What to Expect from DC's Data Analytics Bootcamp

Allow us to introduce Data Analytics, our fourth bootcamp! The 16-week, full-time program is designed to help students prepare to pursue an entry level role in data analytics. Our curriculum includes hands-on exercises, tools, and projects crafted to reflect what employers need in the workplace today and is designed for students with no prior data analytics experience.

The program is fully online and can be completed from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. We live-stream classes daily, combining the flexibility of online learning with the interactivity of classroom instruction. In addition, DigitalCrafts students have access to a WeWork All-Access membership so they have access to comfortable coworking spaces in their respective cities.

What Is Data Analytics?

Data Analytics is the processing of raw data to find trends and answer questions. Data analysts collect, clean, and interpret large amounts of data and many companies rely on data analytics to analyze business information and forecast trends. Mathematician and Statistician-related roles are projected to grow at 33% from 2020-2030, per the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Data Analysts are the ultimate detectives, ping deep into data to seek out patterns and trends and translate them into a complete picture. They draw conclusions based on evidence, find correlations between seemingly unrelated data, can help predict outcomes, and question everything. Students who love numbers, problem-solving, and are naturally curious may be a good fit for our data analytics bootcamp.

Typical roles or job titles to pursue after graduation may include Application Programmer Analyst, Computer Programmer, Data Analyst, Business Intelligence Analyst, and Clinical Data Manager.**
