The Data Science Career Track is a 500-600 hour course. Most students complete the course in 6 months, working 15-20 hours per week.
You should expect to take the full 6 months, but can aim to complete in less time if you are: highly proficient in Python and Statistics; are ready to devote more time per week to complete the curriculum materials, and are driven and disciplined with managing your study schedule.
We work with industry experts to determine the most relevant data science topics, and find the best resources on each topic (e.g. videos, tutorials, lectures).

Note that many of the videos and resources in the curriculum are not created in-house by us. Instead, we find and curate the best resources available on the subject. Think of us as a college professor who creates a syllabus by combining the best textbook chapters, articles, papers, and projects (instead of teaching from only her own textbook).

We believe the curated curriculum is our unique strength. By standing on the shoulders of giants, we’re able to update the curriculum frequently, and always teach the latest tools and technologies.
Once you complete your first capstone project, you will have the option to choose a specialization. Specializations are areas of focus that allow you to adapt your learning experience to a particular career path. You can choose one of three tracks that align with your career goals and area of interest: The Generalist Track: Advanced Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, or Deep Learning.

Based on your choice, you will focus on that particular specialization and focus your second capstone project around that topic.
You’ll have support from:
  • Your mentor: a data science expert who will provide weekly 1:1 guidance and accountability in a 45-minute video call at a time that works for your busy schedule.
  • Community teaching assistants: to give you dedicated help when you’re stuck, and detailed feedback on each project.
  • Career coaches: to help you with resume reviews, mock interviews, job search strategy etc.
  • Springboard student advisors: to answer questions, discuss goals, and provide tips and support on any aspect of the program.
  • And finally, your classmates: with whom you can form study groups, get feedback, and work on projects together!
We will provide certificates of completion to all the participants who successfully complete the course and all the projects. We also have integration with LinkedIn, so you can display a verified certificate on your LinkedIn profile.
All our courses take place entirely online. All you need is an Internet connection.
You should have a strong background in probability & statistics and should be comfortable enough in programming to pick up a new language using resources on the web.
Spots are limited and we accept candidates on a rolling basis. We have a multi-step application process. The first step involves a 4-5 minute questionnaire to learn about your prior educational and work experience. Based on your responses, we might ask for additional information -- e.g. a brief phone interview, or a quick coding and statistics challenge - just to make sure the Data Science Career Track is a good fit for you.
Once you complete the course, you'll have lifetime access to your Springboard account, including the online community and office hours. We'll even provide you with an additional six months of access to external resources upon request. Whenever our course development team updates the curriculum, you'll see it too. Lifelong learning guaranteed.
