The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad will be offering a new online MTech program in Heritage Science and Technology next academic year. The course is offered by the Department of Heritage Science and Technology (HST) of the institute, which was inaugurated by Vijay Bhatkar, known as the father of the PARAM series of supercomputers in India, on International Yoga Day, June 21.
Speaking at the launch of the new department in IIT Hyderabad, Bhatkar said that bringing science and heritage together as one of the most important intuitions in the country was a step in Indian academics. “This shows the way to recreate the ancient Takshashilas and Nalandas in a contemporary form,” Bhatkar told Indian Express.
The Heritage Science and Technology online master’s program is offered in three specializations: Technology for Yoga, Indic Language Processing, and Conservation and Reconstruction. The second year of the course is exclusively dedicated to a graduation project with a focus on research or product development.
Students also have the option of completing the program after one year with a postgraduate diploma (PGD). Candidates can submit their application online through the department’s official website, http://www.hst.iith.ac.in, on or before July 7.
