Speaking about the new courses, Professor Tushar Jain, head, Centre for Continuing Education (CCE), said, "The global demand for data science and machine learning experts is growing rapidly. The certificate programmes being launched by IIT Mandi are designed in such a way as to impart skills in demand by industries worldwide. In this era of skill development initiated by other IITs, we have adopted a new model, where students or working professionals will get a unique opportunity to learn cutting-edge concepts in data science and machine learning similar to our BTech students at IIT Mandi. This would be highly beneficial to the registered students in these programmes to upgrade their skills as per the growing demands of industries.”
Recently, IIT Mandi started an MBA programme in data science and artificial intelligence. Students who graduate from this MBA course will find managerial-level work opportunities in consulting, analytics, and decision-making roles.
