Practical Data Science

offered by NOVA Data School

Subjects: ,


This 12-week, part-time course utilizes four scenario-based mini-projects and a final capstone project to sharpen students’ skills and practice their use in situations that closely mimic business environments. By working in small groups with an instructor, students will practice applying data science tools and methodologies while learning management and communication skills.

Students will go through the entire life cycle of data analysis from data collection and cleaning to choosing an optimal machine learning or statistical model. They will learn how to use modern tools of data science such as Python, R, cloud architecture and they will learn how to adopt those tools for a problem at hand.
