The institute has partnered with Coursera to offer online programmes for a global audience.
According to the IIT, the Advanced Certification in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning will be a six months programme. It will be a mix of expert lectures, hands-on labs, tutorials, team projects, and workshops along with classes on coding and mathematics necessary for building expertise in AI/ML besides equipping with classical ML techniques and algorithms, programming with TensorFlow for easy model building, robust ML production and powerful experimentation among others.
Certification in Data Science programme is designed for professionals and will focus on data science, ML, critical thinking, data collection, data visualisation, and data management.
Prof. Ajit K Chaturvedi, Director, IIT-Roorkee said “We are delighted to partner with Coursera to help fulfill the goal of inclusive education of the New Education Policy. Further, this partnership will help us reach out to a global audience of students and professionals aspiring for quality teaching in these sought after areas.”
