M.Tech – Data Science

Programme Overview

Duration: 2 Years| Programme Code: 020320

M.Tech Data Science programme aims to develop computational and statistical skills for data-driven multi-disciplinary problems. Data science integrates statistics and data mining techniques to develop methods to collect, process and extract meaningful information from large and diverse data sets. The M. Tech in Data science curriculum will prepare student in areas such as Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Data Mining, Predictive Analytics, large-scale data analytics and Big Data. The usefulness of this course is in every industry, government organization, and Internet start-ups to financial institutions to handle big data projects at every level.

Programme Educational Objectives

  • To apply statistical data analysis and other decision science techniques to effectively solve real-world problems.
  • Develop appropriate algorithms using machine learning techniques to solve problems.
  • Effectively communicate the results of the analysis using appropriate data visualization techniques

Programme Outcomes

Upon completion of the Data Science programme, students will be able to:
  • acquire in-depth knowledge of concepts of statistics and machine learning to discriminate, evaluate, analyze and synthesize existing and new knowledge and to integrate the same for enhancement of knowledge with a global perspective.
