Note: A data analyst can become a data scientist, but it would take a lot of continual education. Becoming a junior software developer will allow for a more natural transition to being a data scientist.

    This video was interesting and well formatted but saying you NEED to go to college to get a degree is utterly false and why so many people end up with tons of student loan debt. The skills required to thrive as either a data scientist or analyst take discipline and handwork to learn and no college can give you that. As someone that has is currently a hybrid data scientist and analyst, I speak from experience when I say that all because you have a degree does not make you better than your peer who doesn't. Sure, the concepts involved with machine learning and neural networks is complex but you are underplaying the amount of great content on the web that can provide the necessary skills for a drastic discount compared to trying to obtain a 4 year degree.

    I just finished my mechanical engineering in june 2020. I want to pursue my career in data science but since I know I can't just jump in into this field having no prior knowledge. So I have decided to go into data analytics field and then pave my way into data science field . So can u plz guide me on this

    I am a full-stack dev turned data analyst. I still get to use my full-stack skills when I have to present the data I processed and create an application that visualizes and aggregates data. I create unattended data pipelines too that runs every day. I do not do Machine Learning however.

    Can Someone with a Bsc. in Business become a data analyst? If so can I use an Msc. in Business Analytics to get Data Science jobs?

    Say I major in environmental engineering but also want to do data analysis, would minoring ind data analysis be helpful? They pretty much have the same classes

    I'm an economist (I almost got my master's degree) and I want to star working in something related to data analysis but I don't know if my training in economic analysis and econometrics is a plus. I'm currently working in my Python and R skills too.

    Data analyst would normally work on data like a data scientist, and provide analytical output. The difference is that a data scientist applies scientific analysis to the output using mathematical or statistical techniques. Very good video, like your explanation 🙂

    This is very helpful!! Thank you. I am currently working towards a bachelors in Stats/Data Science, and have noticed there arent as many bachelor programs for Data Science. Do you think it would be better to have a bachelors in a broader degree such as math or statistics and then go for a Master's in Data Science?

    If I was essentially a Data Analyst in the Marine Corps for 4 years could that land a job doing Data analysis without a degree/cert ?

    I think data scientist here means Machine Learning Engineer.

    I have studying 'R' for data science on Dataquest for a month via a scholarship program that extends to March 2020. What are your thoughts?

    False. No Math or Stats degree, or PHD needed. Companies are going crazy because they can't find the talent needed cause universities are not graduating the number of seats that companies are trying to fill. What it's needed is Python and R Programming Languages and decent understanding of Math, and as in any career one can transition from Analyst to Scientist, just an upper level within the company.

    ENGINEERED TRUTH Is there a difference between data analyst and business analyst ? Or are they the same thing but different titles?

    Noooo, you are wrong. I am a senior data analyst at a leading IT company, Data analysts can definitely become a Data Scientist!
