After successful completion of fundamental courses, a student will take up core courses in physics. In addition to the core physics subjects, the students can acquire additional expertise in special area of physics in the final year. During this period, all possible opportunities will be created for close interaction with research institutes and industries so as to provide high level training. After successful completion of the academic requirements students are awarded a Master of Science degree.

Thus the main objective of this program is to prepare the younger generation to cope with the emerging scenario in the top level industries, academic and research institutions.

M. Tech. in Communication Engineering & Signal Processing

Communication Engineering and Signal Processing applications have been rapidly growing and evolving over the past few years. Ubiquitous communication is becoming a necessity for the society. The proposed M.Tech. Program is designed to offer not only in-depth theoretical knowledge in the area of Communications, Signal Processing, and Wireless Networks, but also system modeling and integration aspects emphasizing overall system behavioral studies in a laboratory. Such courses are unique and fall in-line with the requirements from the industries. At the end of the programme the student achieves the ability to identify pressing research issues and research directions in Communications, Signal Processing, and Wireless Networks.

M. Tech. in VLSI Design (Offered at Bangalore & Coimbatore Campus)

Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) Circuit Design is the process of designing a large computer chip (more specifically, an integrated circuit, or IC), using computer-aided design (CAD) tools on a workstation or a personal computer (PC). The course demands learning the principles of VLSI design, designing and fabricating the state- of-the-art VLSI chips, understanding the complete design flow and expertise to design CMOS chips for industrial requirements. The curriculum focuses on employing hierarchical design methods and understanding the design issues at the various levels of hierarchy. Students are exposed to various design softwares in this programme. Also, they learn to design, simulate, implement and test complex digital systems using FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays). The main objectives of this course are to analyze the electrical and design characteristics of transistors, gates and to study the issues and methodologies involved in the integration of these devices into complex high-performance systems.

M. Tech. in Computer Science & Engineering (Offered at Bangalore & Coimbatore Campus)

This M. Tech. programme aims at preparing the students to take up application, research and development activities in core and some emerging areas in Computer Science, with focus on AI and AI related applications in a distributed computing environment. The programme includes advanced level courses in Computer Architecture, Networking, Algorithms, Data Bases, Distributed Computing and Computational Intelligence. This programme will provide a strong basis in Computer Science for those who opt for a serious career in industry.

The purpose of the programme is to generate human resources capable of supporting R & D activities in critical areas like automated, secured, monitoring and surveillance systems, medical diagnostics, intelligent monitoring systems etc. The diversity of platforms available for implementation and the huge volume of data available for analysis, knowledge mining activities associated with biological systems, medical field, data related to climate changes etc. attract employment opportunities.

M.Tech./MS in Wireless Networks and Distributed Systems (VU, Netherlands)

The program presents the prospective students with an opportunity to pursue a dual degree of Master in Technology from Amrita University and Master of Science from Vrije University, Amsterdam, Netherlands. As a part of the academic exercise, students spend a year at Amrita pursuing an M. Tech. and visit the Vrije University, Amsterdam to complete an M. S. in Parallel and Distributed Systems. At VU, education and research are closely intertwined. High quality teaching and cutting edge research has given the university a great deal of recognition, enabling to attract prominent scientists from both Netherlands and abroad. They visit industries around and have a cross cultural engagement. This distinguishes the program at Amrita when compared to the best schools in India.

M. Tech. in Automotive Engineering

This program is designed to enable the graduate engineers with appropriate background to specialize their careers towards Automotive Engineering and Automotive System Design. The objective of the program is to strengthen the ability of the student to solve complex technological problems and to develop skills that will prepare the student to work effectively in close collaboration within a multidisciplinary team and facilitates to develop R&D competency. Besides mandatory core courses, a number of electives are offered to the students to suit their acumen in the emerging areas and are designed by professionals from the Industry. The students are periodically assessed by experts and they are also motivated to take up internship in the Industry. Since India is being recognized as a hub for the global players, this course is committed to produce automotive engineers with creative capabilities and calibre to solve challenging problems and is in tune with the objectives envisioned by the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

M. Tech. in Cyber Security

Cyber security is a very fast moving field. A program in security that aims to be on the forefront has to necessarily have a companion-advanced program that has a good balance between theoretical and practical aspects, analytical methods and system architectures, academic ideas and industry practices. The Center for Cyber Security was identified by TIFAC (Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India) as a CORE in Cyber Security in September 2005. The TIFAC-CORE in Cyber Security gives significant thrust to the frontier areas of Cyber Security, including technology, practice, management, and policy issues. Research areas of the TIFAC-CORE in Cyber Security are organized into four broad categories, namely: Enterprise Wide Security, Data Center Security, Language-Based Security, and Hardware and Embedded Systems Security. These categories represent four horizontal layers of security in a typical information system /network that a practitioner would normally encounter in today’s industrial settings and corporate environments. CORE also focuses on theory and practice of authentication, authorization, and access control techniques.

This M. Tech program provides a good blend of theory and industrial practice; necessary theoretical background, insight into general and technical aspects of Cyber Security, analytical methods and management practices in the field of Cyber Security are the areas receiving detailed attention. It aims at moulding the student into an Information Security professional. Practicing industry professionals and enterprise experts with little or no knowledge in Cyber Security too can benefit from this program.
