Hi ! I have done M.Tech in ECE in 2013 & proficient in MATLAB with Neural Networks, Machine Learning & Fuzzy Logic & a self learner. I know little bit of Python, NumPy, SciPy & Matplotlib but never used R or SAS. Right now working as Assistant Professor in Engineering College but I want to change my career to Data Scientist.
Do I need to master only one or all three (Python, R, SAS) and one more important question is that I am confident that I will master any one in 6 moths but while applying for job does certifications matter??? Course certification is mandatory to apply for job???
How to update my self regarding Data Scientist skills as industry standard??
