10 million+ companies have a problem Machine Learning can solve

That subject line? That’s a quote in The Economist by Jeff Dean, the director of Google Brain—Google’s AI department. He’s talking about a broad spectrum of organizations across a wide range of industries facing a similar problem: they have collected a quintillion bytes of critical data, but have no idea how to leverage it. They just don’t have the experts on staff.

DS102 will introduce students to the three broad topics in data science and analytics: data management, data visualization and machine learning techniques so that they can perform advance data analysis in companies.

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 is the fastest-growing job and was voted as the #1 job of 2018


    Data Scientists earn an estimated mid-career salary of $104,000 annually


    Demand for Big Data jobs are expected to increase exponentially in the future

Our students do the real thing

At Hackwagon, we’re exceptional at bringing students from beginners to pros. Expect to graduate with the ability to perform deep and insightful analysis after finishing both DS101 and DS102. Below are some student projects done in DS102, which is our second course after DS101

Sentiment Analysis and Naive Bayes Classification on e-commerce reviews

One of the challenges that businesses face is how to gain a better understanding of the voice of the customer. This issue can be addressed by extracting additional information from customer reviews, using sentiment analysis.

Identifying Healthcare Sustainability through Doctor/Bed-Patient Analysis

In this project, we analyse the number of doctors and hospital beds against the number of admitted patients between 2006 to 2015 to see if the Healthcare sector is sufficiently equipped to support the number of admitted patients.

Observing the relationship between Singapore’s Reserve and CPF balance

This project aims to visualise both Singapore’s Total Foreign Reserves and CPF balance from 1972 – 2015 with the objective to determine if Foreign Reserves growth can be explained by growth in CPF balance.

An exceptionally unique experience tailored to you.

Awesome Student Welfare

Great wholesome food provided during each lesson so that students are in the best state of mind to learn.

Highly Interactive Course

Learn in a class where we integrate engaging class participation activities such as games to facilitate learning.

Industry Relevant Projects

Learn how to create insights from real data through the YouTube, Lazada and Airbnb projects within the course.



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


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


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.
