New Delhi: Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee announced two online certificate programmes on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning & Data Science. Both courses will be available on Coursera, an online app, from early 2021.
The six-month certificate course will have video lectures, hands-on-learning opportunities, team projects, tutorials and workshops.
“In addition to providing coding knowledge and mathematics necessary for building AI and ML expertise, the programme will also teach classical ML techniques and provide hands-on programming experience with Tensorflow for model building, robust ML production, and powerful experimentation,” the statement added.
“The certificate programme in Data Science will help learners to develop Python and SQL programming skills necessary for a career in data analytics and provide knowledge on machine-learning algorithm. No knowledge of coding in Python, R or SQL is required to apply for the programme,” IIT Roorkee said.
“We are delighted to partner with Coursera to help fulfill the goal of inclusive education of the New Education Policy. Further, this partnership will help us reach out to a global audience of students and professionals aspiring for quality teaching in the sought-after areas,” said Director, IIT Roorkee, Prof. Ajit K Chaturvedi.
