 In this data science course, you will be learning 3 important skills to becoming a data scientist.


# The software used in the course is web-based, no other specific software environment need be installed. 



Python has been ranked the top programming language in 2021 by IEEE Spectrum. IEEE Spectrum’s rankings are one measure of what languages are worth investing time in to learn.

Python is so popular because it is easy to read, understand and use. This makes it a great place to start for people new to programming. With basic python, you can then move on to use the powerful data science packages available.


Data preparation, visualization, and analysis

Go through basic statistics, then move on to use Pandas, a Python library, to prepare your data for analysis.
Communicate insights by creating diagrams and charts that describe large amounts of data but are easy to understand.

Machine learning and AI

Next, learn about supervised and unsupervised machine learning. Use machine learning, Python libraries again, to go through data and try to predict future values or extract insights. Next, try different libraries to see which does predictions best.

5 ★

I attended Python for Data Science conducted by Emarsity in Dec 2021. It was a 3 days course followed by a quiz.
The material provided is comprehensive. The instructor is knowledgeable and gives us a good grasp of the material. The course is useful for anyone who wants to gain understanding of Python. It will not make one a Python expert but enough to give a keen learner a good headstart.
Thank you, Emarsity and instructor Chirag Desai
