Starting August 2022, IIT Hyderabad (IIT-H) will offer MTech in Heritage Science and Technology with three specialisations. The institute inaugurated a new Department of Heritage Science and Technology (HST) on International Yoga Day, 2022. The department was inaugurated by Padma Bhushan Dr Vijay Bhatkar, best known as the father of India’s PARAM series supercomputers.

The online Master’s Program in Heritage Science and Technology will be offered in three specialisations that target distinct heritage industries – Technology for Yoga, Indic Language Processing, and Conservation and Reconstruction. The course will be in online mode for 2 years, where

the second year is exclusively earmarked for a thesis project with a focus on either research or product development. There is 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.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Vijay Bhatkar, said, “Bringing heritage and science together to India’s premier institutions is a small but giant step in Indian academics. This shows the way to recreate the ancient Takshashilas and Nalandas in a contemporary form. We are happy that IIT Hyderabad has taken the lead in this.”
