About

Data is quickly becoming our world’s most valuable commodity. As its importance grows, it’s never been more important to explore, understand and communicate data concepts as part of one’s daily work. 

Many companies have the facilities to gather and analyse data and utilise it for making business-related decisions. However, there are multiple obstacles for incorporating Data Science tools and using Data Science to its full potential – mostly due to existing gaps in knowledge and understanding.

This unique course offers the tools needed to use data to its full potential – Data exploration, manipulation, visualisation, modelling, prediction and classification. The course aims to provide the knowledge and tools required to analyse data and extract insights immediately upon completion, including: formulating goals and planning approach, required resources and independent ability to use relevant Python libraries. The course emphasises hands-on practice and puts practical exercises at the core of the learning.

We offer a unique opportunity for tech professionals to gain valuable skills which can be incorporated into your professional life immediately, and can provide a foundation for future study and professional growth.
