Today, Data Scientists play an integral role in helping companies both big and small predict industry trends, launch new products, and innovate based on consumer needs. Data Science is all about extracting insights from data to drive decision making, and is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing and in-demand disciplines in technology today. It requires statistical analysis and programming fundamentals, two core skills that allow Data Scientists to make predictive decisions derived from large data sets. If you think of any major data-driven tech company – Amazon, Netflix, Google – the work of Data Scientists is crucial to their customer experience and success.
This course introduces students to statistical analysis using Python and gradually builds into learning and applying programmed models that can derive insights from common data sets such as CSV’s and Databases. By the end of this course students will understand how to import CSV’s of data into a Python environment and perform analysis. Additionally, students will learn more about the online Data Science communities and how people share and study data collaboratively.
We recommend students have the following knowledge going into the course:
- Introductory programming experience, Python preferred
- Introductory statistics
- Completion of BrainStation’s Data Analytics course is highly recommended

I'm so glad I had the opportunity to take and complete Product Management course at Brain Station's downtown, Vancouver campus. The amount of knowledge I have gained from the materials and experiences shared in this course are extremely valuable and satisfying. The course syllabus is designed to cover the most important topics that forms the core concepts of product management field. I would like to specially acknowledge the experiences shared by our two instructors Marko Krsmanovic and Arya Baybordi during their lectures, both are successful professionals from the industry and have made major contributions in the development of new products with their employers. I also would like to commend both instructors' supervision of our final project, their guidance, comments, and recommendations helped us present a very clear product idea that's now in consideration by a tech company in Vancouver to invest in it.

Hey, folks! I've spent some time in lecture halls, trying not to doze off as some professor drones on and on. But this class was completely hands-on, focused on small groups, and offered THREE instructors who were super knowledgeable and always happy to answer our questions. Collaboration was key and BrainStation has designed it into every aspect of the expereince. It was like we were all in it together, working toward a common goal. The PM curriculum is one of the original at BrainStation and has gone through what must have been a hundred iterations. But the best part? Instead of dreading class like I usually do, I was excited to go every week. Thanks, BrainStation, for making learning fun again!
