The BrainStation Online Experience

Live Lectures From Industry Leaders

The Brainstation Educators are teaching live every week; this means you’ll be given the opportunity to ask questions in real-time to get the results you’re looking for.

Data-Driven Education

Educators use the BrainStation Learning Portal to architect a complete learning solution, gauging students’ comprehension and providing resources and support based on their individual results.

Guidance & Accountability

You’re a part of a digital classroom, paired up with classmates for projects and engaging with Educators in real-time creating a level of accountability ensuring you will get the most out of the course.

Hands-on Projects

BrainStation Online course projects are designed to provide you with hands-on experience and opportunites to apply what you’re learning to real-world scenarios.

What You'll Learn

Students will begin the course with a review of programming fundamentals in Python and move on to creating simple programs for basic statistical methods. Once students have a competent grasp of programming, they will move onto more advanced data structures and models. By the end of the course, students will have the knowledge, tools and resources needed to collect, analyze and communicate data effectively. Students are recommended to have a working knowledge of at least high school level statistics and an understanding of programming fundamentals is encouraged.

  • Programming Learn basic programming concepts using Python.
  • Data Management Import, sanitize, and process large datasets.
  • Analysis Collect, process, and extract information from data.
  • Modeling Write programs to find patterns in data.
  • Classification Sort and group data by common features.
  • Resources Learn where to find data sets and resources for study.
  • Programming Learn basic programming concepts using Python.
  • Data Management Import, sanitize, and process large datasets.

Engaging and Collaborative Online Learning

What Makes a BrainStation Online Part-Time Course Different?

Smart peers and face-to-face collaboration create an unparalleled sense of community.

We’re constantly optimizing for student experience and curriculum quality.

We have dedicated facilitators for our Online Campus who focus on ensuring quality.

Why a Classroom instead of Self-Paced?
The answer is simple - BrainStation focuses on student outcomes and learning goals.

Is This Course For Me?

Today, Data Scientists play an integral role in helping companies both big and small predict industry trends, launch new products, and innovate based on consumer needs. Data Science is all about extracting insights from data to drive decision making, and is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing and in-demand disciplines in technology today. It requires statistical analysis and programming fundamentals, two core skills that allow Data Scientists to make predictive decisions derived from large data sets. If you think of any major data-driven tech company - Amazon, Netflix, Google - the work of Data Scientists is crucial to their customer experience and success.

This course introduces students to statistical analysis using Python and gradually builds into learning and applying programmed models that can derive insights from common data sets such as CSV’s and Databases. By the end of this course students will have an understanding of how to import CSV’s of data into a Python environment and perform analysis. Additionally, students will learn more about the online Data Science communities and how people share and study data collaboratively.

Learning Portal

Goal Setting

Students begin the Data Science course by outlining their course objectives and what they hope to achieve throughout their time learning at BrainStation. This is valuable information for our Educators, who use this data to support students in achieving their goals.

Access to Learning Content

All students enrolled in Data Science will have access to the lecture slides and additional readings outside of the classroom. This allows students to reference their new learnings when working on their final projects, and review Data Science topics and tools to continue applying their newfound skills after graduating.

Feedback

Data Science students are given the opportunity to provide comprehension responses based on how they are digesting the course material. This is useful information for our Educators, who can provide additional resources and support where students need it to ensure they complete the course with a solid understanding of Data Science concepts.

“In the real world, innovation is outpacing education and that's something we’ve recognized at BrainStation. We’re challenging how education is delivered, curated, and published. Our students and Educators benefit from the collaborative tools we’ve developed to help us get content researched, written, and peer reviewed faster than a traditional publishing cycle. We're digital-first in every facet of the phrase and that is something we’re going to continue pushing forward to guarantee our students receive the best education available.”

Jason, Founder & CEO

Mastery Based Learning

Knowledge testing is an essential component to mastering a new skill through our Mastery Based Learning Approach. Quizzes are layered throughout the program content to encourage you to reflect on new material, apply new concepts, and keep previous topics top of mind. Once submitted, our Educators can assess your comprehension of the course material and provide support where needed.
