Data Science courses launched in July 2015 will meet UK demand for data scientists and bring programs abroad
Galvanize.com, a leader in industry-focused education, announced its expansion internationally by launching data science courses at Campus London, Google’s startup and entrepreneur hub in East London, UK.
There are more that 40,000 members, of Google’s Campus London, a thriving community where anyone can build their startup and attend programs to learn technical and entrepreneurial skills. Galvanize operates five campuses (located in San Francisco, Seattle, Denver and Boulder), and these data science courses at Google’s Campus London represent the first time the company has launched a program outside of the US.
“We have a longstanding partnership with Google and Google for Entrepreneurs that has allowed us to enrich our campuses and curriculum with industry expertise, connections and mentorship,” stated Jim Deters, CEO and co-founder of Galvanize. “Bringing our educational offerings to Campus London with this initial program is a natural extension of our partnership and leverages both organisations’ commitment to providing skills and access to a global community of entrepreneurs.”
London being an emerging hub for data science, has a permanent demand for data scientists in the UK that has increased 350 percent in the past five years ( with an average salary of £60,0001). Company demand for data-literate talent and employee demand for data science skills make Campus London the ideal place for Galvanize to launch these programs.
“As the UK’s tech industry continues to grow we see a lot of demand for data-savvy talent from both the startup community and the established tech players,” said Sarah Drinkwater, Head of Campus London. “By bringing the Galvanize courses to Campus London, we are adding to our already established learning programs, including Campus for Mums, which aims to teach people how to turn their ideas into thriving companies.”
Galvanize’s data science courses at Campus London will cover a wide range of topics, from fundamentals of data science, Python for data analysis, to applied machine learning, and many more.
Courses will be suited for beginners and experienced data scientists, with commitments spanning full-day intensives to nights and weekends. Galvanize will be hosting a series of free introductory workshops and open house events with pre-eminent data scientists for anyone interested in learning more about the emerging field of data science.
