Data science became a career buzzword for IT professionals when a Harvard Business Review termed it as "The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century". According to the U.S. Bureau of Labour Statistics, growth for data science jobs skills will grow about 30% year on year through 2026. At this point in time in 2021, the average salary of a Data Scientist / Analyst is to the tune of US$ 120K annually.
Why Data Science is a sought after skill for employers: Companies across industries are rushing towards automated decision making for all of their departments and that is possible through the application of various Data Science, Analytics, Machine Learning and Deep Learning skills. Every functional field in any company are seeking out opportunities to keep making their systems smarter and decisions smarter - be it automated voice assistants, smart cars, smart factories, smart marketing and advertising, smart sales predictions, smart investment decisioning and many more.
Skills Required for Data Scientists
If it is your goal is to become a Data Scientist, you have to first understand what it takes to become one, the skills and competencies that you should learn. Data Science is an amazingly interesting field, full of interesting concepts and power to create magic from Data.
Comprehensive knowledge on Deep Learning, ML-Ops and AI/ML Product Development are critical knowledge areas for any Data Scientist/Data Engineer/Machine-Learning Professional. This course places a lot of focus into these areas so that there is no learning gap when you start on a Data Science/Machine Learning role.
The curriculum prepares you to be a leader in this field through mastery of core data science concepts like Statistical Analysis of Data, Exploratory Data Analysis Techniques using Python, powerful Visualizations, Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Model Deployment in Production. By diving deep on key topics as above in a fully practical way, you'll be prepared to succeed within today's organizations. You'll also work with real data sets from top companies as you build a work portfolio that showcase your skills. Learn the systems and techniques that help organizations overcome data overload and make smart decisions.
Curriculum for this Applied Data Science program has been modelled around the life-cycle of Data Science Projects. There is special emphasis on selection of Languages, Algorithms, Libraries, Tools, Projects and Assignments that enable our learners to achieve that. There is special emphasis on Deep Learning and applications of Deep Learning for solving complex problems, ML-Ops so that learners have a hands-on exposure on what happens in real-life situations in terms of going live with your models and maintaining them in production. We also spend a week on industry trends and ML/AI product development practices and mechanics. These topics and exposures will enable our learners with the ability to take up a wide-variety of challenges and job roles.
