Specialization Track 2 - Data Science

INTRODUCTION

IT companies at the forefront of technology have been changing their hiring and training policies drastically in the last five years, and Maxim Nyansa has obtained excellent results helping its trainees follow a similar approach.

These new programmes in principle run full time for a 3 month’s period. After the programme trainees have one or more projects they have worked on to show to future employers on a GITHUB repository.

Every specialization track has the objective to help you as a graduate with a Bachelor Degree in Computer Science to prepare for your first job in ICT. In addition to our general professionalism programme, where you are being trained in general and soft skills, these tracks help you set your first steps in a fast changing area of expertise.

You work daily with the technology that is currently being used in the industry worldwide. You top up your academic skills with practical knowledge. You buil your portfolio of projects on a GITHUB repository that you can show to future employers. You add international certificates to your CV. We will assist and coach you on a personal level and introduce you to IT companies in our network.
