Data has become critical to the success of any organisation and data scientists, like domain experts, play an important role in strategic decisions. According to the World Economic Forum in upcoming years, skills will be more significant than job titles, as the labour market evolves toward multi-faceted professionals rather than singularly specialised ones. With this new trend data science can align your profession with the new demands of the industry/academia.

The Digital University Kerala and its parent organisation, IIITM-K, are well-known for their contributions to Data Science, Analytics, Machine Learning, and Big Data Technology. DUK plans to offer MSc in Data Analytics with three different specialisations from 2022-2023 academic year onwards, namely Geoinformatics, Computational Science, and BioAI. These programmes are carefully designed to meet the needs of data science experts in a wide range of scientific domains.
