INSOFE, INDIA and Case Western Reserve University, USA announce the launch of a 1st of its kind MS in Core Engineering Disciplines and Data Science


Departments of Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering from CASE Western Reserve University, School of Engineering joined hands with International School of Engineering (INSOFE) to offer Masters degrees with dual specializations (Core and Data Science/AI)


The program starts with 15 credits of Data Science education at INSOFE. Once these credits are completed, the remaining credits of course work will be delivered at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.  

Major benefits of the program
·         Upon successful completion, the student gets a fully accredited Master’s Degree by the Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland OH and hence will be able to benefit from 3 years of OPT (Subject to approval by USCIS).
·         The programs are designed such that any engineering student can choose any discipline provided they have the right mathematical background.
·         The students once selected through the interview process become eligible for GRE/TOEFL waiver and $15,000 tuition fee waiver 

Speaking on the occasion Dr. Venkataraman Ragu Balakrishnan, Dean of the Case School of Engineering said “The Case School of Engineering at Case Western Reserve University recognizes the importance of Data Science's role in the industry and across the engineering disciplines. Our dual specialisation master's degree programs provide a rigorous curriculum based in Data Sciences and designed to help our graduates stand out in their field. I offer my sincerest welcome to the new students joining our programs through our partnership with INSOFE.

Dr. Dakshinamurthy V Kolluru, President and Co-Founder, INSOFE said “As practicing Deep Learning has become accessible, organizations are working on complex problems and solving important issues using Data Science.  Hence engineers who understand their domain and data science are the need of the hour.

Mr. Ankush Gupta from ZS associates said “The Lifesciences industry is at a cusp where AI and Data Science is helping drive improved Commercial and Health outcomes. For example, how can Pharma companies better engage with healthcare physicians OR predict patient events to drive preventive care and completion of therapy! To solve such problems, we at ZS believe in developing experts who understand Industry and Data Science deeply. This program has a similar dual objective and feels like the right foundational step to build future experts.”


Mr. Gaurav Agrawal, Head of Education USA, INSOFE and CEO, Soothsayer Analytics, USA based Data Science & A.I. Consulting Company, said “This Master’s program will give a unique opportunity to the youth from India to excel in Global marketplace by having unparallel education in Data Science and improve employment opportunities for the youth and position India as a top destination for such talent”  Mr Agarwal thanked the media persons for the presence and support.
