Equipping for 21st Century Education

Accreditation Holds the Key

Readying Institutions for Next Level of Data Science Education

WDSI seeks to equip universities affordably to teach and prepare students for high obsolescence 4IR and convergent technologies. On their own, it is impossible for universities to keep their curricula and learning systems tuned to the latest skills and knowledge demands in disciplines like data science, artificial intelligence and blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. Getting accredited by recognized global standards and certification bodies is the surest way for universities to keep their academic systems aligned to what the employers require. Under this initiative, recommended institutions pay subsidized fee to get accredited on especially developed accelerated model that completes the process in 8-12 weeks using entirely digital mode.

How Accreditation Works?

Getting accredited by global standards bodies in areas like data science, Ai, machine learning and blockchain is an institution’s assurance against academic redundancy and stagnation. These critical tech-disciplines generally prove too high-obsolescence for technology educators to keep pace with on their own. It becomes challenging for institutions to introduce new programs and courses that will keep students ready to work on emerging tools and platforms that industry and employers expect them to. Accreditation puts universities almost in the auto-mode, in which the curricula and systems automatically stay synced with the demands of the industry, as they are tied to knowledge frameworks of leading standards bodies in these tech-domains. Accreditation equips universities with the right mechanisms, systems, curricula, certifications and teaching-learning approaches that stay constantly benchmarked with the best in the world.

Data science growth
