IIT Roorkee Partners With Coursera To Offer AL, ML & Data Science Online Programs

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee has partnered with Coursera, to launch two new certificate programs — one in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), and the other one in data science.

The six-month certificate program in artificial intelligence and machine learning will consist of video lectures, hands-on learning opportunities, team projects, tutorials, and workshops. In addition to providing the coding knowledge and mathematics necessary for building AI and ML expertise, the program will also teach classical machine learning techniques and provide hands-on programming experience with Tensorflow for model building, robust ML production, and powerful experimentation.

The certificate program in data science will equip professionals looking to build skills in data science, machine learning, critical thinking, data collection, data visualization, and data management. The program will help develop Python and SQL programming skills necessary for a career in data analytics. It also builds knowledge on machine learning algorithms such as linear models, kNN, SVM, Trees, Random forest, and neural networks. The program requires no prior knowledge of coding in Python, R, or SQL.

With this partnership, IIT Roorkee joins the ranks of 150 top universities — including Yale, University of Michigan, Stanford, and Imperial College of London — that offer programs on Coursera. Coursera’s 67 million learners across 190 countries will now be able to access IIT Roorkee’s highly sought-after and job-relevant programs.

“Coursera is a leading online learning platform. We are delighted to partner with Coursera to help fulfill the goal of inclusive education of the New Education Policy. Further, this partnership will help us reach out to a global audience of students and professionals aspiring for quality teaching in these sought-after areas,” said Prof. Ajit K. Chaturvedi, Director, IIT Roorkee. 

“IIT Roorkee is one of India’s top and oldest engineering schools, and millions aspire to learn from this illustrious institution,” said Jeff Maggioncalda, CEO, Coursera. “This partnership makes the institution accessible to a global audience. Now anyone, anywhere can take the institute’s high-quality programs to learn skills of the future.”

IIT Roorkee will launch both these programs on Coursera in early 2021.
