M.S. in Data Science and Analytics - Batch of 2023
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Eventful - things change here at a fast rate
Tips: You should try to have a positive outlook. Do some research on the subjects that interest you. Focus on statistics & probability. Get understanding of python programming language so as to understand the concepts which are being discussed in the class. Save some case studies on your own.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Professors have good knowledge in their area of expertise. The office hours are really helpful to brainstorm ideas and come out with pointers that can be discussed from different point of view to solve a specific problem related to analytics domain.
Dislikes (Safety): Not safe after 9 PM. After 9 PM be cautious while roaming, prefer to be in groups. Otherwise everything is okay & no need to worry about anything else. Use marta to commute from community to college. Commutation is not an issue. Good connectivity.

Different experience at this university.
Tips: Students should be clear on what is their actual interest, as if what you really want yourself to be. Engineer then which industry and what exactly you wanna work upon. Qa engineer or analyst must know the difference and decide on which industry you want to get into.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Amazing faculty, very understanding very cooperative and enthusiastic. Loved the faculty especially cybersecurity professor, love that professor learnt a lot from him and he helped each and every student of the class.
Dislikes (Student Life): MSIS course in particular is very hectic course. Completing the course in 1 year takes most of your time and effort to excel in each of the subjects. Extremely tense with 4 subjects are supposed to be completed in each semester. Teamwork helps a lot.
