Which course should I apply after class 12 in order to become a data scientist ? What are the job opportunities of data scientist ?
A data scientist is a programmer. Although the demand for Data scientists far exceeds the supply, very few educational institutions have begun formal courses that develop the holistic skill set required to become a data scientist. To pursue career as a data scientist, you should know that you need to have a high level of educational qualification. A majority of the data scientists have a Master’s Degree and at least half of the data scientists have PhDs. Becoming a data scientist requires a strong and an in-depth knowledge in the field of Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, and Engineering.
Also, data scientist needs diverse skills. Data scientists should have strong computational and numerical skills. They should also have very strong communication skills - both verbal and visual - along with a very good sense of the business environment.
