In a piece of news that will come as a pleasant surprise to all the aspirants who want to study further and make their mark in emerging tech, IIT Guwahati has now announced a new MTech programme in data science. Three departments from the noted institute — Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics and Electrical Engineering and Mathematics have come together to offer this interdisciplinary programme.

As analytics as a discipline becomes more entrenched across domains, especially in India’s financial services sector, organisations and high-growth startups are going on a hiring spree. However, the market continues to be employer-driven and finding the right talent is a growing challenge for organisations and startups.

Our recent study found out that there has been an overall growth in the number of jobs in analytics and data science ecosystem with India contributing to 6% of open job openings worldwide. The total number of analytics and data science job positions available are 97,000. Out of these, 97% job openings in India are on a full-time basis while 3% are part-time or contractual.

On the skill side, as more companies bolster their analytics capabilities, they are aggressively hiring professionals with sound technical knowledge. A key takeaway is that the analytics and data science talent supply will not be able to keep pace with job growth.

Here’s how you can apply to the course.
