Sharing student experience
Vidyut Sharad Singhania, 24: “The 8-month internship that the programme offers also appealed to me greatly. I interned at Isentia Brandtology Pte Ltd, a media intelligence heavyweight in the region, with a laundry list of global and regional clients. I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to design, develop and deploy a core technical natural language processing-based component for the company. By the end of 8 months, I had raced against time to provide an end-to-end open source solution”.
During the internship, Vidyut picked up a new programming language from scratch- developing algorithms in Python and deploying them on UNIX despite having no prior experience with either. He did so by extensively reading books and blogs, and practising on the datasets available.
Post Study Job Opportunity
The opportunity of post-study-work remains one of the biggest offerings. Among the recently graduated students from the MTech EBAC is Vidyut, now working as a Project Manager and Data Analyst at Latize Pte Ltd, a Singapore- based start-up focused on linked data analytics solutions. His job includes advising and helping the clients derive greater business value from data, by leveraging on a combination of statistical, semantic and syntactic perspectives.
What Vidyut has to say about his current job: “The best part about working at an up-and-coming start-up headquartered in the financial hub of Asia is having the opportunity to work with a gamut of clients – from government agencies to MNCs, – in a variety of roles, most of which are drawn upon and built on what I learnt from the MTech EBAC programme”.
“Applying for the MTech EBAC programme has proven to be one of the intelligent decisions I’ve ever made. I was offered the best opportunities, platforms and networks to develop my skills and abilities in the field of advanced analytics and beyond. Though the course was certainly rigorous and mentally exhausting, it widened my horizons to view situations from a multidimensional perspective – something essential in this field,” he comments.
Of course, Vidyut is one of the many students who have enrolled in NUS MTech EBAC programme who have given positive feedbacks for offering a solid, all-rounded course. If Information Technology interest you, NUS MTech EBAC could be the right course for you. Explore more.
