Professional Certification in Data Science
This program equips you with the fundamental skills you will need as a Data Scientist / Engineer. This is the first certification of our three part Master Series in Data Science.
You will learn how to get, clean, and process data from different sources. You will then gain skills in exploratory data analysis, visualization, and communication. You will learn about text and tree models, ensembles, recommendation systems, clustering, and Bayesian Statistics.
After you finish this program, you will be ready to run complex analyses on all kinds of data on your own. This will get you ready for entry level to intermediate data science jobs.
After successfully completing the program, you will be:
1. Ready to run complex data science analyses on all kinds of data on your own.
2. Awarded the Professional Certification in Data Science on successful completion of the course.
3. Eligible to attend Data Science and Engineering: Y, the second part of the 3-part Master Series
4. Prepared to pursue advanced (graduate and above) level studies in Data Science
5. Qualified to seek entry level and intermediate Data Science positions in the industry
Anyone who seeks to learn data science and who has the necessary prerequisites. The course is however tailored to students as well as working professionals, who have some background in maths as well as programming.
1. Working knowledge of python as represented by the subjects in Python-Preparator
2. Working knowledge of machine learning as represented by the subjects in ML-preparator
3. You can, at your option, either take those free courses and pass them, or test into DSE: X
Bi-weekly lessons with labs and quizzes
Ten or more hours/week to interact with an experienced & accomplished mentor
Complex problems that challenge you to apply what you learned
10–12 week long Capstone Project with one of our partner companies or faculty

Our programs are priced for access, and are affordable for most around the world who seek the best training in sought after areas like AI and Data Science. For those who might still need financing, we have EMI payments available.
It is a 3-part series where each program leads to an individual certification.
You can take these programs consecutively or at your own pace.
Knowledge of a minimum of high school level mathematics and basic python programming is important for this program. For detailed perquisites, please refer to the main programs page for Data Science: X
We offer LIVE online course prep programs on Python and Machine Learning foundations, free of cost, before the start of DS-X cohorts. These are held on a weekend led by Harvard faculty to quickly get you ready for the DS: X program.
Students who finish Level Z with an ‘A’ grade are guaranteed placement opportunities. We recommend you take at least two programs one after the other, and then take a break, before you take the third and final part of the series. That will enable the system to help you better.
If your basics are strong, you can directly take the Data Science: Y program which is the second of the three part Master: Data Science.
The goal of this program is to get you ready for entry level positions in Data Science. If you wish to do so rapidly, we train you comprehensively in data sourcing, analysis and modelling. This will help you in advanced education in the field and you will also be eligible to take the Data Science: Y program.
New cohorts of the Data Science: X program will be held every 10 to 12 weeks. You can take this program at a time that best suits you.
