Degree Course from Bangalore University
Artificial intelligence & Gamification
Sharing knowledge in computer science and psychology to create successful, ethical and effective problem solvers for our society
To provide students with experiential learning opportunities to help them acquire new knowledge to meet the growing demands of a world that keeps changing rapidly
About the Course
Our college offers courses in computer science at an undergraduate level to respond to the rising demand in this field owing to the rapid growth of IT and software industries in the country. A career in Computer Science has been proved lucrative and rewarding since last decade. Students of computer science are trained not only in the use of various software but also have the opportunity to acquire knowledge of operating systems, programming language, data base, etc. With the opening of many software and IT companies in India, the job opportunities for trained professionals have increased considerably.
The course focuses on the scientific study of the human mind and how it dictates and influences our behavior from communication and memory to thought and emotion. The objective is to understand what makes people think and how this understanding can help them address many of the problems and issues in society today. The course focuses on the study of human behavior and the thoughts, feelings, and motivations behind it through observation, measurement and testing in order to form conclusions that are based on sound scientific methodology.

Specialisations – Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a research field that studies how to realize the intelligent human behaviours on a computer. The ultimate goal of AI is to make a computer that can learn, plan, and solve problems autonomously. Although AI has been studied for more than half a century, we still cannot make a computer that is as intelligent as a human in all aspects. However, we do have many successful applications. In some cases, the computer equipped with AI technology can be even more intelligent than us. The Deep Blue system which defeated the world chess champion is a well-known example.
To acquire basic knowledge in machine learning techniques and learn to apply the techniques in the area of pattern recognition and data analytics.
At the conclusion of course students are able to:
- Understand to implement the supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms.
- Understand the basic principles of machine learning techniques and AI.

Specialisations – Cyber Security
The objective of this training is to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity, network security, and ethical hacking. The training will also help participants prepare for the CCNA Security and CEH certifications.
Cybersecurity is a critical aspect of modern businesses and organizations. The increasing dependence on technology has made it imperative for individuals and organizations to understand the security risks associated with using the internet and connected devices. The CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) Security and CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) certifications are widely recognized as the standards for cybersecurity professionals.
