Data Science and Data Analytics in India
Best Courses in India for Data Science & Analytics
Joining the rat race, to get to the data crumbs, Indian universities and various other institutes have begun their own flavor of Data Analytics/Data Science training, here in India. The future clearly has a cozy space for Data and its study fields – Data Science, Data Analytics, Data Engineering (For the interested, here are some advanced insights on data science and related fields of Artificial Intelligence Vs Machine Learning Vs Data Science Vs Deep learning).
And that cozy space certainly has a well compensated, well in demand, position for the ones who know how to utilize the exceptionally large amount of data that the world is producing every second – the Data Scientists.
We have attempted to bring together a list of universities, and institutes, that are offering some form of certification or post graduate level training in Data Science. The tabulated list, below, is not in any order of ranking.
It is also not a comprehensive list for one of the following reasons making it nearly impossible to collate everything here – the field is often hidden as a specialization in other post graduate degrees, often there is no online information for some universities, sometimes there are way too many resources to handle in this single article and finally the fact that courses are being added every term.
However, this article is a good starting point to know where, in this vast sea of institutes, can you begin to formulate your search for a data mentor.
A word of caution is to find out the proper accreditation of the institutes before paying a ransom in degree money.
