Is there an instructor for Explore Data Science?
There is no in-person instructor, as this is completed online at your own pace. However, a teaching assistant is available for content-related questions, and technical support for issues with the application. Both are reachable through online help.
Is this an on-site training course?
No, this is a series of online exercises and resources, and participants can complete Explore Data Science from any location during their 2-month access period.
How is this course different from the immersive Metis Data Science Bootcamp?
Explore Data Science follows many of the learning tenets that we follow in the bootcamp. Metis' approach with the bootcamp is to teach our students key concepts while reinforcing the learning with challenges and projects. The challenges and projects provide the practical connection for the lessons. Explore Data Science will take participants on a similar learning journey, albeit online and self-paced. Please see our bootcamp syllabus here.
Will this help me get into the Metis Data Science Bootcamp?
It will give participants a greater foundation in data science. This should benefit them if applying to the Metis Data Science Bootcamp, but it does not in any way guarantee a spot in the bootcamp.
Where can I find a detailed syllabus?
Please visit Explore Data Science for more details.
Do you offer placement services?
No. We only offer career support for our bootcamp.
Is there a certificate of completion?
Yes, those who complete Explore Data Science are presented with a certificate of completion. They'll also leave with a working conceptual understanding of the data science field and will have experience using a wide variety of data science techniques.
