M.Tech. Computer Science and Engineering

The M. Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) program equips a graduate engineer with analytical and problem-solving skills using advanced algorithms, the ability to conduct independent research in specialized domains of computer security, adapt to the evolutionary changes in computing, and learn the latest technology advancements.

Core focus areas include advanced data structures and algorithms, distributed database systems, and soft computing. Students can specialize in high-performance computing, advanced machine learning, the internet of things, and security.

Project-based study help students develop competencies in a broad spectrum of topics in artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analytics, internet of things, natural language processing, cloud computing, data mining, text mining, client-server application, web and mobile applications, cryptography, social network, software engineering, and wireless sensor networks.

Postgraduate programs at Silicon are designed and intended to provide deeper knowledge and insight into the specific field of study. However, Silicon encourages students to undertake interdisciplinary projects. It supports research and practice in such an initiative by assigning additional project guides from other departments to mentor the students.

Thanks to the academic and research excellence of Silicon and Prof. Manoj Kumar Pandia, my M.Tech. Supervisor, I published three conference articles during my M.Tech. I was motivated to join the Ph.D. program. I joined the Ph.D. program in the Department of CSE at NIT, Patna. After completion of my Ph.D, VIT Vellore hired me as an Assistant Professor.
