Course Overview

1.What is Artificial Intelligence and Data Science specialization in Engineering?
Artificial Intelligence and Data Science is a new branch of study that deals with scientific methodologies, processes, and techniques drawn from different domains like statistics, cognitive science, and computing and information science to extract knowledge from structured data and unstructured data. This knowledge is applied in making various intelligent decisions in business applications. Artificial Intelligence and data science engineering colleges in Bangalore focus on collecting, categorizing, strategizing, analyzing and interpreting data. It is a specialised branch that deals with the development of data-driven solutions, data visualization tools and techniques to analyse big data. It also incorporates the concepts of machine learning and deep learning model building for solving various computational and real-world problems.

2. Who should study Artificial Intelligence and Data science study?
AI and Data science is the current trend ruling the business world and it is highly paid career now. Artificial Intelligence and data science is a suitable course for those who would like to develop various intelligent business solutions. Big data solutions has changed the way how business models to be built and run. This study contributes much in manufacturing, e-commerce, banking, finance, transport and healthcare industry.

4.What are the career opportunities after the completion of this course?/What will I do once I graduate?
AI and DS graduates will be able to design, and develop intelligent business applications to solve various industrial problems. They use the latest tools and open source technologies to recommend the required solutions. They can figure out how to evaluate the ethical, legitimate, proficient and social standards of engineering knowledge and practices. These graduates can also exhibit their domain knowledge in data handling, knowledge extraction, mobile and distributed application development, intelligence web/ecommerce development, database administration, computer hardware, networking, education and training and decision support systems using AI and Data Science tools and techniques.

5.What is Artificial Intelligence and Data Science?
Artificial intelligence (AI) and data science are two very different things. Artificial intelligence is the process of creating machines that can think like humans, or at least mimic human behavior in some way. Data science is the application of techniques from statistics, mathematics, computer programming and other fields to solve real-world problems using information technology. Artificial intelligence (AI) is a term used to describe the simulation of human intelligence processes in machines. It typically involves sophisticated algorithms that enable computers to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition and decision making. However, AI can be applied in many more areas than just these three specific processes. Data science is a field of knowledge which applies advanced statistical and mathematical techniques to large datasets in order to extract knowledge from them that was previously not there. This data can be structured like a spreadsheet but can also be unstructured like text or video data.

Evaluation Criteria


  • The Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) is prescribed for maximum of 40 marks. Marks prescribed for test shall be 30 and for assignment is 10. The CIE marks for test in a theory Course shall be based on three tests and generally conducted at the end of fifth, tenth and fourteenth week of each semester. Each test shall be conducted for a maximum of 30 marks and the final marks shall be the average of three tests. However, to support slow learners, improvement tests will be carried out to help them gain the average. The remaining 10 marks shall be awarded based on the evaluation of Assignments/ Unit Tests/ written quizzes that support to cover some of the Course/programme outcomes. Final CIE marks awarded shall be the sum of test marks and assignment marks making a maximum of 40 marks.
  • In the case of Practical, the CIE marks shall be based on the laboratory journals/records (30 marks for continuous evaluation based on conduct of experiment, viva and report writing and one practical test (10 marks) to be conducted at the end of the semester.
  • The IA marks in the case of Mini Project (in 5th Semester), Projects and Seminars in the final year shall be based on the evaluation at the end of 8th semester.


  • Assignments are given to students after completion of each unit of the syllabus and comprehensively cover all of the important aspects of each topic in a particular unit.
  • Completing the prescribed assignments will greatly help students prepare for the internal assessments and the final exams. All the assignments will be evaluated and based on the performance of the students marks will be awarded for each course.
