KnowledgeHut upGrad, Bangalore-based leading technology skilling provider and a part of Asia’s Higher Edtech major, upGrad, today announced the launch of its industry redefining Data engineering and AI Engineering Boot-camps.
With the launch of these courses, KnowledgeHut has become the only company in India that has the competency and depth to provide the most comprehensive package with all the possible tools and technologies needed to cover the entire spectrum in the Data Science category. Over the next 2-3 quarters, KnowledgeHut will take the current 40-50 Data Science courses to more than 100, ensuring that learners are fully equipped with all the tools they may need for their future skills.
AI engineers lead technology’s charge into the future, and it is currently one of the most in-demand roles. AI engineers combine engineering, computer science, and machine learning principles to give machines problem-solving abilities. AI engineers create advanced learning models applicable across industries, including manufacturing, finance, and healthcare, among many others. AI engineers are responsible for some of the most influential inventions like self-driving cars, AI-generated video and music suggestions and predictive analysis in sports, etc.
Similarly, demand for Data Engineers is also skyrocketing. While Data Scientists use their skills to create models and solve problems, data engineers build and manage the infrastructure that sits between data sources and data analytics. Data engineers work in a variety of settings to build systems that collect, manage, and convert raw data into usable information for data scientists and business analysts to interpret. Their ultimate goal is to make data accessible so that organizations can use it to evaluate and optimize their performance, making Data Engineers central to an enterprise’s data team.
LinkedIn’s Emerging Jobs Report ranked data science as the fastest growing segment and has witnessed a growth of over 650% since 2012 and is slated to grow to 230.80 billion dollars by 2026.
Commenting on the launch, Subramanyam Reddy, CEO, and Founder, KnowledgeHut upGrad, said, “India’s data engineering segment is currently pegged at USD 18.2 billion and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 36.7% in the next five years to reach USD 86.9 billion by 2027. The demand for data and AI engineering-focused talent has seen an enormous surge, and most companies are extensively hiring for these roles. These courses are especially critical for learners with some amount of experience who are looking to level up in their careers. Our new engineering boot camps have been specially designed and customized for experienced professionals to equip and empower them with the right skills-sets and keep them in demand for future roles as they evolve in the workplace”.
“Today, multiple sectors, including healthcare, manufacturing, agriculture, fintech, and telecommunications, among others, are deploying data and AI-based solutions that have engineers are the core. With more promising opportunities emerging in this segment, it is crucial that we offer the necessary and relevant training with the required skill competencies and updated domain knowledge. Our courses offer a holistic learning experience including interview training to enable learners to find the best possible job with the best possible pay across the world”, added Mr. Reddy.
