    NYC Data Science Academy is Worth It

    Having had experience with data analysis and programming separately, I wanted to tie the two skills together. I ended up discovering Data Science and decided to pursue the field. After some research, I discovered NYC Data Science Academy’s Part-Time bootcamp.

    I originally picked NYCDSA because of its flexibility with its part-time online program and its coursework using R. Having read reviews online I was reassured that it was one of the most competitive programs, whic...

    You get of the program what you put in

    I completed NYC Data Science Academy’s 12-week full time bootcamp in December 2021. The program helped me transition from civil engineering and land a job in data science at a higher salary than I had previously. The program is fast paced and covers topics such as programming fundamentals in Python and R, SQL, machine learning, and the typical data science toolkit and fundamental concepts. If you do not have basic programming knowledge and a decent math foundation, I recommend putting in...

    Great education if you put in the work!

    NYC Data Science Academy's 12-week live full-time (remote) bootcamp helped me change careers from chemical engineering to data science in 6 months. I chose their program because they covered an extensive variety of data science tools and topics and seemed to emphasize how to become a data scientist more than simply how to code. There are resources available throughout the course to help improve coding skills but you will get the most out of the course if you spend time learning python, S...

    Great instructors, peers, and projects

    NYC Data Science Academy's Data Science bootcamp is a great route to take for professional development. I picked NYC DSA as its flagship bootcamp covers not just python and SQL, but also R and machine learning, unlike some of the other programs I applied to. I came in with software engineering experience so it was important that a bootcamp focus on the areas I am unfamiliar with—statistics and machine learning. I learned a ton about the whole data science flow, from cleaning to feature e...

    An amazing and very positive experience

    I graduated college with bachelor’s degrees in Computer Science and Statistics in December of 2019 and had difficulty finding a job after graduation.  I decided to attend the NYCDSA with hopes of filling in some of the knowledge gaps I had in Data Science/Machine Learning and to find a platform that could provide me career support.  I attended the 6-month part-time online bootcamp in February of 2021.   I chose the NYCDSA after reading some of the projects that past...

    Great instructors, very helpful career services

    I came into the bootcamp with zero coding experience but a strong background in mathematics--I had been enrolled in a PhD program, but put it on hold for the bootcamp. I was looking to make a career change from the rather bleak academic job market, and NYCDSA definitely helped me achieve this. The instructors are great at explaining things and are clearly experts in the field. They offered great personalized advice, which for me amounted to building up my business intelligence skills, as...

    Intensive but worth it

    I graduated from NYCDSA's in-person data science + machine learning bootcamp, and also worked there as a TA for a few months while I applied for full-time jobs. For a little about me, I had withdrawn from a graduate program in pharmaceutical research and medicine, did a post-bac in comp sci, and then attended the NYCDSA data science + ML program.

    The curriculum moves quickly, covering everything from a short review of programming fundamentals to data manipulation and statistics li...

    It was not easy, but it was worth it.

    Having successfully completed the bootcamp and joined an awesome company as a data scientist, whose role includes machine learning engineering and software development, I solidly recommend NYCDSA.
    The time had come for me to leave IT for the land of data science and ML. Although I received a bachelors in CS, my utilization of that degree had been delayed up to that point. I chose NYCDSA for a couple of reasons: it was the top rated data science bootcamp, and afte...

    Definitely worth for the effort

    After completing my bachelor's degree, I noticed a gap between academic and professional, this was why I decided to enroll in the 12 weeks program at NYC Data Science Academy. The lecture materials cover data analytic to machine learning, as well as four different industry-related projects. The amount of knowledge I received in such a short time period was overwhelming. If I had a chance to get back to the program, I would spend more time going over the notes from class, trying to finish...

    I had a job offer before my last day of 12 week Program

    NYC Data Science Academy is absolutely worth the investment. I wanted to switch my career to Data Science/Data Engineering and took the leap of faith. I started the 12 week Bootcamp on Sep 2021 and I was very satisfied with the course structure, projects, and learning experience. In my experience, we do not need a degree to be Data Scientist and NYC DSA prepares you for the first step towards your Data Science career.

    Data Scientist

    My experience at the NYCDSA was really amazing although it was fully remote at the time (Jan - Apr 2021). When I joined, I already had strong skills in programming but my data science skills were close to none. The teachers at the academy were very patient with all of us and taught us everything from basic programming in R and Python, basic data analysis, statistics before moving on to machine learning models.
    I decided to go with the academy because of its AMAZING alumni network. Bef...

    Graduate

    I graduated from the 12-week remote-live bootcamp in December 2020 and have since transitioned into a data scientist position. Based on my personal experience, I would say that the education/training provided by the bootcamp and the career support provided afterwards are excellent and well worth the investment if someone is truly serious about making a career transition into the data science. 

    Prior to enrolling into the bootcamp, I worked in academic research & clinical trial...
