WHY TAKE THIS COURSE

Learning how to use and interpret big data can significantly boost your career – but you don’t have to quit your job to learn.

Data Science is not only one of the most sought-after and progressive disciplines in tech, it is also among the most versatile. The skills it offers can be put to use in such fields as law, medicine, insurance, marketing, consultancy, human resources, and many more.

Holding classes only on evenings and on Saturdays, the Part-Time Data Science bootcamp will teach you the theory and especially the practice of gathering, analysing and manipulating data.

You’ll begin from the basics and gradually build up to advanced fields such as machine learning, which allows you to teach your computer how to solve problems by itself.

The curriculum is suited for those who wish to start a brand new career in tech, as well as for those who wish to upskill without changing their field. The schedule is designed expressly for students who already have a busy routine.

The goal is to turn data into information, and information into insight.

Requirements

What you will need

Many of the concepts you will learn will be new and unfamiliar to you. The material we’ll present you with will push you outside of your comfort zone. This is natural. Embrace it.

Before you can interpret data, you must gather it, process it, compare it. This is called quantitative work, and while it does not demand any special aptitude or preparation, it does require the willingness and the patience to work with numbers.

Our bootcamp is open to international students, and it is in English. You don’t have to be a native speaker, but you should know the language well enough to be able to follow a class, and communicate with your fellow students, without slowing everyone else down.

Our virtual platform, where you will meet your instructors and study alongside your peers, is online. To join us, you will need a computer or a laptop connected to the Internet, along with speakers/headphones and a microphone.

What you will not need

Data Science requires patience and hard work, yes. But it’s not something only the most brilliant minds of this world can do, and it’s fine if you haven’t done any mathematics since school.

You don’t need any qualifications related to computer science or programming. Our bootcamp assumes no prior knowledge and covers the basics of the field in the first few weeks.

You are here to learn together with others, not to outdo them. A collaborative, friendly attitude is essential, and your only benchmark for progress should be yourself.

What does the course teach

Your classes will last three hours on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, complemented with a full day of teaching on Saturday. You will learn about the theory and the mathematical foundations of Data Science, and from there progress to its practical and commercial applications. The bootcamp equips you with the precise skills necessary to interpret and exploit the data generated by business interactions online (or, to get your computer to do it for you!). A thorough induction in machine learning, a field of artificial intelligence, is also provided.

Teaching methods

A bootcamp is more than just an online course: it’s a full-immersion in an interactive learning environment in which you and other students will be as closely supported as you will be actively challenged.

 

Learn by doing

Work on concrete projects based on real-life problems. Expand your skills with each new project.

Interactive online seminars

Analyze and interpret data in live, instructor-led seminars alongside your fellow students.

Part of our world

Gain access to our virtual platform, and network with both pros and fellow students at any time of the day.

The Primer

Primer screen Quiz

Prior to the beginning of the bootcamp, we will give you access to our Primer. This is an introduction to the basic concepts you will be dealing with in your classes, and it is designed to be interactive and inclusive of exercises. The purpose of the Primer is to make sure that every student can begin the bootcamp with some core notions already in place, so that everyone can hit the ground running.

Concepts & Tools

In this bootcamp you will learn how to employ tools for visualizing and interpreting data scientifically. You will become handy with databases, cloud computing, SQL, and Python for Data Science. Later in the course you will be taught about machine learning, a data-based field of artificial intelligence.

Weekly schedule

During the course, the structure of the weeks will vary to adapt to the learning content of the moment, but in general this is what a typical week looks like. Please note that the course is also available in a full-time format if the following schedule is not suitable for you.
