Apart from the Curriculum, students also attend bootcamps to sharpen programming skills and its application in solving Data Science Problems in addition to working on Live Projects. Students also get to take part in hackathons that are carefully designed by INSOFE experts to enhance learning and practical skills, to provide hands-on experience, foster critical thinking, collaboration and time management, said a release.
Dr. Dakshinamurthy V Kolluru, President and Co-Founder, INSOFE said: “We put together an online program that involves as much of interaction as a classroom program, as much of guidance and as small groups as a classroom education platform. So in this time where we are all confined to our homes, you still can utilize this time to get that same quality of classroom learning that INSOFE is always known for and use that to transform yourself into a world class Data Scientist”, Dr Dakshinamurthy adds further.
Dr. Sridhar Pappu, Executive VP Academics and Co-Founder, INSOFE added saying “The PGP Live program offers, Live lectures by accomplished professors of INSOFE, Live Labs where we use tools to have the assignment done in real time with an automatic grading system in addition we have live mentoring where every week a data scientist will have a reserved slot for a student and for a small group of students after each module of the course, PGP Live brings the effectivity of a classroom program to online learning.”
