About the Program
About The Certified Data Scientist Program
The data scientist role is an offshoot of the statistician role that includes the use of advanced analytics technologies, including machine learning and predictive modeling, to provide insights beyond statistical analysis. The demand for data science skills has grown significantly in recent years as companies look to glean useful information from the voluminous amounts of structured, unstructured and semi-structured data that a large enterprise produces and collects — collectively referred to as big data.
A data scientist uses large amounts of data to develop hypotheses, make inferences and hone in on customer, business and market trends. The data scientist must be able to communicate how to use analytics data to drive business decisions that may include changing course, improving a process or product, or creating new services or products.
This is a complete course that provides you detailed understanding of data science, encompasses basic statistical concepts to advanced analytics and predictive modeling techniques, along with project life cycle, data acquisition, analysis, statistical methods and machine learning.
The objective of the course is to learning statistical analysis techniques and tools to solve business problems that help you to emerge as ‘Industry Ready’ professional in the field of Data Science.
You will be learning the Data Science skills with the most popular and leading analytical tools widely used across industries such as R & Python.
Upon completion of Data Science course, you now have acquired valuable skills to
- Master key facets of data investigation, including data wrangling, cleaning, sampling, management, exploratory analysis, regression and classification, prediction, and data communication.
- Implement foundational concepts of data computation, such as data structure, algorithms, parallel computing, simulation, and analysis.
- Leverage your knowledge of key subject areas, such as statistical quality control, exponential smoothing, seasonally adjusted trend analysis, or data visualization.
