About the Program

Data science is a “concept to unify statistics, data analysis, machine learning, and their related methods” to “understand and analyze actual phenomena” with data. In other words, the detailed study of the flow of information from structured and unstructured data available in an organization is called data science. It primarily involves obtaining meaningful insights from the data which is processed through analytical study. The current era is becoming a digital space where each organization deals with large amounts of structured and unstructured data daily. Evolving technologies are leading to cost-saving solutions for the storage and analysis of such large data. In the current era, for career progression, one needs to understand the language of data through analytical skills. Hence, it is necessary nowadays, to develop manpower with the skill to perform data analysis to get meaningful information from the data of different domains such as banking and finance, insurance, agriculture, healthcare, retail, education, social media, manufacturing, transportation, entertainment, and so on. 
With the availability of modern technologies of data storage, cleaning, and computing, the study of data science expanded beyond the boundaries of mathematics and statistics. In modern days the study of data science is constituted with the knowledge of mathematics, statistics, and computer science. Data science brings together a lot of skills of these disciplines with adequate domain knowledge to help any organization find ways to i) make major business decisions, ii) reduce costs, iii) get into new markets, iv) launch a new product or service, v) find the sentiment of the customers, vi) recruiting the best talent and so on.
