KnowledgeHut upGrad Launches Data Engineering and AI Engineering Bootcamps – India Education | Latest Education News | World Education News
New Delhi — KnowledgeHut upGrad, Leading Technology Skills Provider Based in Bangalore and part of Asia’s major Higher Edtech, upGradtoday announced the launch of its bootcamps redefining data engineering and AI engineering.
With the launch of these courses, KnowledgeHut has become the only company in India that has the skills and depth to deliver the most comprehensive package with all possible tools and technologies needed to cover the entire spectrum in the Data Science category. . Over the next 2-3 quarters, KnowledgeHut will expand the current 40 data science courses to over 100, ensuring learners are fully equipped with the tools they need for the future.
Artificial intelligence engineers are leading the charge of technology into the future and it is currently one of the most in-demand roles. AI engineers combine the principles of engineering, computer science, and machine learning to give machines problem-solving capabilities. Artificial intelligence engineers create advanced learning models applicable to all industries, including manufacturing, finance, and healthcare, among others. Artificial intelligence engineers are responsible for some of the most influential inventions such as self-driving cars, AI-generated video and music suggestions, and predictive analytics in sports, etc.
Likewise, the demand for data engineers is also skyrocketing. While Data Scientists use their skills to build models and solve problems, Data Engineers build and manage the infrastructure that sits between data sources and data analysis. Data engineers work in a variety of settings to create systems that collect, manage, and convert raw data into information that data scientists and business analysts can use to interpret. Their ultimate goal is to make data accessible so that organizations can use it to assess and optimize their performance, placing data engineers at the heart of the enterprise data team.
LinkedIn’s Emerging Jobs Report ranked data science as the fastest growing segment and has grown over 650% since 2012 and is expected to reach $230.80 billion by 2026.
Commenting on the launch, Subramanyam Reddy, CEO and Founder, KnowledgeHut upGrad said, “India’s data engineering segment is currently pegged at USD 18.2 billion and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 36.7% over the next five years to reach USD 86.9 billion by 2027. The demand for Talent focused on data engineering and AI has seen a huge increase, and most companies are hiring heavily for these positions. These courses are especially important for learners with some experience looking to advance in their careers. Our new engineering bootcamps have been specifically designed and customized for experienced professionals to equip and empower them with the right skills and keep them in demand for future roles as they grow in the workplace.”
“Today, multiple industries including healthcare, manufacturing, agriculture, fintech, and telecommunications, among others, are deploying data and AI-driven solutions with engineers at the heart. With more promising opportunities emerging in this segment, it is crucial that we provide the necessary and relevant training with the required skills and up-to-date domain knowledge. Our courses provide a holistic learning experience, including interview training to enable learners to find the best possible job with the best possible salary, across the globe”, Mr. Reddy added.
As part of the bootcamps, KnowledgeHut programs will be offered in flexible self-paced and blended online learning formats for an integrated learning experience. The Data Engineering bootcamp will be structured in two phases. In the basic phase, candidates will learn about cutting-edge tools and technologies, including data warehousing, Linux, Python, SQL, Hadoop, MongoDB, big data processing, big data security, AWS, and more. In the advanced learning phase, learners will design and build databases, capture and analyze data, build APIs with CRUD functionality, prepare data models, and more. As is the case with all Knowledgehut bootcamps, the courses will empower learners to strengthen their portfolios, giving them the ability to handle complex business problems in the data engineering and data science environment. The AI Engineering course is designed with a problem-solution approach where learners will gain insight into deploying the basics of Python, statistics and mathematics, machine learning, and neural networks.
Besides the full course curriculum, Knowledgehut bootcamps also have the advantage of being on the PRISM Platform, KnowledgeHut’s flagship learning experience platform. PRISM’s user-friendly dashboard offers learners an immersive 360-degree learning experience, where instructor-led, live interactive sessions are combined with micro-learning modules. Learner understanding is assessed in real time and reinforced through quizzes, assessments, assignments and knowledge retention projects. With a focus on Knowledgehut outcomes, PRISM’s comprehensive assessment framework matches real job roles with the mix of skills a learner needs to succeed. Every learning asset on PRISM is mapped to this hierarchical framework, and as learners progress through the program, their macro-level progress is observed and fed into PRISM’s reporting framework which provides realistic information about learner performance and progress.
