This two-day course will equip you with the skills to perform statistical analysis, interpret and visualise complex datasets and prepare for AI modelling.

The increasing integration of AI into engineering is revolutionising the way we analyse data, make predictions, and optimise processes.  Successfully harnessing AI's power in the engineering applications require a specific skillset, including proficiency in Python, a deep understanding of AI methodologies and the ability to interpret complex engineering datasets.

This course will support you in gaining essential data science skills, tailored for engineering applications in SQL and Python. You'll enhance your analytical capabilities through statistical analysis and data interpretation, alongside learning to apply machine learning techniques to complex engineering problems.

Pre-requisite course

To book onto this course, you must complete Foundation Python.
