B.Tech (Hons) Computer Science and Engineering- Data Science


B.Tech CSE (Computer Science and Engineering) with specialization in Data Science refers to the skills, technologies and practices involved in the continuous iterative exploration and investigation of business performance to gain insight and drive planning. It uses statistical analysis, including explanatory and predictive modelling and fact-based management, to drive decision making. Data Science depends on sufficient volumes of high-quality data; when that volume is large, it is called Big Data.

The four-year program is offered in association with IBM. Students learn how companies leverage advanced analytics to obtain a rich and consolidated view of their customers, enabling them to determine the next best action for optimising customer interaction.

The core contents of the B.Tech CSE in data science course include Statistical Techniques/Predictive and Descriptive analytics; R Programming Language/SPSS /Python; Cognos/Infosphere/Weka; Hadoop/Map Reduce; Concepts of Data Mining and Data Warehousing; Mobile Analytics; Operation Research/IBM ILOG CPLEX; and Content Analytics/Social/Sentiment analytics.

UPES’ curriculum framework is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. Along with the core subject, students have the option to choose from subject-focused specialisations. They are also allowed to choose minor/exploratory subject from other schools at UPES that are: School of Engineering, School of Computer Science, School of Law, School of Business, School of Health Sciences, School of Design, School of Modern Media, and School of Liberal Studies.

Further, based on the multifaceted needs of the global workplace and evolving lifestyles, the curriculum offers Signature and Life-Skills courses through School for Life. To round off this learning experience, students are required to do mandatory internships in the social sector, government/public sector, and industry. The combinations available for students to pick and choose from are endless, ensuring both depth and width of knowledge.
