Admissions 2018



CSE in Data Science is offered as a part time programme aiming at the professionals working in the Industry. The programme is for 3 years with classes offered during the week-ends. Currently this programme is not approved by AICTE.

Data science has been in the forefront providing techniques to handle the flood of big data generated across the world. Statisticians and Computer Scientists together are developing the skill set required to collect, process and extract meaningful information from large and diverse data sets. Data visualization allows a way to understand the big data. Data scientists are required by every industry, government organization, and Internet start-ups to financial institutions to handle big data projects at every level.

Estimation by McKinsey and other agencies has reveled that by 2018, there is requirement for more than 2 million data scientists and 1.5 million managers and analysts who understand how to use big data to make decisions. 

This post-graduate programme, which specializes in Data Science along with core Computer Science & Engineering is aimed at enhancing the skill set of engineers to be data scientists. The programme also has adjunct faculty members from industry to share real time case studies.

**CSE Data Science is offered as weekend Programmes for the working professionals. There is no entrance examination for admission to this Programme. Applicants just need to submit the application by selecting Bengaluru as the centre.
