“This first-of-its-kind program makes it possible for students to study from IIT Madras without attempting the intensely-competitive Joint Entrance Examination (JEE). This directly benefits the students from rural areas and economically disadvantaged backgrounds for whom attending JEE coaching classes would be a significant hurdle. The program also offers up to 100% scholarships for deserving students in financial need.

This course is designed to offer students multiple entry and exit options where the learner can earn a certificate, diploma, or degree – depending upon the level they are leaving the course at. This provides flexibility to learners and empowers them to choose what they want to accomplish through this programme. These multiple entries and exits are part of the flexibilities offered under the NEP.

In the course, students will learn how to manage data, visualize patterns to gain managerial insights, model uncertainties, and build models that assist in producing forecasts to make effective business decisions. Through extensive hands-on training and experiential learning, the students are also well trained to meet the industry standards, the IIT said adding that it will also facilitate internships and placements for the students who have completed the diploma level of the programme.
