Introducing Masters Programs in Data Science and AI, Co-developed with IBM

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve partnered with artificial intelligence and cloud leader IBM to release four master’s programs in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science.

According to a study by IBM, there will be over 2.7 million data science job openings by 2020. The same study cited machine learning as the second-fasting growing analytical skill within two years at a growth of 56 percent. It’s clear that these two are a top priority in the marketplace today, and as such are a top priority for Simplilearn and it’s future students.

Through this partnership with IBM, our members can access live virtual classrooms and self-paced video courses that combine Simplilearn’s seamless training experience and world-class instructors with IBM’s state-of-the-art labs and course content.  

Key features of the Masters Programs include portfolio-worthy Capstone Projects that demonstrate applied skills, hands-on exposure to today’s most-used tools, 24/7 access to teaching assistants, and industry-recognized certificates.  

“We are delighted to partner with IBM to bring our students the most comprehensive training programs available,” said Krishna Kumar, CEO and founder of Simplilearn. “IBM is known not just for it’s innovation in the world of science, but for it’s dedication to client success. Together with IBM, we’re confident these Master’s Programs will provide everything our students need to launch new careers in data science and AI.”

The four courses will be released in two phases. The Data Scientist Master’s Program and AI Engineer Master’s Program have been released as part of the first phase.

In the second phase, the third and fourth programs, Data Analyst Master’s Program and Data Engineer Master’s Program, will be released in July.

The Data Science Master’s Program covers R, SAS, Python, Tableau, Hadoop and Spark in addition to supervised and unsupervised learning models such as linear regression, logistic regression, clustering, dimensionality reduction, K-NN and pipeline. Learn what other tools and projects are covered in the course by viewing the syllabus.

The AI Master’s Program covers Python libraries like NumPY, SciPy, Scikit and essential Machine Learning techniques such as supervised and unsupervised learning, and advanced concepts covering artificial neural networks and layers of data abstraction, and TensorFlow.

All course content will be accessible on Simplilearn’s learning management system and will follow Simplilearn’s unique blended learning structure, providing learners with expertly-crafted content that’s delivered live and via pre-recorded video to meet the needs of every student’s preference and schedule, followed by quizzes and projects to enforce the retention of each lesson. Teaching assistants and forums provide a collaborative environment to nurture students from foundational concepts all the way through completion.

Upon completion of each program, learners will receive industry-recognized certificates from Simplilearn and IBM to indicate the user has successfully completed all requirements.
