Python is a general-purpose programming language and its popularity is growing. Companies worldwide use Python to harvest insights from data to get an edge over their competitors. Unlike any other Python course, this programme focuses on Python specifically for data science. You will learn how to store and manipulate data as well as useful tools to start your own analysis.
The Python for Data Science course covers the fundamental concepts of programming with Python and explains data analytics, machine learning, data visualisation, web scraping and natural language processing. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of the various packages and libraries required to perform the data analysis aspects.
The course covers the following topics:
The course also includes real-world, industry-based projects. Successful evaluation of one of the following projects is a part of the certification eligibility criteria:
Amazon, one of the leading US-based e-commerce companies, recommends products within the same category to customers based on their activity and reviews on other similar products. Amazon would like to improve this recommendation engine by predicting ratings for the non-rated products and add them to recommendations accordingly.
Predict accurate sales for 45 stores of Walmart, one of the US-based leading retail stores, considering the impact of promotional markdown events. Check if macroeconomic factors like CPI, unemployment rate, etc. have an impact on sales.
Comcast, one of the US-based global telecommunication companies wants to improve customer experience by identifying and acting on problem areas that lower customer satisfaction if any. The company is also looking for key recommendations that can be implemented to deliver the best customer experience.
IBM, one of the leading US-based IT companies, would like to identify the factors that influence attrition of employees. Based on the parameters identified, the company would also like to build a logistics regression model that can help predict if an employee will churn or not.
