About the Course

Data Science is the connection point of statistics, analytics, programming, optimisation, visualisation and decision making.

Data Analysis is a process of gathering, inspecting, cleansing, transforming, and modelling data to discover useful information, suggest conclusions, and support decision-making. With the development of software tools and data collection techniques, data and data analytics have become the way companies and industries are doing business. However, there are both rising demand and salaries for data scientists and a significant shortage of trained professionals. Applying statistical methods without complying with governing principles can lead to unwanted results. In this Big Data Capstone virtual training course, the delegates will assume the role of a Data Scientist working for a startup, following the Data Science methodology involving data collection, data wrangling, exploratory data analysis, data visualisation, model development, model evaluation, and reporting your results to stakeholders.

The objective of this training is to prepare the delegates, as they will be working on the actual project, to identify all the aspects of the Big Data lifecycle, get the relevant data sources, and cleans the data from any errors, biases and outliers which can skew or derail the project as a whole. The example project within the virtual training course will be chosen depending on the delegates' work environment and industry.

Core Objectives

Delegates will achieve the following objectives:

  • Identify the sources of data related to the Data Science project
  • Know how to collect, import, transform, visualise, and model data with Python and R
  • Acquire the knowledge needed to implement the Data Science projects
  • Learn the Data Analytics models and lifecycle,
  • Adopt the use of Python and R for clustering, association, regression analysis
  • Use Python and R for text analytics
Training Approach

This training course is a mixture of lecture, video presentation, trainer-facilitated workshop exercises, and case study analysis organised through a Virtual Learning Platform anytime and anywhere.
