IIT Roorkee is offering a 5-month online course on data science and machine learning that will commence on 30 June 2022
Imarticus Learning in association with iHUB DivyaSampark at IIT Roorkee have partnered to launch a Certificate program in Data Science and Machine Learning (ML). Designed to make aspirants and professionals industry-ready, the course enables them to leverage Data Science and ML for effective decision-making, said a press statement.
The course will be delivered through live, instructor-led sessions by faculty from institutions like IIT Roorkee, IIT Guwahati, and IIT Ropar and experts from the data science industry. The program aims at helping learners build a strong foundation in Data Science and specialize in ML with Python for data-driven decision-making. Through the course, learners will be able to provide meaningful data insights and help drive business growth.
Coordinated by Prof R Balasubramanian, an academician in Data Science and ML, the program certificate will be collectively issued by iHUB DivyaSampark at IIT Roorkee, Department of Science and Technology, and Imarticus Learning under The National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (NM-ICPS). iHUB DivyaSampark will also offer a platform for Data Science and ML enthusiasts and learners to pitch their start-up ideas and gain funding support. There is a campus immersion module at the end of the course where the students will meet at the iHUB DivyaSampark Greater Noida campus for faculty interactions and peer-peer networking.
