MBR: Prep-course on data science with DataCamp
We are witnessing a fundamental shift into big data and programming in our research routine. Many of the MBR courses assume a specific knowledge of Python. With this course, students have the opportunity to learn in advance how to code in Python, so that they can exploit the MBR courses' contents fully.
The course consists of a kick-off and online sessions devoted to learning to code with Python. After having completed the mandatory online course, students have the opportunity to build their curriculum.
Students enrolled in the course have access for six months to 300 hours of data science videos and coding exercises on DataCamp. Students should choose specialized courses to leverage their skills in data manipulation, visualization, and analysis. DataCamp offers a broad range of courses that cover programming, statistics, machine learning, finance models, etc. The online classes are not limited to Python, but span to R, SQL, GIT, and Shell.
