IIT Guwahati to Offer M.Tech in Data Science

IIT Guwahati will be offering M.Tech programme in Data Science. Three departments of IIT Guwahati, Electronics and Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Mathematics will be offering this interdisciplinary programme. 

Due to the emergence of data science and technologies such as artificial intelligence, IIT Guwahati will now be offering M.Tech programme in data science. Three departments of IIT Guwahati, Electronics and Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics are offering the M.Tech programme in Data Science, which will be an interdisciplinary programme.

There is a need for data-centric learning opportunities as data science has gained a lot of significance in both industry and academics. The new M.Tech programme will open up new opportunities in engineering and science research.

Data scientist positions are also being available wherein the industry seeks trained resources. According to a media report, there has been a talent shortage for analytics and data science professionals in India, with about 97,000 job openings.

The demand-supply gap in this field means good opportunity not only for those who are starting out their career but also for the mid-level professionals who are looking for a career change and want to move to this field.
