International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad

Undergraduate Engineering Entrance Examination (UGEE)

Admissions will be based on performance in an entrance examination and an interview, both conducted by IIIT-H. The exam is to be held on April across multiple cities.

Programmes Offered

  1. [CLD] Bachelor Of Technology (B. Tech.) in Computer Science (CS) and Master Of Science (MS) in Computational Linguistics (CL) by Research
  2. [CND] Bachelor Of Technology (B. Tech.) in Computer Science (CS) and Master Of Science (MS) in Computational Natural Sciences (CNS) by Research

B.Tech in Computer Science and MS by Research in Computational Linguistics (5 year Dual Degree)

Computational Linguistics (CL) 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 language. For example, if a query 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. A search engine of the future is likely to use such a technology.

There is a great emphasis today on machine learning where the machine learns from real life language data. Consequently, the field is close to both Linguistics as well as Artificial Intelligence.

If you have a fascination for scientific study of natural language and combining it with computer science., this area is for you. The dual-degree programme will give you a strong grounding in both Computer Science and Linguistics, and will prepare you for academic research as well as industry research jobs in Computational Linguistics.

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

. 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.
