    Lead your field

    From the getgo this program sets you up to succeed. They can be a little critical and harsh sometimes, but I promise they want nothing more than for you to do the best you can. As long as you communicate your issues, they will work with you no matter what. I couldn't have asked for a more supportive team of instructors. They also have a dedicated lifelong team that helps you meet with and explore whatever professional options you'd like. They're also the only nationally accredited progra...

    Very helpful for getting a foothold in a tough NY job market

    Coming from a traditional education background, I was skeptical about the usefulness of any boot camp for transitioning into the data science industry.  In addition, the boot camp is pricey, making one think long and hard about joining, especially in the current economy.  Thus it was a tough decision to attend NYC DSA, but so far, I'm glad that I did. 

    I would say that there are three key advantages that NYC DSA has over its competitors: (i) The quality of the curriculum, (ii) Ess...

    Amazing in depth bootcamp!

    The experience in NYC Data Science Academy was life changing for me. Prior to NYC data science academy, I was a Business Analyst at an insuretech firm where I had almost none exposure to coding, programming, not to mention machine learning.

    The instructors are extremely professional and helpful. I was able to get hired in 3 months after graduation!

    Best Data Science Bootcamp

    Let’s get straight to the point: if you decide to build a career path to the world of Data Science, NYC Data Science Academy is the best option.
    Why? I’m glad you ask and that’s why I’m back here to share some experience from the perspective of 12-week DS Camp alumni, and help resolve your concerns because I had the same doubt 6 years ago.

    Data Science Manager

    I made the choice to participate in the 3-month intensive bootcamp back in the summer of 2016 at NYC Data Science Academy, after an uneasy career decision to switch from chemical engineering to the burgeoning field of data science.

    The journey begins with Google Search. The brand stood out in search results so I paid a visit physically then. To be frank, I was a little concerned if I was able to go through the bootcamp as I was fresh out of school and have little exposure at schoo...

    Data Analyst

    I'd gladly recommend NYC Data Science Academy's 12 week Data Science with Machine Learning course.  I took this course in the Fall of 2021 and got a job offer as a data analyst just 2.5 months after graduating.

    The teaching is high quality and the tutors are always available and ready to help.  Vivian, Courtney, Royce, and so many others were incredibly helpful.

    Data Science Fellow

    I recently completed the Data Science (ML) Bootcamp at NYC Data Science Academy. I already had a bit of a coding background from my Ph.D. program, but I didn't have the industry-centered DS/ML experiences. I chose NYCDSA because they teach all three of the data science tools used in the industry (SQL, Python, and R). 

    I enjoyed and learned a lot from the lectures. Some lectures (~5%) were taught by a new teacher, so it was a little bit unprepared, but the other 95% of ...

    Data Science Fellow

    A very useful program that equips students with essential skills needed to land a data-related job. The program teaches students Python, R, SQL, and machine learning techniques so that graduated alumni would feel comfortable going through technical interviews. You will have the chance of getting involved with both individual and group projects, testing your ability to solve ad-hoc tasks which are crucial in real-world scenarios.

    Great Experience

    I’d highly recommend NYC Data Science Academy’s Data Analytics Bootcamp to anyone looking to pursue a career in this field. I first discovered the bootcamp through a family friend who completed the program. After initial discussions and learning about the post-bootcamp networking services, I signed up for the online courses. The three major highlights of the bootcamp are Python, R, and SQL. You are instructed to follow online lectures which are complimented by homework assignments, proje...

    Truly helpful

    I joined the 12-week data science BootCamp in July 2021. Having a Ph.D. in mathematics, I had some understanding of when things are translated into math, but my programming skills have been rusty. I am searching for an efficient way to build up the toolkit as a data scientist, and NYCDSA helped me a lot throughout the process.

    The BootCamp was great in building a comprehensive skill set for a data scientist. It starts with some warmup on programming languages, followed by essentia...
