Newton School of Technology, in collaboration with Rishihood University, has announced the commencement of the first round of admissions for its Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) program in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence (AI) for the Class of 2024. Following the remarkable success of its inaugural cohort, the 4-year program combines theoretical knowledge with hands-on practical skills, setting a global standard in tech education.

The application process, initiated on December 22, invites students from across the country who have secured more than 50% in their Higher Secondary School exams in 2022, 2023, or 2024, from a recognized board. Prospective students can apply for the Newton Scholastic Aptitude Test (NSAT), an online entrance exam that will be a key determinant for admissions.

Applicants who apply during the early intake round have the opportunity to avail a range of scholarships, increasing their chances of securing admission. Merit-based scholarships for tuition fees, ranging up to 100%, are available based on NSAT scores, interview performance, JEE, CBSE, KVPY, and Olympiads performance. Additionally, female students are eligible for higher scholarship amounts throughout the four-year program, as part of the institution’s commitment to fostering diversity and encouraging more women to pursue careers in technology.

The meticulously curated curriculum aims to empower individuals to think critically, solve complex problems, and thrive in the fast-paced tech-first environment, ensuring success in the industry. Newton School of Technology (NST), with over 2000 hiring partners, offers students placement assistance and six-month industry-relevant internships to gain practical experience with top-tier companies.

Located in Delhi NCR, NST provides students with opportunities for global exposure through funded international study trips and conferences. Classes are conducted by international faculty from prestigious institutions like MIT, Duke University, and industry leaders from companies such as Amazon and Google. NST students have already made a mark in the global arena by qualifying for the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) regionals, a prestigious student coding competition, under the mentorship of industry experts.

The program also encourages entrepreneurial spirit among students by providing opportunities to pitch startup ideas directly to venture capitalists. An enticing ₹1 crore startup fund is available to support students in bringing their entrepreneurial visions to life.
