Well it is certainly possible to go from being a Software Engineer to becoming a Data Scientist and people have done it, although it is by no means easy. |
You would need to fully understand core concepts and techniques in data science and this could be gained by for example starting courses online. One could learn python for data science on courses on Udemy for instance, however this is easier said then done. It can be a time consuming process, especially when you have a job in a totally different field. You would need to be pretty determined to get through it.
As well as courses one should use more resources and join relevant communities and importantly gain practical experience in the form of developing projects.
