What Makes The PG Program In Data Science By Edvancer & UPES One Of India’s Best

The most preferred job of the 21st century, Data Science is taking organisations across the world by storm. The no. of available jobs in this field is close to 150,000 and salaries are higher by at least 50% vs. other IT jobs. However, there is a significant lack of talent in data science in India and around the world. 

One of the leading institutes in the emerging technology and analytics space, Edvancer has been consistently ranked among the Top 10 Data Science Training Institutes in India. Edvancer is an IIT-IIM-ISI alumni venture and is the brainchild of Aatash Shah and Lalit Sachan. The institute’s goal is to provide high-quality career-oriented education with a high ROI for the student. It has till date trained more than 6,500 people in data science & AI and works with over 50 corporates to train their data science teams.

In keeping with this goal, Edvancer has recently launched the PG Program in Data Science in association with UPES (University of Petroleum & Energy Studies, Dehradun), which is amongst the best-known universities in India and first in Asia to offer domain focused programs in Data Science, IT, Energy, Project Management, International Business, Aviation, Logistics and others. The PG Program in Data Science is the answer to the need for fulfilling the skill gap in the data science domain. This program is the best fit for the enthusiasts who are looking for an advanced course that packs rigour, best-in-class faculty and multiple real-world projects with large datasets to play with along with placement assistance.

As per Dr. Kingshuk Srivastava, Assistant Professor, School of Computer Science, “The PG Program in Data Science by UPES & Edvancer is one of the most comprehensive ones available in India and covers all aspects of data science. It has been specially designed for students & working professionals alike looking to gain relevant skill-sets and get jobs in the fast-growing data science space.”

Mr. Aatash Shah, co-founder at Edvancer said, “On completing the requirements of the course which includes the opportunity to work on 10 industry projects and a final exam, students will receive globally recognized certifications in Data Science, by Edvancer and UPES. The course not only covers predictive analytics & machine learning but also teaches all the modern relevant tools used in this field like Python and R using real-world case studies. Unlike other theoretical university programs, the course will also be delivered by data scientists from around the world through a live, instructor-led, online class format apart from videos.“
