*Referral offer is valid only on the Executive Post Graduate Programme in Data Science .
The Executive Post Graduate Programme is an engaging yet rigorous 12 months online programme designed specifically for working professionals to develop practical knowledge and skills, establish a professional network, and accelerate entry into data science careers. The certification is awarded by IIIT Bangalore.
Expect to carry out several industry-relevant projects simulated as per the actual workplace, making you a skilled data science professional at par with leading industry standards.
The programme is NOT going to be easy. It will be requiring at least 12-15 hours of time commitment per week, applying new concepts and executing industry relevant projects.
The programme is designed for working professionals looking for a transition or growth into the data domain. Considering the requirements of different data roles in the industry, the curriculum is divided into five tracks. The course will have a common curriculum running for approximately for the first 5-6 months that everyone will go through after which they have to do any of the 5 specialization and a capstone project, in the remaining 6-7 months. The topics that are going to be covered as a part of the common curriculum and each of the five specializations are as follows:
Common Curriculum: Basics of SQL, Python, Statistics and EDA, Basic Machine Learning Models
Deep Learning Specialization: Advanced Machine Learning, Neural Networks
NLP Specialization: Advanced Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing
Business Intelligence: Advanced SQL and NoSQL Databases, Storytelling with Advanced Visualization
Business Analytics: Advanced Machine Learning, Storytelling and Advanced Business Problem Solving
Data Engineering: Data Modelling and Data Warehousing, Building Data Pipelines, Data Streaming and Processing
The content will be a mix of interactive lectures from industry leaders as well as world-renowned faculty. Additionally, the programme comprises live lectures or hangout sessions dedicated to solving your academic queries and reinforcing learning. Offline upGrad BaseCamps will also facilitate peer-to-peer interactions.
Post successful completion of the programme, an Executive Post Graduate Programme in Data Science would be granted from IIIT Bangalore.
The programme has ~23 weeks of common curriculum and ~29 weeks of the specialization and capstone project. Once you’re through the 23 weeks of curriculum common to all the five tracks, you will be prompted to choose your specialization.
When you’re nearing the end of your common curriculum, upGrad will provide you with a recommendation best suited for you based on your background. The following mapping should give you an idea about the specialization best suited for you although the final upGrad recommendation would come from a much more exhaustive rule engine.
- Deep Learning: Engineers, Software and IT Professionals
- Natural Language Processing: Engineers, Software and IT Professionals
- Business Intelligence/ Data Analytics: Engineers, Marketing and Sales Professionals, Freshers
- Business Analytics: Engineers, Managers, Marketing and Sales Professionals, Domain Expert
- Data Engineering: Software and IT Professionals
No. You can choose whatever specialization you like once you are through the common curriculum. However, we would urge you to take up the recommendation provided by us as this based on a sophisticated rule engine and is meant to give you the best outcome for your background which will, in turn, make it easier for you to switch to a data role.
Please note that the WES approval status of the Executive Post Graduate Program (EPGP-DS/MLAI/SD) shall be known by early 2022. We would like to inform you that this program (under an earlier name) was approved by WES and accorded 1 year diploma equivalency status. While the name of the program has changed to reposition the program in the market, the program curriculum, delivery and learning outcomes remain the same and as such we are cautiously optimistic that the WES approval status shall remain unchanged. We will inform you about WES approval status by early 2022 or alternatively to know the status, you may apply to WES with requisite information and documents on your successful completion of the program. upGrad and IIITB in no way take responsibility in case WES does not recognise the program.
At least 12-15 hours per week of time commitment is expected to be able to graduate from the programme.
Each of the five specializations will have a common ~23-week curriculum in which the time commitment will be exactly the same.
When you move onto a specialization, it might be that some weeks are heavier in a particular track but lighter for the others. But, overall the total time commitment required will be 12-15 hours/week on average.
Peer-to-peer discussion forum where you can post your queries and your peers/faculty/teaching assistants answer your queries within a day. Regular Q&A sessions with faculty to get clarification on conceptual doubts.
Each specialization is designed to give you the best outcome based on your background and help you venture into the data domain. The services and support for all the tracks will remain the same. Every student will have live sessions, industry mentorship, preparatory support, and access to relevant opportunities according to the requirements in their specialization track.
