Data science professionals become experts to extract meaning from large volumes of data, which requires both tools and methods from mathematics, operational research, statistics, computer science, and other related subjects. The objective is to augment managerial decision making from data driven insights. Exploration in the domain is a collaborative approach involving mathematical understanding, business tactics, technological applications and behavioral sciences to help management make data driven decisions. Pedagogy would involve lectures, classroom discussions, group assignments, case studies and hands-on sessions in IIT Delhi.

Transportation is the backbone for the economic and ﬁnancial well-being of any society. Hence, it is essential that the transportation system that involves mobility for goods and people be highly efﬁcient and robust. The two main aspects of transportation are throughput and safety. Throughput measures the quantitative aspect of the efﬁciency of the system, while safety is related to the qualitative aspect.

Materials science involves disparate length and time scales spanning Angstroms to meters and femtoseconds to years depending on the problem of interest. The instructor proposes an intensive twenty-hour course on computational materials science involving lectures and hands-on tutorials in atomistic simulations incorporating semi-empirical potentials. Computers will be needed for tutorials only and will be provided by the host institution (IIT-Delhi) with computational software pre-installed.
