Start the bootcamp prepared!

Our Data Science course is very intense. To save time and nail it from the beginning, our students must complete an online preparation work before starting the bootcamp. This work takes around 40 hours and covers the basics of Python, the pre-requisite language of the course, and some mathematical topics used every day by data scientists.

Python for Data Science

Learn programming in Python, how to work with Jupyter Notebook and to use powerful Python libraries like Pandas and NumPy to explore and analyze big data sets. Collect data from various sources, including CSV files, SQL queries on relational databases, Google Big Query, APIs and Web scraping.

Relational Database & SQL

Learn how to formulate a good question and how to answer it by building the right SQL query. This module will cover schema architecture and then dive deep into the advanced manipulation of SELECT to extract useful information from a stand-alone database or using a SQL client software like DBeaver.

Data Visualization

Make your data analyses more visual and understandable by including data visualizations in your Notebook. Learn how to plot your data frames using Python libraries such as matplotlib and seaborn and transform your data into actionable insights.

Statistics, Probability, Linear Algebra

Understand the underlying math behind all the libraries and models used in the bootcamp. Become comfortable with the basic concepts of statistics & probabilities (mean, variance, random variable, Bayes’s Theorem, etc.) and with matrix computation, at the core of numerical operations in libraries like Pandas and Numpy.

c pulse Statistical inferences

You'll learn how to structure a Python repository with object-oriented programming in order to clean your code and make it re-usable, how to survive the data preparation phase of a vast dataset, and how to find and interpret meaningful statistical results based on multivariate regression models

speaker Communication

Data analysts are meant to communicate their findings to non-technical audiences: You will learn how to create impact by explaining your technical insights and turn them into business decisions using cost/benefits analysis. You'll be able to share your progress, present and compare your results to your teammates.

Preprocessing and Supervised Learning

Learn how to explore, clean, and prepare your dataset through preprocessing techniques like vectorization. Get familiar with the classic models of supervised learning - linear and logistic regressions. Learn how to solve prediction and classification tasks with the Python library scikit-learn using learning algorithms like KNN (k-nearest neighbors).

Generalization and Overfitting

Implement training and testing phases to make sure your model can be generalised to unseen data and deployed in production with predictable accuracy. Learn how to prevent overfitting using regularization methods and how to chose the right loss function to improve your model's accuracy.

Performance Metrics

Evaluate your model's performance by defining what to optimise and the right error metrics in order to assess your business impact. Improve your model's performance with validation methods such as cross validation or hyperparameter tuning. Finally, discover a powerful supervised learning method called SVM (Support Vector Machines).

Unsupervised Learning & Advanced Methods

Move to unsupervised learning and implement methods like PCA for dimensionality reduction or clustering for discovering groups in a data set. Complete your toolbelt with ensemble method that combine other models to improve performance, such as Random Forest or Gradient Boosting.

Neural Networks

Unveil the magic behind Deep Learning by understanding the architecture of neural networks (neurons, layers, stacks) and their parameters (activations, losses, optimizers). Become autonomous to build your own networks, especially to work with images, times and text, while learning the techniques and tricks that make Deep Learning work.

Computer Vision

Go further into computer vision with Convolutional Neural Networks, architectures designed to take the most out of images. Improve your model generalization thanks to data augmentation techniques and implement advanced methods to benefit from state-of-the-art architectures thanks to Transfer learning methods.

Times-Series & Text data

Get comfortable into managing sequential data and text (sequence of words) by transforming them into appropriate inputs. Leverage the power of Recurrent Neural Networks to forecast future values and perform valuable Natural Language Processing.

Deep Learning made easy

Discover the Keras Deep Learning library which enables to prototype easily while having the flexibility to tune precisely your neural network. Moreover, Google Colab will greatly speed up the computational time thanks to dedicated GPUs.

Machine Learning Pipeline

Move from Jupyter Notebook to a code editor and learn how to setup a machine learning project in the right way in order to quickly and confidently iterate. Learn how to convert a machine learning model into a model with a robust and scalable pipeline with sklearn-pipeline using encoders and transformers.

Machine Learning workflow with MLflow

Building a machine learning model from start to finish requires a lot of data preparation, experimentation, iteration and tuning. We'll teach you how to do your feature engineering and hyperparameter tuning in order to build the best model. For this, we will leverage a library called MLflow.

Deploying to production with Google Cloud Platform

Finally, we'll show you how to deploy your code and model to production. Using Google Cloud AI Platform, you'll be able to train your model at scale, package it and make it available to the world. Cherry on top, you will use a Docker environment to deploy your own RESTful Flask API which could be plugged to any front-end interface.

Student Projects

You'll spend the last two weeks on a group project working on an exciting data science problem you want to solve! As a team, you'll learn how to collaborate efficiently on a real data science project through a common Python repository and the Git flow. You will use a mix of your own datasets (if you have any from your company / non-profit organisation) and open-data repositories (Government initiatives, Kaggle, etc.). It will be a great way to practise all the tools, techniques and methodologies covered in the Data Science Course and will make you realize how autonomous you have become.

Any questions about our program in Montreal

If you got here, it means that you have questions about Le Wagon: how to apply, who can join, what you’ll learn… Good! We have the answers.

What type of visa do I need to attend Le Wagon in Canada?

If you’ll be attending the 9-week full-time bootcamp, simply entering Canada as a visitor with a valid passport is usually enough. That said, some people may require a visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization. While we don’t formally assist students with acquiring visas, we’re happy to point you in the right direction. Here’s some useful information to help find the travel documents you need.

If you’re planning on attending the 24-week part-time program, make sure to check (and double check!) whether you’re authorized to stay in Canada for the program’s entirety.

Do you have local scholarships or other financing options in Canada?

We have a partnership with a financial institution (Caisse Desjardins des TI), that offers low-interest student loans and flexible payment options. This option is available for all students who are approved in the first steps of our selection process and are Canadian citizens or residents.

You can also withdraw from your RESPs or RRSPs (for use in the LLP) to pay for your tuition. Here is more info for using your RESP and to participate in the LLP.

Do you offer career support in Canada?

We do support all our students in finding the right career path after the bootcamp, sharing them all the necessary resources to build the best LinkedIn profile, getting the best out of the alumni Slack groups, enjoy our exclusive perks, land their first job as developers, product managers or in a data team, launch their startup or start their freelancing career.

We organize four career weeks a year for our alumni that include inspiring talks, networking with alumni and job fairs. See one of our career week' s video

However, we consider that the ability of each student to find a position after the bootcamp is highly based on the student's motivation and work. Guaranteeing 100% employment at the end of the bootcamp would be dishonest in that regard. When choosing a bootcamp, what you should focus on is the quality of the curriculum and teachers. You should ask yourself about the skills you will have at the end and the product you will be able to build. This is what will really make you hireable.

Keep in mind that Le Wagon has an excellent network within the tech industry and a very good reputation with recruiters. Our students massively benefit from this. Moreover, we now have thousands of alumni worldwide. This internal network is your first support when looking for a job: our alumni work for the best tech companies out there and can recommend you for a position, and they'll also be available to support you during the search - by answering technical or non-technical questions.

What are the graduates from Montréal doing now?

We have hundreds of alumni who graduated from one of our batches in Montréal, most of them living in the city. After Le Wagon, the majority found a new job (either as a product manager or developer). A part of them are working as freelancers now and around 10% of them are entrepreneurs. It’s a rich, diverse and vibrant community <3

If you want to know more about them, you could also check some of our inspiring alumni stories or read the outcomes of our coding bootcamp

As an International Student, can I find a job in Canada after the bootcamp?

If you already have a work permit and are authorized to work in Canada, it will make the job search process faster. If it is not the case yet, find more information about different types of work visas. You could also check eligibility to immigration programs, such as Express Entry or Quebec Immigration Programs.

But again, as we mentioned before, to attend the full-time bootcamp you only need to enter to Canada as a visitor :)

Is the tuition tax deductible in Canada?

Your tuition is tax deductible. We'll issue a T2202A for you to claim your tuition for the program on your tax return. For student living in Québec, we will also issue a receipt for your tax filing at Revenu Québec.

What payments methods are accepted in Canada?

For local or national students: e-transfer (Interac), bank transfer, or cheque. For international students: Transferwise is a good option or World Remit.
