    AI cannot replace core engineering disciplines: IIT Mandi Director

    IIT-Mandi Director said that the engineering college curriculum need not be revamped with the advent of AI because the new technologies cannot do research.
    Amid an ongoing discussion about how education and learning will have to be reimagined in the wake of the AI boom, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Mandi Director Laxmidhar Behera said that the engineering college curriculum need not be revamped with the advent of AI because the new technologies cannot do research.
    “AI can probably give a finishing touch, you know, making things much better, this and that.But the core engineering discipline cannot be replaced by AI or AI technology. So this is a hype.I cannot tell you how long this will continue, but I am pretty sure every phase has its own end,”IIT Mandi Director said.

    Talking about expansion plans for IIT Mandi,Behera said the institute plans to increase the faculty strength to over 300 and student strength to over 5,000 in the next five years.
