IIT-H to offer 2-year course in Heritage Science & Technology

IIT Hyderabad (IIT-H) will offer MTech in Heritage Science and Technology with three specialisations from this August onwards. The institute has already launched a new Department of Heritage Science and Technology (HST) for this purpose on International Yoga Day.

The department of HST would allow the exploration of India’s scientific heritage. “There is an acute need to undertake this exploration without any biases and in the true spirit of rigorous science,” said the spokesperson of the Institute.

The online Master’s Program in Heritage Science and Technology will be offered in three specialisations that target distinct heritage industries, namely, Technology for Yoga, Indic Language Processing, and Conservation and Reconstruction. Though the course will be in online mode for 2 years, the second year is exclusively earmarked for a thesis project with a focus on either research or product development. Students will be given an option to exit at the end of 1st year (after course work) with a Post-Graduate Diploma (PGD) in HST. The highlight of the course is an in-campus in-person weekend workshop/hackathon at the end of each semester.
