I am also very proud that I embarked on this journey; my confidence has increased and so have my chances of getting employed. I am so thankful.”

One day, I found this amazing programme, and I am having the best time of my life studying Software Engineering. I can’t begin to imagine what joy I will have when I start using my knowledge to solve real life problems.”

What is the difference between data science and data analytics?
Data analytics refers to the process of examining large datasets to uncover patterns or notice trends. The main purpose of a data analyst is to find correlations between different sets of data. Data science, on the other hand, goes beyond simply analysing existing datasets. Data scientists will develop algorithms and models that can help extract information from data sets in order to find actionable insights.
What does a data analyst do?
Data analysts examine large data sets to identify trends, develop charts, and create visualisations that help businesses make more strategic decisions. Broadly speaking, data analysts use data to solve problems by identifying patterns, trends, and insights.
