TalentSprint, an NSE Group company, has announced a multi-year partnership with Robert Bosch Centre for Data Science and AI (RBCDSAI) at IIT Madras to launch multiple deep-tech executive education programs.
RBCDSAI is a world-renowned interdisciplinary research centre with wide-ranging expertise in network analytics, deep learning, reinforcement learning, and natural language processing, a release said.
The 12-month PG Level Advanced Program in Applied Data Science and Machine Intelligence, the first program from the partners, is designed for early career professionals keen to build careers in data science and AI.
With every industry in the midst of digital disruption and connected devices generating massive amounts of data, applied data science along with machine intelligence will play a critical role in making high quality business decisions and implementing scalable solutions.
According to the World Economic Forum, Data Science, Data Architecture, Data Analysis, and Data Engineering are on track to become most favoured career paths by 2022, and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts 11.5 million career openings in these fields by 2026.
Alongside the US, India is expected to be a prominent global hub for data science. Recent data suggests hundreds of thousands of job openings in data science, of which 70% are available to professionals with less than five years of experience.
IIT Madras Head of RBCDSAI and Professor of Computer Science and a Mindtree Faculty Fellow B. Ravindran, said, “Mastering data science requires a strategic approach. Young professionals need to focus equally on building strong fundamentals and applying the learnings to solve real world problems across multiple industry domains.”
Ravindran added, “IIT Madras has always been a top choice for serious learners from all over the world. It is home to RBCDSAI, an interdisciplinary centre comprising faculty across 8+ IIT Madras departments and 80+ researchers leveraging data science to extract actionable insights in the fields of technology, finance, smart cities, finance and healthcare.”
TalentSprint CEO and Managing DirectorSantanu Paul said, “As an emerging leader in professional deeptech education, we continue to be an innovator that brings very aspirational, new-age programs to the market.”
