Amrita’s B.Tech programme is primarily meant to promote competitive programming among the students. With the growth of applications in data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data analytics, competitive programming and problem solving is gaining importance among the schools students. Last year, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham opened the prestigious ACM ICPC Regionals held in December, for the high school students. Students from more than 50 schools across India participated in the contest. Top 30 school teams were invited to attend the onsite contest along with the participants of ACM ICPC.
B.Tech Honors programme in CSE is fully flexible and deserving students are eligible for the fee waiver from the second year. Flexibility is provided in terms of choosing the courses in each semester. The focus of the programme will be more in the courses in core computer science like Algorithms, Data Structures and Mathematics. The whole objective of the programme is to make the students win in the competitions like ACM ICPC, Google Codejam, Facebook HackerCup, etc. in the second year itself.
Evaluation is based on the problem solved in the online judges like CodeChef, HackerEarth, CodeForces, etc. Students will have to demonstrate the skills by participating in the live contests hosted by the above online judging platforms.
