Why learn Programming & Data Science ?
Data driven decision making involves the analysis of large volumes of data to identify patterns and build predictive models. This requires a combination of skills ranging from computing, statistics and mathematics, and is broadly labelled data science. Online teaching has the potential to train much larger numbers, but delivering scale without diluting quality has proven to be a challenge until recently.
This program therefore aims to create a thoroughly trained programmer, proficient in application development, data sciences and machine learning.
