Able mentors including industry experts assigned to the students, along with a dedicated career services department, ensures that the students receive hundred percent support for their aspirations.
In the past ATLAS fellows have been placed in top organizations including Bain & Company, Infosys, TCS, KPMG, PWC, Deloitte, and many more. For those with aspirations to study further, ATLAS fellows have previously received admission to top-ranked institutions including Columbia University, London Business School, New York University, University of Technology – Sydney, Imperial College. Also, the program partners, INSOFE, enable the ATLAS AI-ML students to be eligible for an expedited Master’s program at the Case Western Reserve University and the University of Strathclyde, which are top destinations for students pursuing AI-ML in particular.
Talking about the B.Sc Hons in Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning program, Siddharth Shahani, Co-Founder & Executive President, ATLAS SkillTech University said, “Over the years, the percentage of organizations that embedded at least one AI capability in their business processes has more than doubled. The demand for AI and ML will only grow exponentially across industries. This program at ATLAS will create future leaders of technology who will drive this revolution. The specialization in AI and ML aims to build a workforce that’s not only skilled with the right knowledge of technology but also has the vision and leadership skills to anticipate and address global challenges.”
Given the competitiveness of the applicants who have already applied since the program was launched, admissions to this program are about to conclude this month. Amongst the other schools at ATLAS, the admission cycle is in its concluding stages for the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs.
