[Professor Mark Lee, University of Birmingham] The programme is an MSc in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence between IIT Madras and the University of Birmingham. It's aimed to give a global perspective on data science and cutting edge research in artificial intelligence.
[Professor Balarama Ravindran, Indian Institute of Technology Madras] Anybody with a science or engineering background who knows enough mathematics can join this programme. The programme is tailored in such a way that they'll bring the people up to speed, so that they are at the point of graduation at the same level as others students.
[Professor Mark Lee, University of Birmingham] With perspectives from both universities, also industrial engagement, and research.
[Professor Balarama Ravindran, Indian Institute of Technology Madras] Students get to immerse themselves in the IIT Madras education environment, as well as the University of Birmingham, and complete significant portions of their coursework at both of the places.
At the end of the first semester, the student is expected to spend some time with industry.
And later on, for the full thesis that is part of the programme, again, students are encouraged to approach industries and work with industries on problems that are of direct relevance and application.
