"The iX data science course offered thorough preparation for my internship. Through course engagement and consistent expert guidance, I feel I have mastered the programming skills, enabling me to analyze large datasets and further educational research in my internship placement."

Brian Li, UVA '19

Claire adair

"Thanks to our professor, Andrew Collier, and TA, Arthur Wu, whose data science expertise was matched both by pedagogical ability and engagement, my classmates and I have not only strengthened our coding skills, but earned a contextual understanding of how big data analysis can inform the guidance of major systems and reveal otherwise overlooked patterns."

Claire Adair, Princeton '19

Yash tekriwal

"After completing the course I’m a couple of steps further in the search for meaning through data. If not, I’ve gained a family of amazing people. At the end of the day, that’s what data science is. A quest to find meaning where it didn’t exist before."

Yash Tekriwal, UVA '18

Sophia dong

"I've honestly learned more in four weeks than I have in three months of many of my college courses. It's been an honor and a privilege to work with someone as knowledgeable as our teacher, Andrew. I woke up every day interested in what we were learning next."

Sophia Dong, Rutgers University '19

Gates cao

"Honestly, I can't believe the amount of knowledge and skills I've acquired and how much I felt empowered in such a short period of time. I worked hard on the exercises and projects not to get good grades, but because I was inspired and eager to dive into the materials. I'm confident that the data science skills I learned will open up lots of opportunities that I didn't think of before."

Gates Cao, Northwestern '18
