This course introduces students to more advanced data programming techniques. It teaches students to write a descriptive analysis of a given data set and derive programmatically meaningful observations (e.g. summary statistics).
The course is taught through a combination of lectures and interactive, hands-on labs in Python, introducing students to modern data analytics libraries.
Lab sessions give students the opportunity to sharpen their skillset with practical problems.
