What you’ll learn in our Data Analytics Program

Curated from our in-depth research and experience of the most in-demand skills for data analytics career pathways, our curriculum is broken down into 3 modules encompassing the following:

Learn the fundamentals of programming with the Python programming language. By the end of the module, you should have an apt understanding of building scripts with Python, interacting with databases, and sourcing data through APIs and scraping.

  • Dev Foundations: Git version control, Linux, and CLI/Terminal foundations
  • Python Basics: variables, conditional statements, loops, and functions
  • Data Types: strings, lists, files, tuples, sets, and dictionaries
  • Using Web Services: regular expressions, web scraping, and APIs
  • Advanced Python: object-oriented programming, unit-testing, and working with databases

Learn the essential Python libraries for data analysis. By the end of module, you’ll be able to clean data, analyse, visualise, and even deploy dashboards using Python data libraries.

  • Numpy Arrays: Learn how to do fast vectorised data operations with the Numpy library
  • Pandas Tabular Data: Learn how analyse and manipulate data with the Pandas library
  • Data Visualisation: Visualise data with plots built by Matplotlib and Seaborn libraries
  • Advanced Visualisation: Build geographic plots with GeoPandas and interactive plots with Plotly
  • Deployment of Dashboards: Deploy dashboards with a coherent data story with Dash by Plotly

Learn the fundamentals of data analytics outside the Python program ming environment. By the end of the module, you’ll be able to query SQL relational databases, design & build databases, and build dashboardsa with BI tools.

  • SQL Programming: Build basic and advanced queries with SQL on relational databases
  • SQL Database Design: Learn how to design databases, build, and optimise relational databases
  • Advanced Excel: Learn advanced formulae, Excel statistical modelling, build charts, forecasts, and pivot tables
  • Tableau Visualisation: Data storytelling through live dashboards with Tableau business intelligence tool

All Zindua programs require students to be versed with computer programming fundamentals for building efficient code and scalable solutions. In this program, here are the essential data structures and algorithms you’ll learn:

  • Basic Algorithms: Learn the Big-O Notation, Search, and Sorting Algorithms
  • Linear Data Structures: Learn Arrays, Hash maps, Stacks, Queues, Linked Lists, Trees, and Graphs
  • Non-Linear Data Structures: Trees, Graphs, and common algorithms involving trees/graphs such as pathfinding

Note that this is a Lite core program therefore, students will not get into advanced algorithms i.e. Dynamic Programming, and Greedy Algorithms which are covered in the longer/advanced Data Science Core Program.

To graduate the program, a student will be required to complete an end-to-end data analytics project involving sourcing data from an SQL database and/or API, cleaning data using Python and/or SQL queries, and building advanced dashboards to tell intricate data stories. Students have freedom to choose project on an industry niche of their interest or one that is aligned with their domain knowledge.

Hear from a graduate

Mercy Samoei, data analytics program graduate in 2023

If I compare the person I am now, versus the person I was prior to joining Zindua, I would say that I have grown in more than one aspect. Zindua has been a good learning experience: amazing tutors, the students you get to interact with, and it is also quite time friendly. Classes are usually sizeable enough so it is easy to have a one-on-one experience, not like the normal classroom experience you get from uni. What I love most about Zindua is the personalised learning approach, blended learning, where some classes are online and others in-person. They also have a very favourable income-share agreement financing.
