Description

Python for Data Science • Start a Career with Python

February 17th - March 24th,

Saturdays, from 10.00am to 1.00pm. Total in-Class Hours: 18

What this program is about:

Our program serves as the foundation for many well-known concepts of data science. We teach practical techniques and algorithms for extracting and studying useful knowledge from data. This course is not a theory class as we believe there are many ways to learn statistics and analytics concepts on your own. We are providing students with a set of practical tools for data science and knowledge on how to apply Python to solve linear algebra, statistics, and probability problems. This course is designed to fill the gap between theoretical academic research and the needs of the industry. We will start with a crash course on the basics of the Python programming language and then learn how to use Python to turn raw data into insight and knowledge.

What to expect from this program:

Fundamental introduction to Data Science using Python programming language, practical application of different statistical, analytical and linear algebra models to a variety of data science projects, and feeling comfortable enough to apply acquired knowledge on your own seeking a junior data scientist position.

  • Discover best practices for data analysis and start on the path to becoming a data scientist
  • Get comfortable using Python to build statistical and analytical models
  • Learn and practice essential tools for data analytics: NumPy, Pandas and Matplotlib
  • Learn to find solutions to problems by analyzing data using appropriate tools
  • Master your analytical skills by working on real life projects
  • Explore graphical techniques to see what your data looks like
  • Implement the core Data Science techniques of Linear Algebra, Probability, Gradient Descent, and Linear Regression
  • Build your own analytical tools with Python from scratch
  • Become familiar with industry standards and learn the best practices for writing code
  • By the end of this course, you will have a Data Analytics Project to present to potential employers

Who is this program for:

Novice and people with no previous programming experience, seeking a comprehensive course to enter the field of data and analytics and become data scientists.

How this program is organized:

Lecture on new topics takes about 90 minutes and starts at 10.00am. After lecture, students start working on new exercises with instructor guidance. Around 1.00pm students present and discuss their work with instructors, learn alternative solutions, and best practices from instructors and invited data scientist professionals.

Why Python:

Many other programming solutions can be used for Data Science, however we chose high-level programming language Python because it is easy to learn if you are new to programming and it is in high demand.
