Building on student success in Web Development Bootcamp, Thinkful is launching its new Data Science Bootcamp. The course is fully online and flexible — students can learn from wherever they are, at whichever times of day work best for them.
The course dives deep into Python and its mathematical toolset, statistical analysis, and big data techniques including machine learning. By the time a student graduates, they will have the full skillset of a professional data scientist.
Data science means different things to different people. For a marketer, it might entail using scripts and statistics to determine how customers buy a product. For an epidemiologist, it might mean using visualization libraries to trace the outbreak of a disease back to its source. For everyone, however, data science is a robust set of skills that allows you to crunch massive amounts of information and draw out useful, intelligent conclusions.
To help you learn that skillset, Thinkful’s Data Science Bootcamp offers unprecedented student support. Every student works 1-on-1 with an expert mentor, who is a professional data scientist, and meets with them three times a week for one-hour sessions. Working 1-on-1 was shown as early as 1984 to be significantly more effective than learning in a classroom — landmark education studies have shown that mentored students perform better than 98% of traditional classroom students.
Building on top of the strong foundation of 1-on-1 mentor-ship, Thinkful offers around-the-clock expert support. With over 40 hours of mentor-hosted Q&A sessions and workshops each week, students can drop in and ask an industry expert rather than waiting for a classroom to open to get answers.
Thinkful’s deeply personalized approach allows students to customize the course to their needs. For example, if a student is an expert in statistics, they can skip that section of the curriculum and instead work with they mentor to focus fully on other topics, such as Python and machine learning. Since Data Science Bootcamp works on monthly payments, students are not locked in for 6 months — finishing early means paying less.
As a recipient of SwitchUp’s Best Bootcamp Award, Thinkful has a proven track record. The Data Science course builds on that track record: it was written in collaboration between data scientists from Uber, the Max Planck Institute, and Thinkful. Further, with past successes such as Web Development Bootcamp program, students have strong evidence to expect similar success with Thinkful’s Flexible Data Science Bootcamp.
