Program Outline and Highlights

Data analysis using statistical techniques is a survival skill in data science. Initially, this program helps students build a strong data analysis foundation, with a special emphasis on using relevant statistical tools, and data visualization using various graphs, charts, and pivot tables in Excel. Students are then introduced to Python programming. They learn to use Python to write programs to do statistical analysis using libraries such as NumPy and Pandas. Further on, they learn to query relational databases, to process and manage data using ETL processes, create data models and visualize data using Tableau. Data modeling and data-based storytelling are two key aspects by which big data is leveraged for decision-making. Overall, students become competent at data analysis, visualization, modeling and forecasting, and communicating and collaborating with all stakeholders.
