"I have only been at Payoff for 4 months, but I’ve already been given a 10k/year raise. They wanted to let me know how much they value what I am doing for the company, and that's mostly me executing on the knowledge I gained at my time at Galvanize."

What You Will Learn

Module 1

Data Science Fundamentals: Python and Statistics

Students jump right into a Python-based curriculum where we explore and learn best practices in statistical analysis, including frequentist and Bayesian methods. By practicing software engineering best practices, and pairing programming with fellow students from different backgrounds, students master fundamental data science concepts.

Module 2

Machine Learning & Real-World Case Studies

In the second module we start diving into machine learning, working on real problems in classification, regression, and clustering utilizing structured and unstructured data sets. We’ll discover libraries like scikit-learn, NumPy, and SciPy, and use real world case studies to root our understanding of these libraries to real world applications.

Module 3

Natural Language Processing & Data Visualization

In our third quarter we add natural language processing and recommender systems to our body of data science knowledge. We learn open-source big data processing, and cap the quarter off with honing the art of data visualization and insight. By the end of this quarter, students should be well versed in conceptual knowledge and are ready to embark on independent projects.

Module 4

Capstone Project & Job-Market Readiness

To complete our immersive program, students work independently on an applied data science project that is unique to his or her interests or career aspirations in a Capstone Project. These rojects reflect the technical skill set students have learned throughout the course, and demonstrate their competence and fitness as a real data scientist.
