Data Science is the future of Artificial Intelligence. As the world entered the era of big data, handling it was the main challenge and concern for the enterprise industries until 2010. All the ideas which you see in Hollywood sci-fi movies can turn into reality through Data Science. Unlike data in the traditional systems which was mostly structured, today most of the data is unstructured or semi-structured. A Data Scientist, according to Harvard Business Review, “is a high-ranking professional with the training and curiosity to make discoveries in the world of Big Data”. Therefore it comes as no surprise that Data Scientists are coveted professionals in the Data Analytics and IT industry. With experts predicting that 40 zettabytes of data will be in existence by 2020, Data Science career opportunities will only shoot through the roof and we’re looking to grow as a premier MTech college in Gurgaon, Haryana.The shortage of skilled professionals in a world which is increasingly turning to data for decision making has also led to the huge demand for Data Scientists in start-ups as well as well-established companies. More than 50,000 jobs in Data Science and Machine Learning are lying vacant in India, for lack of skilled professionals, and as one of the best private engineering universities in NCR, we’re looking to close the gap. A McKinsey Global Institute study states that by 2019, the US alone will face a shortage of about 190,000 professionals with deep analytical skills. To meet this need of the hour, The NorthCap University is stepping towards inculcating the required skills in our students to be future Data scientists, Data engineers, or Business Analysts.
