How Does Mentorship Work?

01Personalised mentorship: The most effective way to learning online

Participants learn in small groups of 5 & every group is assigned a Machine Learning mentor. Every participant gets access to personalised mentorship by engaging through weekend online sessions with one of our 100+ distinguished Machine Learning and Data Science mentors.

02The best of industry and academia

Participants learn from digital content created by some of India’s top rated Machine Learning faculty. On weekends, participants are led by their mentors as they work on data sets, projects and problem walk-throughs in Machine Learning & Data Science.

03Career coaching helps you connect the dots

Mentors inspire and guide participants at each step of their learning. Our mentors go beyond concept walkthroughs, doubt clearing and projects to help participants achieve their learning goals and also support them in their career transition in Machine Learning & Data Science.

The Great Learning Experience

MLCP is a one-of-its-kind innovative online program that provides a structured learning framework to participants for effective learning and application of Machine Learning & Data Science concepts.

Personalized Learning

You learn from industry experts not only through content but also through mentor-driven personalized learning sessions. Each module has recorded content that is followed by a session with an industry mentor who helps students master Machine Learning & Data Science tools and techniques and clears any doubts in a small group of 5 participants.

Experiential Learning Projects

An experiential learning project at the end of every module helps candidates internalize their understanding of the content consumed. Our coursework and practical assignments are designed to enable candidates to apply what they have learned during self-study and industry sessions.

Industry Exposure

Each week, participants get access to industry videos and webinars other than personalized learning sessions. Delivered by industry leaders, these resources are business-relevant, provide insights on current industry knowledge and solving real-life business problems.

Great Lakes Advantage

World-class award-winning faculty from Great Lakes ensure that the candidates learn through an exhaustive curriculum with hands-on experience. All participants upon successful competion are awarded a certificate by Great Lakes.

Distinguished Mentors

Candidates learn from 100+ distinguished Machine Learning experts who mentor them throughout the course of the program. Our Machine Learning mentors are thought-leaders in different domains with several years of industry experience and impart practical knowledge and industry insights in participants’ learning jouney.

Career Enhancement Sessions

The Program includes career development sessions which help participants identify their strengths, a customised career path and empowers them to clear interviews. Interacting with industry practitioners also helps participants gain exposure and experience in transitioning their careers.

Experiential Projects

Here are some of the projects that participants would be doing in the Machine Learning Certificate Program.

Building a machine learning model to gather sentiment Score from reviews on Amazon

This project involves building a machine learning model that can predict the sentiment score from the text available in Reviews dataset from Amazon website. Extract suitable features from the unstructured text and apply the machine learning model to get the sentiment score to understand people’s sentiments, attitudes or emotions towards certain Amazon products.


Feature Selection or Extraction, Sentiment Analysis, Text Analytics

Artist discovery and Personalised music recommendation using data set

Using music dataset, participants learn to apply user based collaborative filtering and other Recommendation algorithms to identify less-known Artist and new artists, enabling user to explore new songs music based on their taste. Also, participants get to build a prediction model to predict whether a user will listen to an artist’s songs and frequency of listening for a particular song.


Exploration Data Analytics, Recommendation algorithms, User profiling, Prediction

Dimensionality Reduction through Principal Component Analysis

This project involves step by step approach to implement Principal Component Analysis (PCA) using Python. A wine dataset with 13 attributes are used to achieve a new feature-set with lower number of dimensions that can be used for further analysis.


Unsupervised Learning, Principal component analysis, dimension reduction techniques

Creating a model to identify prospective customers for loans

The project involves identification of potential customers for the personal loan product of a bank. Ensemble modeling techniques are leveraged to predict the propensity of a prospect to purchase the loan. This enables the bank to devise targeted marketing campaigns to increase the conversion rate with minimal budget.


Supervised Learning, Ensemble Techniques, Model Selection

Sentiment Analysis on Twitter

This project enables participants apply sentiment analysis to understand user opinions and identify trends on different topics using data from Twitter.


Sentiment Analysis

Tools and Techniques

Python (Pandas, Numpy, Scipy, Matplotlib, Seaborn, Scikit-Learn)
