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 recently completed the 10 week part time web development program. I found the online live course to be a really great option that allowed for the convenience of taking the class from anywhere, but also provided the structure that I needed with a designated required class time each week.
As a designer who frequently interacts with our development team, I took this course to better understand the dev process. I was happy with the knowledge I gained by the end of the 10 weeks. The instructor dove into both css and html, and provided us with the information needed to create a basic one page website as a final project. Our instructor was super helpful and patient with all questions; he never made anyone feel like any question was dumb or a waste of time. I would not go into this course expecting to be a professional developer upon completion; there just isn’t enough time in 30 hours to learn everything you need to know, and that’s not really the intention of the part time course. However, I think this course is great way to get a good base of html and css, and start you off on the right foot in the coding world.

I completed the class through their online-live method and it was an amazing experience. Both instructors were very knowledgeable and eager to answer any questions we had. The staff at BrainStation were also very approachable and quick to respond to any message I sent them. The class really opened my eyes to a lot of Product Management methods I wasn't really thinking about. The instructors' real world examples helped to clearly explain any concepts. I definitely walked away with a brand new set of skills that I am excited to use.
