International School of Engineering (INSOFE)

International School of Engineering (INSOFE)
International School of Engineering (INSOFE)
International School of Engineering (INSOFE) is a world class institute focusing currently on Big Data Analytics / Data Science. INSOFE’s flagship offering, ‘Certificate Program in Big Data Analytics and Optimization’ is ranked on par with the offerings at Columbia and Stanford Universities (ranked by INSOFE’s teaching and learning quality is certified by the School of Computer Science (LTI) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and two of their mentors are listed among the 10 Most Prominent Analytics Academicians in India (listed by Analytics India Magazine). The average salary for a fresher after taking INSOFE’s program is 6 lakhs. Last year 58 percent of the total students got a job either during or within one month of the completion of the program.
INSOFE started their first batch in 2011. The institute is running their 16th batch now and plan to train 600 students next year. INSOFE’s typical students are engineers with 2-8 years of work experience who like hands-on programming and mathematics.
Addressing the Challenges
The NASSCOM (India) has pegged the domestic Big Data market to be at $163 million, expected to double in size and reach $375 million by 2018. It has been indicated that the demand for analytics professionals will grow to 2.5 lakh by 2022. Currently, the demand for professionals well versed with big data and analytics far outstrips the supply. The landscape for data science training in India is growing fast. Given the demand, creating large number of high quality hands-on engineers is the challenge. 
INSOFE focuses only on classroom, hands-on training and not E-learning. As classrooms do not scale like E-learning, the institute is evolving interesting hybrid models that scale but not at the expense of rigor. Cost of resources /infrastructure to deliver quality training is high making the fee higher. Though INSOFE offer programs at a fraction of the cost of international universities (along with which we are ranked), they designed an attractive scholarship and paid internship program where selected candidates get full tuition waiver and internships along with stipend. The institute also has a tie up with Credila of HDFC bank to help students with an education loan.
• A 6 month (22 weekends) Certificate Program in Big Data Analytics and Optimization for individuals and nominated corporate employees
• Custom Corporate Training programs
• Setting up Centres of Excellence (CoE) in Big Data Analytics at organizations through mentoring where we help them build a product development or a consulting team
The Uniqueness
INSOFE’s unique features include
• World class mentors who are Ph.D. holders from top universities like Carnegie Mellon, Johns Hopkins, The University of Texas at El Paso, University of Pennsylvania, SUNY – Buffalo, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagne, Stanford, The University of Texas at Austin. 
• Have been actively engaged in building products and consulting with Fortune 500 companies for the past 15-20 years.
A. Bleeding edge content
• Very few programs in the world cover Apache Spark, H2O framework, Singular value decomposition, Deep learning, Spectral methods etc. as part of the curriculum. Less than 1% of data scientists have perhaps heard about these. Our students apply these techniques on real world data with the support/hand holding of in house data scientists.
B. Process, pedagogy and evaluation
• Screening based on mathematical and programming skills. 
• Extremely attractive scholarships (Only certificate program in the world to offer)
• Thorough evaluation based on daily quizzes and end of the course exams
• A capstone project
• Full career support (you can say Hi to many of INSOFE’s alumni at companies like Deloitte, Broadridge, UHG, ZS Associates, Philips, CA Technologies, and Karvy)
 The most important product of INSOFE is class room training where engineers with work experience between 2-8 years enroll. The institute provides corporate training to CA Technologies, Vodafone, Philips, Microsoft, Deloitte, HCL, Cognizant, UHG, DE Shaw, Dr. Reddy’s, Novartis etc. In the USA, INSOFE has clients like Abercrombie & Fitch and Johnson & Johnson. 
The institute has helped ICUBE Pvt. Ltd. build a product INTUCEO, which is used by several Fortune 500 companies and has also rendered its helping hand to Soothsayer LLC build a world-class consulting team that provides solutions to companies like Abercrombie & Fitch, Dunn and Bradstreet, Stanley Steemer etc. 
Organizational Culture
INSOFE constantly strives for excellence with humility and compassion. It believes in doing the best.  To inculcate these qualities, the institute has made tie up with a specialist HR firm to constantly assess the needs of the employees and build suitable actions. To innovate, INSOFE hires really smart mentors and data scientists and challenge them to design the best program in the world and constantly improve it. They spend non-teaching time solving extremely complex problems of the industry. One of the problems on which the institute is currently working on is improving churn prediction rates by 10 percent through better machine learning. Team INSOFE believes when people work on such things, they need to innovate. Then they automatically transfer it to the students in the class.  
The Road Ahead
In the years to come, INSOFE envisions being the best place in the world for students and working professionals to learn Applied Engineering. In future, the institute will start programs in other emerging disciplines while planning to plan to expand across India in 2016.
