INSOFE teamed up with IIT Ropar and CICE, Carleton University to offer – “PGP (Honours) in Data Science”, a specialization program that will prepare students with data science, application architecture, and engineering skills.

There is a great demand for engineers who can not only build models but actually scale and deploy complex AI applications.  The salaries of such engineers are roughly twice that of data scientists who build offline models which itself is 50-70% higher than software engineers.  PGP (Honours) in Data Science is designed for bridging that gap.

This unique program is going to be jointly certified by three institutes

INSOFE – International School of Engineering

IIT Ropar – Indian Institute of Technology

CICE – Canada India Centre of Excellence


Program Benefits

  • Teaching and thesis guidance by world-class faculty of INSOFE, IIT – Ropar, CICE – Carleton University at Canada
  • A unique combination of modeling, architecture, research and programming:  A super recipe for quickest growth in AI
  • Hands-on skill development through intensive Bootcamps, Hackathons
  • A full-scale 4-month thesis work that transforms you into a full-fledged engineer

Speaking about the global program, Dr. Ravishankar, Professor & Dean of this program at INSOFE, said, “this program creates top notch engineering talent in AI space which is the need of the hour.  In terms of rigor and course content, we designed this program on par with a master’s program from top US universities”

Karen Schwartz, Associate Vice-President (Research & International) added, “Canada India Centre of Excellence, in short CICE, is an initiative of Carleton University and the Indo – Canadian Community. Located in Ottawa, the centre aims at providing a platform to the Indian students who would like to explore emerging fields through events, research and partnerships.

Those looking to strengthen their skills cultivate their knowledge and grow their careers while gaining exposure to a new culture (both in industry and country perspectives), will find these programs a vital asset.”

Speaking on the occasion Prof. S K Das, Director, IIT Ropar said “We aim to bridge the productivity gap and increase the greater learning of new-age disruptive technologies.

The PGP (Honours) in Data Science program is the right program for any aspirant who wants to enhance their Data Science, Application Architecture and Engineering skills
