Curriculum

Industry-approved curriculum to support your journey into data science

Essentials 1: 3 weeks

Introduction to Python

Objectives 

  • Apply the basics of programming language methodologies to real world scenarios
  • Demonstrate foundational skills for scripting with a programming language, python

This introduction to python course is designed to equip you with essential skills applicable to data science. Throughout this course, you'll delve into fundamental programming concepts starting with scripting basics, understanding compiled vs. interpreted languages, and creating algorithms for simple tasks. You'll explore operators, loops (while and for), and data structures like tuples, lists, dictionaries, and strings. Additionally, you'll learn about libraries and functions, enabling you to leverage Python's extensive ecosystem for complex tasks. This course culminates in a project where you are tasked with developing a Python script to analyze data in a file. By the end of the course, you will have developed your understanding to develop efficient code, and tackle real-world challenges in the technical domain of data science.

Essentials 2: 3 weeks 

Introduction to Data Science

Objectives 

  • Implement foundational statistical measurement with data using scripting
  • Demonstrate gathering insights from data with visualizations
  • Integrate object oriented programming (OOP) with Python for data cleaning and analysis

You will embark on an immersive journey into the world of data analysis and visualization using Python. Throughout this course, you'll learn essential statistical measures, explore different types of data, and master data analysis techniques using the pandas library. You'll delve into data visualization with Python libraries such as Seaborn and Matplotlib, gaining insights into qualitative, quantitative, and multivariate data. The course culminates in a project, wherein you will apply your knowledge to perform a full exploratory data analysis process, demonstrate proficiency in descriptive data analysis and visualization using pandas, and object-oriented programming principles in Python. By the end of this course, you'll emerge equipped with the skills to gather insights from data, perform advanced data analysis, and effectively communicate your findings through visualizations and descriptive statistics.

Essentials 3: 3 weeks

Introduction to SQL 

 

Objectives 

  • Utilize industry standard techniques to analyze data with, programming language (python), structured query language (SQL), and the cloud. 
  • Explore and manipulate data with mathematics, probability, and statistics
  • Analyze data for a business problem with visualizations with a dashboard

This course is designed to equip you with essential skills in structured query language (SQL), data engineering, database administration, and data analysis. Learn the essentials of mathematics, probability, and statistics for data science as well as learn how to perform more advanced data analysis and cleaning with Python. Throughout this course, you'll start by getting familiar with SQL, learning how to connect to databases, and perform basic queries. As you progress, you'll delve into more advanced topics such as filtering, ordering, and grouping data, as well as understanding table relations and implementing joins and subqueries. In the culminating project, you will demonstrate proficiency in SQL by applying queries on a database within a Python environment and reflecting on the database design and outputs. This project serves as a practical assessment of your ability to conceptually apply SQL knowledge and understanding of database concepts, preparing you for real-world data science challenges.

*This short program is a prerequisite to the full Data Science Foundations program. It will round out your data science skill set, build a professional portfolio, and prepare you to launch a career in data science.
