.

Technology geeks have respected this move by VTU to present AI and ML from this scholarly year. Manoj Kumar, a nerd stated, “This is a positive move from the college. Understudies will profit incredibly from graduating with best in class data on AI and ML. Everything today is AI-driven, from Google to Facebook. Computer based intelligence is a huge subject. We use AI in Data Analytics where, when we continue entering in a specific information, the framework makes an example out of it. There are utilizations like Image acknowledgment where the framework naturally perceives the individual and their subtleties. China as a nation is utilizing AI widely, particularly in Face acknowledgment innovation, with the goal that cameras can distinguish individuals and what they’re doing. Simulated intelligence is additionally utilized by Intelligence authorities,” he included.

Engineering students who are as of now seeking after modules in AI are excited to consider their new and cutting edge science. Danish, an instrumentation designing understudy says, “I am intending to do my Masters in AI and have just begun chipping away at my proposition in AI. At present this is a major thing. We examine how a robot can see an example and anticipate conduct. Be that as it may, at the propelled dimension, we can get the robot to settle on choices like an individual, in view of examples.”
Be that as it may, are schools prepared to deal with the course? Another nerd stated, “Schools need to contribute a great deal to set up a lab to do equity to these courses. We need top of the line innovation so understudies can become familiar with the subject. As far as instructors, educators with information of Machine Learning can deal with the subject. Universities can likewise take help from various associations before beginning these courses. Understudies can likewise complete a wide scope of online courses to procure additional degrees.”
However, officials said that a final decision on whether or not to offer the course in colleges will depend on the facilities available in the institution.
