Data Science: Y

Expert Certification in Data Science

The Data Science: Y program will build on your basic skills in Data Science, and elevate them a notch. This is the second certification of our three part Master Series in Data Science.

You will add decision theory, experimentation, and advanced modeling to your repertoire.  On the engineering side, you will add product development and deployment skills, at scale. In-short, you will become a guru at production ML systems.

You will be ready to create production machine learning systems after you finish the program. You will also be able to help senior management take complex machine learning based decisions. You will thus be ready to pursue mid to senior level opportunities in the field.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Master Certification Series in Data Science?

It is a 3-part series where each program leads to an individual certification. 

  • Level: X is for beginners in Data Science
  • Level: Y is for advanced learners in DS
  • Level Z: Is for expert level practitioners

You can take these programs consecutively or at your own pace.

What are the prerequisites for the program?

This is an advanced program and is the second part of our Master Series. If you have taken Data Science: X or have equivalent knowledge in Data Science, you are eligible for the program. The detailed prerequisites for this program can be found above.

What are the resources I can avail if I don’t fulfill the prerequisites?

You can begin your Data Science journey with our Data Science: X program, which is part one of the three part Master: Data Science, if you do not meet the prerequisites.

Do you advise taking only a part or the entire 3-part Master: Data Science consecutively?

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.

What kind of career opportunities may I expect after completing this program?

The program will get you ready for mid-senior to senior level positions in the field of Data Science. This program will also set you up for the Data Science: Z, which will prepare you for the most sought after expert level opportunities in the field.
