September 29, 2022: The Indian Institute of Technology has launched the Certificate Programme in Machine Learning and Deep Learning to provide skills for learners to design and implement various techniques to develop competencies in these technologies to foster growth in this domain.
The six-month Certificate Programme in Machine Learning and Deep Learning will build competencies in Python programming, including skills to load and pre-process the data from online and offline databases using pandas. It will also equip learners to design and train neural networks using Keras and TensorFlow modules and design various techniques for real-world applications.
Machine learning and deep learning find their applications for product recommendations, online fraud detection, image & speech recognition, natural language processing, virtual assistants, etc. As per Future of Jobs 2020 by the World Economic Forum, machine learning and other new-age technologies have led to several new opportunities and a demand for skilled professionals across sectors. Reports suggest that AI and machine learning investments will grow in India at an impressive CAGR of 33.49 per cent till 2023.
The Certificate Programme in Machine Learning and Deep Learning will be conducted on a state-of-the-art Interactive Learning (IL) platform and delivered in Direct-to-Device (D2D) mode. It follows a proven pedagogy consisting of class exercises, presentations, simulations, hands-on projects, and case studies. The programme will help learners vastly enhance their skillsets by learning subjects such as Deep Learning, Applications of Machine Learning, Data Analysis & Applied Math, and Python Programming.
Indian Institute of Technology Delhi observes that since organisations are investing significantly in machine learning and deep learning technologies to address future challenges, the rapid adoption of tech across industries will lead to opportunities and demand for skilled and highly qualified personnel. The Certificate Programme in Machine Learning and Deep Learning will enable the skilling of talent towards making India among the largest markets for the adoption and use of cutting-edge technologies.
Indian Institute of Technology Delhi:
Indian Institute of Technology Delhi is one of the 23 IITs created to be Centres of Excellence for training, research and development in science, engineering, and technology in India. Established as College of Engineering in 1961, the Institute was later declared as an Institution of National Importance under the “Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act, 1963” and was renamed as “Indian Institute of Technology Delhi”. It was then accorded the status of a Deemed University with powers to decide its own academic policy, to conduct its own examinations, and to award its own degrees.
Since its inception, over 48,000 have graduated from IIT Delhi in various disciplines including Engineering, Physical Sciences, Management and Humanities & Social Sciences. Of these, nearly 5070 received Ph.D. degrees. The number of students who graduated with B.Tech. degree is over 15738. The rest obtained master’s degree in Engineering, Sciences and Business Administration. These alumni today work as scientists, technologists, business managers and entrepreneurs. There are several alumni who have moved away from their original disciplines and have taken to administrative services, active politics or are with NGOs. In doing so, they have contributed significantly to building of this nation, and to industrialisation around the world. IIT Delhi has been ranked consistently in top 5 management institutes and rank 1 institute in Research and Professional Practice as per NIRF 2022 and NIRF 2021 Management Category rankings.
