PG Diploma in Data Analysis

Data Science refers to extraction of knowledge from large volumes of data that are structured or unstructured, which is continuation of data mining and predictive analytics. It involves different categories of analytical approaches for modeling various types of business scenarios and arriving at solution and strategies for optimal decision-making in marketing, finance, operations, organizational behavior and other managerial aspects. This new field of study breaks down into a number of different areas, from constructing big data infrastructure and configuring the various server tools that sit on top of the hardware, to performing the analysis and developing the right transformations to generate useful results.

Preamble: Data Science refers to extraction of knowledge from large volumes of data that are structured or unstructured, which is continuation of data mining and predictive analytics. It involves different categories of analytical approaches for modeling various types of business scenarios and arriving at solution and strategies for optimal decision-making in marketing, finance, operations, organizational behavior and other managerial aspects. This new field of study breaks down into a number of different areas, from constructing big data infrastructure and configuring the various server tools that sit on top of the hardware, to performing the analysis and developing the right transformations to generate useful results.

Objective of the Course: The Post Graduate Diploma in Data Science & Analytics a unique 6 month (840 Hours) program offered by NIELIT Chennai is an excellent blend of knowledge and practice in the field of Data Science and its industrial applications. The course is NSQF aligned with Level 8. The program is targeted for creating qualified Data Science professionals. The Program also offers six weeks of hands-on real – life analytical projects for participants to get equipped with strong analytical and programming which makes them highly demanding and employable on completion of the program.

The objective of this program is to make Data Scientists and Data Analysts. There is a huge demand for resources skilled in Data Science. The MCKINSEY Global Institute has predicted that in forthcoming years by 2020, the world will face a shortage of  38-40 million highly skilled manpower with deep analytical skills that can leverage data analysis to make effective decisions for their organizations. So it is quite obvious that existing resources along with new candidates who are interested in perusing career in this field needs to be trained. Our objective is to create a pool of talent who can meet this demand. This course is meant to sensitize students for computational statistics applications and usage as well as provide hands-on experience with solving real world data science issues.
