RVCE-Master of Technology in Information Technology
The M.Tech. Program in Information Technology (MIT) was established in the year 2007 with an intake of 18 students. M.Tech. in Information Technology is a full time program with well established infrastructure and State of the art computing facilities. The Student-Teacher ratio of 17:1 is being maintained consistently over the years. Students are encouraged to work on interdisciplinary R&D, consultancy and entrepreneurial activities. The establishment of Labs with industry partner LDRA, CISCO, WiC, NVidia has enabled students to work on Software Testing and Quality Assurance under able guidance. Students get hands-on experience with modern engineering tools relevant to their courses using Opensource technology enabled labs in domains of Advanced Data Engineering, Cyber-Security, etc.
The M.Tech. program provides opportunities for the students to pursue internship in well known companies such as CISCO, WIPRO, CLOUDERA, PHILIPS, UNISYS, ROBERT BOSCH, ATONARP, NOKIA, IBM, AMERE VEHICLES PVT. LTD. and MICROCHIP. Students get enhanced placement opportunities in advanced ICT technologies such as Mobile Domain and Social Media, Mobility Analytics and Cloud (SMAC). The alumni are employed in various Public, Private and Educational sectors.
The students have been offered with internship and full time placement. Highest Pay Package is above 20 Lakhs per annum.
The M.Tech. program offers curriculum with focus on research areas and electives are on par with industry requirements. The program offers core subjects such as Cyber Security & Digital Forensics, Advanced Data Structures & Algorithms, Advanced Data Engineering, Big Data Science & Analytics, Internet Of Things & Cloud Computing, etc,. The M.Tech. students get an opportunity to involve in co-curricular activities by attending Hackathons on latest technologies like Data Science with industry collaboration, Technical Seminars by industry experts, Webinars on course related topics from IEEE, Hands-on Workshops. Students are encouraged to take up Skill test – pre-placement activity in association with Coding Club of RVCE, present papers in conferences, enroll for ICT enabled MOOC courses, etc as well as exhibit their talent in extra-curricular activities leading to holistic development.
ICT ENABLED TEACHING LEARNING
Along with Chalk-and Talk mode, the department uses blended learning instructional strategies to focus on the student engagement and active learning. MOOCs from NPTEL, Coursera, Udacity, Udemy are learnt as part of supplemental learning. Project based learning is adopted in most of the courses through self-study and assignments. Quizzes are conducted online to prepare the students to face competitive online exams. Open source software frameworks are utilized for conducting laboratory experiments. For simulation based practice sessions, videos of step wise execution process have been recorded by the faculty and shared with students. Practice sessions for various programming labs are conducted through online coding platforms like hackerearth, hackerrank and so on, to prepare students for competitive programming challenges and placements. Tools and platforms like CANVAS, Google classroom, Github, Gitbook, Codelabs, Moodle, Android Studio, Star UML, Lucid ERD, Anaconda platform, Jupyter notebook, Prometheus, Proteus Design Suite and so on are used in the teaching learning process. Online classrooms, internship projects evaluations are conducted through web conferencing platforms like Zoom, Cisco Webex, GotoMeeting, Skype, Google Meet.
