Program Overview

Information & Communication Technology (ICT) embodies the convergence of Computer and Communication systems and has obtained wide acceptance as a distinct discipline. ICT is considered to be a discipline dealing with accessing, storage, processing, transmission, reception and display of information, primarily using digital systems and techniques. The curriculum in the B.Tech (ICT) program tries to address the optimized convergence of existing Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) as well as Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) disciplines by identifying the broad areas of performance capabilities. It is also expected that B.Tech (ICT) graduates would enjoy a special niche only if they have certain performance capabilities not found in conventional CSE and/or ECE graduates.

Computational Science is concerned with constructing mathematical models, simulating and quantitative analysis techniques, and using computers to analyze and solve scientific problems with applications in engineering and social sciences. In Computational Science, unlike the traditional theoretical and experimental approaches, scientists and engineers gain understanding mainly through the analysis of mathematical models implemented on computers. Typically, these models require massive amounts of calculations and are often executed on high performance computing backbone consisting of supercomputers or distributed computing or several inter-connected clusters of workstations and personal computers. The curriculum in B Tech (Honours in ICT with minor in Computational Science) aims to provide expertise to the students in techniques involved in modelling and simulation of complex and large scale systems, implementation on computers through parallel and high performance computing techniques and finally analysis and visualization of these large scale data sets. Further details of the program are available at http://www.daiict.ac.in/daiict/academics/ug/btech_cs_home.html

To complete the Computational Science Program successfully, the students have to take additional 18-24 credits worth of courses besides the usual ICT courses. The student must obtain a minimum CPI of 6.5 after completion of third Semester to continue in the program failing which she/he will be moved to the B.Tech (ICT) Program. The students who have obtained a CPI of 7.5 and above may apply at the end of the third Semester for transfer to the B.Tech (Computational Science) Program and the transfer will be granted only subject to availability of seats and in descending order from the highest CPI obtained.
