Who are AI specialists?

AI specialists are data scientists who can invent new machine learning models, transform them into enterprise-grade applications, deploy, scale and track their performance.  They have an exciting combination of skills in data science, computer science, product engineering and research.  

According to LinkedIn, AI specialists are the most sought after resume globally!

Why do we need a consortium of institutes to offer a program?

INSOFE is a world-class research and education institution with an undiluted focus on Data Science.  Indian Institute of Technology, Ropar and CICE at Carleton University are exceptionally good at computer science, product engineering and research.  

We all decided that the finest faculty from each institute teach their respective strength areas to create the world’s best AI specialist program, PG Certificate with Honours in Data Science.

A word about the reputation and scholarliness of the partner institutes:

IIT Ropar is the highest-ranked Indian university as per Times Higher Education Rankings along with IISC Bengaluru. With 3.99 publications per author, it has one of the highest research productivity amongst Indian Institutes.

Carleton University, Canada’s capital university, strives for innovation in research, as well as in teaching and learning.  In the latest Maclean’s ranking, they stood 5th in Canada in the comprehensive category and 10th in the nation for the best computer science department.

INSOFE’s Data Science certifications are the most recognized worldwide.  They are used as a first-semester curriculum in 4 universities and 9 masters and 1 doctoral program.  It is the only institute in India to offer undergraduate to doctoral degrees in data science.

More about PG Certificate with Honours in Data Science

Postgraduate Certificate with Honours in Data Science is a new-age, interdisciplinary program designed for early-career professionals and exceptional graduates from any discipline of engineering that loves building smart software products and enjoy mathematics and research.

Notice the little diamond at the intersection?  

Yes.  That is what makes one an AI specialist. AI specialists combine learnings from computer science, data science, product engineering and quantitative research to create new products and services powered by AI.


Every course in the program combines the concepts with hands-on exercises to help the student master the theory and apply it.

Here is the progression path:

Students start with Data Science.  They take courses in statistics, machine learning, artificial intelligence and engineering skills (R, Python, Dev ops, Tableau).  To reinforce it further, they take several examinations and hackathons too.    

This is followed by Product Engineering and Research Education.  The students study advanced programming, application architectures.  They analyze some of the most complicated architectures behind world-changing products.  In the quantitative research module, students learn techniques and methods to systematically conduct research.

The education culminates with two hands-on activities;

In the “Scaling and Deployment Bootcamp” students develop a data science application end-to-end and deploy it.

In the thesis, the students dissect an influential research publication. Understand the main findings, build it from the ground up, test it on various additional data sets, validate the hypothesis and document their finding.  This exposes them to systematic research investigations.  They do all this under the guidance of expert scholars from the three institutes.

What are the program’s benefits for students?

  1. The program is co-taught by experts from 3 institutes
  2. First of its kind certification with thesis and bootcamps
  3. Become the first choice for jobs in product companies and research labs of AI

If you love programming and want to spend the rest of your life building cool products and rubbing shoulders with the finest researchers and product engineers in AI, PG Certificate with Honours in Data Science could be the best stepping stone.
