Data science is a new emerging multidisciplinary domain that is focused on applying Data for understanding and drawing specific conclusions in many sectors such as business, medical, financial, manufacturing, etc. The key skills required in this field are the ability to hypothesise, and improve business outcomes based on initial analysis with continued proof points, through continuously testing those base conclusions and the iterative improvements to ensure the conclusions reached continue to be correct and true.
The Applied Data Science course aims to introduce students to a blend of Data Science concepts and technologies in order to enable them to work with everyday Data related issues analytically. Students will gain experience of the entire Data Science supply chain, namely Data collection, processing, analysis and visualisation, using an innovative hands-on practical Data Science Group project.
This course could be taken after the companion course "An Overview of Data Science".
