At the University of Cape Coast, Ghana, the first module of the 20-week extracurricular training programme in Data Science and Business Intelligence started in July. The programme extends over two semesters and includes practical phases in companies in addition to the technical school training.
The DigiCAP training programme combines classroom phases in the FlexLab on campus and components of virtual learning. The training is explicitly practice-relevant and company-oriented. The learning is designed in a hybrid way and students can either participate directly in the teaching process in weekly classroom sessions or take part online via live streaming. The learning units are also recorded and are available to students at any time.
The trainings require a commitment of 12 hours per week from the participants. This includes interaction with the teachers in the FlexLab and on campus and self-study units.
To ensure compatibility with regular studies, the learning units take place at weekends and during lecture-free periods.
