About Program

Amity's PG Program in Data Science is a rigorous program designed by top academicians & experts to help working professionals develop frameworks and acquire skills to take up roles in data science.

  • Data Science Landscape in UAE:
    • Hottest career option for future. Harvard Business Review, termed it the sexiest job of the 21st century. Wired had famously quipped: “Tell your kids to be data scientists, not doctors.”
    • Humongous amount of data being generated by industry. There is a dearth of qualified professionals to make sense of this data.
    • A Data Scientist can now work in an industry s/he wants to and is not restricted to any particular sector. S/he can choose working in business, energy, supply chain, government, or healthcare.
    • Data is reshaping the landscape for many job roles, without knowledge of data it would be tough to sustain jobs in the future.
