Our first module introduces the fundamentals of Python for data science. You’ll learn basic Python programming, how to use Jupyter Notebooks, and will be familiarized with popular Python libraries that are used in data science, such as Pandas and NumPy. Additionally, you’ll learn how to use Git and Github as a collaborative version control tool. At the end of this module, you’ll be able to build a basic linear regression model and evaluate the results. Finally, we’ll conclude with a heavy focus on visualizations as a way to convert data to actionable insights.

Module 1 Topics

Variables, Booleans and Conditionals, Lists, Dictionaries, Looping, Functions, Data Cleaning, Pandas, NumPy, Matlotlib/Seaborn for Data Visualization, Git/Github

In this module, you’ll learn about data structures, relational databases, ways to retrieve data, and the fundamentals of SQL for data querying for structured databases, as well as NoSQL (and MongoDB) for non-relational databases. Furthermore, we’ll cover the basics of HTML, XML, and JSON in order to access data from various sources using APls, as well as Web Scraping.

DS_PDP

Module 2 Topics

Data structures, Relational Databases, SQL, Object-Oriented Programming, NoSQL databases, MongoDB, JSON, HTML/XML, Accessing Data Through APIs, CSS Web Scraping

This is a basic module that introduces the fundamentals of probability theory, where you’ll learn about principles like combinations and permutations. You’ll continue with statistical distributions and learn how to create samples with known distributions. By the end of this course, you’ll apply your knowledge by running Monte Carlo simulations and AB tests. 

DS_PDP

Module 3 Topics

Combinatorics, Probability Theory, Statistical Distributions, Bayes Theorem, Naive Bayes Classifier, Sampling Methods, Monte Carlo Simulation, Hypothesis Testing, AB Testing

We’ll cover how and when regression models can be used to transform data into insights. You’ll learn about both linear and logistic regression and the algorithm behind regression models. By the end of this module, you’ll be able to evaluate the results of regression models and extend them to interaction effects and polynomial features. To compare the performance of models built, you’ll dive deeper into model evaluation and the bias-variance trade-off.

 

DS_PDP

Module 4 Topics

Linear Algebra, Linear Regression and extensions, Polynomials, Interaction effects, Logistic regression, Optimization Cost Function, Gradient Descent, Maximum Likelihood Estimation, Time Series Modeling, Regularization and Model Validation

In Module 5 you’ll learn how to build and implement machine learning’s most important techniques and will take your first steps into classification algorithms through supervised learning techniques such as Support Vector Machines and Decision Trees. Additionally, you’ll learn how to build even more robust classifiers using ensemble methods like Bagged and Boosted Trees, as well asRandom Forests. Next, you’ll move onto unsupervised learning techniques such as Clustering, and dimensionality reduction techniques like Principal Component Analysis.

DS_PDP

Module 5 Topics

Distance Metrics, K Nearest Neighbors, Clustering, Decision Trees, Ensemble Methods, Dimensionality Reduction, Pipeline Building, Hyperparameter Tuning, Grid Search, Scikit-Learn

In the final module, you’ll learn how to use regular expressions in Python and how to manage string values, analyze text, and perform sentiment analysis. Additionally, you’ll get an in-depth overview of deep learning techniques, densely connected neural networks for high-performing classification performance, convolutional neural networks for image recognition, and recurrent neural networks for sequence modeling. You’ll also learn about techniques to evaluate performance and to optimize and regularize model performance.

DS_PDP

Module 6 Topics

Neural Networks, Convolutional Neural Networks, Ngrams, POS Tagging, Text Vectorization, Context-Free Grammars, Neural Language Toolkit, Regular Expressions, Word2Vec, Text Classification

In our final project, you’ll work individually to create a large-scale data science and machine learning project. This final project provides an in-depth opportunity for you to demonstrate your learning accomplishments and get a feel for what working on a large-scale data science project is really like. You and your fellow students will each pitch three different ideas and then decide on your final project with your instructors. Instructors advise on projects based on difficulty and feasibility given the time constraints of the course. At the end of the course, you’ll receive a grade based on various factors. Upon project completion, you’ll understand how to construct a project that gathers and builds statistical or machine learning models to deliver insights and communicate findings through data visualisation and storytelling techniques.

FAQ

You have questions; we have answers

  • How can I apply to scholarships for the in-person program?

    All scholarships to our in-person program are granted after a student is admitted. Scholarships are granted on a need and merit basis, with preference given to underrepresented minorities in tech, including women and military veterans. If you feel that describes you, you can share your story with us on the scholarship application once you are admitted into the program.

  • I was admitted to a cohort but can’t start until next month, can I defer my enrollment?

    We recognize that sometimes “life happens” and that students who have been admitted to one class may need to defer and start with us at a later date. Students may defer up to three start dates beyond the class to which they are admitted. If you must defer farther out than that, we may ask you to repeat some or all of the admissions process to ensure your readiness for the later start date. Students may defer only once without reapplying.

  • I wasn’t admitted the first time around, can I re-apply?

    Flatiron School’s application process is rigorous, and sometimes students who don’t get accepted the first time around are able to ‘study up’ and get accepted the second time around. As such, students are invited to re-apply after three months have passed from initial decision. Students are permitted a total of three application attempts, so re-applicants are advised to use that time building their skills (both professional and technical) and to submit a second application that is materially different from the first one, showcasing your hard work and improvements over that time.

  • Is there a deadline by which to apply?

    Admissions are conducted on a rolling basis, so we continue to accept new applications until the course is filled. Therefore, there is no deadline to apply by – though the sooner you get your application in, the better we are able to prioritize it. Because our classes fill up well in advance of the start date, we recommend applying at least 8 weeks before your desired course date. This allows us 2-3 weeks to conduct the application process and accounts for time to complete the mandatory 100 hours of pre-work, which most students report takes at least 3 weeks.
