I&C SCI X427.12

Python for Data Analysis

A required course in the Python for Data Science, Web and Core Programming Specialized Studies Program.

Python for Data Analysis is a course for students with some experience using Python who want to learn how to import and analyze data using the popular programming language. Students can immediately use what they have learned to ingest data, produce plots and analysis, and fit models. Note that not everything with-in the python language will be covered (such as user interfaces, web services, and object oriented programming). The main python libraries introduced will be numpy, matplotlib, pandas, and scikit-learn. Major topics include: how to import data and manipulate it efficiently using numpy, how to produce plots and data visualizations with matplotlib, how to run statistical analysis using pandas, and how to build predictive models scikit-learn. A final project will help to tie the main concepts together. Additional topics include: how to use eclipse, a very handy development environment!
