WHY TAKE THIS COURSE

The Data Science course is designed as your entryway into one of the most cutting-edge and progressive industries of the moment, as you will learn how to read and manipulate data, and how to get computers to ‘think’ by themselves.

The emergence of the digital economy has flooded companies with raw data which traditional tools are not equipped to process. This has led to Data Analysts becoming among the most sought-after and flexible professionals, able to find employment as Business Analysts, Financial Analysts, Marketing Analysts, Operations Analysts, Web Analysts, Product Analysts, and many more. More positions, from consultancy to machine-learning engineering, also become accessible with a solid qualification in Data Science. 

This course will equip you with both the concepts and the practical skills to land your first job in the most dynamic branch of tech.

Data scientists are kind of like the new Renaissance folks, because data science is inherently multidisciplinary.

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

You will learn how to read, organise and leverage the enormous amount of data generated by business interactions online. From the mathematical theory and the concepts underlying data science, to practical implementations allowing you and your company to predict a system’s behavior, this course covers a comprehensive and constantly updated range of technologies.

Expect to graduate with employable skills not just in interpreting and visualizing data, but in teaching computers to do that for you: the course includes a thorough induction in machine learning, an area of artificial intelligence which is one of the most rapidly-evolving fields of programming.

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

Along the course, the structure of the weeks will vary to adapt to the learning content of the moment but in general this is how a typical week looks like:
