This program includes the following courses:

  • Python for Data Science Bootcamp
  • Python Machine Learning Bootcamp
  • SQL Bootcamp
  • Python for Automation

You'll work on data analysis projects, create machine learning models, learn to combine and pull information from databases from SQL, automate tasks with Python, and more in this certificate program.

About Data Science

Data science is the science of using data to make decisions or predictions. In data science classes, you'll learn how to analyze data to inform decisions and leverage machine learning to build predictive models.

Say for example you wanted to understand the daily movement patterns of a particular stock, you could use data science to analyze that data, find trends, and create a predictive model of how it will move in the future. Data science and machine learning are all the hype around the business world as more data is available and the need for data-driven decisions is growing. Data science can be used across a variety of industries and can help inform the way decisions are made in lots of contexts. While data analytics is critical, data science allows you to go one level deeper and use the data you have to make predictions. With machine learning, you'll use statistical analyses and other machine learning methods to predict trends. 

In this program, you'll learn the skills you need to become a data scientist and start a career in one of the most in-demand fields. This course starts from the ground-up and works its way all the way up to advanced machine learning and automation concepts. You'll walk away with a whole new set of skills and mastery of data.
