Brief about PG Diploma in Data Science

By use of various web-based and mobile-based applications, voluminous data is generated. Hence, it becomes challenging task to handle these data and most importantly to understand the data. Looking at the current and futuristic trends, there will be demand of data science experts who can understand the nature of data, analyze the data and take result-oriented decisions after analysis of the data. This program is for students who are interested in developing skills in data science and data analytics.

During one year of program the students will learn insights of subjects like Machine Learning, Programming in Python, Blockchain Technology, Big Data Analytics, Data Analysis using R, Cloud Computing etc.

After acquiring the skills from this program, the candidates can be employed as

(1) Data Engineer who is responsible for creating the infrastructure for collating data from various sources, cleaning it, transforming it and storing it so that it can be used by other people in the team.
(2) Data Scientist whose work typically starts where the job of data engineer ends. He is responsible for extracting insights from the data using various tools & techniques, producing basic data visualizations and reporting dashboards
(3) Machine Learning Engineer who is responsible for analyzing data using data preparation and cleaning techniques, statistical/predictive analytics techniques and interpreting the statistical output (hypothesis testing, ANOVA, regression (linear, logistic), clustering, time series, decision trees, naive bayes and many more), machine learning techniques, etc.
