Our mini-courses are designed for those interested in part-time format classes, and, unsure of their time commitment. Mini-courses are designed for those looking for a specialize in a certain topic and/or for those to get their feet wet with data science technology. Individuals can sign-up for mini-courses in 12, 18, and 24-hour formats. Courses are organized by level with 100 as beginner.
Our curriculum is designed to prepare students for data-driven jobs such as entry-level data scientists, data engineers or data analysts. Classes are project heavy and learning intensive. Women and veterans receive 20% of all mini-courses.
