Four Benefits of Online Data Science Bootcamps

Taking a data science bootcamp is a great way to help you make a career change to data science, or to hone your existing skills. Traditionally, these programs have been delivered in an immersive in-person format, however, online bootcamps are becoming increasingly popular. Here are a few reasons why NYC Data Science Academy’s students love the online bootcamp option:

1. Online Community of Data Science Instructors & Mentors

An important part of any learning experience is communication with educators and fellow students. Online students at NYC Data Science Academy join a dedicated Slack community where they can ask questions and interact with current students, alumni, and staff.

2. Dedicated Meeting Portal for 1-on-1 Interactions

The online meeting portal allows students to schedule meetings with industry expert mentors to discuss coursework, projects, or career advice. These mentors are professional data scientists as well as licensed instructors. Typically, students meet with a mentor once a week for about an hour. Online students can book up to 80 hours of 1-on-1 interactions with mentors throughout the bootcamp.

 

3. Industry-Led Projects

The core requirement for graduation from the online bootcamp is the completion of four projects. Online students present to their work during project presentation days, which occur twice a month. These presentations allow students to showcase their work to mentors and instructors.

4. Career Support

Upon completion of the online bootcamp, all students receive personalized job support, including full access to all NYCDSA resources (which includes over 1,000 alumni) to help them find data science positions. The career services offered by NYCDSA include resume and interview assistance, LinkedIn profile review, and elevator pitch workshops. Students also participate in mock technical interviews and coding tasks, one-on-one post-interview review and feedback sessions, and a hiring partner event series.
