IIT Delhi’s Certificate Programme in Data Science & Machine Learning: Learn new skills and fast track your career

May 20, 2024 11:30 AM IST

Studying data science can help sift through vast amounts of data to get analytical insights while machine learning can help you learn patterns from data freely.

Data Science and Machine Learning have revolutionized industries, fuelling innovation, automation and informed decision-making. While the former leverages data to uncover insights and solve complex problems, the latter empowers systems to learn from data and make decisions autonomously. According to Statista 2024: “The Data Science and Machine Learning market size is expected to show an annual growth rate (CAGR 2024-2030) of 17.15%, resulting in a market volume of US$528.10bn by 2030.”

About IITD

The Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi) is one of the 5 initial IITs established for training, research, and development in science, engineering, and technology in India. Established as the College of Engineering in 1961, the Institute was later declared an Institution of National Importance under the “Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act, 1963” and was renamed as “Indian Institute of Technology Delhi”. It was then accorded the status of a Deemed University with powers to decide its own academic policy, to conduct its own examinations, and to award its own degrees. Since its inception, over 48000 have graduated from IIT Delhi in various disciplines including Engineering, Physical Sciences, Management, and Humanities & Social Sciences. Of these, nearly 5070 received PhD degrees. The rest obtained a Master’s Degree in Engineering, Sciences and Business Administration. These alumni today work as scientists, technologists, business managers, and entrepreneurs. There are several alumni who have moved away from their original disciplines and have taken to administrative services, active politics, or are with NGOs. In doing so, they have contributed significantly to the building of this nation, and to industrialisation around the world.
