Online Data Science Certification Program

There is a growing demand in industry for data scientists!

We are living in the age of a new wave of digital revolutions, led by cloud and internet technologies, resulting in an unprecedented amount of data produced every day. The ability to make sense of this data, foresee the applications of insights produced by it, and communicate effectively these insights to a diverse range of audiences is of paramount importance to engineers and other professionals.

The Online Data Science program at Koç University has a computational focus and students are trained in advanced methods, tools, and applications to help them achieve the above goals.

• The program aims to refresh linear algebra, probability and statistics knowledge, introduce the broad field of artificial intelligence, teach fundamental machine learning models and deep learning approaches.
• In addition to learning about the theory, the participants develop skills in Python, R and Julia. The program concludes with an applied end-to-end data science project of participants choosing with a faculty supervisor.
