Hear from our students

Miriyala Pranay Kamal

NLP Scholar: B.Tech - IIT Dharwad

The course content was great. Being a 2nd year undergraduate student, I found it a little difficult to understand a few concepts as this was a master’s level course

Utkarsh Raj

NLP Scholar: MS - IIT Roorke

I had a wonderful learning experience at Univ.AI. The lecture content along with the labs, assignments, homeworks and the way they were delivered made the whole online learning experience better.

Bitan Biswas

NLP Scholar: Research Assistant at Cardiff University

I had a great experience studying at Univ. ai, amongst wonderfully talented people, from Professors, who aren't just extraordinarily knowledgeable but also, super helpful. The experience was enriching and I would love to keep being a part of it!

Anshul Bhardwaj

NLP Fellow: Data Scientist - Heystack

I enjoyed taking course and learnt a lot from it. The way the entire course content is organised and importance that is given to active hands-on learning make this course standout from the others.

Rachit Jain

NLP Scholar: Master of Business Analytics at MIT Sloan

One word I’d use to describe my experience at Univ.AI is ‘surprising’. This NLP fellowship at Univ.AI gave me a smoot route to learn from premier faculty and connect with like minded peers.As I am about to graduate, I feel strong and confident about my skills, all thanks to Univ.AI

Ashish Kumar Singh

NLP Fellow: AI/ML Solution Architect - ABInBev

I had a very enriching experience at Univ.AI. The way all the different concepts were covered, simple-to-complex, the homeworks, exercises, and assignments all together made the entire learning experience better and different from what you would usually find online.

Sahil Sharma

GANs & RL Fellow: Autonomous Driving Safety Engineer - Mercedes-Benz R&D India

It was a roller coaster ride for me. But thank god Univ.AI gave us excellent instructors and TAs to ride us with the topic intricacies. I learnt a lot in that month of a time. And would recommend this program.
