How to Become a Data Scientist

This video discusses some of the skills which need to be possessed by a data scientist and points out that engineers and scientists across domains may be more than half way there in terms of being a data scientist. Additional skills needed for data science jobs such as python language coding, probability and statistics, signal and image processing and estimation and machine learning algorithms are pointed out. Data analyst or analysis are also synonymous with data science. You can learn data science with self study and through online courses by supplementing your current science and engineering knowledge. If you are a graduate student or a PhD, data science may provide you with employment opportunities outside your core research and training area.

About Dr Ganguli

I started this channel during the pandemic to help students, scholars and researchers achieve success in their academic work and professional career. It focuses on scholarship in general with a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) perspective. I use my experience as a PhD researcher in engineering, science and mathematics to provide students with condensed information which a graduate advisor should give to his students. I have published extensively in journals and conferences and have written book chapters, books and review papers. The videos also seek to inculcate research culture across college and high school students and help them get ahead in the academic system. I am also putting some courses on the channel for education.
