IIIT-H (UGEE) Admissions-2019

About UGEE (Undergraduate Engineering Entrance Examination)

This mode is for admission to the following dual degree programmes:
ECD    CSD    CLD    CND    CHD

Graduates of the Dual degree (Bachelors and Masters ) programmes earn two degrees. The Masters degree requires completion of a research thesis.

The dual degree programme prepares students for research and jobs in their area of interest. The duration of the programme is 5-years.

Programmes Abbreviation

B Tech and Master of Science in Electronics and Communication Engineering by Research (ECD) Seats-25

This is a five year integrated course offered to meritorious undergraduate students, at the end of the third year. Students enroll for extra courses at the end of their third year and complete the first year equivalent of the MS by Research programme, while in the final year of the undergraduate programme. Dual Degree option enables students to acquire two degrees – B Tech (Hons) and MS by Research by successfully defending MS thesis. The normal duration for dual degree programme is five years.

B.Tech in Computer Science and Master of Science in Computational Linguistics by Research (5 year Dual Degree) CLD Seats-15

With the advancement of technologies today, Computational Linguistics (CL) is turning out to be a major field of study, research and developing technologies for future.  Computational linguistics stands at the intersection of Computer Science and Linguistics. The field deals with understanding and developing computational theories of human language. Such theories allow us to understand the structure of language and build computer software that can process human language For example, if a query in English, Hindi or Telugu can be processed (that is, analyzed and understood) by the machine, then it can try to find an answer from a given database or from a set of documents. The applications of this would be in the area of machine translation, dialogue managers and more intelligent search engines.

The transdisciplinary 5 year Dual Degree Program in Computational Linguistics at IIIT, Hyderabad is designed such that the synthesis of  knowledge from the two disciplines – Computer Science and Linguistics – happens earlier and thus in a better way. The Program aims to ready people who would develop computational models for machines to process human languages.

 

Brief Objectives of the Program

The Dual Degree Program in Computational Linguistics aims to prepare

  • Experts who will lead research in the area of computational linguistics.

  • Professionals who will work towards developing man – man and man-machine communication systems which includes natural language processing and natural language understanding.

  • Scholars who would probe theretical questions in linguistics from a totally new perspective, thus, contributing to the field in newer ways

B.Tech in Computer Science and Master of Science in Computational Natural Sciences by Research (5 year Dual Degree) CND, Seats-15

1.About the Program: This program is about science – but it is not limited to the way science is traditionally practiced. This is also about computer science and IT – but it is not about creating IT professionals. It is about the science that is emerging in the interface of the information revolution and the challenges posed by some of the grave issues and problems in today’s world. From newer ways of acquisition and management of multivariate data on complex natural systems to newer ways of deriving knowledge from the data using novel methods of data visualization and computational simulation, the world today needs a different breed of enabled scientists who are ready to navigate this interface. This program is for those who have the inner desire to take on these grand scientific challenges.

2.Brief Objectives of the Program:Training young minds for high-quality education both in computer science and in emerging areas in computational natural sciences and eventually to ‘Computational Thinking’ empowered research in natural sciences;

Computers and its various incarnations are transforming our world in ways that are unprecedented, and even unintended. Comparable historical parallels are, perhaps, the emergence of the printing press and, some centuries later, the spread of hydrocarbon fuels like coal and oil; but perhaps computers are changing the world at a much faster rate. The academic competencies required to comprehend such fundamental transformations will not be found either within standard science and technology departments, nor within those of the humanities and social sciences. Both of these focus on one side of this complex phenomenon.

 

Objectives of the Programme: This programme aims to produce a new type of student – equally well trained in computer and social sciences – who can bridge the divide between technology and the human sciences.

The main objective of the course is to build social science and humanities graduates who are proficient in computer sciences, with cross-disciplinary research capabilities which compare with the best in the world. This will be achieved by training students in the rigorous methods and deep understanding of the human sciences, while at the same time equipping them with state-of-the-art computer science knowledge.

IMPORTANT DATES

Application Start Date – 11th Feb 2019

Application closing date – 23rd Mar 2019

Exam Date-28th April, 2019

Applicants in this mode need to appear for a computer-based, undergraduate entrance examination (UGEE) both conducted by IIIT-H. UGEE will be held on 28th April, 2019 across multiple cities . This exam has two sections: Subject

Proficiency Test (SUPR) and Research Aptitude Test (REAP)

Candidates shortlisted from this exam will have to clear an interview to gain admission. The decision on final offer of admission is solely based on the interview performance.

 

What do I need to do to apply?

You need to register online and fill an application form to appear for the exam by the announced deadline.

a) SUPR — Subject Proficiency test for 60 minutes.

b) REAP — Research Aptitude Test for 120 minutes.

Application Fee : INR 2,000 (Non-refundable)

 

How do I prepare for UGEE ?

The syllabi for SUPR and REAP are based on XI and XII level of Physics/Maths/Chemistry (CBSE and most state syllabi).

However, REAP will have an emphasis on testing critical and creative thinking abilities of an applicant.

Am I eligible ?

Class 12 or equivalent qualifying Examination with an aggregate of 60% marks in Maths, Physics and Chemistry.
