    Data Science 60 hr - prepares students to meet the industry standards

    Trying to enter the Data Science world with a Master's degree and a few online courses is not quite enough, as it cannot enable a new graduate to think like a domain expert who could help formulate the right questions. Even with the right questions, students like me have to demonstrate the ability to apply the right concept to solve the problem. Divergence Academy's Data Science 60 hr course bridges the gap that students seem to have, between the generic exposure of concepts and the curren...

    Data Science 60 hr Course

    This Data Science course spearheaded by Vish and Scott ticked a lot of boxes for me unlike the other data science courses available online. The telling difference was in the way the instructors helped me get my foundations right and gave me the ability to analyze the problems in an effective way. A lot of work went into compiling the course work that is relevant to the current industry standards and the assignments helped me dwell deep into the concepts. I was introduced to some pret...

    It got me a data science job!

    As an aspiring data scientist and a recent graduate, I had decided to complete numerous data science courses online. I presumed I was quite proficient at data science and even marketed myself to recruiters as one. I could not have been more wrong. Data science is not something which can be learned by conventional means. It needs a certain level of business acumen and several hours of guided teaching. Online courses which claim to teach you data science within a few hours is not even ...

    Plunge into Data Science

    Practical and Theory combined together give a very good perspective of Data Science for anyone who wants to learn this field. Classwork/labs + Homework greatly help, but make sure that you invest the time to do them with due dilligence.

    Divergence 60-hr course is great!

     

    The experience I have here is awesome. Vish does not only cover normal python and ML algorithm but also scala and cloud platform. He also provides a lot of helpful insights about how the industry works and how the data scientists approach the problem. The classmates here are also from many different backgrounds and it is a great opportunity for me to learn from others. I definitely think this 60-hr course is helpful for me.

    Nice learning experience

    I took the data science short course. As a no technical background student, I found it is very useful for people who want to get in the industry with a little analysis knowledge. It gave me the knowledge as well as practice of many needed skills for data scientist from the industry prospective. The course focus more on python as well as the most useful statistics theory behind those model. It takes only 6 weeks and I think it is suitable for those people in transit.

    Intense Amazing Experience

    I have had the amazing experience and opportunity to take both the Data Science Part-Time course and the Data Science Immersive. There are almost too many great things to say about both but I will try to be brief. Specifically with the Immersive course if I could describe it with one word it would be "hands-on" and I probably need one more word and that would be "caring". Sravan Ankaraju (founder) and Beth (advisor) have done an outstanding job making this course top notch.

    Data Science Part-Time

    I was part of the 17th cohort for the Data Science Part-Time / 60-Hour Weekend course at Divergence Academy.  As an aspiring data science professional, I am so glad that I took this course under the tutelage of Scott Love and Vish Puttagunta.  Both Scott and Vish taught the course material in a fashion that emphasized less on theory and more on practice, which satisfies the expectations of industry.  I especially liked how Vish made linear and logistic regression, neural networks, and Naiv...

    DataScience Short Course

    Took the 6 week-end Datascience course at Divergence Academy. Vish Puttagunta (Instructor) is one of the best instructor in dfw area and his approach & the curriculum he built towards this course is perfect.
