For the year 2021, Glassdoor, a leading internet company on job trends,  named Data Scientist as one of the most desired jobs globally with a median salary of $113,736 with one of the highest  job satisfaction rates. Clive Humby, a leading data scientist famously said “Data is the new oil” in 2006 and today organizations from different sectors are improving their business performance through usage of cutting-edge data analytics platforms. Considering the growing interest and opportunities in this field, Dwarkadas J. Sanghvi College of Engineering has introduced a new branch of engineering named as “Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science)” from the academic year 2020-2021.

For the last many decades, statisticians and computer engineering professionals have been helping industries to improve their business performance. Researches in both these areas were developing new methodologies to improve their respective domains. Data Science is a field which combines the advancements in Analytics and Computer Science to bring insights to decision makers by analyzing vast amounts of data at very high speeds.  

As a part of its commitment to bringing the latest in engineering education to the masses, DJSCE in 2020 is launching this 4-year undergraduate course with modern amenities and infrastructure, state of the art curriculum with experienced and dedicated faculty. The institute will continue to strengthen this branch through active industry – academia association throughout the course duration of four years.

The department started with 60 intake for the academic year 2020–21 and increased to 120 intake in the academic year 2021-22.

Birds Eye View of the Proposed Curriculum

 

DJS S4DS

Society for Data Science (S4DS) is a non-profit professional association that creates a collaborative platform for bringing together technical experts across Industry, Academia, Government Labs and Professional Bodies to promote Innovation around Data Science. IT was founded in 2017, with the vision of empowering people in the field of Data Science through spread of knowledge and wisdom in an intelligent environment to improve life, business and government and prepare tomorrow’s data science researchers to address grand challenge problems.

 

At D. J. Sanghvi College of Engineering, the students of Department of Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science) have formed their students’ chapter “DJS-S4DS” in association with S4DS from the academic year 2021-2022. The objective of the student chapter is to provide a collaborative learning platform beyond the curriculum for the students of various branches in the field of Data Science and Computing. Each member of the DJS-S4DS will be given the opportunity to interact with industry and academicians, to participate in various technical and non-technical events, challenges and to share their research work on international platforms.

DJS Compute

DJS-Compute is a computing club offered by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science), with the objective of providing training and global certification for students. Partnering with Amazon Web Services (AWS), the aim of the club is to train budding developers in the area of computing and analytics. The motive is to groom aspiring students through global certifications. The club intends to conduct inter- level and intra level computing competitions along with interactions with industry experts, thereby providing ample exposure to the industry culture.

Our institution focuses on the advanced academic development of its students and will ensure that this course also enables the students in their academic pursuits in emerging research topics, such as AI in healthcare, climate change modeling and forecasting methods, image analytics, fraud detection, cyber security etc. The opportunity for a student to gain expertise in Data Science has significantly increased in the recent years through programming languages, ML tools and cloud platforms. Going forward, Quantum Computing, Deep Learning, 5G in Communications, Autonomous Driving, Smart Cities, Internet of Things etc. are expected to further boost the new age applications in the field.

Leading universities in Europe and US offers Post-Graduade and Doctoral programmes in various domains of Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science). Keeping pace with these opportunities, Indian and US government offers grants for research and startups to budding engineers, especially in emerging areas of technology.

Below are the list of Data Science related Undergraduate Projects guided by the faculty members in allied branches during the last three academic years in the institute.

Given the increasing demand for such skills within the industry, government and academia, the emerging opportunities for employment are limitless in the near future. According to surveys by leading research firms, almost 70% of all jobs in the future will require analytics or data science skills to be embedded within it. Unlike the past, where computer programming jobs were largely in the Technology sector, data scientists will have a wider range of choices across sectors to choose from.

Based on surveys conducted by leading consultancies and academic institutions like MIT, Stanford, Accenture, PwC and Mckinsey, we at DJSCE have compiled the statistics and analysed the opportunity areas for data scientists across Industry as well as Salary Range and Skill Types. Those details have been outlined in the graph given below. Given our institutes track record of placements, we are confident of placing our graduates in leading Indian and global MNCs.
