This B.Tech program in Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science) is specifically designed and offered by the department of Computer Science and Engineering in response to the rapidly developing field of Data Science. This program has been started with an intake of 60 in the year 2020.
Data scientists have become essential assets in almost all organisations over the past decade. These professionals are well-rounded, data-driven individuals with advanced technical skills who can build complex quantitative algorithms to organise and synthesise large amounts of information used to answer questions and drive strategy in their organisation. This is combined with the communication and leadership experience required to deliver concrete results to various stakeholders within an organisation or business. Data scientists must be curious and must have exceptional industry knowledge and communication skills that enable them to explain highly technical results to non-technical colleagues. To build and analyse algorithms, they must have a strong quantitative background in statistics and linear algebra, as well as programming knowledge with a focus on data warehousing and mining. The CSE programme at MREM is intended to meet the growing demand for qualified data scientists in almost every sector of the economy. Graduates of the programme will be able to work in a variety of industries, including finance, business, economics, and healthcare.
The Department has state-of-the-art infrastructure, computing equipment supported by high-speed internet and wireless networks and highly qualified and experienced teaching faculty with quality publications in Scopus, web of science etc. The “Centre of Excellence” has been established for the research activities, patents and consultancies. Technology Business Incubator (TBI) also helps the technology-based start-ups.
