About Programme:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) an interdisciplinary science with multiple approaches and Data Science (DS) is the field of study which encompasses various roles such as data analysts, decision scientists and business intelligence developers. As data is the main oil for every application, DS is helpful for students to draw meaningful insights from big data and acquire skill-sets to deal with numerous real time applications in this field. Since last decade, AI and DS witnessed tremendous growth and dramatic breakthrough innovations applied in almost every sector. Recently, new education reforms introduced AI learning right from school education. Successful MNCs like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Flipkart, twitter etc. uses various AI and DS techniques to discover patterns and trends in user’s data and behavior. Various banking and financial companies like Barclays, HDFC, Citi Bank, Morgan Stanley, Avaya etc. uses AI and DS techniques for risk analysis, share market trends analysis, investment banking.

The department programme is autonomous and utilizing this opportunity, the course curriculum is meeting to the contemporary industry needs. This programme is perfect blend of AI and DS and their applications in the real world problem solving as well as business intelligence. This course has comprehensive coverage of fundamentals of computer engineering along with cross disciplinary skills like statistics, mathematical and logical reasoning, knowledge discovery, visualization, big data analytics etc. Overall the program curriculum is designed in a way that imparts core and necessary skills required in the domain. This specialized course opens many career avenues for aspirants in healthcare, finance, astronomy, agriculture, data security, entertainment, E-commerce, social networking, climatology, biotechnology, genetics, and many more.

The department is offering undergraduate programme with the intake of 180. Self-motivated, strong and high performing faculty are engaged in mentoring students and guiding them to realise their potential and become good ambassadors of the department and in turn institute.

Semester I will be commencing from current academic year and the department is fully committed to impart quality education in this pandemic situation as well. Offline teaching will be resumed as soon as we receive notification from Government of Maharashtra, and SPPU.
