Case Western Reserve University, a member of the “Research 1” Universities in the United States has tied up with INSOFE to offer Hybrid Masters Programs that integrate relevant Data Science Fundamentals into Core Engineering.
A formal MOU between the two institutions has been signed by Dr. Venkataramanan (Ragu) Balakrishnan, the Charles H Phipps Dean, Case School of Engineering and Dr. Dakshinamurthy V Kolluru, Founder & President, INSOFE. The event held across Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru were attended by Mr. Ankush Gupta, Associate Principal, ZS Associates India Pvt. Ltd, Dr. Sandeep Sharma, Managing Director of a leading MNC in Hyderabad and Mr. Alex Walton, Head of Analytics at Arcadis (GEC India).
The MS Program is offered in three specialized areas –
- Biomedical Engineering with Digital Health Analytics,
- Mechanical Engineering with AI and Robotics
- Civil Engineering with AI and ML
The students study 50% of the 30 credit Masters Program at INSOFE Campuses in India, where they have imparted fundamentals of Data Science and specific specializations relevant to the streams the students choose. The remaining 50%, includes Domain-based Engineering, which will be studied at the Case School of Engineering, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH.
Speaking to the media about the program, Dr. Ragu Balakrishnan said, “The MS Programs are hybrid in 2 ways. One is that the students study half of the program in India specific to Data Sciences and remaining half in the US, the second is that it is integrating extreme domain engineering with Data Sciences to enable students to be future-ready.”
INSOFE has been a pioneer in Data Science education over the past nine years and has committed itself to enrich the students Data Science knowledge by bringing experiences gained through Research, Product Development, and Consulting. Speaking at the event,
Dr Dakshinamurthy V Kolluru said, “INSOFE is proud to be offering Masters Programs in association with Case School of Engineering. The curriculum is designed to provide a competitive advantage to both the students who look at mastering the domain as well as students who look at making their careers in Data Science.”
The eligibility for the admission into this program is competitive through an online examination conducted by INSOFE along with the presentation of a Statement of Purpose and Letters of Recommendation.
