Discover data analytics and learn how to process and interpret satellite data to track hurricanes.
Regularly causing major global destruction, hurricanes are intense storms with devastating winds. Space-enabled data allows us to observe, monitor, and track hurricanes from a safe distance. Although easily accessible, large volumes of satellite data have been left untouched due to a lack of skilled data analysts.
On this course, you’ll explore the key concepts of data science required to process, analyse, and interpret large datasets. You’ll use tutorials and case studies to understand the possibilities within these datasets, and learn how to interpret satellite data beyond the course.
In this course, you will learn about some of the different types of data and computational methods involved in stratified healthcare and precision medicine. You will have a hands-on experience of working with such data. You will learn from leaders in the field about successful case studies. This free 5-week course will run with an intake each month so you have an opportunity to enroll throughout the year.
‘The Power of Data Science in the Health and Care Industry’ is an online course which targets health and care practitioners and project and change managers. On this course you’ll learn how to make the most of data. Find out what data should be gathered, best practices around data governance, what tools and techniques will help you manage and analyse data, and how to work collaboratively with data scientists and digital teams.
This course, targeting gaming industry experts and the gaming-interested alike, aims to teach participant’s how to store and effectively analyse these data goldmines by drawing on Scottish gaming case stories and the technical background.
MSc Data Engineering
An online learning course created as collaboration between Edinburgh Napier University, and The Data Lab.
The programme is aimed at graduates and practitioners with a background in business, quantitative science, or computing who wish to develop into effective Data Engineers with the business understandings and analytical, statistical and computing skills to contribute to this vital area for contemporary commercial and public sectors.
