Dig smarter with big data

12 July 2021

We have introduced a new skill set for anyone responsible for processing data sets, or responsible for data mining.

Lecturer Dr Maryam Shahabi, who has published more than 20 academic papers and conference proceedings about data analysis, machine learning and artificial intelligence, said the Applied Data Analysis skill set is suited to people working in a medium to large organisation and responsible for processing data sets, data mining, or machine learning activities.

“If you’re a creative thinker and curious about the hidden insights in the mountains of data we now have available, our skill set will show you how to turn that raw data into powerful stories that can be your businesses’ most valuable asset,” Dr Shahabi said. “The more data you have, the better business decisions you can make.”
 
Designed for novices and those wanting to go to the next level in their career as a data analyst, the course starts from the basics, such as Microsoft Excel, working up to Python, Panda, NumPy and Matplotlib - industry-standard tools to collate, analyse, and visualise data.

Students will also gain a thorough understanding of SQL, one of the most popular tools for analysing data, as well as Power BI and Azure from Microsoft.
 
At just four hours a week for two semesters, these evening classes are an excellent option for those working full-time. Completion of this skill set leads to a Diploma of Information Technology (Advanced Programming).

Classes will run for one night per week over two semesters and starts Wednesday 28 July, 5.30pm - 9.30pm.
