Increasing demand for further training in the field of data science
Today's further education offers in the field of data science do not yet guarantee that corporate challenges are really considered individually. For example, previous offers hardly consider the development of cross-role teams that are necessary to implement large digitization projects. In particular, learners often lack access to technical experts after continuing education in order to optimally transfer what they have learned to the company. The Fraunhofer IPT and its partners are working on the implementation of industry-related, cross-role training in the field of data science.
"Weiterbildungszentrum" for Data Science
In the project, the "Weiterbildungszentrum - Data Science" is being founded in order to become the first contact point for continuing education of this kind in the German-speaking world and to expand the market presence in the European region. The development of an industry-related further training program to become a certified "Data Scientist, specialized in Smart Production" (Smart Production Specialist) will also serve this purpose. Services and concepts accompanying further training will be expanded using the example of the Smart Production Specialist.
This further education in the field of data science covers all roles and tasks that are required in data science projects. The elaboration is implemented in the form of services which can be used for individual further training measures and offer direct added value to the participants. The Fraunhofer IPT is developing the content for the advanced module "Data Scientist, specialized in Smart Production" on the basis of a didactic concept and concrete tasks in production. Production data sets available to the Fraunhofer IPT as well as those that are freely available are used in learning laboratories and for the development of the tasks. The Fraunhofer IPT's special expertise, in data science and production alike, enables it to develop a competence test for participants in continuing education.
