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.
