Modeling for Insights (120 hours): this module focuses on developing a well-rounded technical foundation which includes hands-on Microsoft Excel, Structured Query Language (SQL), and communications through Analysis and Visualization.

  1. Data Modeling Context & Applied Excel (40 hours)
  2. Structured Query Language (SQL) Queries
  3. Data Analysis and Visualization with Power BI

Modeling for Prediction (120 hours): Automation is the significant aspect of this module with emphasis on Data Modeling using real-world examples that helps look at the reports in a different way i.e., with the correct model, the correct answer is always a simpler one.

  1. Data Modeling with DAX (Data Analysis Expressions)
  2. Data Preparation & Data Shaping with Power Query
  3. Enterprise Business Process Automation with Power Automate

Scaling for Analytics (120 hours): Data Engineering Essentials is the focus here - Python, Machine Learning and Spark SQL. Scaling Analytics through the Auto ML - apply regression and classification techniques to power business forecasts and drive decision-making and strategy,

  1. Python for Data Analysis
  2. Machine Learning with Azure ML
  3. Data Engineering with Spark SQL

Capstone Project (40 hours): This module serves as the capstone for the 9 weeks of learning through integration of Data Science skills through a project focused on real-world open data. The learner may choose to work alone but preferably in a group of 2-3. In addition, support from staff is provided to tailor the data science process steps to develop a minimum viable data product. A learner is assessed on their problem hypothesis, statistical model, insights delivered through use of the model, flexibility of the model. The goal of this this module is to help a learner to develop an effective LinkedIn Profile, showcase project portfolio, prepare for interviews by revisiting their capstone problem, and share capstone project results.
