Dive into the world of Data Science, data modeling, machine learning, and more in this intermediate Deep Dive Coding Bootcamp. You will learn to solve critical business problems within your domain of expertise with new skills in Python programming, modeling, and data analysis. Students will work on labs and projects to build and maintain data models. Graduates will be able to design and implement a real-world model producing actionable information.
Data science and AI skills have been identified by the World Economic Forum as an emerging prospect in the future of work, with the number of job opportunities in this field expected to grow by 450,000 from 2020-2022. Glassdoor estimates that Data Scientists are well compensated, with an average salary in Albuquerque of $75-$125K, and up to $140K nationwide.

We’ll teach you the languages, tools, and techniques you’ll be using as a data scientists in the real world. This bootcamp focuses on…
It’s expected that our students use their own laptop in this bootcamp, with an operating system of Windows 10OS or Mac 10.13 or above. Webcams and microphones are required if not built into the laptop. Internet access with a minimum of 3.8Mpbs/3.0Mbps (up/down) is also required. Limited loaners are available. Contact us for questions about loaners or whether your computer meets our minimum specs.
Robert Citek is our Data Science instructor. You can often find him wondering about two questions: "How does this thing work?" and "How can we speed up the process of discovering how things work?" As a child, he tried to answer those questions by taking apart household items and putting them back together... mostly. His curiosity led him to study microbiology and biochemistry, trying to figure out how things work even when you cannot see or touch them. When he discovered computers and programming, he realized he could not only crunch through the data much faster than ever before, but could also create simulations of scenarios that were too time consuming in real life. Over the years, he has modified processes to speed up protein production by thirty fold, designed devices that decreased the turn around time of diagnostic assays by seventy fold, and created genomics pipelines in the cloud that provided results in hours instead of months. Currently, he is having fun playing with virtual environments in the cloud and learning new programming languages, both with the hope of using them to speed up that discovery process. In his spare time, you can find him walking his foster dog, volunteering for local non-profits, cooking or baking with his wife and friends, or out on the trails exploring the beautiful outdoors. And, of course, taking things apart and putting them back together... mostly.
After you have completed this bootcamp, you will receive a certificate of completion, not a degree. You can receive Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) from Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) if you do decide to later pursue a degree, getting free credit for classes that are similar to what you learned in the bootcamp. Learn more about non-credit to credit CPL at CNM.
