What you will learn.

You’ll master the basic skills needed to become a successful Data Scientist. You’ll work on projects and assignments designed by industry experts, and learn to run data pipelines, design experiments, build recommendation systems, and deploy solutions.

Coding in Python

The industry gold standard for writing computer programs to perform tasks, automate processes and solve problems efficiently.

The Data Science Pipeline

Learn to take a structured approach to solving data problems, and understand the stages of data acquisition, preparation, exploration, modeling, validation, deployment and monitoring.

Data Visualization

The process of transforming complex data into a visual representation, such as charts or graphs, to enhance understanding, communication, and decision making.

Supervised Machine Learning

Build algorithms that are trained using labeled data, with a specific target or output variable, to categorize new, unseen data based on past observations.

Unsupervised Machine Learning

Involves training algorithms on data without explicit labels to identify patterns and relationships in the data and insights.

Advanced Data Science Principles

Once you’re able to use the tools of data science, explore more complex methods of data analysis, including neural networks, time series models, support vector machines and more.

Prerequisite knowledge.

This course requires prior knowledge in programming, statistics, and mathematics.

Familiarity with linear algebra, calculus, and probability is important for understanding the algorithms used in AI and for developing models in data science.

If you have not covered statistics or foundational computer science for at least a year at university level, speak to your iX Career Advisor for additional resources to get you up to speed.
