Data Science and Engineering - Overview

Program Description

The B.Tech program in Data Science & Engineering trains engineering graduates to be skilled Data Scientists. The emphasis is on core data science subjects along with the related computational mathematics, statistics, and computer science subjects. The program introduces students to the various application domains like finance, business, and healthcare wherein data science can be used to make informed decisions. The course is a multi-campus model and promotes one-semester suggested student mobility in 4/5/6th semester, between the MAHE Manipal, Manipal University Jaipur, and Sikkim Manipal Institute of Technology campuses. 


Data Science is a unique multidisciplinary confluence of Computer Science, Computational Mathematics, Statistics and Management. Data engineering involves data collection methods, designing enterprise data storage and retrieval.  The core data science subjects focus on data analytics, visualization, predictive modeling and analytics for data-driven decision making.  Knowledge representation, machine learning, artificial intelligence, deep learning will be taught with relevant case studies.  The students can study industry-specific, custom-designed program electives on blockchain technologies, quantum computing, data forensics, data privacy, algorithmic trading, and data security.  Students can also opt for a minor specialization in either business, finance or healthcare analytics.

Career Prospects

The Institution’s placement cell, industry collaborators, and alumni network will facilitate placement and internships as data scientists, data analysts, and data engineers. The course targets placements and internships in top data science companies like CapGemini, Cartesian Consulting, Oracle, Publicis Sapient, Wipro Ltd,   and in domains such as finance, business, economics, and healthcare. The Institution has also tied up with foreign universities and promotes a semester abroad. On completion of three years of the B.Tech course, students can opt for an integrated Master’s program in a partner university abroad.
