Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee is collaborating with the Mehta Family Foundation (MFF), USA, to establish the Mehta Family School of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. The two organisations have signed a MoU during a virtual event on 27th September 2021.
Under this collaboration, the new institute will offer Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral degree programs. It will welcome its first cohort of Bachelor’s degree students in September 2022. The institute aims to develop new and skilled manpower in the areas of data science and artificial intelligence along with an objective to empower existing manpower by offering focused training and certifications in these fields.
The institute will be housed in a new dedicated building at the IIT Roorkee campus developed with the support provided by MFF. In addition to the infrastructure, renowned experts in the field of AI will actively participate in designing the curriculum, faculty recruitment, monitoring and suggesting new research ideas to the Indian students of this school. These experts will also facilitate MFF’s student scholarships and faculty exchange programs with the aim to make this initiative a success.
The Mehta Family School of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence aims to provide technical support to national and international projects related to the growth of data science and artificial intelligence. Its other objectives include supporting government initiatives by seeding entrepreneurship and startups.
“Artificial Intelligence research and training is key to our future. AI technologies are critical for India and will have a significant social and economic impact in the coming years. This international academic collaboration between IIT Roorkee and MFF is a commendable effort to ensure that India continues on its innovation trajectory.” said K VijayRaghavan, principal scientific advisor, government of India.
“AI-driven technologies are rapidly transforming our world. Academic collaborations like this one between International faculty and IIT Roorkee will produce individuals poised to address such ongoing global challenges as climate change, resource sustainability, and security.” said Rahul Mehta, CEO, Mehta Family Foundation.
