Data Insight is accepting new applications for her fully funded Data Scientist Program. From September 2021, the next cohort will commence their training towards being the next generation of Data Scientists. The vision of this program is to adequately educate and develop intelligent yet economically marginalized young people around the world who have defied all odds and have shown a great deal of resilience and academic excellence.
A Data Scientist employs programming, statistical and machine learning techniques to gain insight from data. Data Insight's Data Scientist Program is a comprehensive online data science training that covers all that you need to begin your journey towards becoming a Data Scientist. Over a period of 1 year, you will develop the technical skills to program in Python and learn how to use this powerful tool to collect, analyze and interpret complex data and to build predictive machine learning models.
Courses in the Data Scientist Program are developed by data science experts in industry and academia. They will help you to develop both programming and data science skills.
