Can I become a data scientist with Computer Science background?

It's never about "i have a ____ degree, can i do ____?"

There are plenty of people who have great degrees without the necessary skills, and people without degrees who self-study and are sufficiently prepared.

Basic Programming Languages: You should know a statistical programming language, like R or Python (along with Numpy and Pandas Libraries), and a database querying language like SQL Statistics: You should be able to explain phrases like null hypothesis, P-value, maximum likelihood estimators and confidence intervals.

Thus, familiarity with data visualization tools like ggplot is very important (so you can SHOW data, not just talk about them) Software Engineering: You should know algorithms and data structures, as they are often necessary in creating efficient algorithms for machine learning.
