Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between data science and data analytics?
Data Scientists, generally speaking, have more technical knowledge and expertise than Data Analysts. Because of this, data science positions are typically more senior in nature compared to roles that involve data analysis skills.
In BrainStation’s latest Digital Skills Survey, respondents working in data science said the objective of their work was the optimization of an existing platform, product or system (45 percent), or the development of new ones (42 percent). Unpacking their responses, we found that the work of “optimizing existing solutions” tends to fall to Business Analysts and Data Analysts, while the higher-order work of “developing new solutions” more often falls to Researchers and Data Scientists. What this suggests is that Data Scientists, who typically have more experience and more specialized expertise, are more likely to be involved in decision-making at a leadership level.
Will I earn a data science diploma from this bootcamp?
Yes, when you complete the Data Science program, you will earn a BrainStation Data Science Diploma, which can boost your LinkedIn profile and resume, helping you stand out in the job market when starting a new career in data science.
