Python: Data, Science & Design

Spring 2019

Taught By: Jacob Koehler

Section: A

CRN: 7756

Credits: 3

This course aims to introduce students to the Python computing language. Students will write basic programs with Python, investigate the use of Python to perform data analysis (including machine learning and artificial intelligence), use Python to access and structure information from the web, and also use Python to build and deploy web based applications. The course will teach these skills through three projects 1) analysis of public policing data 2) a sentiment analysis and topic modeling project using news articles and social media data, and 3) design and deployment of a personal web application. No prior experience with the Python computing language is required, however students are expected to own a laptop computer, or check one out from the University and bring it with them to every class.
