Master the skill for data science

Web scraping

Information from the Internet are stored in different types of websites and formats. This course will use Python to cover a variety of web scraping methods, so that students can find relevant data in different environments. The course will demonstrate private and open data such as supermarkets, forums and COVID-19 and turn those into machine-readable formats for further analysis.

Getting Started with Data Science Tools

When dealing with large amounts of data, traditional tools such as Excel are no longer sufficient and maintenance costs are high. This course will teach commonly used tools in Python (pandas, seaborn, numpy) and demonstrate how to effectively handle common data wrangling once the data has been collected.

FAQs

I don’t have any programming background. How can I choose the right courses in Flex?If you just kickstart your programming journey, we recommend you to take Python or JavaScript fundamental courses. Then based on your personal needs & interests, you can choose the different case studies’ courses. Our course consultant is willing to provide you a tailored-made recommendation.
I would like to apply AI and programming in real life and work space. Is Flex course suitable for me ?Absolutely. Tecky Flex is designed with the objective of allowing students to apply the AI and programming knowledge they have learned in real life situations. Unlike other counterparts in the market, Tecky Flex allows students to choose the courses that interest them the most to build a personalized learning experience.
I want to become a Data Scientist. Can I become one after after finishing the Flex Courses?Data Scientist is a multi-disciplinary role which requires knowledge from multiple aspects. Flex courses provides students with Data science knowledge. It would also depend on work space experience of the students. We recommend studying Python and Big Data first. After your have mastered the basic skills, you may promote to Tecky Pro Data Science and Machine Learning course.
I want to become a software engineer . Can I become one after finishing the Flex Courses?Becoming a professional software engineer requires lots of training and practicing which a part-time course like Tecky Flex can hardly provide the necessary environment . We strongly recommend you should consider the Full-time Tecky's MicroMaster in AI and Programming instead if you are looking for a career switch. The 16-week MicroMaster is crafted carefully with the goal of enabling students to switch to a tech career .
Can I get a certificate of achievement upon completion?Yes, we will issue the certificate of achievement based on the progress of your studies.
Should I pick up JavaScript or Python?JavaScript is more suitable for creating websites and applications. Python is more suitable for data science, engineering and analytics. If you would like to work on a mobile application, you may pick either one as the introductory language and learn Dart (which is a harder programming language) to use Flutter to make a cross-platform mobile app.
