In partnership with Coursera, the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani has introduced an online Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) in Computer Science programme. Beginning today, interested candidates can visit the Coursera website at coursera.org.
Starting now, interested applicants can submit an application for the first cohort, which starts in November 2022. The deadline for applications is November 15.
Steps to apply for the programme:
Step 1: Go to coursera.org, the Coursera website.
Step 2: Candidates can find the option for “online degrees” in the top scroll of the homepage.
Step 3: Following that, scroll down and select the link for “Computer Science and Engineering Degrees.”
Step 4: Candidates can select the link for the BSc Computer Science from BITS on the new page after clicking “show more” on the previous one.
Step 5: Select the “apply now” button at the top.
Step 6: Complete the form with all the necessary personal information and submit the registration fee, if required.
The early application deadline is October 17, and the final application deadline is November 15. The start of classes is set for November 30.
It’s interesting that the degree has no entrance exams and is available to students with a variety of backgrounds, including those without a strong foundation in science or considerable mathematics. Anyone who has completed class 12 or its equivalent is eligible to apply.
The three-year degree can also be finished in six years by registered candidates. This will give students the freedom to study the programme concurrently with employment or another degree programme. Students can earn the program’s intermediate exit option, a diploma, in about two years.
