Thanks for reaching out.
The fact that you are trained in mechanical engineering gives you an edge because having advanced knowledge and skills of mathematics and quantitative disciplines is a huge advantage. In fact, we believe that our program can give you the best idea on what steps you need to take in order to become a complete data scientist!
We also provide all the lessons and exercises you need to go through to acquire the skills you need in order to become a data scientist – you will have the chance to work on your programming skills (mainly Python, but also R and SQL), as well as go through lectures and exercises that will help you build your business acumen.
With these two additions and some statistics that we also teach, you will be able to become a data scientist.
Good luck and please feel free to post another question should you encounter other difficulties. Thank you.
Hope this helps.
