UCF to Launch 1st Data Analytics and Visualization Boot Camp

UCF Continuing Education's Data Analytics and Visualization Boot Camp gives graduates a competitive advantage in the big data job market.

University of Central Florida Continuing Education, in partnership with Trilogy Education, will launch its first Data Analytics and Visualization Boot Camp on Sept. 11. The program provides the practical and technical skills needed to solve complex data analytics and visualization problems. Trilogy Education works with universities across the nation including University of California at Berkley, University of Texas at Austin, Georgia Tech, Northwestern and Rutgers to provide educational programs.

The boot camp is a fast-paced, dynamic program covering specialized skills including Python, JavaScript, Social Media Mining, SQL, Tableau and Machine Learning in an immersive and collaborative classroom experience. With these tools, graduates gain a competitive advantage in the job market for positions in rapidly expanding data-intensive industries such as health care, media, government and others.

Designed to support working professionals, the part-time course will be taught during evenings and weekends at the UCF Sanford/Lake Mary campus of Seminole State College.

“This program increases opportunities for the Central Florida workforce,” says Todd Freece, executive director of UCF Continuing Education.  “The demand for data analytic skills is skyrocketing and programs like this help grow our local talent to meet the needs of businesses expanding in our area.”

Throughout the course, students will build a comprehensive portfolio of projects showcasing mastery of modeling, forecasting and other practical skills that are desirable in this fast-growing field. The boot camp will also offer career-planning support, resume assistance, portfolio reviews and technical interview training.

Students may qualify for private loans and other education funding up to the full cost of registration. UCF alumni are eligible for reduced tuition.
