Data Science Bootcamp
offered by Nashville Software School
The Data Science Bootcamp is an intensive, part-time evening program designed to prepare highly motivated adult learners with prior academic or professional experience in statistics, quantitative research, and/or software engineering for a job as a Data Scientist, Data Analyst, Data Engineer or related position.
Data Science lies at the intersection of statistics/quantitative analysis, business acumen/domain expertise, and programming/“hacking” skills. The bootcamp focuses on hands-on training in software engineering skills required to do data science as well as applying the necessary stats/math/analytical skills against real-world problems drawn from a wide range of problem domains.
We believe that the Nashville area has an untapped supply of latent talent for data analytical work. But, that talent needs access to accelerated, focused, real-world training. We’ve designed the Data Science Bootcamp to help address this need.
– Part-time evening program that will meet two evenings a week and on Saturdays for a total of nine months.
