Our instructors

One of our biggest assets is our instructors. Besides our internal Data Science team, we always bring in selected external experts from industry. These external instructors keep us in constant contact with trends and requirements in industry and allow us, as well as yourself, to build a well-established network. We really care about selecting instructors with outstanding didactic skills and constantly improving our teaching based on your feedback. Have a look at our impressive team of instructors and their diverse backgrounds.


Our capstone projects

What clearly sets us apart from other Bootcamps is that we organize REAL projects with REAL companies. We do not rest when it comes to finding companies who can provide exciting projects for you and your course mates. This gives your portfolio a big push, and you wouldn't be our first student who might get hired by one of these companies after the project. Also, we are not shy! If you are interested in a particular company, we are very happy to contact them to see whether we can start a project together.
