M.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering (Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning)


D Y Patil University offers MTech in Computer Science and Engineering with specialization in Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML). AI/ML are two of the very close and fastest growing fields in contemporary scenario. AI is inteligence showcased by machines (computers and automation systems) in contrast to the natural inteligence of humans. The major goals of AI/ML is to achieve success in knowledge reasoning planning, machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, and robotics.





Assistance is provided through either Teaching Assistantship or Research Assistantship with a monthly stipend of 15, 000/- for an all-inclusive period of two years, subject to fulfilling the norms of the Institute. The assistance is provided only if the scholar is not receiving funding from any other source.



Opportunities in AI/ML


Companies like Flipkart, Amazon and Google are offering starting salaries of Rs. 12 - 18 lakhs per annum (LPM) for freshers with AI/ML skills. Companies are offering Rs. 50 LPM for someone with 5+ years of experience and top AI/ML employees enjoy salaries in range of Rs. 1 crore per annum. Salaries for AI/ML experts in USA can reach up to Rs. 5 crore per annum. Bengaluru, Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad have the highest number of AI/ML job openings. Number of startups and investments by Venture Capitalists in AI/ML space are growing exponentially. Total investment in AI/ML was about Rs. 4000 crore in 2010, while in 2015, it is about Rs. 25,000 crore. While there were only 100 active startups in AI in 2010, in 2017 there were about 1000 active startups. AI/ML field is growing at a rapid pace, promising higher salaries and better opportunities in future.
