Data Science and Analytics Bootcamp

Professional Development Course

In partnership with HackerU, the College of Professional and International Education (CPIE) at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) offers a Data Science and Analytics Bootcamp with the goal of transforming learners with little or no experience into ready-to-hire data scientists in less than one year. This comprehensive curriculum teaches the most up-to-date skills and hands-on experience that employers look for in qualified data professionals, with instructors who are leading professionals in the industry.

Students utilize cutting-edge materials to engage in project-based learning, practicing real-world scenarios and developing the critical thinking necessary to succeed in the data science and analytics field. The immersive learning environment is designed for learners with a non-technical background to gain hands-on experience that can qualify them for entry-level positions.

No previous experience in tech is necessary. Students can start from scratch, learn the basics, and then progress to in-depth training topics. At the end of each program, HackerU provides comprehensive Career Services for assistance in job and internship placements.
