For students that want to make the most of their four years’ worth of college or expand their education after graduation, summer courses offer that opportunity. A course takes at most two months and can have more flexibility for the student’s progress, especially with distance learning options.

What is a summer course in data science? Data science resides at the intersection between statistics and computer science, dealing with collecting and analyzing large amounts of data. Students can learn about hardware and software employed to generate such data, how to interpolate trends and emergent behavior from large sample sizes, and how to graph and visualize the data to convey and support their inferences. Distinguishing data science from statistics is often an emphasis of the program, along with focusing on technology, especially the use of the Internet as an information channel.

Students that take a summer course in data science can develop skills in statistical analysis and computer science. More broadly applicable abilities they might build on, though, include communication, group work, acting as a liaison, and insight into other people.

Tuition for summer courses is relatively inexpensive compared to traditional college courses taking place in the fall or winter semesters. Exact pricing varies, though, and depends mainly on the individual schools and on the course hours the program requires.

Data science as a field has grown immensely in recent years, so students pursuing an education in data science can expect to enter an expansive job industry. Many companies employ data scientists as market researchers, database managers, or risk management consultants. Data scientists are also involved in work centered on predictive or pattern detection algorithms, which can put them in positions involving cyber security.

A summer course can be a powerful first step into a new branch of one’s education. If you want to learn more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

This 6-day course will familiarize participants with Machine Learning and Data Mining algorithms using the Python programming language. You will learn to recognize the correct machine learning approach for a given problem; furthermore, participants will learn how to implement several different algorithms. Finally, towards the end of the course, we will introduce more advanced machine learning topics and methodologies for combining several approaches to solve specialized problems. The lab classes will use the Python programming language and public data sets. The solutions to the exercises can easily be transferred to other programming languages such as R or Octave. -
