    Oustanding intro to data science and machine learning

    Without question, this is an outstanding Bootcamp for those looking to break into the field of data science. The curriculum is structured to help students master the essential vocabulary in Python (and R) needed to gather, clean, analyze and visualize fairly large data sets(up to a few million records of data) as well as master the theory behind the traditional machine learning algorithms used in supervised and unsupervised learning - ie. penalized MLR, SVM, DA, LR, DT, RF, Gradient boos...

    Graduate of Sept '19 cohort

    The NYCDSA is about as rigorous an education as it's possible to pack into 3 months. I was a total beginner in coding, computer science, math, and statistics, so I found the experience very challenging, but very rewarding. Data science is not something to get into idly, but if you're committed, you should be able to make it through. It helps to know someone outside the camp who can assist with the coursework, even though their group of instructors and TAs is top notch. You're going to en...

    A great bootcamp!

    NYCDSA is a fantastic bootcamp. I picked them on the recommendation of a former student and it didn't disappoint! It was a seriously tough 3 months, I had never coded before I started the course pre-work having just finished a humanties degree and they pack a huge amount in. With their syllabus the course should really be much longer than 3 months, so you'll need to spend time on the pre-work and also consolidating post-bootcamp, but they give you a solid base to work off and plenty of m...

    Supportive and Dedicated Community

    Very fast-paced, intense experience that gave a vigorous run-through of the Computer Science, Mathematical, Statistical, and Business-oriented skills necessary to break into Data Science. You won't graduate an expert, but you'll at have at least a baseline understanding of countless tools that you can continue to develop your understanding of upon graduation. The staff is VERY dedicated to student success and will go out of their way to ensure your understanding, and even more so if you ...

    Project-based Learning is a Must for Data Science

     I have a biomedical engineering background, and I enjoy solving complex problems using quantitative methods.  I had decided to venture into the field of data science and machine learning because I realized that there are many processes that are insufficiently modeled in a deterministic way.  When I graduated with a Master's degree in Data Science, I had acquired many tools and methods in disciplines such as computer science and applied math; however, I was lacking some experience actual...

    Rewarding and Advantageous

    I recently graduated from NYC Data Science Academy in March of 2020. Before I began my cohort, my background was in finance and was a novice in the data science/coding world. Though challenging and difficult at times the staff, instructors, and the TA's really helped me to push myself and assisted me to complete the program. 

    The curriculum not only covers coding and data science but the individual & group projects, presentations, and the helpful feedback is very advantageous ...

    12-Week Data Science Bootcamp

    This bootcamp helped me go from code illiterate to code proficient. The curriculum at NYCDSA is amazing. Trying to become an expert at anything in 3-months is nearly impossible, but NYCDSA does a pretty dang good job of presenting all salient data science topics and pairing these with four major projects that help to solidify your understanding. I was incredibly pleased with the quality of instruction and the expertise of the teachers. It felt like the instructors truly cared about my de...

    True Preparation

    I graduated from the NYC Data Science Academy in September 2019. Though I lived in Austin, TX - home of many data science schools -, after vetting the success of past graduates and the credentials of the instructors at the Academy, I made the decision to temporarily move to New  York to attend this school. 
    The requirements and coursework was very intimidating, but certainly appropriate given the requirements to be an effective data scientist. The typical student spent at least 12 hou...

    Great Learning Experience

    I graduated from NYC Data Science Academy in September 2019. I was recommended by a friend of this bootcamp, as he told me that I will be able to learn a full spectrum of skills needed to enter a data-related job. Having almost finished my Master in Statistics, I wasn’t sure about the tools needed in the industry, because the master program focuses very much on theory but not on the practical tools.  Hence, I was very glad to be introduced to a toolkit of data science skills, those of wh...

    Immersive 12-week Data Science Bootcamp

    Before thinking about any kind of bootcamp, my background was in finance and I wanted to brush up on coding skills and my statistics knowledge. Once I decided I wanted to explore careers in data, I spent an insane amount of hours researching and talking people. I was scared to leave my job without any guarantee of getting a new job. Ultimately, I chose NYCDSA, and looking back, I am very grateful that I did. The people that I talked to from admissions were friendly, informative, and help...
