Switching career in data science

Hello freecodecamp community. I have an engineering background with a very little knowledge of coding. But I practiced it and understood basics of Python (thanks to freecodecamp). I just want to ask the following points:

  • Does Data science job requires computer science degree Or skill-set with certification is enough to get into this field

  • If requires degree can I do MS in data science having background in bs mechanical engineering.

  • Where should I take start.

With an STEM degree and relevant skills, you shouldn’t need an additional degree.

If you decide that you want an MS degree, you should be able to get into a relevant MS program with a BS, but you might need to do some prereq courses from the CS and/or Math department.
