OdinGrad - Rajat Patil

Rajat Patil, a Bhopal resident, graduated in mechanical engineering in 2019. After acing the GATE exam, he chose to pursue a post-graduation in Nanotechnology. In his final year, Rajat came across Python when it optimised nanomaterials and nanoscale structures for specific applications.

Rajat was fascinated by the language and decided to explore its complexities further. He discovered that Python is extensively used in the field of data science, and he aspired to pursue a career in this area.


Rajat's Journey: From Uncertainty to Success

Now, Rajat was eager to secure a data science job. However, he felt uncertain as to where and how to start his journey, as he is from a non-CS educational background. Determined to gain comprehensive knowledge in this field, he decided to explore professional data science courses that could equip him with the necessary skills.

Rajat came across OdinSchool on YouTube and got inspired by its success stories. Its industry-vetted curriculum and the no-cost EMI factor for the course fees motivated him to join without a second thought. The training schedule was very flexible; whenever he had doubts, he could always discuss them face-to-face with the mentor/instructor. He quickly gained extensive knowledge and completed several projects, including the ability to detect a patient with Coronavirus. He soon attended the placements at OdinSchool and has successfully bagged the job of a data analyst at TekFriday (a dynamic and young company on an aggressive growth path with a goal to put a mark on the Alternative Financial Services domain).
