“I loved the Metis online experience because the teachers did a great job of both furthering our understanding of key concepts, as well as supporting any interests the students had in the wide and deep field of data science. Pull the trigger!”

ANUPAMA GARLA

“The Metis online bootcamp was an engaging and impactful experience. I not only gained new data science skills but had great daily interactions with my fellow online attendees and instructors.”

SALEEM KHAN

“Bottom line: Metis was a great experience from beginning to end. I was part of the first online cohort and it was a seamless experience from interacting with teachers to collaborating with your fellow students and teaching assistants. I think all-in-all this was great value for money but it depends on how focused you are to get the results you want!”

Frequently asked questions

We know everybody learns differently, and like to highlight that bootcamps aren’t for everyone; Likewise, masters programs or self-study might not be for you either. Aside from the differences in length and costs of a masters program, we’ve seen that most masters programs tend to be more theoretical, while Metis has a higher emphasis on the practical application of data science, getting you ready to re-enter the workforce with all the necessary skills. Similarly, self-study can be great for some, but we’ve learned that many students come to us because of the need for a structured learning environment.

The live online bootcamp is held virtually using Zoom. Instruction will be delivered in real time with live simulcast lectures. Students will interact with their instructors, teaching assistants and classmates using Zoom and Slack. Lectures will take place in the main zoom room, and breakout zoom rooms will be used for live online students to collaborate during pair programming exercises and for 1:1s with their instructors and teaching assistants.

Yes, it requires a full-time commitment Monday to Friday.

The bootcamp costs $17,000.

You will need a strong internet connection, a free Zoom account, and a computer. Your computer needs to run OS X and have at least 4GB RAM, 2GHz, and a 100 GB HD. Alternatively, if you are a Windows user and your computer is fairly powerful, you could run a Linux Virtual Machine inside your normal Windows install. This requires some configuration. We strongly recommend students to use a MAC.

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are awarded a Data Science Certificate. They will have completed rigorous training in machine learning, programming in multiple languages (Python, Bash, SQL, PySpark), data wrangling, project design, and communication of results for integration in a business environment.

No, a job is not guaranteed. However, we do guarantee to:

  • Work insanely hard to provide you with a great data science learning experience
  • Introduce you to many hiring partners who are looking to hire data science professionals
  • Provide post-session support and professional development through our careers team

Metis’ more than 1,100 global alumni have diverse educational and professional backgrounds. From finance to technology, academia to marketing, and engineering to healthcare.

If you’d like to enhance your math, python, and overall data science skills prior to applying, we’d recommend considering one of our part-time short courses.
