To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
This hands-on course follows on from MATH 1060- Statistics for Data Analysis and introduces the students to many of the techniques used in the field of data analytics. This introduction will enable students to use general classification and predictive analysis methods. Methods appropriate for scientific data are also discussed. Labs and projects using the open source statistical analysis tool, R, build on the skills learned in Math 1060 to apply these advanced techniques. Upon successful completion, students will be able to effectively analyze large and small data sets while adhering to sound statistical principles. This course is required for the Applied Data Analytics Certificate offered by BCIT Computing.
This class meets once per week for 3 hours in a virtual classroom AND requires an additional 1 hour per week as an online component. Course is 48 hours - 36 in class and 12 online. Note: No class on Saturday, Oct. 10th (Thanksgiving).
Important course information will be sent to you prior to your course start
date. Check your myBCIT email account to
