What our graduates are saying

Celio Oliveira

Reviewed in 2019 | Overall ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This program is fantastic! I didn’t have a coding background and the way they prepared each module made it easier to understand from basic concepts to Advanced SQL, Python, ML and Data Science that I just finished. It is all very exciting. They really do prepare you and offer great support (includes problem sets, individually and in group and quizzes). Teachers are well connected and help you, no matter the prior experience. When you graduate, you have a portfolio of projects, a very good literature and also hands on practise what is important as they showcase your writing capability.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions about the bootcamp
Both data scientists and machine learning engineers know how to train and tune ML models. However, data scientists usually work on experimentations, research, data analytics, and working closely with the business teams to answer advanced analytics questions. The ML models created by data scientists can be used for root cause analysis and predictive analytics. ML engineers on the other hand will focus more on training and tuning ML models at scale and also automating the ML pipelines and help deploy the models in production. The output of an ML engineer’s work is usually integrated into a production system. Some ML engineers also need to build ML systems and monitor ML models in production. ML Engineers tend to spend more time on scaling ML pipelines and dealing with ML infrastructures. In some companies, data scientists will do exactly what the ML engineers do. It really depends on the role profile. Job title doesn’t always fully define what a DS or MLE does.
Learners are expected to join the program with solid python programming and decent ML knowledge already, at least the classic ML algorithms. If you don’t meet the pre-requisites, we recommend you go through the AI fundamentals course and ML Engineer pre-bootcamp material to get prepared. Going through the pre-bootcamp will make sure you can comprehend most of the new materials taught in this program quickly, which will leave you more time to focus on practice instead of struggling with the basics.
We’ve seen a good mix of learners from various background. Most students already have python programming and data science experiences. It doesn’t have to be related work experience though. We have learners who has completed self-paced ML courses or other data science bootcamps as well. Typically learners come from the following background: 1. data scientist who want to harness the MLE and MLOps skills. 2. Software engineers who have machine learning knowledge. 3. DevOps engineers who are interested in operating ML systems. 4. New graduates from computer science or computer engineering who have taken ML courses in school or who can complete the pre-course materials on their own. 5. Non-tech background learners who have completed WeCloudData’s AI short courses as a pre-requisites. 6. PhD graduates who want to fast track their job search and meet the technical pre-requisites
To get the most up to date information about the MLE job market, we recommend you check out the Job Market Report and blog posts on our website. Typically, junior ML engineers are expected to be paid a base salary of $110k CAD in Canada and $150k USD in the U.S.. Senior ML engineers can be compensated well over $200k USD. The salary will be even higher for ML engineers who specialize in generative AI.
ML Engineer jobs have high entry bars. The successful candidates are expected to have 3+ years of experience. If you’re new to this field or switching career, the experience gap can be closed by working on real client projects via WeCloudData’s bootcamp. It’s not as competitive as other data fields such as data analytics and data science because there’re less qualified job applicants who have the right skills.
PhD is not a must have for MLE roles. About 10% of the MLE jobs specifically mention PhD in the description. 30-40% of the MLE jobs require Master’s and 50% of the MLE jobs require bachelor’s degree.
Software engineering knowledge is not necessary but definitely helpful. Many students have successfully completed the course without a CS background. We highly recommend learners pick up some basic CS knowledge before attending this course.
On average, our students spend between 6 hours in lectures, 3 to 4 hours in labs, and 5 to 10 additional hours on self-paced practice per week in the part-time program.
There are 3 main courses in this Bootcamp. Computer vision, NLP, and MLOps. Though the bootcamp requires students to complete all 3 courses, you can choose to focus on one or two areas. For example, if you’re more interested in CV, you can focus on training and deploying CV applications. The MLOps project can be built on what you build in the CV course.
No. But learners need to have prior ML experience. Knowing the basics of ML process is very important. During the bootcamp, we will cover ML review and AI fundamentals.
While students have the freedom to use any libraries they want, this course mainly focuses on PyTorch and PyTorch Lightning, which are the most popular Python-based deep learning libraries. PyTorch is developed and open sourced by Facebook. Students will also get exposed to Tensorflow and Keras in some labs.
Here’re some of the MLOps and ML Engineer tools we teach in this program: docker, data version control, ONNX, Github actions, AWS, SageMaker, Lambda, API Gateway, Spark, MLflow, Kubeflow, Kubernetes, Seldon, etc.
This program focuses on ML tools/services in the AWS ecosystem. The skills you gain will be quite transferrable to other cloud platforms. It’s better to get good at one tool than being average at two.
Every live-online lecture is recorded so that you can watch them anytime. In addition, you can always book a one-on-one meeting with our TAs to help you catch up with the session you missed.
The MLOps course in the bootcamp is very practical and focuses on implementation. Therefore we don’t spend too much time on explaining the theory of computer system, cloud, and software engineering. MLOps is relatively new and it evolves fast. Most companies want to hire MLOps engineers who know how to apply industry tools to solve real challenges. Since building ML systems is a very practical topic, we will focus on the HOWs and teach students to build things that work as close to best practices as possible.
This course is designed to be very hands-on. It’s impossible to become good at MLE and MLOps without actually trying to deploy ML solutions. If you prefer a more academic environment, we recommend you consider a Master’s program. If you want to gain practical experience and build portfolio projects, this is the perfect course.
Depending on your existing skill sets and experience with machine learning, learners usually spend 15 to 20 hours each week (including the lectures and labs)
Yes. This Bootcamp has a part-time class schedule. Both full time and part time students will be in the same class. The difference is that full time learners will spend the weekdays on real client project training, so their progress will be faster than the part time students. But the learning schedule will be the same. If you cannot make the live classes and prefer to watch the recordings, you can do so. You can also inquire about a recording-only Bootcamp with more flexible schedule.
Yes, during the regular weeks we have office hours and labs sheets students get to follow labs and ask questions. During the project weeks, students will join the project mentoring sessions to interact the project mentors.
There are two types of projects: personal projects (also called capstone or portfolio projects) and real client projects. All students in the course will need to complete the capstone project. The real client project is a different training and career service offered at WeCloudData via our partner Beamdata. Learners will become a trainee and receive project-based training. Learners will be assigned to a real project team to work with clients and get mentored and trained by our project managers and project leads. It’s a great learning opportunity and also allow the students to gain real experience to stand out in the job market. You can talk to our learning advisors to find more details.
Yes. The ML Bootcamp comes with 6 months of career mentorship. During the bootcamp, we host resume workshops, interview preparation sessions and help students with their resumes and portfolio projects. After the Bootcamp, students will enter a 6-month career mentoring phase where they work with an industry mentor on a one-on-one basis for job search. Mentoring sessions are one of the most important advantage of WeCloudData’s bootcamps. It offers services beyond resume help and the mentors are all data industry professionals instead of regular career counselors.
How do you support students find jobs after graduation?
You can find our alumni reviews and stories by visiting the student success pages.
Yes. If you’re doing the bootcamp to up-skill yourself you can opt out of the career service. Fees can be deducted from the tuition.
Upon successfully completing the Bootcamp, Canadian learners will get a diploma issued by WeCloudData Academy (under Ministry of Education). Please contact our learning advisor for more details. For US and international learners, you will get a Bootcamp certificate.
Yes. Scholarship is available for students who meet the requirements. A scholarship test needs to be completed and the learner needs have a 20-minute live assessment with the program manager. Alumni who have completed courses that meet the pre-requisites will also be eligible for scholarships.
Yes, payment plan is available for this course. You can fill out the form on this course page to access the course package details. It has funding related information. Our learning advisor can also help you with your questions.
