[Coursera] Practical Data Science with MATLAB Specialization
About this Specialization
Do you find yourself in an industry or field that increasingly uses data to answer questions? Are you working with an overwhelming amount of data and need to make sense of it? Do you want to avoid becoming a full-time software developer or statistician to do meaningful tasks with your data?
Completing this specialization will give you the skills and confidence you need to achieve practical results in Data Science quickly. Being able to visualize, analyze, and model data are some of the most in-demand career skills from fields ranging from healthcare, to the auto industry, to tech startups.
This specialization assumes you have domain expertise in a technical field and some exposure to computational tools, such as spreadsheets. To be successful in completing the courses, you should have some background in basic statistics (histograms, averages, standard deviation, curve fitting, interpolation).
Throughout this specialization, you will be using MATLAB. MATLAB is the go-to choice for millions of people working in engineering and science, and provides the capabilities you need to accomplish your data science tasks. You will be provided with free access to MATLAB for the duration of the specialization to complete your work.
Applied Learning Project
You’ll apply your new skills on several real-world examples including: analyzing costs associated with severe weather events, predicting flight delays, and building machine learning models. The final capstone project will provide you the opportunity to apply concepts from all the courses to gain insight from raw data and to build predictive models.
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you’d like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You’ll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you’ll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you’ll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
