Batch 1

"I'm so delighted to announce that I've completed my Data Science and Machine Learning certification from IIT Delhi. I had started this journey of transitioning to Data science a year ago. Managing it with work was a challenge at times. Very satisfied to have completed this. It will give me more confidence in going ahead and working on projects in data science. For beginners wanting to do this course, my advice would be to learn at least the basics of data science like Python fundamentals, Engineering Mathematics, Statistics to make full use of the course as this is in-depth."




Batch 1

"I am happy to announce that I have successfully completed this 6-month course from IIT Delhi in Data Science & Machine Learning. The great learning experience from the IIT Delhi faculty. Thank you, Prof. Agam Gupta, Prof. Hariprasad Kodamana and Prof. Manojkumar Ramteke for sharing immense knowledge with us. Looking forward to doing some exciting projects in this area to strengthen my learning."

"The focus on concepts from the ground up was the best part which enables to build a strong foundation for understanding complex scenarios."

Siddharth Sahany

Batch 3

"In the starting, I wanted to move my career to this field but I had no idea to how to start, what topics to be covered, which concept will be more effective, etc. So, this course helped to explain everything which I was looking for. I have covered maths and stats topics which I haven't revised in very long time. I have learnt lots of new things like machine learning concept, deep learning concept, etc. Now, I only need to brush up my skills in Python and some other coding language and then I am ready to switch my career to data science."

The Learning Experience 

What is it like to learn with the learning collaborator, Emeritus? 

More than 300,000 professionals globally, across 200 countries, have chosen to advance their skills with Emeritus and its educational learning partners. In fact, 90 percent of the respondents of a recent survey across all our programs said that their learning outcomes were met or exceeded. All the contents of the course would be made available to students at the commencement of the course. However, to ensure the program delivers the desired learning outcomes, the students may appoint Emeritus to manage the delivery of the program in a cohort-based manner during the course period the cost of which is already included in the overall Course fee of the course.

A dedicated program support team is available 7 days a week to answer questions about the learning platform, technical issues, or anything else that may affect your learning experience.
