Project-Based Programming for Research|
Spring 2020 not offered
|Certificates: Applied Data Science|
This project-based course will introduce students to programming in the context of research design, data visualization, and analysis of big data, focusing on the essential concepts and tools needed to carry out research and problem solving and to keep abreast of new technologies. We will survey these topics by combining scientific problems and modern programming approaches, and students will learn the fundamentals of programming required for structuring and conducting research.
