Course Series
in Data Science

Part-time, in-class or online study tailored for:

  • data analysts

The need for data sci­ence and ana­lyt­ics skills is grow­ing rapid­ly for a wide range of pro­fes­sions in all sec­tors. Our Data Sci­ence series will pro­vide you with the knowl­edge and skills need­ed to per­form data analy­sis tasks.

This three-course series cov­ers top­ics such as prob­a­bil­i­ty and data dis­tri­b­u­tions, descrip­tive and infer­en­tial sta­tis­tics, mul­ti­vari­ate sta­tis­ti­cal tools, and R Lan­guage. All cours­es will be intro­duc­to­ry, with the aim to demys­ti­fy pro­gram­ming lan­guage and sta­tis­tics, and have a focus on under­stand­ing rather than sim­ply apply­ing con­cepts and tools.

This series is com­prised of three three-day cours­es, each of them designed to stand alone in pro­vid­ing spe­cif­ic data sci­ence skills. Cours­es can also be tak­en togeth­er to pro­vide stu­dents with a com­pre­hen­sive data sci­ence skill set.
