IIT New Courses: IIT Guwahati’s online BSc (Hons) degree in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence

The Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati launched an online Bachelor of Science (Hons) degree programme in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. Classes for the BSc (Honours) in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence programme started in October 2023.


— For this programme, IIT Guwahati removed the upper age limit.

— Any student who had Mathematics in Class 12, irrespective of their stream (it may be Science, Commerce or Humanities), if they have mathematics as a composite subject.

— JEE Main score is not compulsory but those eligible and registered for JEE Advanced (in any year) will get direct admission, while those without can complete an online course and gain entry based on their performance.


This new programme will also provide multiple entry and exit options. If the candidate leaves the programme after year one, he/she will get an Advanced Certificate as part of the programme. If they leave after the second year, then they get a diploma, a normal BSc degree after third years and a complete BSc honours degree for completion of four years.

Festive offer

Internship, placements

Students will also be encouraged to get experience in the form of an internship, and the institute will also offer a campus immersive programme for interested candidates.

“One big benefit that IIT Guwahati is adding to this programme is that candidates have a total of eight years to complete this degree. Also, all the components of this course will be online, and students need not worry about travelling or other issues,” IIT Guwahati director, Parameswar K. Iyer said.
