Course Description

Using real data sets from open source data repositories such as data.gov, the DC Open Data Catalog, and Kaggle.com, students create a data product to address a real-world problem. Students work in a data science team to apply the data science pipeline (data ingestion, data munging and wrangling, computation and analysis, modeling and application, and reporting and visualization) to a real-world problem or issue. The course involves the practical application and presentation of concepts and tools learned during the core courses. All completed pieces of the project will be hosted online to help students build a data science project portfolio.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of the course, students will:

  • Apply the knowledge, skills, and abilities applicable to the data science pipeline to a real world problem and data set
  • Work in a data science team to create a data product 
  • Present a completed project and product to faculty and peers
  • Build a data science project portfolio
