UPES, a NAAC ‘A’ grade accredited multidisciplinary university has introduced new undergraduate and post graduate programs in its school of Engineering and School of Computer Science from the academic session 2021. The new programs offer specializations in advanced and future-focused technologies with a mix of various minor electives. The university has implemented these programs to equip students with the right skills and expertise, making them more confident and ready for industry 4.0.
New specializations and integrated programs by School of Engineering
UPES School of Engineering has introduced two new UG programs- B.Tech in Advance Materials & Nano Technology with two specialisations in Smart Material and Computational Material Science and B.Tech in Renewable & Sustainable Energy Engineering with two specialisations in Energy Storage Systems and Waste to Energy. Along with the core subjects and specialisation, students from both these programs can opt for minor electives in AI& ML, Blockchain, Bio-mimetics, Space Engineering, Astronomy & Astrophysics, Reclaim engineering, Data Science to name a few.
School of Engineering has also introduced integrated 4 year B.SC-M.SC programs. The integrated B.Sc-M.Sc Chemistry program has specialisations in Analytical Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. B.Sc-M.Sc Physics program offers specialisations in Material Science and Electronics. B.Sc-M.Sc Mathematics has specialisations in Applied Mathematics and Pure Mathematics.
Commenting on the launch of the new programs, Prof. Gurvinder Virk, Dean, School of Engineering says, “The BTech (Advanced Materials & Nano technology) course has been formulated to meet the challenging global demand in designing and producing better materials with multifunctional and smart features such as sensing, actuation etc for manufacturing modern products and BTech (Renewable and Sustainable Energy Engineering) course has been developed in line with the growing importance of energy in our lives and its huge relevance to global sustainable issues as countries contend with the increasingly devastating impacts of climate change. In view of the expansions in these novel technological areas and help meet the industrial need, UPES is offering specialisations in these two programs to equip students with the knowledge to develop solutions for real-world problems.
New specialisations by School of Computer Science
UPES School of Computer Science has launched Master of Computer Application (MCA), a 2-year PG program offering 4 specialisations for a student to choose from – MCA- Internet of Things, MCA- Banking, Financial Services and Insurance, MCA- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and MCA-Cyber Security and Forensics. Along with teaching students’ essential concepts such as data structures, algorithms, OOPS concepts using Java and python, software engineering etc, the program will also teach students concepts of data science, informatics, robotics, banking analytics, law practices and procedures and more.
UPES is a multi-disciplinary university and offers specialized under-graduate and post-graduate programs through its seven schools- School of Engineering, School of Computer Science, School of Design, School of Law, School of Business, School of Health Sciences, and School of Modern Media.
