Please RSVP at

Length of the course: 35hours

Date: April 27th, May 4th, 11th, 18th(four Sundays)

Time: 10:00am-5:30pm

Course Overview: 

NYC Data Science Academy is now offering an R Intensive Intermediate course: a five week course designed around students who have taken NYC Data Science Academy’s R Beginner course or for those who already have a firm skill set and understanding of R. 

Project Demo Day and Certificates: 

From data mining to time series models, the course ends with a demonstration of a project of your choice on Project Demo Day. On Demo Day you will showcase a project of your choosing, utilizing the tools and skill sets taught to you throughout this course. We encourage you to be creative! Students have chosen projects ranging from digital marketing simulation to finding the relation between people using natural language processing. The possibilities are nearly endless! All the instructors  will help you to implement your own project.

After the successful completion of the course, you will qualify for one of three certificates: Extraordinary Standing , Honorable Graduation , and Active Participation. Certificates are awarded according to your understanding, skill, and participation.

Cost: $2100

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
