TalentSprint & IIT Madras Launch Deep-Tech Executive Programs


Edtech company TalentSprint has announced a partnership with Robert Bosch Centre for Data Science and AI (RBCDSAI) at IIT Madras to launch multiple deep-tech executive education programs. The first of these programs will be a 12-month PG level advanced program in Applied Data Science and Machine Intelligence. This program is designed for early-career professionals who want to build a career in data science and AI.

RBCDSAI is an interdisciplinary research centre offering expertise in deep learning, reinforcement learning, natural language processing, and network analytics. Several RBCDSAI faculty members and experts from interdisciplinary backgrounds will teach live and interactive online courses. The students will get hands-on experience across diverse industry domains such as finance, healthcare, software engineering, manufacturing, and smart cities. Program director Dr Arun Kumar said, “We also aim to include a campus visit towards the end of the program so that participants can benefit from the real-life experience.”

Elaborating about the TalentSprint-RBCDSAI partnership, Dr B. Ravindran, Head of RBCDSAI and Professor of Computer Science at IIT Madras and a Mindtree Faculty Fellow, said: “Mastering data science requires a strategic approach. Young professionals need to focus equally on building strong fundamentals and applying the learnings to solve real-world problems across multiple industry domains.”
