IIT Roorkee has partnered with TSW, the Executive Education Division of Times Professional Learning, and launched a Postgraduate Certificate Program in Data Science and Machine Learning. The program has been designed especially for working professionals with insights from academics and industry experts and will strike the right balance between rigor and practice.
“Data Science and Machine Learning has become increasingly useful in newer areas. In the near future, it is likely to become an essential skill for many different professions and industries. Academic institutions need to come forward for the huge capacity building exercise that is required to meet the needs of the industry. The situation arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic has given us the hope that many such programs can be effectively delivered online provided the program is for a longer duration. Our partnership with TSW seeks to achieve this with the eleven months certificate program.” said Prof. Ajit K Chaturvedi, director, IIT Roorkee.
