Why are data skills in high demand? Because cities are struggling to fill thousands of data science jobs. Here's why New York's demand for data professionals is on the rise.
Whether you’re a full-blown data nerd or someone that avoids numbers at all costs (guilty as charged), there’s no denying it: data skills are increasingly important. In fact, demand for data scientists is projected to rise by 28% in the next two years, with a projected 2.7 million new data jobs.
If that gives you anxiety, we got some good news for you: BrainStation is now accepting applications for the Data Science Full-Time program at our Toronto and Vancouver campuses.

Taught by experienced educators currently working in the field, the 10-week program introduces cutting-edge data concepts and techniques, including:
- Collecting and storing data with Excel, XML and SQL, and more
- Analyzing data using Python programming and relevant packages
- Visualizing data using tools like Tableau and PowerBI
- Data modelling using Python and R
- Presenting findings in a clear and engaging way
- Advanced topics like deep learning with TensorFlow and big data tools such as Hadoop
Put simply, by program’s end, graduates will have the skills, experience, and confidence to dive into a career in data. But don’t just take my word for it; here’s what our Founder and CEO, Jason Field, had to say about the program:
“All industries, from retail to banking, are in the midst of digital transformation, which is creating a huge number of new positions in data science and analysis. To address this skills gap, we worked with our hiring partners (from some of Canada’s largest organizations) to develop a collaborative, hands-on learning environment that mimics what you will experience in the real world,” he said.
What does that real-world experience look like for a Data Scientist? To find out, check out a conversation we had with Colin Fraser, a Data Scientist at CHIMP (Charitable Impact), and a lead Instructor for BrainStation’s part-time Data Science course.
