MEET OUR FACULTY
Behind every successful professional is a slew of mentors they admire who guided them.
Meet the dedicated faculty of MSIT Program, here to nurture and guide the next generation of innovators, disruptors and thinkers.
Foremost Minds in
Advanced Computer Sciences
Our highly skilled mentors are available in-person for the students, to guide them through all the courses.
MSIT maintains a student:mentor ratio of less than 10:1, i.e., for every 10 students there is one mentor available.
The mentors are domain experts, who create the course content and are called principal mentors. Apart from this, each learning centre has a course coordinator, who is a computer science professor in the department. The students also have access to digital lectures from various renowned professors worldwide. We curate the best lectures available in the domain and deliver it to the students, along with hands-on guidance.
Dr Reddy’s research interests include artificial intelligence and the study of human-computer interaction.
