BTech Data Science is a 4 year undergraduate level course that deals with the use of various tools and techniques of science to extract relevant data from a large volume of data available. The course is new and trending and offering students the opportunity to learn techniques and skills like data extraction, analysis of techniques and alike.

 

As this is a newly introduced course and only a few colleges are offering this, therefore this course cannot be pursued from distance learning. The BTech Data Science syllabus comprises subjects like Discrete Structures, Engineering Physics, Mechanical Workshop, Theory of Computation and alike.

 

The minimum eligibility required to pursue this course is aggregate 70% marks in senior secondary examination (10+2) with PCM from a recognised board. A minimum of 50% score is also required in mathematics subject. Few colleges do offer this course on the basis of entrance exams like SUATNPAT and alike.. 

Given below is the list of few of the top BTech Data Science Colleges:

Name of the CollegeLocationAverage Fees
Sharda UniversityUttar PradeshINR 7.48 Lakhs
NMIMS University (Mukesh Patel School of Technology Management and Engineering)MumbaiINR 12.46 Lakhs
