The Department of Data Science and Analytics aims to train students in the rapidly growing field of Data Science, to be vibrant research hub in this area and interact with other disciplines to evaluate, analyse and utilize the vast amounts of scientific, social and financial data streaming in every second.
The department formally came into existence in August, 2018 but the University has been offering the program MSc (CS) Big Data Analytics since 2016 in partnership with Tata Consultancy Service (TCS). Out of 12 students form this batch who completed the program 2018, 8 were offered jobs in TCS.

M. Sc. Big Data (2 Years)

The program MSc (CS) Big Data Analytics started in 2016 in partnership with TCS after months of perseverance by Prof Arun K Pujari, the Hon’ble Vice Chancellor and others. The goal of the program is to train students in the emerging field of Data Science and prepare them for one of fastest growing industry of data analytics. Data Science is built on the three pillars of computer science, statistics and mathematics. Our syllabus is designed to reflect this. The principal objectives of the program and the detailed syllabus are provided.

MSc BDA is a two-year (4-semester) program. The final semester is devoted to project work preferably in a relevant industry. Our partnership with TCS entails internships for the students for the final semester who satisfy some basic eligibility criteria. We are negotiating internships in other reputed companies involved in data science and analytics work.

Any science graduate with mathematics is eligible for the MSc BDA program. The program covers some intensive courses in programming in Python, R and Java. In principle, students with no programming experience can pick up the requisite skills but some knowledge of coding will help.
