DATA SCIENCE BOOTCAMP

The immersive education you want, the flexibility you need, and a rewarding career as a data scientist is just a click away.

WHAT DO DATA SCIENTISTS DO?

The world of data science includes a whole range of specializations. Here are a few of them.

DATA

SCIENTIST

Data scientists combine computer science, mathematics, statistics, modelling and a solid understanding of their industry to discover new strategies. They clean and sort data and create algorithms that analyze trends. They then present their findings to companies to help them improve their practices and systems.

DATA

ENGINEER

Data engineers work in a variety of fields to build systems that collect, manage, and convert unsorted data into usable information for data scientists and analysts to interpret. Their end goal is to make data accessible so that organizations can use it to evaluate and optimize their performance.

MACHINE LEARNING ENGINEER

Machine learning engineers research, build, and design artificial intelligence (AI) responsible for machine learning along with maintaining and improving existing artificial intelligence systems. They also act as the go-between for data scientists who develop AI construction models and those who build and run them.
