AI, robotics part of new AICTE syllabus

As per TOI dated 26/11, First-year engineering students will study big data analytics, artificial intelligence, robotics and internet of things and undergo mandatory induction programmer and internships from the academic year 2018-19 as the All India Council for Technical Education(AICTE) has revised the curriculum for the four-year undergraduate programmer. Officials said that the revised curriculum comes seven years after it was last updated by the AICTE to make engineering graduates more employable. The revised curriculum released on Friday will be adopted by all affiliated engineering colleges across the country from next academic year.

Is it an overkill, considering these courses need lot of foundation work in terms of mathematics, computer concepts, programming, exposure to real-life issues?
