    Data Science & Machine Learning Graduate

    Metis was overall an amazing experience. From the application through graduation the staff and instructors were supportive and responsive! The course content was well designed and mostly clear. The most valuable part of the Metis experience was the peer support and 1:1 instructor/TA meetings. My peers and I still keep in contact for job searching job and networking. Additionally, the 1:1 feedback from TAs and instructors was pivotal to my learning. I also really appreciated the post-boot...

    Solid bootcamp for career transition

    I chose Metis because of the career support, network, and job portal. The curriculum is good but because every module is 2 weeks some of the modules felt rushed and some felt dragged out. The instructional and career support are great. There are 2 instructors and 2 TA's for each module. They all have multiple time slots for one-on-one office hours. If you don't understand something or need help with your project, there is always someone available to support you. The instructors are famil...

    An excellent challenge that sticks with you

    The Metis DS bootcamp was life-transforming, in the best sense. Perhaps no other three-month period in my life was so distinctive. It was tons of hard work, which I always felt glad to do, all day, late into the night, and most of the weekends too. (If there were more than 7 days in the week or more than 24 hours in the day, I would have spent the additional ones on the bootcamp work.) Ok, so I’m already unusually inclined and motivated to learn (I had a PhD already) and I’ve been keenly...

    My experience in Metis' accredited Data Science Bootcamp

    # Preparation

    Before you apply I recommend you do as much of the following as you can:

    * Take a college-level intro to matrix algebra course (and any pre-req's required to pass that course)
    * Acquire introductory level python programming skills, but if you want to build web applications then learn OOP with Python and get some Flask under your belt. There are alternatives you'll learn in the class.
    * If you can take a class on machine learning and deep learning before ...

    Great experience that can give you a leg up

    Metis was a great experience. The instructors are wonderful and you’ll make great connections and friends with the other students. You’ll have to work a lot over the 3 or so months of the course but you’ll learn a ton along the way. Metis’ career support is also fantastic. That with access to the alumni network can go a long way to helping you find a job. With that being said though you should plan on spending several months after the completion of Metis searching for jobs before realist...

    Data Science And Engineering

    The course structure was great. I had some data science exposure in university (~40 hours total, 1 project).  The Metis bootcamp was around ~400 hours over the 10- weeks with 5 2-week sections and one project for each section.  The instructors were really great and had high expectations of students (we graduated with about 50-60% of the original program participants, although the ones that didn't pass got to retake sections).  I would recommend taking the Data Science and Engineering boo...

    A prudent investment in my future that has paid dividends many times over

    Metis delivered on all my expectations. I decided to explore making a career transition to Data Science after working as a postdoc for 3 years after completing my PhD in Political Science at Cornell and feeling less than satisfied with my academic career prospects. After teaching myself some basic Python and brushing up on my linear algebra, probability and statistics (I had done a minor in Math in undergrad just for fun but that was over a decade ago and all my Poli Sci research was sup...

    Wonderful experience

    Metis is on point. They are constantly updating their curriculum based on industry standards. They offer as much 1-1 support as one could desire. They support big ideas and help them come to life. I found a Data Scientist job within 30 days of graduating (it was with a company I'd worked for in the past, but never in data science/technical roles). They also help tailor resumes, and part of the daily routine is preparing students for technical interviews. The people I met at Metis - both ...

    Career changing, if you're willing to do the work

    I enrolled in Metis after a few years of working in analytics as a way to expand my technical toolkit and go deeper into data science. I’d done a lot of research on bootcamps (and taken a somewhat disappointing part time course at one of its competitors) beforehand. I can say with confidence that Metis has the most intensive curriculum in the field and the highest bar for admission and success. The technical assessment you have to pass before you’re even admitted and the amount of pre-wo...

    Excellent introduction to essential data science concepts

    I attended Metis Data Science Summer 2020 Cohort after working at United Airlines as a data analyst. Wanting to make the jump from data analyst to data scientist, I decided Metis was the right choice for me. The coursework is excellent and expansive, covering important data science concepts ranging from natural language processing to deep learning. The coursework is regularly updated to stay up to date with the most recent concepts and algorithms to keep up in a very fast moving industry...

    DS Bootcamp Overview

    This bootcamp gives students everything they need to start a career in Data Science.

    The curriculum itself is very strong, starting off with basic topics and continually building until each student has an understanding of all aspects of data science. Also, the five portfolio-building projects are perfectly spaced out to really drill the concepts from lecture into the student's brain. That being said, the common simile you hear throughout the bootcamp is that it i...

    Great Instructors, Diverse Student Body

    Metis was an experience equal to drinking from a firehose, covering ETL and EDA, basic modeling, regression, classification, visualization, and deep learning. With the onset of COVID-19, Metis has shut all of its physical campuses, moving to an online format. Although I did not get to take advantage of its physical facilities, I was pleasantly surprised with how we, the student body, were able to maintain a good sense of community, in part facing deadlines for projects and presentations ...
