Program Offered: 5 year Dual Degree B.Tech in Computer Science and MS by Research in Computational Linguistics
The International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H) is an Deemed University founded in 1998. A Governing Council consisting of eminent people from academia, industry and government presides over the governance of the institution. Some of the luminaries in the council are Prof. Raj Reddy (University Professor of Computer Science & Robotics, School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University, USA), Shri R. Chandrashekhar (President - NASSCOM), Shri S. Ramadorai (Vice Chairman - TCS), Prof. Ashok Jhunjhunwala (Professor - IIT Delhi) etc. IIIT-H is organized as research centres and labs, instead of the conventional departments, to facilitate inter-disciplinary research and a seamless flow of knowledge within the Institute. Students, even at the undergraduate level, get to participate in ongoing research and technology development - an opportunity unprecedented in India.
B.Tech in Computer Science and MS by Research in Computational Linguistics (5 year Dual Degree) (CLD in short) is a unique program offered by IIIT-H. 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. 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.
Admissions to CLD program is via a separate Entrance Exam UGEEE-CLD (IIITH) and Interview organized by IIIT-H. The exam is held in the month of April.
