SIT Learning becomes Constructor LearningRead more

From our founding as Propulsion Academy in 2016 to our acquisition by SIT last year, today we welcome our new brand name: Constructor Learning. Constructor Learning is part of the Constructor Group, initially named Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT). The organization was founded in 2019 by Dr. Serg Bell, a long-time entrepreneur and investor in technology and education. Dedicated to creating knowledge through science, education and technology, the ecosystem combines a comprehensive educational offering that spans the entire learning lifecycle, from K-12 to a private university and executive courses, next-generation research capabilities and commercial activities for technological innovation. Founded and headquartered in Schaffhausen, SIT has rapidly grown since its creation, thanks to organic growth and acquisitions. As it has become a global organization with a footprint in more than 15 countries and a worldwide network of researchers, professors, investors, clients, and alumni, the brand had to be rethought to reflect this expansion better and unify the entire ecosystem under one name: Constructor.

Can you introduce yourself? What were you doing before you joined SIT Learning?

My name is Lingxuan. Before I joined the Data Science Bootcamp, I was a Ph.D. student majoring in transportation planning and management. I studied transportation for many years in China. After graduating, I decided to move to Zurich. Thus, starting my new life and career in Switzerland. 


Why did you do the Data Science Bootcamp? What was your motivation for doing the Data Science Bootcamp?

"I decided to research some online data science courses, but I feel like most of them just give you a piece of the knowledge. I was specifically looking for a program that offered systemic learning. Then I found SIT Learning. Their unique curriculum is why I choose the Data Science Bootcamp."


What did you do after the Bootcamp? Was it easy for you to find a job?

"I studied transportation for many years and have a lot of experience working on traffic projects. Some of these projects were related to data science, so I had experience working with data and knew a bit of coding.
So, I found a job quickly. Pretty much right after I completed the Bootcamp. Now I work as a data scientist for a start-up that focuses on cyber security. We think like an attacker to build attack models to help companies to improve their cyber security."

Thanks a lot for the interview, Lingxuan. We wish you all the best for your professional and private future.
