EXPLORE is a next generation learning institution that teaches students the skills of the future. From Data Science to Data Engineering, from Machine Learning to Deep Learning we deliver cutting edge courses to satisfy your hunger to learn.
Our programmes and courses are built by an amazing faculty. We employ some of the world’s most talented scientists who have experience solving difficult problems on a global stage.
Our philosophy is to teach our students how to solve problems in the real world. We emphasise teamwork, collaboration and working within constraints, under deadlines … while understanding context, audience and implementation challenges.
We are not a theoretical institution (although we cover the theory) - we are a ‘practical, hands-on, roll-up-your-sleeves and get stuff done’ kind of institution. As real-world scientists who have delivered impact in the world of work we’re well positioned to deliver these skills.
EXPLORE launched during 2013 and since then has taught thousands of students and solved many problems for businesses across multiple industries across the world. We’re reinventing education and invite you to join us.
The way EXPLORE works is to find a tough, complex problem, gather smart, creative people around it, tackle it piece by piece using science, theory and grit, until it is solved, and the next problem uncovers itself… We love the poetry that flows when people are united around a common goal.
Four megatrends are fundamentally changing the shape of our world:
Vast amounts of data are being generated every minute. Harnessing the power of the opportunities presented by this excites us!
The processing speed of our machines is increasing exponentially. Taming these machines to do tasks for us, leaves us with space for the exciting work!
We now have cloud providers who can store insane amounts of data for a few dollars. Anyone, anywhere, anything.
Powerful open source algorithms that can read, write, translate and see are now available to everyone. The possibilities are literally endless!
We are not your traditional learning institution…
Every course is broken down into manageable, weekly units, designed to accelerate your learning process through diverse learning activities:
Work through downloadable content and online instructional material
Interact with your peers and learning facilitators through real-time chat platforms and regular live interactions.
Enjoy a wide range of interactive content, including video lectures, coding challenges, hackathons, and presentations.
Investigate real-world case studies
Learn how to use various data tools, software and models
Apply what you learn each week to quizzes, coding challenges and project submissions, culminating in the ability to use real-world data to solve a real-life problem.
Our courses are technical in nature and so basic computer literacy is essential for the completion of all of our courses.
Software Requirements To complete our courses, you will need a current email account and access to a computer and the internet, as well as a PDF Reader.
