About

The B.Tech. program in Computer Science and Social Sciences (CSSS) from Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology Delhi is born out of a recognition that professionals of either discipline often realise in practice the methodological tools and the thinking apparatus needed to solve many important problems are to be found in the other discipline. 

Overview

The program in Computer Science and Social Sciences at Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology Delhi comprise of the following disciplines: economics, sociology/anthropology, psychology, and liberal arts, communication and humanities. Within the program, students are offered two broad options. One is to earn a major in one of the above disciplines in conjunction with computer science. 

Key Features 

  • The other is to opt for a portfolio of courses across all social science disciplines while taking the same set of computer science courses. 
  • The program structure is motivated by the fact that the skill-set required to address social problems can only be addressed through an integrated systems approach that requires strong synergies between computer science and social sciences. 
  • A training in this integrated program will open up several opportunities in the industry, social sector, governance, policy as well as for graduate school.

Programme Structure

  • The B.Tech. (CSSS) program at IIIT­-D follows the philosophy of having a small set of core courses and many electives allowing students significant flexibility in designing their curriculum and specialization. 
  • The first semester program is common with other B.Tech. programs - this allows change of discipline after 1st Semester. 2nd , 3rd and 4th semester is mostly core courses. In the 3rd year, there are some core courses and rest are electives. 
  • In the final year, all courses are electives. Besides electives and streams for specialized areas, streams and electives from domain areas (e.g. health, life sciences, finance, economics, E-Governance, sciences, etc.) may also be offered as open electives.
