Data Science facilitates to streamline, sort and apply scores information available across the web using Maths, Statistics, Computer Science and Information Science.     

Data Science is the tool behind the online services that we use these days like ordering food, renting cab and other services. The role of Data Science is inevitable right from small services to carry out advanced research. Further, experts in the field of Data Science are in great demand in several domains.    

In this situation, IIT-M offers Certificate, Diploma and Undergraduate programmes in Data Science through online mode.

Course being offered:

Foundational Certificate
