Princy Pappachan joined the Applied MSc in Data Science & AI programme in Autumn 2019. Before DSTI, Princy worked as an Integration Engineer Consultant. She used to build interfaces for leading multinational and Indian Corporate banks for processing guarantees and payments. She has expertise in design, development, support and infrastructure setup of integration platforms.
Why did you choose the Applied MSc in Data Science & AI at DSTI?
There are two major reasons.
I always believed that the quality of an institute is measured by the review of the students and alumni. So, I contacted few alumni of DSTI and they had only praise and most of them were actually grateful to the school for their change of career.
I love the programme’s content. Apart from being good at what you do on a day-to-day basis, you need to have at least basic knowledge of all the domains which keep your application live. It is a critical point which most people overlook. I liked the fact that DSTI expands the boundaries by teaching us AWS and does not limit us to just coding.
What was your DSTI study experience like during these 6 months?
I personally loved my experience! From the faculty, administrators, alumni to my classmates, I adore every single person I have come across at DSTI. They made my study experience in DSTI beautiful! What I loved most of the staff, is that they really care for every individual like a family. Every time I had any issue, they always stood by me and I will always be grateful to them.

My internship at Faurecia is a global leader in the fields of international automotive parts manufacturing, and uses computer vision to improve the quality of their products.
Any tips for future students?
In the next 6 months of your life, you will be blasted with a lot of information. I assure you that you will be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of new information you have to process in a very limited time. Trust me, all of us have felt the same way and we have all surpassed it. So, relax, take a breath, and just remember everyone is here to help you and wants you to excel.
Also, one of the most amazing things I love about DSTI is that every single individual is keen on helping you. All you must do is reach out with kindness. Your teachers appreciate when you ask questions. Just ask! The alumni association gives you a true insight of working as a Data Scientist from ground zero to the position they have reached right now and are always happy to share their experience with you. Feel free to reach out to them. Moreover, your classmates are some of the most brilliant minds you will come across. Make the most of it! Those 6 months of class will be the most exhaustive as well as one of the most amazing time. Cherish it!
