Prof. Tushar Jain, Head, Centre for Continuing Education (CCE), said, “The global demand for Data Science and Machine Learning experts is growing rapidly. The certificate programs being launched by IIT Mandi are designed in such a way as to impart skills in demand by industries worldwide. In this era of skill development initiated by other IITs, we have adopted a new model, where students or working professionals will get a unique opportunity to learn cutting-edge concepts in data science and machine learning similar to our B.Tech students at IIT Mandi. This would be highly beneficial to the registered students in these programs to upgrade their skills as per the growing demands of industries.”
The program will allow learners to build a strong foundation in Data Science and specialize in Machine Learning with Python for data-driven decision-making. On completion of the course, learners can explore careers as Data Analysts, Data Scientists, Business Analysts, Business Intelligence Professionals, and Consultants on new-age skills.
