Program Overview

Bachelor of Technology in Blockchain is a four-year undergraduate programme that familiarises students with the functional and operational aspects of the cryptocurrency ecosystem. During the tenure of this programme, students develop an understanding of the emerging abstract models for Blockchain Technology.

The primary objective of this course is to identify significant research challenges and technical gaps existing between theory and practice in cryptocurrency domain and to quickly configure a new development platform to understand the applications of blockchain in cybersecurity, the integrity of information, E-Governance and other contract enforcement mechanisms.

The curriculum of this programme is designed in such a way that students are exposed to the Basic Cryptographic primitives used in Blockchain, Basic Distributed System concepts, Basic Blockchain concepts, Limitations of blockchain as a technology, and myths vs reality of blockchain technology and have an understanding and working knowledge of the emerging blockchain technology.

B. Tech in Computer Science with specialisation in Blockchain that familiarises students with the functional and operational aspects of the blockchain ecosystem. During this programmean understanding on the emergingmodels and underlying technologies for Blockchain application is provided.This programme provides in-depth knowledge of specialised programming language ‘Solidity’, cryptocurrency, blockchain component and architecture and its applications. Blockchain Applications include those for Cognitive, Public sector, financial industry and developing cryptocurrency.
The programme further provides inputs in implementing blockchain based contracts and other FinTech application.
