Research Division of Advanced Data Science


Data is the new Oil; and we are seeing a global demand for Data Driven Engineering.   In order to align with this growing trend, the Research Division of Advanced Data Science was formed at VIT Chennai. We intend to bring together a multidisciplinary research team covering a wide spectrum of domains to handle challenging real-life problems. The primary mission of this research division is, to make sense out of data for the benefit of mankind.

VIT Chennai is strategically located close to several Industrial and IT Zones. Almost all manufacturing industries are currently looking for solutions to seamlessly transform from Industry 3.0 to 4.0.  The Research Division of Advanced Data Science can support these industries through collaborative teams to identify consultancy projects, student internship projects and research based projects for development of futuristic technologies.

We are interested in International collaboration with academia and industry. We are keen on nurturing and incubating innovative ideas to support indigenous development of technology. We also look forward to working collaboratively with AI based Start-ups.
