Description

REGENERATION ACADEMY FOR DIGITAL ACCELERATION | DATA SCIENCE LAB – POWERED BY TITAN

ReGeneration Academy for Digital Acceleration | Data Science Lab – Powered by TITAN is an ideal re-training, training and up-skilling program, as you will gain skills in the fields of Software Engineering / Programming / Data Analysis / Data Science and Business Intelligence/ Analytics, which will enhance your resume for the next steps of your career.

In particular, as highlighted by a number of sources, such as Forbes (based on a study by Glassdoor), the data scientist profession is ranked among the best jobs in the world, while, according to research, the use and importance of business intelligence in modern entrepreneurship continues to grow. In addition, a number of surveys and studies, such as GitHub‘s analysis, consider Python as top programming language, with high demand today and in the future.

It is an intensive hands-on training program on basic and advanced Data Science principles, combined with  the necessary knowledge of Business Intelligence, that has been developed by ReGeneration and TITAN, with Code.Hub as a training partner, and the academic guidance and support of Athens Tech College. The program lasts 100 hours, it runs for six weeks and it includes two special training & coding all-day events, one of which will take place at the TITAN factory in Kamari, Viotia.

Why to participate:

Data science and Business Intelligence aspects will be covered in details!

During the program, the participants will ‘’unlock’’ up-to-date techniques and new tools for data collection, storage, transformation, use, visualization and data acquisition, acquiring the skills needed to meet the growing need of the modern business world for data scientists, as well as the important demand for specialized scientists that combine hands-on experience in data-related industry fields and understanding of the theoretical and practical background of Business Intelligence (BI) used for the interpretation of data and the support of the decision making process.

Through topics such as data transformation and visualization, as well as introduction to machine learning and artificial intelligence, participants will come up with fundamental and catalytic concepts in the field of management, analysis and use of data for the acquisition of knowledge, as these methods are applied in the decision-making process. The use of data is now inextricably linked to the operation of businesses and a necessary prerequisite for effective data-driven decision-making.

The program is based on hands-on experience that participants will gain by using Python and Data Stores in the field of Data Science.
