As documented by Byron Bo Jones
I’m an American project manager with more than 15 years of experience working as a transformational project engineer for Koch Industries. After recognizing the prevalence of data science and artificial intelligence in our industry, I decided to upskill myself. I believed that upskilling would help me increase the scope of my work and perform more efficiently. I enrolled in Simplilearn’s Professional Certificate Program in AI and Machine Learning in collaboration with Purdue University. It is the second time I’ve taken a Simplilearn course, and the experience has been great.
After completing the course, I am better positioned to seek new roles in artificial intelligence and machine learning within my organization. I also believe the course helped me build valuable connections and networks with other data science experts at my company.
What benefitted me the most was Simplilearn’s friendly, experienced instructors and comprehensive curriculum. I trust that the course material is up to date with the newest technological advances.
In the future, I plan to secure a leadership position in the fintech or healthcare sector to use my data science skills to the best of my ability.
My Job Requires an In-Depth Understanding of Data
The world around us is data-driven, and my job profile demands an in-depth understanding of data and its applications. To increase the scope of my work abilities and make better overall decisions, I decided to upskill myself.
I am a project manager with 15+ years of experience. My academics revolved around mechanical engineering, and I am currently working as a transformational projects engineer at Koch Industries. My day-to-day responsibilities include project and program management, installing large-scale equipment, and designing and developing capital projects. My job profile includes regular simulations to optimize lead times and ensure product line capacity. Contributing to developing new products and processes is also a crucial part of my job. Before Koch, I worked as a project engineer for Cornerstones Automation Systems.
