Python for Data Science (UT-PY-4DS)

Course Description

Data Science is the critical skill of the modern workforce. Data science skills allow for the extraction of key insights and relevant knowledge from large datasets. This data science training course is for Python developers who want to learn how to use the key libraries in the Python Data Science ecosystem. This course covers NumPy for numerical data processing, Pandas for data analysis, and Matplotlib and Seaborn for quick visualizations and statistical reporting. The training is all conducted in a modern Jupyter Notebook format, allowing students to read and write code directly within our training notebooks.

You’ll learn everything you need to know for the full data science tech stack required to work at the world’s top companies. This Python for Data Science course takes a structured approach that will guide you through understanding not just how to use data science, but why we use them by providing a balance between practical real world case studies and mathematical theory behind the data science algorithms.

Please note, this course is able to be offered in either 3 full day sessions or 5 evening sessions. See the schedule below.

This course includes 6-months access to the full course content in on-demand format to support post-class reference and review.
