The Opportunity

  • The reason why we need Data Science is the ability to process and interpret data.
  • This enables companies to make informed decisions around growth, optimization, and performance.
  • Data Science empowers better business decision-making through interpreting, modelling, and deployment.
  • This helps in visualizing data that is understandable for business stakeholders to build future roadmaps and trajectories.
  • Implementing Data Science for businesses is now a mandate for any business looking to grow.

Data Science is a deep study of any amount of data, which involves extracting meaningful insights from raw, structured, and unstructured data that is processed using scientific methods, different technologies, and algorithms.

  • It is one of the most sought after skills in all industries globally.
  • It is an employable skill.
  • 80% of students get employment within the first year after completing their studies.
  • After only one year of employment as a Data Scientist a salary of R450k p/y is not uncommon.
  • As a Data Scientist, you are not bound to work for a specific business.
  • One of the key rewards is that you get to work with the latest technology so you get to work in your own field of expertise (something that interests you).
  • Data Science is a wide career. A professional in this field can choose multiple paths in industries like Medical, Insurance, Financial, Agriculture, Education, to name only a few.
  • You can work in the capacity as a free lance consultant (advisory service), a permanent employee as a Data Scientist, as a trainer in Data Science/Data Analytics, a Tutor/Coach/Mentor for junior Data Scientists, as a Curriculum Developer for Data Science courses, etc.

At SIGNIFY we value aptitude and attitude – demonstrate those and you’re sure to thrive in our Academy. Whilst there are some specific pre-requisites for our full qualification, (these can be found on the course pages in the Pre-requisites box), for the most part we don’t have specific educational or experience pre-requisites.
