    HEY - DO IT!!

    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 Py...

    Data Scientist

    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 learni...

    Amazing Staff

    I was not sure what to expect before I enrolled. The pace is fast, the program is demanding. You need all your ability and energy for this course. The staff is composed of brilliant and kind folks who are there to support you in all possible ways. It is up to the individual  how much is taken out of the program. It is not inexpensive but certainly amazing experience and tool under your belt.

    Excellent Data Science Bootcamp

    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 b...

    The bootcamp experience can't get better than this

    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 super...

    Fantastic Coursework and Instructors!

    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 questio...

    Excellent Teaching Staff and Thorough Curriculum

    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 ...

    Immersive 12-week Data Science Bootcamp

    I attended the 12-week Data Science Bootcamp at NYC Data Science Academy and it was a fantastic experience. It was meant to be in-person but the classes were moved online due to pandemic. The transition was seamless even though we were the first on-site cohort to become fully online.  I can't recommend this program highly enough to anyone interested in a career in data science and machine learning. You will learn a lot in a very short amount of time so be prepared f...
