Chennai’s Three Arts & Science Colleges To Offer Courses In Artificial Intelligence & Data Science

Arts and science colleges in Chennai are now planning to offer AI and data science courses from this academic year in order to address the rising demand.

So far, the courses in artificial intelligence and data science are typically offered by engineering or BTech colleges; however, to bridge the demand gaps of professionals skilled in technology, analytics, and artificial intelligence, three colleges in Chennai are now offering BSc Data Science, BSc Data Analytics and BSc Computer Science with Cognitive Systems courses from 2021-22.

To facilitate this, these Chennai colleges have collaborated with companies like TCS and SAS to create a comprehensive curriculum and syllabus for the students. The colleges are also working towards training their faculty member to offer these courses in emerging areas. The courses are exclusively designed for students to get job offers right at the end of these programmes.
