Data scientists are in high demand in a wide range of industries, including healthcare, energy, finance, IT, retails, and nonprofits. Companies and organizations are hiring data analysts, data researchers, and machine learning engineers to extract valuable insights from massive amounts of data.
“Every dataset comes with unique challenges. Data science gives you the technical tools to solve those challenges,” Dr. Allen said. “As a data scientist, your job is a problem solver to find data-driven solutions that can make an impact in the world around you.”
