**What is Data Science?**

Data science is an amalgam of methods derived from statistics, Data Analysis, and Machine Learning that are trained to extract and analyze huge volumes of structured and unstructured data.

**Who is a Data Scientist?**

A Data Scientist is a researcher who has to prepare huge volumes of big data for analysis, build complex quantitative algorithms to organize and synthesize the information, and present the findings with compelling visualizations to senior management.

A Data Scientist enhances business decision making by introducing greater speed and better direction to the entire process.

A Data Scientist must be a person who loves playing with numbers and figures. A strong analytical mindset coupled with strong industrial knowledge is the skill set most desired in a data scientist. He must possess above the average communication skills and must be adept in communicating the technical concepts to non - technical people. Data Scientists need a strong foundation in Statistics, Mathematics, Linear Algebra, Computer Programming, Data Warehousing, Mining, and modeling to build winning algorithms.

They must be proficient in tools such as **Python, R, R Studio, Hadoop, MapReduce, Apache Spark, Apache Pig, Java, NoSQL database, Cloud Computing, Tableau, and SAS.**

## FAQs for Data Science Certification Training

After you have completed the classroom sessions, you will receive assignments through the online Learning Management System that you can access at your convenience. You will need to complete the assignments in order to obtain your data scientist certificate.

Different organisations use different terms for data professionals. You will sometimes find these terms being used interchangeably. Though there are no hard rules that distinguish one from another, you should get the role descriptions clarified before you join an organisation.

With growing demand, there is a scarcity of Data Science Professionals in the market. If you can demonstrate strong knowledge of Data Science concepts and algorithms, then there is a high chance for you to be able to make a career in this profession.

360DigiTMG provides internship opportunities through Innodatatics, our USA-based consulting partner, for deserving participants to help them gain real-life experience. This greatly helps students to bridge the gap between theory and practical.

While there are a number of roles pertaining to Data Professionals, most of the responsibilities overlap. However, the following are some basic job descriptions for each of these roles.

As a Data Analyst, you will be dealing with Data Cleansing, Exploratory Data Analysis and Data Visualisation

As a Data Scientist, you will be building algorithms to solve business problems using statistical tools such as Python, R, SAS, STATA, Matlab, Minitab, KNIME, Weka etc. A Data Scientist also performs predictive modelling to facilitate proactive decision-making.

A Data Engineer primarily does programming using Spark, Python, R etc. It often compliments the role of a Data Scientist.

A Data Architect has a much broader role that involves establishing the hardware and software infrastructure needed for an organisation to perform Data Analysis. They help in selecting the right database, servers, network architecture, GPUs, cores, memory, hard disk etc.

In this blended programme, you will be attending 184 hours of classroom sessions of 6 months. After completion, you will have access to the online Learning Management System for another three months for recorded videos and assignments. The total duration of assignments to be completed online is 150+ hour. Besides this, you will be working on 2 live projects for a month.

There are plenty of jobs available for data professionals. Once you complete the training, assignments and the live projects, we will send your resume to the organisations with whom we have formal agreements on job placements.

We also conduct webinars to help you with your resume and job interviews. We cover all aspects of post-training activities that are required to get a successful placement.

If you miss a class, we will arrange for a recording of the session. You can then access it through the online Learning Management System.

We assign mentors to each student in this programme. Additionally, during the mentorship session, if the mentor feels that you require additional assistance, you may be referred to another mentor or trainer.

No, the cost of the certificate is included in the programme package.
