For the year 2020, Glassdoor, a leading internet company on job trends, named Data Scientist as one of the most desired jobs globally with a median salary of $107,801 with one of the highest job satisfaction rates. Clive Humby, a leading data scientist famously said “Data is the new oil” in 2006 and today organizations from different sectors are improving their business performance through usage of cutting-edge data analytics platforms. Considering the growing interest and opportunities in this field, Dwarkadas J. Sanghvi College of Engineering has introduced a new branch of engineering named as “Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science)” from the academic year 2020-2021.
For the last many decades, statisticians and computer engineering professionals have been helping industries to improve their business performance. Researches in both these areas were developing new methodologies to improve their respective domains. Data Science is a field which combines the advancements in Analytics and Computer Science to bring insights to decision makers by analyzing vast amounts of data at very high speeds.
As a part of its commitment to bringing the latest in engineering education to the masses, DJSCE in 2020 is launching this 4-year undergraduate course with modern amenities and infrastructure, state of the art curriculum with experienced and dedicated faculty. The institute will continue to strengthen this branch through active industry – academia association throughout the course duration of four years.
To begin with, the intake of the course will be 60 for the academic year 2020–21.
