B.Tech in Computer Science and Master of Science in Computing & Human Sciences by Research
To host pioneering research at the confluence of computing and the human sciences and thus become a global leader in providing new perspectives and methodologies to humanities and social science disciplines, while incubating innovative solutions to problems of knowledge and practice in the wider world.
- Pioneer: To develop pedagogy that produces researchers who are equally proficient in information technology as well as in the human sciences, thus creating fundamental new knowledge.
- Confluence: To promote research that bridges the epistemological and methodological gap between computer science and the humanities and social sciences, helping both reduce their distance and develop inter-disciplinarity.
- Knowledge: To become the intellectual centre for studying digital humanities and computational social sciences, attracting the best students and scholars.
- Wisdom: To nurture scholars who are competent in their profession, creative in solving real-world problems, and imbibe professional ethics with a caring attitude towards society.
