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 took the 10-week Data Analytics course in-person in Vancouver, BC and had a great experience. My instructors, Raymond Kwok and Lauren Bates, were very approachable and provided helpful answers to questions. They also have a passion for data and have relevant industry experience, which was greatly beneficial.
I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking to learn or advance their Excel, SQL, and Tableau skills. The course also focuses on general data analytics frameworks and data visualization. There is a lot of useful content that is taught, which would be beneficial for anyone in an analyst role or looking to get into one.

My teacher and teacher's assistant had great industry input and classes were clear and concise. Because of that, I've decided to join the full-time Web Development Diploma.
