Life-long Mentor Support
This unique online Internship Programme with live mentoring sessions is designed for those who wish to make a successful career in the field of Data Science. This is not a course, there are no theory classes.
Participants are given increasingly difficult, weekly tasks in the form of unique data science problems using live data sets that they solve under the able guidance of an International Mentor, while working with fellow interns from different countries.
Develop such a level of competency in participants that they can apply for paid freelance opportunities in Data Science and hence, take the first steps towards building a successful career in the field.
This Internship Programme along with the freelance projects would help participants build a strong profile and gain experience that would help them enter the world of Data Science.
1. Live International Mentor Sessions
The International Mentor is an award winning, industry expert who has worked as Lead Data Scientist with prestigious global organisations like GE Research and Microsoft.
Participants receive the following from their Mentor during live weekly sessions:
Regular feedback on work done
Personalised query resolution and guidance
Weekly handouts, video notes, etc to help solve the tasks
This support by the Mentor not only helps participants in successfully completing the weekly tasks but also helps the participants to:
Gain deep understanding of key Data Science concepts and fundamentals
Develop expertise in the area through intensive practice on live data sets
Showcase the portfolio of their work on GitHub
2. Work on Live Datasets
Interns work on unique problems using live datasets from IBM, Amazon, NYSE, Netflix, Google, Lego, Yelp and more.
3. Exclusive Sessions with Industry Experts
In addition, interns will attend exclusive sessions with industry experts from Google, E&Y, Ericsson, JP Morgan and more.
4. Truly Global Exposure & Experience
Work with interns from different countries
Get International Internship Certificate from Sloan Technologies FZCO, UAE
Get Certificate of Achievement from Ureka Education, UK
5. Career Guidance & Post Internship Opportunities
All participants receive personalised career guidance on building a Data Science career. Meritorious, top performing interns may be offered paid roles in the Data Science division of Ureka UK or any of its group companies.
The internship programme is available in two options for the following candidates.
A. 4 weeks – only for those with strong Python skills and intermediate level familiarity with Data Science tools and concepts.
B. 8 weeks – this is the recommended programme for all participants and is available for both:
a. those who have python skills but no Data Science background but yet are serious about making a career in the field.
b. those with no python skills. The first three weeks of the programme are spent in learning Python and the balance five weeks on developing Data Science skills.
By having Python skills, we refer to candidates who have actually done coding in Python and are well versed in it and not those who have just completed a theoretical course.
- Learn about Real-world Machine Learning & the Challenges (look beyond just fit and predict).
- Build Strong Fundamentals - Derive Logistic Regression equation; Understand cross validation; Why is one hot encoding
required? Non-Parametric Models (Trees) vs Parametric models; How non-linearity works? What are vanishing
gradients? What is the difference between Generative and Discriminative models? What is curse of dimensionality? and more.
- Solve unstructured text conundrums, tf-idf, word-vector embeddings, and more.
- Solve interesting problems using a variety of interesting structured and unstructured datasets. For example, create topic
models for an open Airbnb dataset and then rank the clusters.
- In light of rapid advancements in Auto-ML, get motivated to learn, unlearn and re-learn. Guidance and Help with picking up complementary skills like Search, Distributed Systems, Real Time Analytics, Machine Learning on Cloud, DevOps in Data
Science, Machine Learning in production and more
- Exclusive interactive session with a reputed Data Scientist from the Industry.
- What to expect in Data Science interviews?
- Handouts (Ureka Notes & Videos) helpful to solve the internship task for the week
- Team Exercises and Collaborative Work throughout the internship.
- Soft skills for Data Science professionals.
