FunctionUp, India’s leading placement bootcamp for engineering and data science, has recently launched a Data Science programme specifically designed to prepare students for US-based remote jobs. The programme stands out because it combines live classes with industry experts, personalised doubt-clearing sessions, and high-level projects.
As a part of the initiative, students can work on more than ten industry-grade major projects and over 40 minor projects, including projects on generative AI modules such as ChatGPT 4, Financial Fraud Detection, and Autonomous Driving Cars. Furthermore, the programme also offers training in industry-standard tools, frameworks, and libraries used by thousands of companies worldwide, an official statement said.
Sharing his experience, Akash Giri, a 2019 Engineering graduate, said:
In just a month, I’ve gained immense knowledge and have already accomplished so much. Unlike other Data Science courses, FunctionUp’s program stands out as it provides an opportunity to work as a professional on real-life projects, giving us invaluable hands-on experience with industry problems.
The Data Science programme offers several advantages over similar programmes offered by other colleges, including practical, hands-on learning, live classes with industry experts and personalised 1:1 doubt-clearing sessions, aiming to train over 3,000 professionals in the next ten months.
Founded by Bharat Gupta and Pritesh Kumar in 2021, FunctionUp offers online live classes, educational content, and training sessions for learners to secure high-paying jobs as software developers. The platform’s business model is Pay after Placement, where candidates pay tuition fees after getting their first salaries. Headquartered in Bangalore, the startup has limited seats for learners with stringent selection criteria. With more than 1,000 active learners, the platform aims to be the country’s largest and most aspirational coding platform.
