The self-paced online course includes monthly intakes giving you the opportunity to decide when you want to start the programme on a schedule that suits you.
The SPOC mode is designed for working individuals who cannot afford to suspend their jobs for six months but still show a strong commitment to acquire new skills and further their careers. Aspiring Data Scientists and Data Engineers will be able to acquire advanced competencies and make strategic data-driven decisions.
A personalised learning experience
At the beginning of your educational journey with DSTI, you will have an interview with our student care and direction of studies staff to help you design your own path according to your goals, constraints and questions, including choosing between “Data Science” and “Data Engineering”. The latter should never be a point of stress, as the two programmes have got a common set of courses, hence the specialisation choice can be made after the start of your journey.
1. The learning plan is constructed and followed according to courses’ pre-requisite dependencies.
2. SPOC students follow one course at a time from their learning plan.
3. The next course is unlocked by submission of the current course assessment.
The learning plan is reviewed every month by the Student Care staff and the Direction of Studies should important adjustments be needed.
