Witnessing its tremendous potential to rule the World of Technology, NSHM School of Engineering & Technology offers a new specialization – B.Tech. in Data Science. It is a 4-year undergraduate programme that trains students to learn about various tools and techniques of machine learning, applied statistics, mathematics and become skilled data scientists.
Data Science is taking centre stage in all areas—business and industry, public policy, the life sciences, natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences. This field has grown rapidly in recent years as a result of the increasing availability of large data sets and the opportunities and challenges that they present. Big Data Analytics help organizations harness their data and use it to identify new opportunities. It leads to smarter business moves, more efficient operations, higher profits and more satisfied customers. NSHM is now among the few Data Science colleges in West Bengal offering a B. Tech degree after witnessing its big impact on industry. In B. Tech. in Data science programme, one deals with both structured and unstructured data as well as algorithms that involve predictive analytics.
When people were being laid off due to Covid-19 pandemic, around 93,000 jobs in Data Science were vacant at the end of August 2020 in India. Demand for skilled professionals in Data Science and Analytics is increasing not just in India but across the world.
Here are some of the roles a Data Science professional can look forward to in major organizations:
programming system, structure, numerical method problems, function, pointers, array structures and files handing process,compiler, interpreter, shell, problem solving using C and/or R and/or python
OOPS, object oriented programming language and apply programming conept to create class & its objects for solving inheritance,polymorphism,applets, swing programming etc.
computational efficiency of the principal algorithms – sorting, searching, hashing, Identify appropriate data structure & algorithmic methods

Data Science is still a niche field in the massive global IT market. This 4-year undergraduate programme will train students to learn about various tools and techniques of machine learning, applied statistics, mathematics to become a skilled data scientist. There is still a huge skill gap in India due to the steep learning curve of this subject. Demand for skilled professionals in Data Science and Analytics is increasing not just in India but across the world. NSHM will train the students with knowledge and skills suitable for today’s dynamic job scenario.
