In 2023, we have run a series of interactive sessions designed to help students gain admission into advanced-tech disciplines including artificial intelligence, machine learning and computer science. The events were run in collaboration with our partners Florida Atlantic University and DePaul University.
Demonstrating the popularity of technology degrees, and high demand for technology jobs, almost 500 students participated in the learning sessions. The four sessions were held across India, in Mumbai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, and Anand.
The events consisted of seminar-style lessons led by an esteemed panel comprising Harshal A Sanghvi, Research Associate, Florida Atlantic University and Medical Physical Assistant at South Florida Proton Therapy Institute (Proton International); Professor Jacob D Furst, DePaul University; and Dr. Zafar Iqbal Associate Professor of Marketing, DePaul University’s Driehaus College of Business and Kellstadt Graduate School of Business.
Karan Lalit, Regional Director, India, Study Group says, “The number of Indian students seeking an international education with our support has doubled since 2020. We expect the popularity of universities in the UK and USA to continue growing in the coming years, thanks to their world-renowned reputations for academic quality and employability. There is particular interest in science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) studies, which will no doubt increase following the news that three centers of excellence for artificial intelligence will be established in Indian institutions; a move that we believe will enable Indian students to learn in-step with the ever-evolving global technology landscape.”
Harshal A Sanghvi, Research Associate, Florida Atlantic University and Medical Physical Assistant at South Florida Proton Therapy Institute (Proton International), says, “The applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence have been expanding rapidly in a wide variety of fields, including the medical and industrial robotics, education, government as well as other fields. Students who are interested in pursuing a career in the fields of computer engineering, computer science, artificial intelligence, or data science will find a wealth of opportunities available to them. These sessions will go a long way in helping the students become attuned with both studying and living in American universities.”
Jacob D Furst, Professor in the Jarvis College of Computing and Digital Media (CDM) at DePaul University says, “Studying artificial intelligence, machine learning and advanced computing in American universities is a popular choice for many international students. We have a strong reputation for providing quality education and the abundance of cutting-edge research and development in these fields. DePaul University is an eminent institution that offers several new-age tech programs that can help Indian students become proficient across numerous digital avenues in today’s world. This event will prove immensely valuable for countless students from India who aspire to study in universities like DePaul and carve an illustrious growth trajectory in the future.”
Both Florida Atlantic University and DePaul University offer a range of specialised courses including bachelor and master across computer engineering, computer science, artificial intelligence, data science, and biomedical engineering. These are in addition to PhD programmes offering many research opportunities.
