Short Courses in Data Science

Data science is the study of extracting meaningful insights from data. It is a forward-looking approach with the focus on analysing the past or current data and predicting the future outcomes with the aim of making informed decisions. Regardless of industry or size, organizations that wish to remain competitive in the age of big data need to efficiently develop and implement data science capabilities.

The Short Courses in Data Science have four levels:

  • Short Course in Data Science : An Introduction
  • Short Course in Data Science : Intermediate
  • Short Course in Data Science : Advanced
  • Short Course in Data Science : Expert
  • Statistics
  • Coding
  • Modelling
  • Data Visualisation

The Short Courses in Data Science has four levels with each covering topics in Statistics, Coding, Modelling and Data Visualization verticals.Entry requirements:

  • Short Couse in Data Science: An Introduction 
  • Individuals who are just embarking on the data science journey either as a “STEM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fresh graduate or those looking to upskill into data science. Knowledge of either computer science, programming or strong mathematics background is essential.

 

  • Short Couse in Data Science: Intermediate
  • The intermediate course is designed to provide individuals who have 2-3 years experience working in a data analytics or analysis discipline such as finance, business planning, marketing or sales who are looking to develop an understanding of data science. Basic practical knowledge of computer science, programming or strong mathematics background is a must. The individual must have attended and passed the Beginner Data Science course or other associated data science course.

 

  • Short Couse in Data Science: Advance 
  • Analytics practitioners who have more than 3 years of experience operating in a data analytics or analysis team looking to increase their knowledge in data science. They must have attended and passed the Intermediate Data Science course or other associated data science course.

 

  • Short Couse in Data Science: Expert 
  • Data Science team leaders looking to step into senior management role. Must have attended the Short Course in Data Science: Advanced
    or other associated data science course.
