Summer Data Science Job Training for UCSD Economics Students

Signal Data Science is an 8 week intensive training program that prepares students with strong quantitative skills for industry jobs as data scientists. We teach

  • Programming in R
  • Scraping and cleaning data
  • Exploring and analyzing data using statistics
  • Predictive modeling
  • Presenting findings
  • Interviewing skills

We offer a pair programming-focused curriculum, facilitating students to learn from each other’s strengths. We cover everything from basic linear regression to advanced, industry-relevant methods like gradient boosting and dimensionality reduction. You’ll learn from a combination of lectures, short knowledge-reinforcement problems, and longer, more open-ended assignments focusing on analyzing real datasets.

Why and Who
Data science is a rapidly growing and lucrative field. Students with strong quantitative backgrounds have often developed most of the analytical skills needed, and would be highly sought in industry if they developed the programming, predictive modeling and interviewing skills needed. We bridge the gap.

When and Where
This summer cohort runs from July 5th – August 26th in Berkeley, CA.
