Launching the first Data Science Bootcamp in Europe

We are so happy to launch the first European  data science bootcamp

It is so nice to write this page on the launch of the first European data science bootcamp that will start this summer in Brussels. This initiative will boost the digital transformation effort of each company by allowing them to improve their data skills either by recruiting trainees and young graduates or transforming existing BI teams to become experienced business data scientists.

Intense 5+12 weeks approach to focus on practical directly applicable business cases.

The content of this bootcamp originated from the Data Science Community. Following the advice of our academic,  innovation and training partners we have decided to offer a unique hands-on 5 + 12 weeks approach.

  1. We call the first 5 weeks the Summer Camp (starts Aug 16th).  The participants work onsite or remote on e-learning MOOCs from DataCamp to demonstrate their ability to code in Python, R, SAS, SQL and to master statistical principles. During this period experts put all their energy into coaching the candidates in keeping up the pace and finishing the exercises. All the activities take place in our training centre located in the European Data Innovation Hub.
    -> If you are a young graduate you can expect to be contacted by tier one companies who will offer you a job or traineeship that will start with the participation to the datascience bootcamp.
  2. The European Data Science Bootcamp starts September 19thDuring a 12 week period – every Monday and Tuesday – participants will work on 15 different business cases presented by business experts from different industries and covering diverse business areas. Each Friday, the future data scientists will gather to work on their own business case, with coaching by our data experts to achieve an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) at the conclusion of the bootcamp.

Delivering strong experienced business data science professionals after an intense semester of hands-on business cases.

Companies are invited to reserve seats for their own existing staff or for the young graduates who have expressed interest in following the bootcamp.

 Please reserve your seat(s) now as, this bootcamp is limited to 15 participants.
