Knowledge centre and incubation park on the anvil in IIT-Hyd phase 2

Students seeking admission at Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad (IIT-H) can look forward to more than just studying at a premier institute.
As part of its next phase of expansion, the IIT-H has plans to construct a new sports and culture complex,
technology incubation park, and research centre among others amenities by 2022.

IIT-H, which is set to hold its open day for qualified candidates keen to seek admission on June 21-22, targets to double its student strength to 5,000 from the present 2,500 by 2022. The phase 2 of campus development construction at Kandi, Sangareddy, which commenced in March, is an Indo-Japan collaboration.
“The technology incubation and technology research park will provide an incubation centre intended to provide space for start- ups consisting of large re-configurable spaces and provisions for including wet and dry labs. Major features of the research park includes a laboratory complex comprising seven different sized square footprint blocks interconnected with covered corridors,” read description of the phase 2 campus development project shared by IIT-H

“The sports complex will comprise indoor sports courts, locker rooms, sauna facility, and indoor games facilities. External development comprises 400m track and field facility with a soccer field, cricket field and a basketball court,” read the description.

All the buildings coming in phase 2 are designed by Japanese architects professor Ohno and professor Kawazoe of the University of Tokyo, Japan. “All the buildings are designed to meet GRIHA green buildings rating 4,” said Sireesh Saride, dean (planning), IIT-H. “Conservation of soil, water and energy are main philosophy behind these buildings. These buildings are designed as energy efficient and will require less amount of artificial air and ventilation.”

Construction of phase 2 is likely to conclude by end of financial year 2022 (36 months). While it will enhance accommodation of students by 2,500, hostels are a part of a different package, which will be covered within the project.

On 'course': BTech in artificial intelligence makes IIT-Hyderabad a hot pick for students


HYDERABAD: The newly-introduced course of BTech in artificial intelligence (AI) at the Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad, (IIT-H) has emerged as a hot pick among qualified candidates.

For the first time, 60 of the top 1,000 rankers across India chose IIT-H over others. “We had expected this trend of many students choosing IIT-H as the quality of education is now on par with the older IITs.

Flexibility and dynamic programmes being offered in newer technologies is making students prefer IIT-H,” said Prof UB Desai,director of IIT-H, adding that this year students from other disciplines will also get to have an opportunity to learn minor in AI On 'course': BTech in artificial intelligence makes IIT-Hyderabad a hot pick for students

IIT-H became the first institute in the country to offer an exclusive BTech in AI course from the academic year 2019-20 with an intake of 20 students. The opening rank for the new course was 478 in general category and it closed at
657. The opening rank for CSE also saw a massive improvement from last year’s 443 to 203 this year.

“What surprised us was that many students this year chose BTech course in AI as against regular CSE despite having a better score. It’s a sign that students have realised the potential of AI as a career-prospect considering the scope of research and jobs in the industry,” said Vineeth N Balasubramanian, associate professor, department of computer science engineering, IIT-H.

In the first phase, 319 seats were allotted at IIT-H, up from last year’s 294 with most of the top rankers opting for electrical, mechanical and civil engineering apart from CSE. According to the figures, 49 seats were allotted in computer science engineering, 48 in mechanical engineering, 47 in electrical engineering , 40 in civil engineering and 35 in chemical engineering among others.

Aiming to fill 14% of the seats in every course with girls, 50 seats were allotted to female candidates with an opening rank of 1,026 in computer science and closing rank of 1,586 in computer science.

FlintoClass Expands Its Footprints In Hyderabad

Chennai-based startup FlintoClass is gearing up to expand the reach of its early learning model in Hyderabad.

It has spent around $3 million in research and development centre, for researching, testing and categorising on this product. Once the pilot project starts running successfully in Hyderabad, the platform will spread its comprehensive, low-cost preschool system to other cities of Telangana to become the No.1 preschool system in the state.

At present, the city of Hyderabad can foresee the launch of 300 preschools facilitated by FlintoClass this year, which will then multiply to more than 1000 by the next two years.

It is now venturing into the growing preschool market of Hyderabad, which is witnessing a lack of quality early educators to manage the delivery of early learning program, the weak brand identity of independent preschools, lack of differentiation from competitors/ preschool chains and lack of consistency.

As part of this pilot project, Flinto will be targeting the existing pre-schools of Hyderabad to revamp their pre-school module and also help the aspiring preschool owners in launching the exclusively new ones. Its plug and play model requires no new installations and smoothly fits into the existing set-up.

Arunprasad Durairaj, CEO and Co-Founder, Flinto Learning Solutions, said, “Considering the rapid urbanization & modernization in Hyderabad, parents are now aspiring for high-quality education for their children. We want to tap this opportunity by introducing FlintoClass in all the existing and upcoming preschools of Telangana to promote high-quality early development of their children and gradually spread our wings and make early education accessible to other parts of the country and the world.”

Hyderabad an ideal destination for ‘Study In India’ programme

The Central government’s thrust on ‘Study In India’ programme’ programme to draw more international students to India is likely to benefit Hyderabad, which already is a favoured destination for students from Middle East and African countries.

The 100-year-old Osmania University is a big attraction, while the city has some international universities that suit the needs of international students like the English and Foreign Languages University (EFLU), University of Hyderabad (UoH) and scores of engineering colleges that admit foreign students.

‘Conducive atmosphere’

“Third world countries consider India for learning English courses at highly economical prices, and I am sure the Central government understands the conducive environment here,” says EFLU Vice-Chancellor E. Suresh Kumar.

“Added to the quality of courses, Hyderabad is the best in terms of weather conditions and the cost of living, which is a big factor for any foreign student,” Mr. Kumar points out.

The EFLU has over 200 foreign students from 85 countries pursuing various courses and it has the scope to increase the numbers if the government policies are bit more liberal.

“It is not just English; EFLU teaches all the popular foreign languages, which itself is a great seller for foreign students,” Mr. Kumar agrees.

Unlike other cities in the country, Hyderabad’s cosmopolitan atmosphere with the vibrant Muslim culture is a big draw for the Muslim countries in the Middle East and Muslim students from Africa.

“They find Hyderabad quite easy to accommodate as they can relate themselves to the lifestyle and the faith they practice,” agrees G.B. Reddy, former Director of University Foreign Relations Office (UFRO), Osmania University.

As of now around 4,000 foreign students are pursuing various courses — from under graduation to research — and this can be increased with bettering the hostel facilities and liberalising the visa norms. Students from some African countries are refused visas due to their internal conflicts despite the huge interest shown for admissions at OU.

Recent rise in conflicts in some Middle East countries has also affected the admissions a bit, but still the interest is enormous.

One of the top varsities in the country, UoH too has a Study In India programme, which started way back in 1998. Though initially it was for US students on exchange, it has been changed to admit students from other countries as well.

“Now students want to pursue regular programmes as well at HCU and we admit 50 foreign students,” says B. Ananta Krishnan, Director, SIP, UoH.

The HCU has a provision to increase 15% additional seats over the approved number to cater to foreign students and the new initiative of the government should open doors to more foreign students, Mr. Anantha Krishnan says. “Hyderabad is a safe city and historically it has always welcomed outsiders.”

The city is widely known outside India because of the Telugu software engineers across the globe and the robust IT sector has put Hyderabad on the world map.

“It is definitely an advantage for foreign students while considering India,” agrees T. Papi Reddy, chairman of Telangana State Council of Higher Education.

Moreover, top educational institutions like the Indian School of Business (ISB); IIT-Hyderabad; IIIT-Hyderabad and research institutions like the IICT, CCMB, DRDO have made Hyderabad a knowledge hub.

University of Hyderabad bags Institution of Eminence honour

HYDERABAD: The University of Hyderabad is officially an Institution of Eminence (IoH). The HRD Ministry on Thursday awarded the IoE status to five public institutes, including Delhi University, Banaras Hindu University, IIT Madras and IIT Kharagpur, apart from UoH. The decision was taken following a recommendation made by the University Grants Commission (UGC) on the advice of an Empowered Expert Committee.

UoH is the only varsity from the Telugu states to make it to the elite club. Andhra University failed to make the cut, along with others, such as, Aligarh Muslim University, Ashoka University, Azim Premji University, Tezpur University, Punjab University and Indian Institute of Public Health in Gandhinagar.

So far, 16 institutions have been recognised as IoEs. State government’s confirmation and commitment is awaited in the case of four other institutions.

Granting the IoE tag is part of a larger scheme of the HRD Ministry, which announced in 2018 that 20 IoEs — 10 public and 10 private — would enjoy complete academic and administrative autonomy.Accordingly, the government will provide funding of up to `1,000 crore to public institutions with the IoE tag. In case of the private institutions proposed as Institutions of Eminence, there will be no financial support. However, they will be entitled to more autonomy under the special category of ‘Deemed University’. The IoEs will also not be subjected to inspection by the UGC.

Mahindra Ecole Centrale engineering college launches its Supercomputer Lab

The Supercomputer Laboratory is home to two of Mahindra Ecole Centrale centers of excellence namely artificial intelligence and 3D-experience

Mahindra Ecole Centrale (MEC), an international engineering college based at Hyderabad, launches its Supercomputer Lab. MEC has a strong research focus and several projects on artificial intelligence and deep learning are already underway at the campus. To address the requirements for faster computing performance and providing a robust platform for deep learning and analytics and multi-disciplinary engineering simulations, the MEC Supercomputer lab was created at the campus.

The Supercomputer Lab supports high-intensity computations both for Artificial Intelligence applications and for complex simulations in physical sciences and engineering covering different aspects of fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, electromagnetics, integrated and optimized engineering design, molecular physics, and related fields.

“To be a success in today’s rapidly evolving technological scenario, it is imperative that we expose our students with the latest technological advancements and get them to work on the best of products available globally. The MEC Supercomputer Lab comprises of the DGX-1 supercomputer platform that includes a complex stack of components and software including AI Deep Learning frameworks, libraries, and drivers. Our students will be trained on this platform that forms the base for most globally recognized initiatives”, says Dr. Yajulu Medury, Director, Mahindra Ecole Centrale.

The DGX-1 heart of the MEC Supercomputer Lab is reinforced with a number of CPU Servers that can be seamlessly scaled up in numbers. A fast Infiniband-based network connectivity is in the process of installation to connect these servers so that CPU-based parallelism can also be attained for simulations not attuned to GPU processing.

A Dassault-Systemes based 3D-Experience package is also being installed in this lab. This package is an overlay on a suite of software that includes CATIA, DELPHI and other related modules, and facilitates Augmented Reality – Virtual Reality based immersive experience. A set of 30 Workstations coupled with a Server are being installed and linked to the other platforms of this laboratory for the facilitation of the complete 3D-Experience package. This will enable the attainment of a 3D-Experience Centre of Excellence at this lab.

The Supercomputer Laboratory is home to two of MEC’s Centers of Excellence: Artificial Intelligence and 3D-Experience. At the core of this is of course, massive computing power, enabled by the DGX-1 Supercomputer, multiple powerful Servers, and a set of 30Workstations, all interconnected through an extremely fast data communication network. These co-located CoEs can themselves be the trigger for a new and unique experience in an Indian Research Institution, namely, the coupling of AI with the world of engineering in multiple new and creative ways of which visionaries can see possibilities that have yet to be manifested in the mundane world.
