WHAT IS DS102?

Data science and analytics are the current hot topics in both academia and industry. This course aims to introduce data science and analytics to students with no relevant background. Through this course, students will learn the types of problems that can be solved by data science and analytics.

The students will also be introduced to the three broad topics in data science and analytics: data management, data visualization and machine learning techniques. Learning in this course will be very “hands-on” and classes are designed to allow students to practise the techniques and concepts discussed in the lectures.

DS102 is the 2nd series of our data science track and is not meant for beginners to python programming. Beginners to Python can join our DS101 course instead.

DATA SCIENCE TRACK

DATA SCIENCE 101

Build your foundations in the tools-of-the-trade (python) over 7 weeks.

DATA SCIENCE 102

Learn to perform data exploration, visualisation, and machine learning using advanced python libraries.

DATA SCIENCE 103

Learn to build an enterprise level end-to-end data analytics model with a data pipeline.


The Data Science 101 (DS101) course is built for beginners with no background in programming. Finishing DS101 prepares students for the Data Science 102 (DS102) course, where they learn about data analytics toolsets in Python. DS102 can also be taken by software engineers who are already well versed in Python. In our master class, Data Science 103, students will graduate with data know-how in an organisation setting and be certified as a data analyst by our academy.

Build your foundation

Learn Python and Data Science and equip yourself with industry relevant skills and 21st century capabilities that are future-proof.

The atmosphere was also very conducive with meals and drinks being offered. Their follow-up service is also impeccable as they continue to update previous classes regarding new happenings in the data science field. Overall, it was a blast and I'm glad to have signed up for it!

Wenyu See

The environment was really conducive for learning: spacious, with all the necessary amenities. Besides that, the instructor was very passionate, and was well-prepared for class with in-class worksheets to guide. During the lesson there were also teaching assistants who went around the room to provide guidance when help was needed. The TAs contactable via telegram chat should you require any assistance with your homework.
