Course Objectives

This course aims to develop full stack capability with emphasis on employability in Data Science. The bootcamp seeks to develop highly employable data science skills that is much sought after by the industry. Participants will be trained in 2 areas of specialisation:​


Dat​a Visualisation

A fun, hands-on, and project-based specialization that help students gain full proficiency in data visualization systems and tools. Students will be taught on creating compelling narratives by combining charting elements with custom aesthetics.

The course’s capstone project requires the students to build real-world applications under stringent criteria modelled after real business scenarios.



Machine Learning

A careful combination of statistical theory, hands-on coding and programming exercises to help students understand and implement some of the most widely used and fundamental, machine learning algorithms. By building regressors and classifier algorithms from scratch, the students will go beyond applying machine learning models to actually developing their own models — and learn the right approach to fine-tuning the model performance as well as evaluating model fit against unseen data. Upon completion of the workshop, the students will be well versed in an array of important, versatile machine learning algorithms and equipped with the right knowledge to apply them to future datasets in their daily job.


Trainer Profiles
