Peaks Academy Launches First Online Data Science Bootcamp to Train Working Professionals

Peaks Academy is launching the first online, part-time data science bootcamp. We want to train data analysts, software engineers and other technical professionals to perform advanced data analysis and properly utilize machine learning algorithms.

Peaks Academy is launching a new online bootcamp for aspiring data scientists. The program will run for 24 weeks and take place 100% online through a virtual classroom experience.

Expert practitioners who are currently employed as data scientists will teach the core curriculum. The curriculum combines the traditional topics of data science with industry experience and guided projects.

The course will provide students with the skills to derive insight from data, as well as experience in the process of choosing the right analytical tools and data sources for the question, and communicating outcomes to maximize the transfer of insight to key stakeholders. The program is designed to train-by-doing, and will use the iterative data science design process to cover machine learning algorithms, SQL and NoSQL databases, Python programming language and packages, Bayesian modeling, visualization tools and techniques, and many other topics.

Successful applicants will be those who have a background in statistics and probability as well as programming. A few groups that will be well suited are: data analysts, software engineers, quantitative graduate degree holders, traditional engineers, and other technical professionals. No more than 20 applicants will be accepted into the bootcamp in order to maintain the quality of instruction and career support.
