I feel pleased to introduce our new Educator Ambassador for 2024, Sumitra Pundlik from Marathwada Mitra Mandal College of Engineering, in the western Indian city of Pune.  Sumitra has been an Educator since the last 15 years and is currently working as an Assistant Professor at Marathwada Mitra Mandal College of Engineering.

Sumitra teaches various subjects related to Data Analytics such as DBMS, Advanced DBMS, Machine Learning, Big Data Analytics. She has also taught R and Python Programming including different Business Intelligence and Data Analytics technologies including Qlik Sense. 

Sumitra has been a member of the Qlik Academic Program since the last three years and has also successfully earned the Qlik Sense Business Analyst Qualification.  After earning this qualification, she supported the learning journey of more than 400 students of different academic institutes like NMIMS,Hyderabad, VJIT Hyderabad,MIT ADT University and encouraged them to pursue Qlik Sense Business Analyst Qualifications.

According to her, “The Qlik Academic Program provides a great opportunity for students to access many online resources and different qualifications and certifications including Data Literacy, Qlik Sense Business Analyst and Qlik Sense Data Architect. The interactive material of the academic program helps students to excel in the field of data analytics”.

Further she adds, “I have been spreading awareness about the Qlik Academic Program and its benefits to other engineering colleges by conducting expert sessions via social media platforms”

Sumitra says, “Moving ahead, we are keen for internship and job opportunities for our students who have a good understanding of Qlik Sense and have earned the academic program qualifications.”

In Sumitra’s words, “Data literacy is my interest and I want to educate every data science enthusiast about the importance of data literacy.”

She feels it’s her mission to create more awareness about data analytics and encourage use of Qlik Sense. Data is the new fuel, and it is driving the current industry, she further adds.

When Sumitra is not teaching, she likes spending time with her son, Viraj. She is focusing on upskilling herself in recent trends, also taking care of her health and following a workout routine. 

We are looking forward to working closely with Sumitra during her tenure as an ambassador and creating more links with Universities in Pune and rest of India.
