This is the final course and project for the Applied Data Analytics Certificate (ADAC) from BCIT Computing. Students must have com pleted all specific prerequisites in order to register. COMP 4254 is built on top of: Python Fundamentals for Data Analysis, Data Analytics Fundamentals, and Advanced Statistical Techniques for Data Analytics. Students must have experience using data visualization tools, be able to use R and apply statistical methods with algorithms in order to develop their final project. COMP 4254 is a BYOD (bring your own device) course, participants must provide their own current model PC with an i5 or higher equivalent processor, 8 GB of RAM minimum, 256 GB minimum storage and high-speed internet access. Participation is mandatory and students can expect a minimum of 3 hours per week online in real time via the BCIT Learning Hub plus using two-way audio and video. Attendance is required during scheduled class hours and students should expect an additional 10+ hours for reading and homework each week. Building on statistics for data mining, students will make use of previous tools and technologies used through out the program. A combination of R, or Python, and Data Analysis tools and visualization techniques will be integrated into an advanced data analytics project. There is an introduction to data analytics techniques with Big Data. Labs and exercises use Python and Apache Spark for data mining with a focus on Business Intelligence and Big Data. Participants will work with a variety of structured and unstructured data sources to model, analyze and visualize data. Upon successful completion of COMP 4254 students will be able to develop an advanced project from start-to-finish which includes data preparation, Business Intelligence and an in-depth analysis on a broad range of data sources.
