With the increase in importance being given to skills over degrees and practical understanding over rote learning, students from non-technical backgrounds are also entering the world of technology through online trainings. Online trainings give equal liberty to students from any stream to explore new career opportunities. It allows affordable and accessible solutions to those who aim to learn new skills while managing their regular study or work schedule. As per Internshala Trainings’ recent data, out of the overall training enrolments, 28% of the enrolments were made for data science training. Most of the non-tech students enrolled in these trainings have either pursued or were pursuing Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) or Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com). Other trainings which attracted non-tech students include web development, ethical hacking, programming with python, and AutoCAD.

Why Data Science?

  1. Data analysis is the need of the hour – For every business to run smoothly, a data-driven approach is a must. Data helps in the analysis of past performances and the insights-driven out of the same help businesses to improve their production, marketing, and sales strategies. Today, almost every industry and its operations take place online accumulating a huge amount of unstructured data every day. This data, whether it is about the users, product, sales, or anything, needs to be properly sorted, organised, and analysed to bring out essential information in the simplest form. As dealing with this data is extremely important for organisations, the requirement of data scientists is also soaring high. Data is present everywhere and thus, it brings out various job opportunities that B.Com, B.B.A., and students from other fields struggle to find in their stream of graduation.
  2. Development of job-specific and soft skills- During their graduation period, commerce and management students get a good understanding of certain skills like Excel and statistics. Enrolling in a data science training helps them to polish these skills and combine non-technical and technical skills to take data-based and analytically driven managerial decisions. The soft skills that you gain during your course of learning such as problem-solving, structural and logical thinking, intellectual curiosity, and effective communication are all transferable. Once learnt, these skills assist in your holistic development.
  3. Practical exposure through a real-world project – Through online data science trainings, you learn Python programming, statistics, predictive modelling, and machine learning, and combine all of these to bring out relevant, comparable, and valuable information from the cluttered unstructured data. During the training, you also work on an industrial project where you design an end-to-end predictive model for a financial firm which helps in strengthening your practical knowledge and adds weight to your resume.
  4. Assists in finding better job opportunities and helps in higher studies – Students are preferring data science over other trainings because it can help them find unique job opportunities in both management and data science. And, even if they do not aim to make their career in the core field of data science, the knowledge that they gain gives them an edge over other students while applying for higher education. Popular modern post-graduation specialisations for management students like international accounting, entrepreneurship, company secretaryship, travel and tourism, and business analytics all require a strong understanding of data combined with the ability to manage businesses.

Career opportunities for Data Science professionals

Data science is the fuel of businesses today and will be the same in the future. Learning data science opens a wide array of job opportunities that will continue to evolve in the upcoming years. Professionals skilled in data science can work in multiple roles such as data and analytics manager, business analyst, database administrator, statistician, data architect, data analyst, quantitative analyst, and data scientist. As per Internshala’s data, on average, data science interns in India get an average stipend of Rs. 9000/- month.

Upcoming medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh will be named after saints and sages

The new medical colleges being opened in Uttar Pradesh will be named after saints and sages.

The state government has issued an order naming four district hospitals that are being converted into medical colleges.

These district hospitals are in Bijnor, Fatehpur, Chandauli, and Siddharth Nagar.

The Bijnor medical college has been named after Mahatma Vidur, a philosopher during the Mahabharata era and uncle of the Pandavas and Kauravas.

The Chandauli medical college has been named after Baba Keenaram, said to be the founder of the Aghori sect.

The Siddharth Nagar district hospital will be called Madhav Prasad Tripathi Medical College after the BJP politician from the region. Tripathi, popularly known as Madhav Babu, was also the first Uttar Pradesh BJP chief. He was elected MP from Domariyaganj in 1977, besides being two times Jan Sangh MLA and also a member of the UP legislative council.

The Fatehpur hospital has been named Amar Shaheed Jodha Singh Ataiya Thakur Dariyawn Singh Medical College, after the freedom fighter of 1857.

Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has picked India as the favourite to win the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Oman and United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Inzamam feels that the Virat Kohli-led India have a greater chance of winning the trophy as the conditions in the Gulf nations are similar to the subcontinent, which makes India the most dangerous side in the event, according to Inzamam.

"In any tournament, it cannot be said for certain that a particular team will win' It's all about how much chance do they have of winning it. In my opinion, India have a greater chance than any other team of winning this tournament, especially in conditions like these. They have experienced T20 players as well," said Inzamam on his YouTube channel.

He said more than the Indian batters, the bowlers have a lot of experience of playing in the conditions. The Indian Premier League (IPL) was played recently in UAE and most of the Indian bowlers did well in that leg.

Inzy heaped praises on the Men in Blue for the confident manner in which they chased the target against Australia on a challenging track without needing Kohli's batting prowess.

"India played their warm-up fixture against Australia rather comfortably. On subcontinent pitches like these, India are the most dangerous T20 side in the world. Even today, if we see the 155 runs they chased down, they did not even need Virat Kohli to do so," he added.

Though he did not pick any favourite, Inzamam termed the India-Pakistan clash in the Super 12 on October 24 as the 'final before the final' and said the team winning it will go into the remaining matches high on morale,

"The match between India and Pakistan in the Super 12s is the final before the final. No match will be hyped as much as this one. Even in the 2017 Champions Trophy, India and Pakistan started and finished the tournament by facing each other, and both the matches felt like finals. The team winning that match will have their morale boosted and will also have 50 percent of pressure released from them," Inzamam added. (IANS/JB)

The skin is constantly exposed to harsh chemicals and pollutants when you're outside which is why using a protective and soothing moisturiser while going out is necessary.
