Description

Introduction to Data Science for Pre-U students (Ages 18-21)

Data Science with Python

Prerequisites: Pre-U Python Intensive Coding Camp or relevant Python experience (call us to find out more)

Data Science involves using computers to extract insights from data, enabling us to make better decisions in every imaginable situation. When done right, data science is the foundation for many of the cutting edge technologies emerging around us today like self-driving cars, chatbots, robo-trading systems and world-champion beating chess AIs.

As a discipline, Data Science lies at the intersection of Computer Science and Statistics. For this coding course, we will assume that you have a mathematical/statistical background equivalent to having taken one of the following:

  • the H2 Mathematics subject at the GCE"A" levels

  • the Mathematics HL subject for the International Baccalaureate (IB)

  • a course in basics statistics at one of the local Polytechnics. Examples of courses which satisfy this requirement include:

If you do not have this background, you may want to consider our 1-day Computational Statistics for Machine Learning course where we will cover this material (please contact us to find out more).

Our offering features small class sizes with an instructor-to-student ratio of 1:5. Instructors hold Masters and PhD degrees in engineering and statistics from world-class universities including Imperial College, Stanford and UC Berkeley and have worked in quantitative, data driven roles at top research institutions and Fortune 500 companies. Instructors are full-time at SG Code Campus and have had extensive experience teaching coding in a small classroom setting - each has individually taught coding to more than 100 unique Secondary School and Pre-U students in 2018, delivering a range of theoretical and applied courses in C++, Java, JavaScript & Python.

The course targets a Pre-U audience - if you are currently a university student or a working professional, you might find some of the training programmes offered by the other partners listed on the Shopee NDSC website more appropriate.


Course Outline

1. Summary Statistics with numpy
2. Data Wrangling with pandas
3. Data Visualization with matplotlib
4. Linear and Logistic Regression with scikit-learn
5. Tuning and Model Selection
6. Regression vs Classification
7. Solve real-world data-science problems on Kaggle

Course Schedule

This is a 16 hour course. Lessons will be conducted over 4 days, 12 - 15 Mar, 11:00am - 1:00pm and 2:00pm - 4:00pm, at our Bukit Timah Campus (#02-01A King's Arcade). There will be a 1-hour lunch break, from 1:00pm to 2:00pm. Lunch is not provided.

**Do note that we require a minimum of 2 Code Campers to start a class. You will be fully refunded if the class minimum is not fulfilled.

**Enjoy $270 of savings by purchasing this course together with our Pre-U Python Intensive Coding Camp!
