Post Graduate Diploma in Data Science


Data science is a multi-disciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge and insights from the huge amount of data-structured, semi-structured and unstructured-that is being generated every second. Digging in deep at a granular level to mine and understand complex behaviours, trends and inferences, data science is about gaining hidden insights that help and enable companies to make smarter business decisions.

  • Online marketplace behemoths use Data Science to identify major customer segments and unique shopping behaviours, which helps them with recommendation engines for targeted messaging catering to different market audiences.
  • Streaming content providers use data science to study viewing patterns and thus understand what drives user interest to accordingly create and deliver curated content.
  • Multinational FMCG majors use data science to more clearly understand future demand, and thus plan for and optimise production and distribution.

Data scientists explore data, understand and discover patterns, apply quantitative techniques to process data, build testing and training models and recommend action based on data analysis and insights. This data-driven insight is central to providing strategic guidance on how to act on findings.

Intel in the AI space

Intel is an American multinational corporation headquartered in Santa Clara, California, in Silicon Valley. The brand works with ecosystem partners to provide technologies that power a comprehensive, advanced analytics solution, from providing big data infrastructure to contributing to open-source projects. Intel’s strategy is to help ensure that every data scientist, developer and practitioner has access to the best platform and easiest starting point to solve the AI problem being tackled from the data centre to the edge.

  • Data-based decisions not only make mathematical but also business sense
  • India’s analytics, data science and big data industry is currently pegged at $2.71 billion annually in revenues, growing at a consistent rate of 33.5% (CAGR)
  • Market leaders heavily invest in data science in various sectors such as:
    • Telecommunication
    • Healthcare
    • Fintech
  • Demand for data scientists and data analysts in India has grown at a whopping rate of ~400% from 2017 to 2018
  • Supply grew at a bleak 19%

In association with Intel Corporation, one of the leading technology giants as knowledge partner, TPL’s objective is to reduce the supply-demand gap by creating equipped and expert data scientists out of young professionals.
