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.

Prerequisites

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

Brainstation continues to be an excellent experience!

I previously enrolled in the Data Analytics course in late 2018 and had a great time with the instructors (Lindsay & Ahmad). I followed it up with the Data Science course that I have just completed, to further my skills. This course was a pretty decent jump from the analytics one as it dives into programming and statistics a little. The course covers all the basics of python and goes as far as to touch on modeling via regression and other means. It does move very quickly and you do need to stay on top of it as it is easy to get lost. The instructors were very knowledgeable with real industry experience and applications. Brainstation and these two courses have given me the foundation to pivot my career into Data Science! Would definitely consider a full-time program in the future!

I was very impressed BrainStation’s part time Product Management course.

Andy Woo and Keith Dell were fantastic instructors -- they were always engaging with a vast knowledge of product management, and used real world examples from their workplace or otherwise to explain concepts. Given that the course was a limited amount of time, I felt that the instructors spent the right amount of time and the concepts that mattered.

Our outside of class work was manageable and a great way to solidify content learned in class. We presented projects to the entire class which was a valuable learning experience. As all the students came from a variety of workplaces, it was interesting to get feedback from classmates as well.

Would highly recommend this course and others at BrainStation to my friends and colleagues.
