Data Science is one of the most important and versatile fields in our data-driven world. Modern technology has given us access to huge amounts of data, and with this has come the ability to extract useful information and use it in ways that were previously impossible.
Data scientists find appropriate data to solve business questions, perform analyses, interpret results in a business context, and present these results to a broader audience using visual techniques and methods to make a compelling case.
Note: This course overview is for informational purposes only. The content and learning objectives are set by your teachers, and may be subject to change as a result of ongoing curriculum revisions, the actual pace of learning by students, and other factors.
Coding in Python or R
Learn to code from the basics—no experience required. You’ll learn either Python or R, both popular coding languages for statistical analysis and data science.
Data Science Fundamentals
The pipeline from data to models in production, deep learning and the data scientist's skill set. Data cleaning, manipulation, visualisation, collaborative work and version control. Likelihood, probability distributions, hypothesis testing.
Learn concepts relating to the field of Data Science, its uses and limitations. You’ll be exposed to ethical issues and debates in the Data Science field, enabling you to make ethically-informed judgements on these issues. Understand global issues, developments and their implications for the future, as well as ways data influences diversity in the workplace. You’ll learn soft skills necessary to excel in the workplace when working in an international culture.
"More importantly than programming, basic machine learning, and the Data Science syllabus, I hope to teach my students how to acquire skills to teach themselves new things they will need in the future."
Includes in-depth information about the industry, our curriculum, and internship options.

Thanks to our professor, Andrew Collier, and TA, Arthur Wu, whose data science expertise was matched both by pedagogical ability and engagement, my classmates and I have not only strengthened our coding skills, but earned a contextual understanding of how big data analysis can inform the guidance of major systems and reveal otherwise overlooked patterns.
An unbelievable starting point and foundation with great resources and networks. iX allows you to learn and apply a new skill at a fast rate while having exposure to a new culture, giving you a real life experience.
After completing the course I’m a couple of steps further in the search for meaning through data. If not, I’ve gained a family of amazing people. At the end of the day, that’s what data science is. A quest to find meaning where it didn’t exist before.
I've honestly learned more in four weeks than I have in three months of many of my college courses. It's been an honor and a privilege to work with someone as knowledgeable as our teacher, Andrew. I woke up every day interested in what we were learning next.
Honestly, I can't believe the amount of knowledge and skills I've acquired and how much I felt empowered in such a short period of time. I worked hard on the exercises and projects not to get good grades, but because I was inspired and eager to dive into the materials. I'm confident that the data science skills I learned will open up lots of opportunities that I didn't think of before.
