This PGP certification is designed for Machine Learning enthusiasts from science or engineering backgrounds. The certification in Computational Data Science will equip students to develop algorithms and build large scale enterprise grade AI applications and complex machine systems to solve real world problems.
The coursework in this certification is rigorous and accredited by the computer science department at Case Western Reserve University as 15 credits of graduate study course work.
Only individuals with a bachelor’s degree and a good mathematics background (roughly the mathematics taught in 12th grade) are eligible to enroll in this unique globally recognized graduate certificate program. However, final year students are also eligible to apply to the certification as long as they can get permission from their respective departments and colleges to attend all INSOFE classes.
This program requires students to study full-time and is currently offered at the INSOFE Hyderabad campus and Bangalore campus. Working professionals who wish to attend part-time classes will not be eligible to attend the Computational Data Science certification classes
Universities seem to have different ways of awarding grades, some stricter than others, but we also see more companies encouraging talent irrespective of their undergraduate performance. As a result, we decided not to worry about your previous degree percentage. If you believe your 12th mathematics is strong, we welcome you to try your hand at this program.
The final selection of a candidate to the Computational Data Science certification program is based on a cumulative assessment of the student’s performance during the
- Bachelor’s/master’s degree
- INSOFE entrance exam and
- Interview with INSOFE experts
We only select candidates that we are confident we can train and if the student puts in their best, we can place them in a job within three months of graduating from the Computational Data Science certification.
An ML engineer is expected to be very strong in the following 4 areas and
we teach them all.
- Advanced calculus
- Linear algebra
- Numerical analysis and simulations
- Data structures
- Advanced python
- Contemporary topics in Big Data
- Statistical modeling
- ML modeling
- Deep learning
- Consulting skills
- Project execution skills
The program lasts for approximately 27 weeks with students spending over 700 hours learning the required computational data science theory and lab sessions. This is more than what most master’s programs teach globally!
At INSOFE, we have a hybrid program (classroom and online sessions) where roughly 20 hours per week are spent on classroom lectures taught by our world-class faculty while a data scientist helps students receive individualized guidance with the hands-on-labs sessions.
The certification will require students to complete 35 assignments, 2 hackathons, and 7 projects.
Students will be able to work on industry relevant projects, get trained to build complex code, and present their results convincingly upon successfully completing all the certification requirements.
Globally recognized and jointly certified by INSOFE and Case Western Reserve University, USA
The PGP in Computational Data Science is jointly certified by Case Western Reserve University and INSOFE. To receive this certification, you need to score a minimum of 50% in the program.
However, to become eligible for the career support, you must score 70% in your PGP, there are no exceptions to this requirement.
We only take students who we are convinced are capable of scoring 70%. If you worked hard, there is no reason why you should not get the minimum requirement and receive career support from INSOFE.
According to many surveys, ML Engineering provides you the fastest growth opportunity. It is not just a great beginning but a great journey.
Based on your performance in the PGP course, starting with your 7th month in the program you will begin engaging in the recruitment process and start attending interviews. In addition, campus drives will also be conducted exclusively for companies looking to hire data scientists, machine learning engineers, AI specialists, and data engineers.
Entire program fee to be paid one week before the start of the program.
Our financial partners provide you 100% education loan assistance. You also get a 9 to 15 month moratorium where you just have to pay an instalment of ₹6,000 per month during that time. This means you incur a mere expense of ₹54,000 before you get your dream job.
To transform your career, start your journey with us today!
Who can apply to a PGP in Computational Data Science?
Students with a bachelor’s degree (or in their final year of study) and have a strong mathematics background are eligible to apply to this graduate level PGP certification.
Students from science or engineering backgrounds can enroll in the certification as long as they meet the admission criteria.
I did my bachelor’s in engineering but not computer science, can I apply to this certification?
If you are able to perform well on the INSOFE entrance exam and clear the interview round, then you are eligible to attend the certification program.
You do not need a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science to apply to the PGP in Computational Data Science. All the programming skills required for the job will be taught as part of the program curriculum.
I am a working professional; can I also apply to the program or is this for newly graduated students?
While individuals from diverse academic backgrounds with varying professional experience can apply to this certification, students are required to attend full-time classes at the INSOFE campus in Hyderabad and Bangalore.
Hence, working professionals who wish to continue in their job while taking classes will not be eligible to enroll in the certification program.
