Data is the new gold.

Launched in 2013 in Paris, Le Wagon is ranked No. 1 coding bootcamp in the world, and is established in 39 cities (22 countries) worldwide. The Tokyo chapter was launched in 2016, and already trained over 250 students through its full-time and part-time web development bootcamps.

Leveraging on  the success of its teaching philosophy and practical approach, and to answer a growing need for tech education in Japan, Le Wagon Tokyo launches its new Data Science bootcamp. Le Wagon, a worldwide leader in short and intensive coding bootcamps, waited seven years to expand its portfolio with a data offering:

«At the beginning of Le Wagon in 2013, data wasn’t mature enough. Today this job sector is much more organized, and skillset required has become very standardized», explains Sebastien Saunier, ex-Google engineer, CTO, and one of Le Wagon 3 co-founders.

With a current alumni network of 7,500 members, Le Wagon sets a goal of 7,000 new graduates trained on Data Science by 2023.
The first Data Science bootcamp in Japan will happen from October 12th to December 11th 2020. The course is taught in English. @Le Wagon Tokyo

🔥 A skill set in high demand

After 9 full-time intensive weeks, students will graduate from the bootcamp with a high-level skill set. They will have learnt how to collect, store, clean, explore and  transform data, as well as master data prediction, advanced Machine Learning and Deep Learning models.

Coming out of the program, graduates will be able to join a data team as a junior data scientist, data analyst, or data engineer.

🧠 Think like a Data Scientist

This new bootcamp has been designed following the same approach that has made Le Wagon successful: a 9-week intensive program with 90% of practical exercises based on actual Data Science projects. It teaches all the needed skills to launch a Data Science project and ensure students’ employability after the program.

The bootcamp is split in five modules mixing theoretical knowledge, mastery of industry-standard tools, and hands-on exercises ranging from Data Science Foundations, to Machine Learning, Data Engineering, Deep Learning, and a staple of Le Wagon, Projects.

Knowledge in mathematics and programming is required to apply for this Data Science course. Applicants will have to go through a round of interview and a 40-hour preparatory work.

The curriculum will be delivered by a team of data analytics and data science professionals. 

Applications for the first session in Tokyo are already open, and the first 9-week session will kick-off on October 12th 2020
