What our Data Science bootcamp looks like

Check out our curriculum week after week.

Prepwork: get ready to start the bootcamp!

Once you’ve been accepted, you'll receive about 40 hours of online learning resources, carefully curated by Le Wagon to be intuitive and interactive. This prepwork will ensure you have the necessary foundations in Python and maths before the bootcamp starts.

  • Terminal, Git and OS basic commands
  • Python foundations 
  • Maths foundations (in a fun & intuitive way!)

What you will do in practice

  • 40 hours of online tutorials
  • Curated resources from Le Wagon to gain solid foundations

Learn Python for data science: extract data from relational databases, manipulate big data matrix and build visualizations. Understand key maths concepts for data analysis like statistics & linear algebra.

  • Source data from files, web-scraping, or APIs
  • Manipulate data with Python, Pandas & Numpy
  • Query / store data with SQL & Google Big Query
  • Visualization with Jupyter Notebook, Matplotlib, Seaborn & Plotly

What you will build in practice

Why you should study Data Science in Zurich

It is not a secret that is very tough to get access to the Swiss Job Market. But when you manage to enter it, it is very rewarding in terms of quality of life and salary. By studying in Zurich, benefit from our connections with local hiring companies and start networking right from the beginning of the bootcamp with recruiters, alumni, teachers, event speakers and participants, etc.

The annual EIU report (Global Liveability Index 2022) provides a ranking of the best places to live in the world – 173 cities scored across five broad categories and ranked according to stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure. Zurich has been ranked 3rd with an overall rating of 96.3, just below Copenhagen and Vienna. Often mistaken as Switzerland’s capital (that’s actually Bern), Zürich is its largest and wealthiest city, meaning it attracts people from all over the world looking to live a better life. Once they arrive, most quickly discover the city’s true appeal – yes, it’s efficient, clean and well run but scratch a little below the surface and you’ll discover a post-industrial cauldron of young and old creatives treading its winding streets, venturing into the surrounding mountains and lakes in search of adventure, bringing new ideas to life, and buzzing with the opporunities of what may be thanks to its ‘anything is possible’ atmosphere. Commuting to work by floating down the Limmat River is also a great way to start each day!

Switzerland is playing a key role in building the next dimension of the internet: the metaverse. Thanks to the influence of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich), Microsoft, Facebook, Google, Disney Research and Magic Leap have all opened offices or research laboratories in Switzerland's economic capital.

Switzerland is home to world-renowned universities and research institutes in the area of AI, such as the two federal institutes of technology ETH Zurich and EPFL in Lausanne, IDSIA in Lugano, IDIAP in Martigny, and many cantonal universities. This proximity to cutting-edge research is an important reason why global tech companies such as Google, IBM, and HPE conduct their research from here. Thanks to its traditional strength in the field of life sciences, Switzerland also drives AI developments in healthcare and pharmaceuticals. There is a closely-knit tech ecosystem in place that brings innovative products to the market quickly. Switzerland provides a very stable political and economic environment that offers globally active companies a safe place to host and validate their main asset: data. Trustworthy governance and legal certainty lead to reduced risks for companies, which benefit from unbureaucratic support from cantons and the government.
