In a major development, the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore is starting a new advanced course in Computational Data Science starting next year. The course duration is 10 months and will be offered in the online mode from January 2021 onwards.
The executive program is for data engineers, data analysts, data architects, and data scientists. Candidates who have completed their undergraduate degree and have work experience of 1 year along with programming knowledge are eligible to apply for the course.
The institute is starting the course for 50 professionals from India, the Middle East, and APAC. Students who are accepted and enrolled in the course will be required to undergo live and interactive online classes and mentor participants to solve data science problems.
The Computational Data Science course also comprises of a case study on the analysis of how the industry today uses computational data science in real-world use cases. The broader curriculum of the course includes the mathematics of data science, neural networks, machine learning, data engineering and business analytics.
Sashikumaar Ganesan, Chair, Department of Computational and Data Sciences (CDS) at IISc and programme said that through the programme the participants will practice on a variety of industry case studies and capstones. He said that this also allows the participants the opportunity to bring their own projects for solving which they will be mentored.
