Data Science with Python Workshop organized by CSE Department CGC COE under the aegis of IETE Student Forum on 8th August 2019

Event objective:Department of CSE, CGCCOE in collaboration with IETE Student Forum, organized Data Science with Python workshop on 8th August, 2019. The event was organized for the sole purpose of learning and to provide the hands on experience on the concept of data science using python.It is the right time for the students to exploit themselves emerging field of data science to their advantage and establish themselves. Students can not only learn about python and its libraries but can also show case their passion or talent to make their career in data science field.
About the Event: The Workshop was inaugurated by S. Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chairman of Chandigarh Group of Colleges and S. Rashpal Singh Dhaliwal, President, Chandigarh Group of Colleges and Dr.VikasDhawan, Director Principal, CGC College of Engineering. The program started with a welcome speech given by Dr.VikasDhawan.
