In this interactive 3 month LIVE ONLINE course, you will learn how to:

  • Effectively program in the widely-used Python open-source language
  • Use the NumPy library, the essential package for scientific computing with Python that allows, linear algebra, Fourier transform, sophisticated broadcasting functions, and integration with C/C++ and Fortran code, among other functions
  • Make use of the Jupyter Notebooks environment which allows you to perform data cleaning and transformation, numerical simulation, statistical modelling, data visualization, machine learning, and much more
  • Use the Pandas module which enables Python to be a powerful and productive data analysis environment with high-level data structures and functions designed to make working with structured or tabular data fast, easy, and expressive
  • Create data visualizations with matplotlib, Python’s most popular library for generating plots and other two-dimensional data visualizations


Course Details

In this 12-week “live online” interactive program you will learn how to use the popular programming language Python from a basic to an intermediate level. No prior knowledge of programming is necessary, although it would prove beneficial. The use of the NumPy library, pandas, matplotlib, and Jupyter Notebooks will be covered to give you a thorough understanding of their applications for data science and engineering purposes.


The instructor will teach you via live and interactive sessions delivered completely online. You will gain access to the recordings to review them as often as you want. There will be weekly exercises to bolster your learning through actual programming application. Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive an Engineering Institute of Technology digital certificate for your professional development records.
