An Enhancing Professional Capacities (EPC) session on Data Science and its Applications was recently arranged by Professional Development Centre for the students of DSU. Ms. Behjat Qurban, Head of AI & Analytics, Learning & Development Lead, Deloitte UK and Konain Qurban, CEO, Frontier Technology Institute addressed a class full of keen students wanting to know more about the real world applications of this data science. The speakers talked about the emerging field of Data Science, its prospects in Pakistan and globally along with the benefits and challenges it offers to institutions and corporations. Drawing from her experience at Deloitte UK, Ms. Behjat also shared interesting anecdotes on how data improves long term performance and how it should be documented and stored for better decision making. The session concluded with an interactive Q&A round.
This EPC session was conducted as part of the University’s mission to make the curriculum more current and industry-relevant, by inviting practitioners who share their professional knowledge and insights on application of the concepts taught in our classrooms.
