Today, for those who want to develop in the field of big data analysis, there are many opportunities, and we are determined to help our students to join the community of Data Scientists.
There are many myths around the Data Scientist profession, many believe that, for example, mathematics is not that important and anyone who can type a formula in Python already considers himself a Data Scientist without having the slightest idea what is behind these processes. And as an outcome, they get irrelevant conclusions. At the same time, without paying attention to the fact that data analysis, machine learning technologies, and Big Data – all these technologies use basic mathematics as their basis.
Therefore, in our course, we pay special attention to mathematics, and we have also developed a special pre-course in mathematics for those who have not studied mathematics or studied it for so long that they don’t remember anything.
However, you need to understand that doing Data Science is as difficult as doing science in general. This profession involves the ability to build hypotheses, pose questions and find answers to them. The very word Scientist emphasizes that such a specialist should be a researcher, a person with an analytical mindset, able to draw informed conclusions from huge amounts of information in fairly concise lines. Scrupulous, attentive, accurate – most often he is both a programmer and a mathematician.
Thus, if you decide to devote yourself to the profession of Data Scientist, you should understand that it is impossible to master it in 2 weeks, or in a couple of hours a day, which is absolutely not enough to gain knowledge and be able to put it into practice.
In human life, time is the most important and expensive asset, so in our course, we tried to reflect the most important points in Data Science and pay special attention to practice, so as not to waste your time in vain. Hence, you have 375 working-class hours, during this period you have the opportunity to learn a new profession and apply all the acquired knowledge in practice in 15 weeks.

Python is data scientists’ preferred programming language. If machine learning researchers decide to open source their work they will most likely do it in python. Therefore, the course starts by introducing python concepts and packages that are useful for data analysis.
Machine learning is a technical science and like any technical subject, it uses mathematical language to formulate ideas. There is an increasing number of solutions that try to automate the whole machine learning process but if one does not understand mathematical formalism behind algorithms it is impossible to test and debug models which can lead to spurious insights.
In this course, students learn those concepts of linear algebra, probability theory, and statistics that are essential for exploratory data analysis, understanding and designing machine learning algorithms.
“More data beats better algorithms” – this quote by Peter Norvig emphasizes the great importance of data in machine learning. This part of the program describes data structures, relational and non-relational databases, means of interacting with databases, manipulating data and merging datasets from different sources.
This module starts with an introduction to machine learning: how it is organized, what are the sub branches of machine learning, fundamental differences between these approaches and types of problems they are designed to solve.
Next, students get familiar with framing a machine learning problem, picking up appropriate objective function and algorithm according to a given problem. It is well known that data wrangling and feature engineering takes most of the time of model development. Students learn techniques to effectively deal with missing values, outliers, categorical variables and design new features.
This course covers algorithms that are used when the target variable which has to be predicted is known. It starts with simple KNN and ends with fully connected feed-forward neural networks. Proper testing of a model is essential to build a reliable product. Students are introduced to various testing methods and parameters that help to build generalizable and stable models.
Most of the time values of the target variable are unknown and that is when unsupervised learning techniques are needed. They enable us to identify hidden structures in multidimensional datasets.
To test and assess students’ knowledge each of them picks a machine learning problem after completing all modules and tries to find a solution by going through the data preparation, model training and testing phases.
This module will introduce some advanced topics and instruments for data analysis that will boost and enhance your knowledge in Data Science.
