Artificial Intelligence and Data Science Programme prepare students with the skills to perform intelligent data analysis which is a key component in numerous real-world applications. During the past ten years, data science has emerged as one of the most high-growth, dynamic, and lucrative careers in technology. This course aims at providing not only the core technologies such as artificial intelligence, data mining and data modelling but also gives intensive inputs in areas of machine learning and big data analytics. By this course, the students will gain cross- disciplinary skills across fields such as statistics, computer science, machine learning, and logic, data scientists and may have career opportunities in healthcare, business, eCommerce, social networking companies, climatology, biotechnology, genetics, and other important areas. The major focus of this programme is to equip students with statistical, mathematical reasoning, machine learning, knowledge discovery, and visualization skills.
