How to Become a Data Scientist (with no Programming Experience)
From the foundations to final projects, our Applied Data Science cohorts build up practical experience working on a variety of datasets and graduate with an end-to-end data science project on their portfolio.The final projects are the culmination of everything students have learned since the start of the programme, and a chance to work with a company to tackle real-world data engineering and machine learning problems.
We’re proud to be working with a diverse range of companies in finance, trading, law, bioengineering, agri-tech, real estate and healthcare, to ensure students are exposed to the career opportunities available in different sectors.
Our project partners range from fast growing start-ups and VC funded, series B companies, though to well established organisations with 800+ employees. Project partners include:
Final projects are classified into core categories, so students focus on a key area of interest and apply techniques that are applicable in their professional work. Here’s a taste of some of the final projects our students work on:
Explore which features make the most importance in producing good financial models using cutting edge feature selection, big data processing and analysis techniques.
Develop a model that can identify and rank common topics across multiple jurisdictions for both microfinance and e-money regulations.
Get the chance to work on “data science at scale” and extract prototypes of fraudulent transactions from terabytes of data.
Train a classifier to automatically sort photographs into labels, in order to automatically infer details about a property and sort photos into collections.
