Scaler (by InterviewBit), a leading Bengaluru-based edtech start-up, today unveiled Scaler Neovarsity, the future of higher education. Scaler Neovarsity will kick off with an online Master of Science in Computer Science, offering specialisation in both Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence & Machine learning. Scaler Neovarsity is a testament to Scaler’s ability to bring world-class technical online higher education to India and create the right ecosystem for its stakeholders to build a solid and enduring relationship in their professional lives.

Scaler Neovarsity’s MS program is designed by experienced industry professionals for professionals looking to upskill to grow their career and those looking to pursue a master’s program and transition into AI & ML domains. It is also relevant for machine learning engineers looking to excel in their careers, working professionals seeking a career transition into product-based companies, and non-software professionals looking to start a career in machine learning. It will enable learners to explore various fields of data utilisation to solve real-world business problems.

Abhimanyu Saxena, Co-Founder, Scaler and Interviewbit, said – Scaler Neovarsity is an outcome of our deep understanding of the changing landscape of higher education that is trying to catch up with the ever-changing demands of the tech-backed economy of the 21st century. Scaler was founded specifically to address the challenges faced by traditional university-based higher education that is not completely in sync with the evolving demand for a skilled workforce. The new EU accredited master’s program in AI and ML will create far better opportunities for working professionals through ease of movement between different markets.”

The program is developed and designed for working professionals allowing them to enhance their current skill sets. After program completion, learners will gain expertise in solving real-world engineering and scientific problems using cutting-edge and state-of-the-art techniques. They will have a solid foundation of computer science concepts to pursue applied research in various subfields with a fortified ability to understand advanced research work and computational tools. The 18-month program will enable the learners with problem-solving skills and computational thinking in diverse science, engineering and commerce fields like Drug-Discovery, Information Retrieval, Astronomy, E-Commerce, and telemedicine, for example. Program-takers will also receive placement assistance and extensive support from the Scaler community.

Scaler will be working with Woolf University to implement the accredited program. Woolf, the first global collegiate higher education institution, offers programs in the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS), a tool within the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). Scaler Neovarsity will function as an affiliated institution of Woolf, allowing the edtech platform to build the program curriculum, which gets taught by industry experts similar to its other programs – Scaler Academy and Scaler DSML. At the same time, Woolf University takes care of regulation and accreditation processes under EU guidelines.

After completing Scaler Neovarsity’s program, the learners will be awarded 90 ECTS credits and an accredited Master of Science in Computer Science. As per EHEA, 90 ECTS credits are sufficient to award a learner/student with a Master’s. Therefore, Scaler’s Neovarsity program is equivalent to any offline MS course from the EU since all European countries follow and recognise the ECTS credit system. The ECTS credit system also allows graduates to transfer credits (over 60 countries globally recognise and accept the ECTS credit system) and adds value to point-based immigration processes in several countries, including Europe and North America.

“Our mission is to increase access to world-class higher education and ensure that it is globally recognized and transferable. As a member college of Woolf, Scaler is helping to transform higher education by creating educational programs that align with today’s workforce,” said Dr. Joshua Broggi, founder and CEO of Woolf. “Scaler opens the door to a world of possibilities to those who thought higher education would never be an option. We are thrilled to be working with Scaler to bring this vision to fruition.”

With over 1800+ employees, another 2,000 mentors and teaching assistants, and a learner base of more than 25,000 software engineers, Scaler is aggressively working towards bridging the tech talent gap in India. Recently, Scaler also launched its B2B marketing campaign highlighting the emerging shift in the status quo, with companies preferring the right skills, along with Scalerverse, a new community space to harbour an immersive learning experience for the learners and mentors. Scaler has raised 76.5 million USD from Sequoia Capital India, Tiger Global, Lightrock India, and others. The young edtech brand is currently valued at 710 million USD.

The Civil Engineering department of NMIMS MPSTME has been making significant strides in the field of disaster management, flood resilience, and sustainable infrastructure. The department has published two patents, research papers at international conferences, and completed several student-led projects on topics such as renewable energy, groundwater modelling, and self-healing concrete.

The first patent, ‘Automated Flood Water Regulating Multipurpose System,’ proposes a novel approach to flood resilience by constructing multipurpose wells on the banks of rivers to discharge excess water and generate hydropower. The second patent, ‘Aqua Barrier,’ is an automated mechanism that can protect any flood-prone area, regardless of its size, from any disasters caused due to water.

The student-led projects are equally impressive, with topics ranging from low-volume rural concrete roads to oscillating tidal wave energy converters. These projects showcase the department’s focus on sustainable infrastructure, renewable energy, and innovative design.

The faculty at NMIMS MPSTME Civil Engineering department, led by Head, Dr. Meenal Mategaonkar and Research coordinator, Dr. Jigisha Vashi, played a vital role in guiding and mentoring students toward research excellence. Their expertise and guidance have enabled students to participate and win awards in prestigious competitions such as the CDRI’s ‘Imagining Disaster Resilient Structures’ and The University of Queensland’s ‘Engineering Design Challenge, and AAKAR at IIT Bombay.’

The department’s success is further evidenced by the achievements of its students in national and international conferences. Students presented their research papers in Scopus Indexed papers and conferences such as the 9th Indian Young Geotechnical Engineering Conference and the Eighth Indian Young Geotechnical Conference.

Dr. Meenal Mategaonkar, Head of the Civil Engineering Department, MPSTME, NMIMS, said,  “The achievements of the NMIMS MPSTME Civil Engineering department demonstrate its commitment to developing innovative solutions for complex problems in the field of civil engineering. The department’s focus on sustainable infrastructure, disaster resilience, and renewable energy is essential for addressing the challenges faced by society today. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of both students and faculty and their commitment to excellence.”
