Hi, my name is Ananya Singh, and I’m from Delhi. I joined the Bachelor of Data Science program at SP Jain School of Global Management in September 2022. I chose this program because it combines two of my favorite subjects, mathematics and computer science. SP Jain’s program provides a well-rounded approach to data science that prepares students for a successful career in the industry. During my first year, I was able to secure an internship with UPilot Inc. from September 2022 to November 2022 as a software engineer intern. My team was tasked with creating a reporting tool that could pull data from their data warehouse. I worked mostly with the data warehousing team, where we sorted, cleaned, and joined data, and implemented them using MariaDB. This opportunity was made available through SP Jain’s placement cell, which has an extensive network and connections.
Throughout my internship, I had weekly meetings with the client and internal meetings three times a week to assign tasks, troubleshoot, and discuss upcoming tasks. My professors at SP Jain were a significant source of guidance and support, and their knowledge helped me complete the internship. Prof. Sunil Lakdawala, in particular, showed us how to create the ERD models and data warehouse models that I ended up using during my internship. As a project manager, I had to plan meetings, note down the minutes, and create a bridge between the UI team, BI team, and the company. I also worked with students from other universities, which provided me with a broader perspective.
The internship was a great learning experience, and it gave me a peek into what the corporate world looks like. I found myself particularly drawn to the data warehousing sector and can see myself pursuing it as a future career path. SP Jain’s courses and subjects are designed to help students prepare for the industry, and my knowledge gained in Year 1 was a significant asset during the internship. I’m grateful for this opportunity, and it’s helped me gain valuable experience that will be beneficial in my future endeavors.
