Coming from an engineering degree where it lacked programming skills, so I knew I had to get more experience before I embark on this journey.
While I was doing Udacity FEND, I was also working full time as an Industrial Engineer at Schneider Electric where I would work on this after I come back from work. At work, I was working on a very cool project, (in my opinion) where I created an MS Access database (using VBA and SQL) which the operators working on the factory floor would input data on the things they were working on and I could extrapolate the data and bring new business insight to the stakeholders, this is where I knew I wanted to work with data.
Currently, I have applied to the Self-driving Car Nanodegree where it is a 9-month long course learning about cutting-edge of robotics, machine learning, computer vision. On 13th July I will find out if I have been accepted or not, so really excited about that.
To prepare myself the courses I have completed are;
- DataCamp – Data Scientist With Python
- Coursera – Machine Learning by Andrew Ng
- Udacity – Intro to Machine Learning
What I am working on towards now are;
- Treehouse – Python
- HackerRank – Python Challenges
- Udacity – Artifical Intelligence for Robotics
- Udacity – Introduction to Computer Vision
I believe this will provide me with a strong foundation to pursue the Self-driving Car Nanodegree, I will keep you guys updated with what happens.
