Dun tink so. I also had engineering degree but I jus applied Anw. Yes it's possible to apply for max 2 tracks.

Anw I haven't gotten my email for invitation to online test...
i don have any programming language knowledge and i hold an engineering degree. so that i means i can apply for DA track only right?

i find that for such kind of courses - TFIP IBF Data Analytics are just "money-sucking" or money-spinning for the schools as well as for the lecturers to earn rice-bowl money. For any mid-career switch, why would any employers want to consider such kind candidates (TFIP IBF Data Analytics) over some other full-time SUTD/SUSS/NUS/SMU or even full-time Diploma graduates from SP/RP who have done internship.

To learn all the knowledge of data analytics, there's so many Machine Learning/Deep Learning textbooks to read & most important to use these knowledge to apply & solve problems that's more valuable than just attending courses. If one is really very interested in Data Analytics, should consider either Masters Degree from NUS/NTU/DigiPen instead of such short courses of 18 months with TFIP IBF Data Analytics.

you do know that for this, candidates are not paying the school nor the company right? instead, the candidates are being paid to learn

separately, does anyone with assessment has different timing from 23 may 11am?

This is a conversion program catered for mid career individual. Employer consider such candidates due to the wage subsidy provided by government. If a person can learn the skill sets without attending any course, that would be a lot of cost savings for the student.

And to be even more specific, this data analytic course is only 24 working days if not wrong and the rest of 18 months is attached to a company. I am not from the data science track, but i do not think their main focus is on Machine Learning as that is more towards AI.

the data analytics track is not data science/AI/ML.

they said so in the video (on youtube). you will be doing mostly grunt data work and data visualization.

eh what is with you and ceca? didn't somebody already address that issue last year? are you going to repeat the same statement in 2021?

but on a very hard reality there is a lot of ceca taking up IT jobs in Singapore. Just not this program.
