IIT Roorkee launches 2 new online certificate programmes.

IIT Roorkee has recently announced two online certificate programmes AI and Machine Learning, and Data Science.

IIT Roorkee has recently announced two online certificate programmes — Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning, and Data Science — in partnership with Coursera. IIT Roorkee has scheduled to launch both these programs on Coursera at the beginning of 2021.

The six-month certificate programme in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will have video lectures, hands-on learning opportunities, team projects, tutorials, and workshops, an official statement said.

“In addition to providing the coding knowledge and mathematics necessary for building AI and ML expertise, the program 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

Importance of learning Data Science

The certificate program 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 algorithms.

No prior 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 fulfil the goal of inclusive education of the New Education Policy,” Prof Ajit K Chaturvedi, Director, IIT Roorkee, said in a statement.

Prof Chaturvedi also added that “Further, this partnership will help us reach out to a global audience of students and professionals aspiring for quality teaching in these sought-after areas.”

Apart from IIT Roorkee, 150 top universities around the world, including Yale University, Stanford and Imperial College of London offer programmes on Coursera.
