The award winning, South West-based coding training provider iO Academy is launching a new course in data science and machine learning. Taking place in May 2022, this online course has been designed for software developers of all levels, from bootcamp graduates to senior engineers.

With data science and machine learning set to become the biggest in-demand skill set in the careers market over the next five years, the sector is expected to be worth £87 billion by 2027. An ever-increasing demand for data insights to develop commercial applications, to underpin academic research and to fuel product innovation means there is a fantastic opportunity for software developers to advance their careers in this field.

Throughout iO Academy’s 12 week part time course, students will learn all the practical skills needed to start a successful career in data science and machine learning, working with genuine data sets and applying them to real-world scenarios. The curriculum is practically driven, with real exercises throughout, and is led by an industry expert trainer.

The fully remote, online course is designed to help developers and others working in tech progress their skills into data science and machine learning. Ideal for software developers of all levels, from bootcamp graduates to senior engineers. The course starts with a quick intro to Python, before going in-depth with statistics, data cleaning and analysis, machine learning and even some neural nets.

iO Academy lead, Mike Oram said, “We’re really excited to launch this course in data science and machine learning. It’s a fantastic opportunity for developers to take practical steps towards a career in an industry that is only going to grow. We can’t wait to meet the students in May.”
