Data Scientist is one of the hottest professions. IBM predicts the demand for Data Scientists will rise by 28% by 2020. Simplilearn's Data Scientist certification Master’s program co-developed with IBM encourages you to master skills including statistics, hypothesis testing, data mining, clustering, decision trees, linear and logistic regression, data wrangling, data visualization, regression models, Hadoop, Spark, PROC SQL, SAS Macros, recommendation engine, supervised, and unsupervised learning and more.

This Data Scientist certification Master’s program covers extensive Data Science training, combining online instructor-led classes and self-paced learning co-developed with IBM. This certification program concludes with a capstone project designed to reinforce the learning by building a real industry product encompassing all the key aspects learned throughout the program. The skills focused on in this program will help prepare you for the role of a Data Scientist.

A Data scientist is the top ranking professional in any analytics organization. Glassdoor ranks Data Scientists first in the 25 Best Jobs for 2019. In today’s market, Data Scientists are scarce and in demand. As a Data Scientist, you are required to understand the business problem, design a data analysis strategy, collect and format the required data, apply algorithms or techniques using the correct tools, and make recommendations backed by data.

  1. Gain an in-depth understanding of data structure and data manipulation
  2. Understand and use linear and non-linear regression models and classification techniques for data analysis
  3. Obtain an in-depth understanding of supervised and unsupervised learning models such as linear regression, logistic regression, clustering, dimensionality reduction, K-NN, and pipeline
  4. Perform scientific and technical computing using the SciPy package and its sub-packages such as Integrate, Optimize, Statistics, IO, and Weave
  5. Gain expertise in mathematical computing using the NumPy and Scikit-Learn packages
  6. Understand the different components of the Hadoop ecosystem
  7. Learn to work with HBase, its architecture, and data storage, learning the difference between HBase and RDBMS, and use Hive and Impala for partitioning
  8. Understand MapReduce and its characteristics, plus learn how to ingest data using Sqoop and Flume
  9. Master the concepts of recommendation engine and time series modeling and gain practical mastery over principles, algorithms, and applications of machine learning
  10. Learn to analyze data using Tableau and become proficient in building interactive dashboards

This Data Scientist certification Master's program includes 15+ real-life, industry-based projects on different domains to help you master concepts of Data Science and Big Data. A few of the projects that you will be working on are mentioned below:

Capstone Project:
Description: You will go through dedicated mentor classes in order to create a high-quality industry project, solving a real-world problem leveraging the skills and technologies learned throughout the program. The capstone project will cover all the key aspects of data extraction, cleaning, and visualization to model building and tuning. You also get the option of choosing the domain/industry dataset you want to work on from the options available.

After successful submission of the project, you will be awarded a capstone certificate that can be showcased to potential employers as a testament to your learning.
