The world of technology has always been evolving with new changes and innovations. This has also led to adapting renewed perspectives and pedagogy in engineering and technology education. There is a need for academic programs to keep up with these updates more than ever before. Future leaders in technology will be those who go beyond classroom education and compliment their fundamental knowledge with hands-on learning and application in the real world.
As technology transforms business and economy around the globe, companies are now looking for individuals with more in-depth understanding, breakthrough ideas, and inter-disciplinary skills required to keep up with trends and industry rapids. Hence, we place additional impetus on young students to opt for courses that make them market-competitive and industry-ready. As the whole world gets more and more digitalized, there will be more advanced adoption of newer technologies in internet-enabled smart devices and autonomous vehicles with Machine Learning tools, Artificial Intelligence, among others.
An ideal B. Tech program is all-encompassing with knowledge, skills, practical learning and hands-on experience of new technologies in the industry, to make you a sought after professional.
NMIMS Mukesh Patel School of Technology Management & Engineering (MPSTME) understands the market and its requirements way better than anyone else and is all set to launch 3 unique global programs in association with Virginia Tech (VT), USA, one of the top ranked universities in the US. These specialized programs will give the students pure insights into the evolving frontiers of technology.
Watch Dr. Sharad Mhaiskar, Pro Vice Chancellor, NMIMS in conversation with Ramananda Sengupta, Consulting Editor, Outlook, as they discuss the fallout and implications of this pandemic on higher education, and whether the campus as we know it has changed forever.
Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) was established in 1981 by Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal (SVKM) to meet the growing demand for management education. In 2003, NMIMS was declared a ‘Deemed to be University’ under Section 3 of the UGC Act 1956. With a dream of fulfilling the requirement of both Engineering and Management, Mukesh Patel School of Technology Management & Engineering (MPSTME) was established in 2006 as a constituent school of SVKM’s NMIMS (deemed-to-be) University.
Catering to the trends in technology and the amalgamation of technology and management, Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) has developed some unique, first-of-its-kind programs like:
- Dual Degree program MBA Tech. (B.Tech. + MBA Tech.)
- B.Tech. in Data Science, Artificial Intelligence or Cyber Security in academic collaboration with VT, USA
- 1 Unique Global Initiative with Virginia Tech, USA where students can get:
B.Tech. Computer Science with specialisation in Data Science NMIMS, India
BS Cybersecurity Management and Analytics Virginia Tech, USA
MS Business. Administration with Business Analytics Virginia Tech, USA
- B.Tech. (Hons.) in collaboration with industry leaders like TCS, IBM & Coursera.
The dual-degree program is the integration of engineering with management. The degree is carefully created and curated for the global marketplace, and the B. Tech + MBA integrated program will train students on core Engineering alongside Business Management. This integration is helpful in saving a whole academic year for students who want to pursue an MBA degree post their B. Tech.
MPSTME’s programs such as B.Tech. in Data Science, Artificial Intelligence or Cyber Security are designed in collaboration with Virginia Tech, US.
