The program focuses on four modules: Foundations of Python Programming, Data Manipulation and Management, Statistics and Computational Modeling and Data Visualization.
The modules are led by four instructors who work full-time in the data science field.
Students who complete all four modules receive a certificate of Fundamentals of Data Science.
For eligable students, the Nebraska CONNECT Grant will fund tuition 100%. The CONNECT grant provides workforce training in the IT field for unemployed and underemployed individuals.
The next cohort begins January 23. According to Watson, 6 of 10 slots have already been filled for the program. If you are interested in applying for the program, visit the course page at Interface Web School.
