Overview

This foundational course provides a high-level overview of essential Data Science areas. A basic understanding of Data Science from business and technology perspectives is provided, along with an overview of common benefits, challenges, and adoption issues.In this course, you will learn the foundations for Data Science and also learn to use Python - a powerful open source tool. You will come across interesting concepts like exploratory data analysis, statistics fundamentals, hypothesis testing, regression & classification modeling techniques and get introduced to machine learning. The course end project and interview prep will make you industry ready.

Named the sexiest career of the 21st century by none other than the Harvard Business Review, the demand for Data Scientists is rapidly increasing year-on-year. It has been proven that data scientists earn base salaries up to 36% higher than other predictive analytics professionals. Glassdoor reports that the national average salary for a Data Scientist is $1,39,840 in the United States.

KnowledgeHut’s Data Science Foundation course will helps freshers and seasoned professionals alike to gain a deep understanding of the subject and advance your career.
