COURSE CODE: COMP 3605
COURSE TITLE: Introduction to Data Analytics
SEMESTER: 1
CREDITS: 3
PRE-REQUISITES: MATH 2250
COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course provides an introduction to various computational and data mining techniques that are used within the computer science discipline to facilitate intelligent decision making and analysis within systems. The course focuses on providing a practical understanding of a number of computational intelligence techniques without over-burdening the student with the theoretical foundation that many of these techniques possess. The course provides a foundational understanding of topics that will be useful for further work in data mining analysis and machine learning. The course will utilize an appropriate programming language (e.g., python) and available software tools (e.g., scikit-learn, scipy and pandas) to give students practical experience utilizing these algorithms to solve real world problems.
