Top Summer Courses in Data Science

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.

Overview

The EIT Digital Industry action line addresses the seamless integration of customer and retailer needs with the delivering of products through manufacturing and logistics. Digital manufacturing, referred to as Industry 4.0, uses intelligent sensors and control systems to allow real-time optimization of manufacturing and supply chain networks.

The summer school will provide an effective multidisciplinary learning environment through Open Innovation Lab concept already in place in the area of Bologna, by putting together students, university, and companies in a unique community toward the advancement of the whole Industry 4.0 ecosystem via collaborative interaction between all main actors. Moreover, informal meetings with the entrepreneurial local community will be arranged to foster exchange and generate new business ideas. Traditional classes will be integrated with other less formal teaching activities, more active and participated, by merging different ways of involving students, which will also address training soft skills: i) user-centric service design; ii) business plan and lean approach; iii) pitch preparation and attention to details; iv) creativity in innovation....
