It was time for me to deep dive into the new world of data science and I made a perfect choice! The Data Science certificate program had very well-structured content, and the instructors were not only subject matter experts, but also had deep industry knowledge. The individual and group assignments were relevant, and I have been able to show some of those unique data science use cases in my portfolio.
