Our current student in Big Data Super Specialisation- Gobalakrishnan- tells us how UpX Academy has given him the confidence to kick-start his career in Big Data.
Gobalakrishnan is working at one of the top 5 leading IT industry at Hyderabad as an Assistant Software Engineer. He has done a B.E. in Electronics and Communication.
How many years of experience do you have?
I’m a fresher. I have recently passed out of college and have just entered the corporate world.
As a newbie to the industry, how did you get to know about Big Data & Data Science? What pushed you to learn these technologies?
I saw UpX’s advertisement, which made me curious to know what Big Data & Data Science actually are. On researching and reading more on this, I found that these are the areas where the future of technology is. So, I was actually quite interested to learn more!
How has your experience been with UpX so far? How are you finding the course?
Actually, the course is going quite well. A student cannot learn everything in a span of 12 weeks. But you guys show us the way how we can do it. You do it very well. You guys thoroughly introduce the topic and guide us very well on how to go about practicing these topics for a deeper understanding. The pre-reads, e-books and assignments that you guys provide are actually quite helpful in getting into the details. The case studies and projects are an excellent way of implementing whatever we have studied in class. We ourselves need to spend time beyond the class hours, study the materials that you provide and practice every topic that is taught, then only would the whole picture be clear to us.
Why did you choose UpX Academy?
I’m very new to the industry. It has been just a year since I’ve started working on a project with my company. Realizing the importance of big data, my company was also encouraging us to take this course with you. As the courses were reasonably priced and not wanting to take a risk by investing elsewhere, I thought of starting with you.
The curriculum that you have, is a very detailed one which I felt was missing in case of other institutions. I had also heard good reviews about you from my colleagues. They had recommended me to enroll in your course saying that you provide a detailed curriculum and good faculty.
So this is how I joined UpX and I think I’m going good now!
What are your plans after you finish the course?
I want to keep practising to be the best and make a career switch to a role in Big Data. UpX Academy has given me the confidence that a fresher like me needed to make a career in Big Data!
