Data Science by R Programming(Intensiv­e Intermediate level, Four Sundays) R004

Length of Time:  35 hours

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

Time: 10:00am-5:30pm

Extra teaching: 1 hour video/ week * 5 weeks

Instructor :

Vivian Zhang, CTO@Supstat Inc, Founder of NYC Data Science Academy


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 skillset 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.

    Hi Vivian,

    When is the next offering of this course, and is the beginner level R003 class a good enough prerequisite for this one?

    • Shangxuan Vivian Z.

      Jiten, you have all the pre-requisite now. :) Hope to have you in intermediate class.
