ICFOSS being its mandate to promote free software and hardware has initiated various training programmes and workshop for students. As part of this initiative, ICFOSS is planning to organize Online Certification Programmes for Students as well as Faculty in the stream of Sciences and Engineering, proposed to be held during the month of May 2020. The proposed Certification Programmes is an drive to improve the technical capabilities of upcoming engineers towards Free and Open Source Technology. Considering the current Covid pandemic, ICFOSS proposes to conduct Certification Programmes through online, instead of a traditional class room based trainings.


The Certification Programme shall mainly focus to enhance the skills in Machine Learning (ML) through free software among the participants and in turn, nurture the interest in free software tools. The Online Certification Programme will be a 7 day-long course which provides the participants with hands on experience on Machine Learning Techniques and Features. The programme also helps them to build creativity and problem-solving skills, in the field of Engineering Technology and Scientific Research. Under the guidance of experienced resource persons from ICFOSS, each student will get live online support throughout the course, to complete the tasks assigned to them. The level of progress of each participant will be analysed through simulation tests at the end of each session and a product presentation at the end of the program.

Course Highlights:

  • Online learning

  • Live Virtual Classroom

  • Projects

  • Custom Learning Path

  • Simulation Tests

  • Certification

The Machine Learning (ML) Certification Programme is designed to give the students with an in-depth knowledge of Machine Learning (ML) Framework in Linux platform. In this hands-on course, the participants will execute projects using integrated lab.

Key Training features:

  • 20 hours of Industry-Lead Training

  • Topics covered : Training on Linux basics, introduction to Free software, Machine Learning (Basics, Pre-processing and Feature engineering, Python Libraries, Regression, Linear models for classification, Artificial Neural Network, Network - Feed Forward, Clustering, SVM, Performance metrics, Recent advances in ML)

  • Online examination and project presentation



  • The number of participants for the proposed programme is limited to 30 per batch.

  • Students and Faculty in the field of Sciences and Engineering.

  • Application will be invited online. Registration link shall be published through ICFOSS website and social media pages.


Selection Criteria: The Selection will be through screening and scrutiny of application, though a Panel of Members, and shortlisted through criteria defined by the Committee of Internal Technical Heads (ITH), ICFOSS.


Certification Criteria: Certification will be issued to participants who qualifies with:

  • 50% marks in Online Examination

  • 25% marks in Assignments & Projects

  • 25% marks on Project Presentation.


Note: Each project will be evaluated by a Committee constituted by the ITH. Examination is time bound. Random questions will be generated from the question bank prepared by an expert panel and certified by ITH.
