Hero Vired, an online learning platform offering industry-oriented online courses with access to top global universities, has collaborated with the University of Chicago to launch a one-of-its-kind Advanced Certification Programme in Data Science and Analytics. The programme is designed especially for ambitious coders and programmers who want to pursue a career in data science.
According to an official statement, the programme is curated for mid-level working professionals to accelerate their career trajectory. It aims for students to embrace skills pertinent to the data science domain. This ten-and-a-half-month, part-time program includes 228 hours of live sessions. The learners will get deep experience in the core data science tools, techniques, and methodologies industries use to make critical decisions.
The partnership aims to provide comprehensive career services, including placement assistance. As part of this programme, there will be instructor-led classes by University of Chicago instructors, an orientation session with the University instructors and access to UChicago content for six months post-completion.
