About the program:

Computer Science Engineering ( Data Science )  builds the career and continues to be one of the promising and in-demand careers for skilled professionals. To start a career in Data Science domain, one needs to have skill-sets such as Mathematical Modeling, Statistics, Programming, Database and Machine Learning. One should be a problem solver and critical thinker to excel in Data Science domain. Data Scientists work in a variety of fields each is crucial to finding solutions to problems and requires specific knowledge. These fields include Data Acquisition, Preparation, Mining, Modeling and model maintenance. Data Scientists take raw data; turn it into a goldmine of information with the help of Machine Learning algorithms that answer questions for business seeking solutions to their queries. Program strives and helps students build their career and achieve success through theoretical, practical, activity based learning methods and though industry collaborations.
