In the past few years, it has become more critical to study subjects like artificial intelligence and data science.
According to online learning platforms, many companies even outside the IT sector prefer to hire candidates with a deep understanding of artificial intelligence.
Tech courses are becoming increasingly popular among students of all backgrounds.
As a result of the recent increase in demand, many universities have created courses related to AI and Data sciences for their academic curriculums.
