IIT Madras and The University of Birmingham have opened applications for their new Joint Masters programmes in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence – the first such education partnership between any IIT and a UK Russell Group University.
Successful applicants will study in Birmingham and Chennai before receiving a single degree awarded by both universities. They will also carry out a substantial research project, giving them an opportunity to apply their knowledge to real world challenges.
The joint programmes will be delivered at the campuses of both institutions and mutual recognition of academic credits issued by each university will lead to the award of a single degree certificate. Students will benefit from academic flexibility to learn and work in current areas that are going to define the future of global engineering and technology.
This partnership offers a competitive overall fee for students with the UK study element charged at domestic fee levels rather than the usual international level.
The programmes offer flexibility to students to spend either five months or twelve months in the UK, concluding the programme in Birmingham or Chennai. The programmes will begin in July 2023 when students would commence their studies at IIT Madras and complete several modules before beginning a short industrial placement.
The Program is open for students with a bachelor’s degree in Science or Engineering with over 60% marks. Students with over 75% marks in English in Class 12 from CBSE / CISCE/ West Bengal board and over 80% marks in English in Class 12 from other Indian state boards are exempted from submitting a TOEFL / IELTS / PTE academic test. If the medium of instruction in undergraduate is not English, then the students must provide a score from the tests above. Scores are mandatory on the enrolment date of the program, not the arrival date to the UK for the part of the program studied at Birmingham.
The last date to apply is June 11. Further information on how to apply can be found at https://ge.iitm.ac.in/birmingham/.
