The Introduction to Data Science class will survey the foundational topics in data science, namely:
- Data Manipulation
- Data Analysis with Statistics and Machine Learning
- Data Communication with Information Visualization
- Data at Scale -- Working with Big Data
The class will focus on breadth and present the topics briefly instead of focusing on a single topic in depth. This will give you the opportunity to sample and apply the basic techniques of data science.
This course is also a part of our Data Analyst Nanodegree.
Why Take This Course?
You will have an opportunity to work through a data science project end to end, from analyzing a dataset to visualizing and communicating your data analysis.
Through working on the class project, you will be exposed to and understand the skills that are needed to become a data scientist yourself.
