Course Value Proposition

This course is designed to give you the deep dive into the world of Data Science, focusing on the ability to analyze and convey data-driven facts in order to predict what happens next using modeling and pattern recognition. Our course prepares students to take full-time roles as Data Analysis, Data Scientists, Business Intelligence Analysts, and other roles that require advanced fluency with data. Our projects immerse students in formal data-driven scenarios in order to help them create a polished portfolio of work showcasing their ability to create and communicate machine learning insights.

What Our Students Learn

  • Data Analysis & Python:
    • Perform visual and statistical analysis on data using Python and its associated libraries and tools.
  • Machine Learning & Modeling Techniques:
    • Explore the differences between supervised and unsupervised learning through the application of various modeling techniques such as classification, regression, and clustering.
  • Git, SQL, & Relational Databases:
    • Gather, store, and organize your data using the data science toolkit: SQL, Git, and UNIX.
  • Critical Thinking & Synthesis:
    • Apply your analysis and modeling skills to real world data problems in fields like finance, marketing, and public policy.
  • Visualization, Presentation, & Reporting:
    • Learn to create reproducible presentations and reports and use data visualisation tools to present your findings to key stakeholders.

By the End of This Course, Students Will Be Able To:

  • Collect, extract, query, clean, and aggregate data for analysis
  • Perform visual and statistical analysis on data using Python and its associated libraries and tools.
  • Build, implement, and evaluate data science problems using appropriate machine learning models and algorithms
  • Use appropriate data visualization tools to communicate findings
  • Present clear and reproducible reports to stakeholders
  • Identify big data problems and understand how distributed systems and parallel computing technologies are solving these challenges.
  • Apply question, modeling, and validation problem solving processes to datasets from various industries to gain insight into real-world problems and solutions.
