Career Advantage




Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the machine-displayed intelligence that simulates human behavior or thinking and can be trained to solve specific problems. AI is a combination of Machine Learning techniques and Deep Learning. AI models which are trained using vast volumes of data have the ability to make intelligent decisions. It is widely used in different application areas like healthcare, agriculture, marketing, gaming, navigation, marketing, automobiles, social media, e-commerce.

Data Analytics Data analysts are one of the most sought professionals considering the current trend in software development. The demand for such professionals is so high and the availability is less, making the job being offered with a huge salary and perks with the promising careers as data analyst, data engineer, data analytics consultant, quantitative analyst few to mention.

Cyber security Cyber security has become an important aspect in the domain of computer science and engineering with huge demand. Assuming the penetration of the internet in villages, almost all common men have access to it. Consequently, there is an increase in cybercrimes every day due to the mischief of cyber criminals. Considering the different responsibilities, there are roles like security architect, security consultant, penetration tester, security analyst, security engineer few to mention.

Edge Computing Edge computing is an emerging technology which can save cost, improve speed, and avoid latency in the activities of the devices in which it is installed. This course prepares students for careers in the field of autonomous vehicles, remote monitoring of assets in the oil and gas industry, smart grid, predictive maintenance, patient monitoring, virtualised radio networks and 5G (vRAN), cloud gaming, etc.

The primarily concern is to automate the manufacturing processes, improving the quality of human life and replacing humans in hazardous environments. This course also helps to choose the higher study and research in future oriented technologies.

Software Engineering Through this course, career opportunities are profuse and various positions like software developer, application developer, solutions designer, test designer, software architect, IT consultant etc. Roles and responsibilities include design and operating databases, creating and developing solutions for various project and research needs, designing innovative solutions, Formation of test cases, test designs and test data, etc.

Geo-Informatics The Geo-Informatics intends to avail the knowledge of remote sensing and Geo Information System to the students. Remote Sensing includes image processing methods, satellite technologies and use of images in different application areas. Geo Information System deals primarily with the details of a particular location.

  • ★ At VIT-AP, we thrive to provide opportunities to students to learn geo-informatics for their professional career benifit. This specialization allows graduates to build their knowledge and practical expertise in geo-informatics with independent study and project experience.
