  • Are there any pre requisites for this course?

    No requirements are needed to learn R. The only knowledge that needed to learn R is basic statistical knowledge.

  • Why you should learn R first for data science

    • R is becoming the lingua franca for data science. That's not to say that it's the only language, or that it's the best tool for every job. It is, however, the most widely used and it is rising in popularity.
    • Beyond tech giants like Google, Facebook, and Microsoft, R is widely in use at a wide range of companies including Bank of America, Ford, TechCrunch, Uber, and Trulia.
    • R is popular in academia: R isn't just a tool for industry. It is also very popular among academic scientists and researchers.
    • Learning the "skills of data science" is easiest in R. To do this, you'll need to master the 3 core skill areas of data science: data manipulation, data visualization, and machine learning. Mastering these skill areas will be easier in R than almost any other language.

  • Can I just enroll in a single course? I'm not interested in the entire Specialization.

    No you cannot enroll for individual skill sets within a defined course on teleuniv.

  • How long does it take to complete this Specialization?

    Most learners are able to complete the Specialization in about 3 months.

  • Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?

    We recommend taking the courses in the order presented, as each subsequent course will build on material from previous courses.

  • What will I be able to do upon completing this Specialization?

    This specialization will unlock great career opportunities as a Hadoop developer. Become a Hadoop expert by learning concepts like Pig, Hive, Flume and Sqoop. Get industry-ready with some of the best Big Data projects and real-life use-cases.

  • Can I attend a demo session?

    We have limited number of participants in a live session to maintain the Quality Standards, hence, participation in a live class without enrollment is not possible. However, we can create a demo login for one demo session.

  • What are the payment options?

    You can pay by Credit Card, Debit Card or Net Banking from all the leading banks. We use a Payment Gateway.

  • Do you provide placement assistance?

    Teleuniv is associated with Keshav Memorial Institute of Technology, one among the top performing colleges in Hyderabad and hence lot of recruitment firms contacts us for our students profiles from time to time. Since there is a big demand for this skill, we help our certified students get connected to prospective employers.
