Work with real data sets. Provide actionable insights. Solve real world problems. These’ll certainly fit well in your data science portfolio.
For the ones who’ve been thinking about embarking on your data science quest either to develop your data senses or spruce up your portfolio, there really hasn’t been a better time than now, in the middle of this Covid-19 crisis, to begin.
Times like this are when the exemplary set themselves apart from the typical, especially when it comes to our fast-paced field, where keeping one’s skills relevant and updated is a must.
And when it comes to data science, we at UpLevel believe that there’s no more efficient way to go about it than by working on an actual project.
Only by dealing with real-life data sets (not those squeaky clean ones!), deriving actionable insights from them and communicating them to your team members will you develop the skills important in the workforce and ultimately be chiseled into a gem that companies highly seek after.
*Courses are running as usual - our Project-Based Learning Course is conducted entirely online so you'll still be able to participle in light of the current crisis.
Level Up These Essential Hard and Soft Skills That
Are a Must for Data Scientists
Pick up these five highly underrated and often inadequately covered hard skills:

A Neat Addition to Your CV
Actions speak louder than words. And projects are a series of actions intertwined together.
Others will only be able to verbalise that they know this and that.
With a completed project in your hands, you’ll be able to show hiring managers your ability to execute a project from start to finish, be it in collecting data, to coming up with actionable insights, to data modelling and visualisation.
This course is especially for
… students in university or coders currently in the workforce who are already fairly proficient in Python but are looking to go take their data science skills to a next level with a real-life data science project.

More Why’s About Our Project-Based Learning Course
Meet Your Trainer
“In our UpLevel projects, we encourage our learners to think through their projects like a data scientist, and we foster a strong sense of independence and confidence in turning data into insights.
I’m very much into project-based learning as I believe it gives my students practical experience. It’s like learning a new (spoken) language. The theory learnt in classroom-based lessons will only bring one so far. Project-based learning is akin to having a language exchange buddy, who will actually practice conversing with you.”

Project Linkedin Analysis
“I had a great experience doing this project! I understand data science a little more now and picked up some new tricks and tools such as Matplotlib and scikit-learn, along the way. Even though I’m doing deep-learning for my internship now, I’ve not actually touched either one of those libraries. So now I know how to visualise data and do some basic statistics-based machine learning (SVM).
Jackie was very helpful and always ready to answer my questions. In fact, I’ve been so inspired and motivated by this project that I’ve started my own analysis on Singapore transportation!
My greatest takeaway from this project, however, is actually how to think like a data analyst. I realised it’s so much easier to generate insights by first thinking about the kinds of questions you want to answer.”
Project G20 Journalism
“The aim of the project was to pick up skills related to working with APIs, data cleaning, data visualisation and data analysis through sentiment analysis. The project focused on working with Python 3, Pandas and the Natural Language Toolkit.
Alton and I split up the work and learnt from each other, picking up good programming habits and the importance of documenting code. Jackie was extremely helpful in providing us with tips and pointing us towards resources.
Although there is undoubtedly much more to learn, Jackie’s assistance was catalytic in helping us move forward with the project throughout the different stages, pointing out our coding errors and encouraging us on. Thanks Jackie!”

Project Reddit vs. EDMW
“Working on the forum project with Jackie was a worthwhile and gratifying experience. I learnt how to code with Python at [a coding school] but did not really know what to do with that knowledge.
This was my first real project using the coding skills I had learnt previously. I think it is a great way to bridge the gap between knowing how to code and actually doing something with it, because there is a scope given to us to guide us. I now have a clearer idea of how real data analysis projects might be in the workplace.
Jackie was also a great mentor. He was very knowledgeable, guiding us along the way and providing assistance whenever we reached a roadblock.”

Kudos to you for wanting to embark on your data science journey. Sadly, we only work with coders who already are proficient in Python with the goal of transforming them from good to great.
While it’s a fully-scoped project (we’ll be handling most of the planning, saving you prep time and allowing you to focus on what matters - the execution), ensure you free up your schedule in the next 4 - 6 weeks so you can productively work on the project.
