    This is a class for computer-literate people with no programming background who wish to learn basic Python programming. The course is aimed at those who want to learn “data wrangling” – manipulating downloaded files to make them amenable to analysis. We concentrate on language basics such as list and string manipulation, control structures, simple data analysis packages, and introduce modules for downloading data from the web. This Introductory Python class runs over four weeks, with five hours of class per week (split into 2 ½ hour evening classes). Classes will be given in a lab setting, with student exercises mixed with lectures. Students should bring a laptop to class. There will be a modest amount of homework after each class.

    I joined NYC Data Science Academy this summer to help me make a career transition from Material Science Engineering into Data Science, and in short, it worked! I increased my salary, easily making the Bootcamp worth it as a purely financial decision, and am starting to work in a new exciting field. 

    I chose them over others because I was impressed with their instructors and they offer continuous career support after graduating.  I was not disappointed. Their instructors are passionate and knowledgeable and seem to genuinely care about teaching and helping their students. After graduating I had two internships directly from relationships and connections I made at the Bootcamp and had many interviews from the same network.  Their career services have always been available, helping me with my resume and acting as a soundboard to help prep for interviews.  

    I only recommend getting into Data Science if you love math and coding. If you do and are willing to put in the work NYC Data Science Academy will prepare you for and help you get a job.

    I was in your shoes not too long ago and chose to attend the full-time program in the first quarter of 2020 due to the overwhelmingly positive reviews that I read on this page. As a career switcher from finance, I think NYCDSA does a great job of helping execute the tangible steps necessary to make a switch like mine, so at this point the ball in your court to take action to change the trajectory of your career. 

    The curriculum can be best described as comprehensive - it covers Python, R, SQL, and Machine Learning techniques to provide students with the tools needed to further develop their data science skills and ultimately become competitive job candidates. That said, I must stress the importance of putting in the genuine effort to get the most out of this program. Participation in this program isn't a job guarantee, so please don't go into this thinking of this as a shortcut towards placement in an incredibly competitive field to break into. 

    I graduated in March 2020 just as the COVID-19 pandemic was starting, so things like the job fair weren't an option for me, but I do feel that the academy made an earnest effort to make up for this through engagement. Continued check-ins from staff and complimentary workshops really gave me the push I needed to keep going through this unique time and ultimately find a role as a data consultant. 

    In short, there's no time like the present, and if you can honestly tell yourself that you are willing put in the effort to learn about this awesome field, unequivocally DO IT!

    I attended the Data Science 12 week Bootcamp in Sept 2019. Making career change is definitely the best decision that I ever made. I found a job three months after graduation. 

    The professor all have PHD. They are all very knowledge and helpful. The TA mostly have master's degree and PHD. The curriculum is intensive but it is very informational. The machine learning projects that we completed are very good. I have a few interview questions that asked me to explain my machine learning project. 

    The bootcamp is expensive but it is an good investment for people who want to make quick career change.

    I started this program with absolutely Zero coding background. I was a little skeptical about signing up this program. However, school prep you 2 coding languages (Python and R) from scratch. Instructors are very friendly and helpful, students can reach instructors easily if you have questions. After the 4 weeks intensive basic coding training, i was able to understan and build a strong base for the advanced topic such as, Machine Learning, Visulization. There were 4 projects needed to be completed in order to finished the program. The data we aquried for final capstone project was from the company in leading industries. I would say this school opened a door for you in the data world and help you land your dream job in the future.

    In trying to enter the Data Science field, I came to the conclusion that the bootcamp route was my goldilocks option, somewhere between self-teaching (low cost/commitment) and a master’s degree (high cost/commitment). If you come to the same conclusion, I couldn't imagine a better bootcamp experience than NYCDSA.

    Curriculum: 
    Comprehensive and (more importantly) realistic. NYCDSA focuses on building a strong DS foundation. So instead of becoming a superficial expert on the most complicated buzz-word models, you become a solid expert on DS foundations with experience applying those foundations to projects. This turned out to be hugely important, as many of my DS job interviews focused on fundamental ML concepts, and I could give in-depth answers.

    Faculty: 
    Top notch. The instructors are experts with years of experience, and they're skilled at breaking down complex topics. This allows them to work with both beginners and advanced students. Further, they're incredibly supportive, and always available to answer questions and help with projects. For me, that alone made the investment worth it - to have experts available to help work through your questions, instead of banging your head against the wall trying to figure it out yourself.

    Job Support: 
    The Covid job market is tough, but the NYCDSA team does what they can to help. They made introductions/recommendations, hosted events, helped prep for interviews, and met with me many times for career services. Of course, at the end of the day, you’ve got to get the job… but they’re on your side every step of the way.

    The only issue I have with the bootcamp route is that going in, there’s often this “do a bootcamp, get a job” misconception. More realistically, it’s “do a bootcamp, then study for a few months independently, then commit yourself to interview prep and job hunting, then get a job.” 

    As long as you’re ready for the work, the bootcamp can be a perfect first step. For me, NYCDSA and the self-led study that followed provided the very necessary foundation of my DS career.

    I have a philosophy degree and was working as a data analyst, but I was interested in taking my career in a more technical direction. NYC Data Science academy provided me with all of the tools to become proficient as a Data Scientist. Their 3-month program gives students a unique opportunity to gain a deep conceptual understanding of the field as well as exposure to real-world projects. No other program provides this level of immersion in the field. The projects are real data science projects that you would work on as a professional data scientist and provide you with an impressive portfolio.

    It really comes down to the people at NYCDSA from the instructors to career services and the alumni network. They are all ready to make a significant investment in you and your career as a data scientist. I loved learning from my instructors and from my peers. I truly feel like I am part of a community. Even in difficult economic times, you are put into a great position to launch a career as a Data Scientist. You need to be willing to invest a lot of time, but the investment pays off!

    NYCDSA went above and beyond to make sure that their students had a stellar bootcamp experience despite being in the midst of a global pandemic. Having a "live online" model meant that we were all taking classes remotely, but that instructors were giving their lectures live through zoom and using screen sharing to share lecture notes, slides, and example code. Instructors and TAs were very readily available digitally, and made sure to make themselves available to teach and answer questions at almost all hours of the day. 

    Aside from the impressive response to COVID, overall the curriculum was very involved - a difficult but worthwhile challenge for both beginners and experts alike! The coursework is designed to push you and involve real-world datasets as examples in your analysis, and projects give you a real sense of how to approach data analysis in an intelligent way. This a great place to learn!

    I'm a software engineer with work experience in Business Intelligence. I always felt data science was a logical extension of business intelligence. I had been planning to transition into the data science space by joining an immersive data science Bootcamp. I picked NYCDataSceince Academy after researching on various boot camps near my area.

    My experience has been a positive one. I was able to learn a lot of data science-related subjects in a short span of 3 months.
    Thanks to the instructors, who were always there for the students. They really cared about the students and are well versed in the subjects they teach. The career services are very efficient, leveraging a large community of alumni.
    I would recommend this Bootcamp to professionals who are looking to break into the field of data science.

    I attended the 12-week Data Science Bootcamp in May 2020 and gained a great deal from the experience.  I came in with a background in mathematics, but with limited experience programming in Python.  By the end of the bootcamp I was very comfortable using Python to work with data and run machine-learning analyses such as Random Forests and Gradient Boosting.

    What I thought was exceptional about the course was the quality of the instructors.  These ranged from mathematicians with a distinguished track record in academia, to hands-on software engineers with experience working with complex systems.  In all cases the instructors were encouraging and generous with their time.

    The bootcamp has an extensive pre-work section and I'd advise any attendees to complete this thoroughly.  12 weeks is a short time to cover the amount of material that's on the curriculum, so building basic coding skills before the start will be very beneficial.

    All-in-all I felt the bootcamp delivered exactly the skills that I was looking to build.  I'd recommend it highly to anybody who wants a serious foundation in the subject.

Thanks!
