Great Learning offers data science bootcamp run by MIT faculty

Empowers learners globally to derive meaningful insights from available data

Great Learning, a professional learning company, has launched ‘Applied Data Science Bootcamp,’ an online programme in collaboration with the faculty members of Massachusetts Institute of Technology Institute of Data, Systems, and Society (MIT IDSS) for learners globally. This 12-week online programmeme is for students and working professionals who aim to develop skills in Data Science and Machine Learning. Co-developed and delivered live by MIT IDSS faculty and Great Learning, the programmemee will be delivered on the Great Learning platform.

Personalised mentorship

The unique feature of the programme is the ‘live online classes’ conducted by five highly renowned MIT faculty members. Additionally, learners will have personalised mentorship and hands-on support through Great Learning data science practitioners focused on equipping learners with the requisite knowledge and skills to apply data science in practice. The 12-week programme also includes six hands-on projects and a three-week capstone project, giving the participants applied, practical experience. The participants of this programme, on successful completion, will receive a certificate of completion.

Learners will be able to explore two major realms of machine learning — deep learning and neural networks — applicable for solving complex business problems. It begins with foundational modules in python and statistical science, then moves on to the core curriculum and practical projects covering time series analysis, recommendation engines, regressions, neural networks, computer vision and natural language processing.

Top notch quality

Mohan Lakhamraju, Founder and CEO, Great Learning said, “This cutting-edge programme in data science together with experts from a globally top-ranked university like MIT give learners an opportunity to learn from the very best on our planet. It also fulfils our mission to enable students everywhere to transform their careers through high quality learning”.

Prof Devavrat Shah, Professor, MIT IDSS said, “The mission of IDSS is to support data science education not only at MIT, but around the world. This ‘Applied Data Science Bootcamp,’ led by MIT faculty and available entirely online via collaboration with Great Learning, offers a crash course in the skills needed to empower learners and organisations of all kinds to derive meaningful insights from available data.”
