Latest Curriculum

This page contains the latest B.Tech curriculum applicable for students from the year 2022. To see the details for earlier batches, please see the 2017 curriculum.

The BTech CSE program strives to impart knowledge across the depth and breadth of Computer Science and Engineering. The curriculum is developed with a special emphasis on fundamentals and practical learning. The core courses are intended to prepare and motivate the students for a large pool of electives which covers several deep and state-of-the-art topics. The core courses are listed below.

Level 1 Level 2 Level 3
Introduction to Programming Discrete Mathematics, Foundations of Computing Systems, Foundations of Computing Systems Lab, Systems Programming, Data Structures and Algorithms, Data Structures and Algorithms Lab, Introduction to Artificial Intelligence, Design and Analysis of Algorithms, Theory of Computation, Computer Architecture, Computer Architecture Lab, Operating Systems, Operating Systems Lab, Compiler Design, Compiler Design Lab

A tentative set of program electives include (but not limited to) the following: Logic, Topics in Discrete Mathematics, Graph Theory and Combinatorics, Topics in Graph Theory, Probabilistic Method, Probability and Computing, Parameterized Algorithms, Approximation Algorithms, Combinatorial Optimization, Computational Complexity, Foundations of Data Science and Machine Learning, Coding Theory, Cryptography, Game Theory and Mechanism Design, Paradigms of Programming, Functional Programming, Parallel Programming, Computational Methods and Applications, Computer Networks, Database Management Systems, Compiler Optimizations and Program Analysis, Advanced Computer Architecture, Advanced Computer Architecture Lab, Embedded Systems, Synthesis of Digital Systems, PreSilicon Design Verification using Formal Property Verification, Software Engineering, Real Time Systems, System on Chip Design Lab, Artificial Intelligence for Cyber Security, Responsible Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data Lab, Information Retrieval, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision.

Suggestive Course plans

To guide the students towards arriving at a feasible ordering of courses, a course plan is proposed. Multiple variations of this plan are possible. For instance, a student may take fewer program electives than what is proposed in the plan if the total credit requirement for program electives is satisfied. Also, a student may choose to take two project courses one with 3 credits and the other with 6 credits instead of the proposed three 3-credit project courses.

The 7th PME course of 1-credit is mentioned in the course plan assuming that all other PME courses are 3 credits each. In practice, as PME courses may have varied credits, the number of PME courses is not important and it is only required that a student obtains at least 19 credits in total.
