Programming, data extraction and visualisation


The aim of this course is to equip the students with basic tools in programming, data extraction and visualization of datasets. Using a learning-by-doing approach, we solve basic problems encountered in data science using Python. The course will be using a blended learning approach with a focus on solving practical problems under guidance by teachers. Data examples for business applications will be given.
