This an industry-relevant yet academically-rigorous 8-months program covering Natural Language Processing concepts. It is specifically designed for working professionals with Math/Software Engineering/Statistics/Analytics backgrounds to help them gain practical knowledge and to accelerate their entry into Advanced Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing roles.
The programme will benefit you in different ways depending on your prior experience:
Data Scientist or Senior Data Analyst: The programme will familiarise you with the advancements in ML and AI. It will also help you understand the mathematics behind algorithms and how you can modify them to suit your needs so that you can transition to a Senior Natural Language Processing role.
Statistician/Mathematician: Apart from familiarising you with the advancements in ML and AI, the programme will help you understand how to define a structured approach to solve a business problem, and will equip you with the right tools so that you can transition to a Natural Language Processing or a Data Science role.
Data Engineer/Big Data Engineer: The programme will set up a solid foundation of Statistics, Natural Language Processing along with problem-solving skills so that you can solve enterprise-level problems. It will build upon your existing knowledge of various tools to make you a Full-Stack Natural Language Processing or Data Science professional.
Software Developer: The programme will help you create a strong foundation of Statistics, Natural Language Processing, and Business Understanding. It will leverage your existing knowledge of programming and expand the technologies you are familiar with so that you can become a well-rounded Natural Language Processing professional.
This programme intends to produce extremely well-rounded data scientists and AI professionals with deep knowledge of mathematics, expertise in relevant tools/languages, and understanding of cutting-edge algorithms and applications.
This programme is designed for working professionals looking to pick up skills in advanced concepts like Classification Algorithms, Clustering, Decision Trees, and Natural Language Processing along with a solid foundation of Statistics. This programme demands consistent work and time commitment over the entire duration of 8 months.
This programme is NOT intended to serve as an entry point to the field of Data Science. It is aimed at developing professionals who can be absorbed into Senior Data Scientist and Natural Language Processing roles. Our Advanced Certificate Programme in Machine Learning & NLP is aimed at facilitating the transition of professionals to the Data Science field.
The content will be a mix of asynchronous lectures from industry leaders as well as world-class faculty. Additionally, the programme comprises of some live lectures or hangout sessions dedicated to solving your academic queries and to reinforce learning.
Post completion of the programme, an Advanced Certificate Programme in Machine Learning & NLP would be awarded by IIIT Bangalore.

You can pay the amount using the Credit card option in one shot / part payments, and later you can convert into EMI from your respective bank. The tenures and interest charged will depend on your bank. upGrad will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions.
10. Why is the entire amount blocked on my credit card?
Initially your bank will block the entire amount from your available purchase limit and from your next billing cycle, you will be charged the EMI amount. As you start paying your EMI, your credit limit will be released accordingly. For example, if you have made a payment of ₹100000 on 6-months EMI and your credit limit is ₹200,000 then initially your bank will block your credit limit by ₹100000. After payment of your first month EMI of Rs.15000, the blocked amount will come down to ₹85000.
11. Why is interest getting charged on No Cost EMI?
Your bank will charge you interest. However, this interest charge has been provided to you as an upfront discount at the time of your payment, effectively giving you the benefit of a No cost EMI. The total amount paid during the entire EMI tenure to the bank will be equal to the amount to be paid to upGrad.
Eg. Amount payable to upGrad: INR 405000
Let's say Amount deducted at the time of transaction: INR 379850 (Principal amount) Bank charges interest of 12-15% per annum on INR 379850
[Note: Interest factor is reducing rate and not Flat rate]
EMI AMOUNT = INR 33750 x 12 = INR 405000
Effectively, you have taken loan on 379,850 instead of 405,000
This programme is right for you if you have a Bachelor’s degree with 50% or equivalent passing marks and are interested to learn Natural Language Processing.
