There are as many online IT-related bootcamps as professionals across disciplines need to stay up to date with today’s rapidly changing technologies. Bootcamps provide a new way to learn IT-related skills, and are offered in a more short-term, immersive experience than traditional educational settings. Ultimately, the bootcamps teach hopeful IT professionals the skills they require for a career in their preferred field.
The typical bootcamp lasts between six weeks to 24 months, although most programs run from 12 and 40 weeks. Bootcamps deliver intensive learning coupled with great speed—after all, there is a lot of information to absorb, and time is limited! As a result, bootcamps limit instruction to the data science skills that are most relevant and needed for the position that the student is interested in getting. You don’t go to a programming bootcamp expecting to learn how to do cloud-based backups, for instance.
The better bootcamps provide an intense, accelerated learning experience coupled with hands-on data science projects that let students practice applying their newfound skills and knowledge. Also, they help their graduates find jobs in their chosen field—a huge advantage in super competitive areas.
You can find all kinds of bootcamps. Since the hallmark of a good bootcamp is flexibility and accessibility for students, they are broken down into two main types, each specially suited to accommodate a different student situation:
Bear in mind that the time figures aren’t set in stone, nor are they the same for every bootcamp offered. For instance, one specific bootcamp offers part-time at six hours per week for 10-12 weeks, and full-time at 40 hours a week for 10-12 weeks.
Besides the full-time/part-time dichotomy, there are the questions of where you attend bootcamp and how you participate in it. Your choices are:
Considering that data science is the study of data using algorithms, scientific methods, and programming skills to extract meaningful insights and knowledge from any structured or unstructured data, then obviously, a data science bootcamp teaches you how to perform these tasks easily.
But seriously, if you’re looking for a career in data science, you need to gain an understanding of popular data science tools, and develop the required skills. Data science bootcamps, supplemented with extra online courses, will get you where you want to be.
A data science bootcamp teaches you things like:
The more intensive bootcamps, normally the full-time ones, offer more practice, more live instructor training and interaction, more coding, and more hands-on projects. This is hardly surprising, considering the intensity of full-time bootcamp training.
While there is undoubtedly more prestige in getting your Master’s degree in data science, it’s not for everyone. Yes, when you complete your studies, you have a Ph.D. in data science, and that degree will open doors. But the amount of time and expense involved is a huge burden, and if you’re still paying off student loans from your undergraduate (Bachelor’s or Associate’s) degree, then taking on more debt could be problematic.
If you’ve already earned a Master’s degree, then going for a Ph.D. may seem excessive. However, if you’ve mapped out a career path in data science that includes obtaining a Bachelor’s, then a Master’s in data science and its related fields of study, go for it.
For those who may not have even known that a career in data science was an option, the data science bootcamp is the perfect choice.
As a final note, bear in mind that merit or skilled-based hiring is slowly supplanting degree-based hiring. Why go through all the hassle of earning a degree when you can gain the specialized training you need through an online Data Science Bootcamp?
So you’ve decided to go the Data Scientist Bootcamp route. Good for you! But what comes next? There are so many bootcamps to choose from. How do you find the best fit for you? Keep these simple tips in mind, and you can’t go wrong:
We’ve discussed Data Science Bootcamps and touched upon Master’s degrees, but you should consider a third option. Simplilearn has a comprehensive selection of online courses available for the would-be data scientist.
Begin with Simplilearn’s data science tutorial. This starting tutorial is a great way to ease into the vast and complex world of data science. After completing the tutorial, build on what you’ve learned by taking additional courses such as data analytics, artificial intelligence, and Power BI.
