Summer Bootcamp ‘Data Science in R’

School of Data Kyrgyzstan in partnership with the American University of Central Asia is delighted to announce summer bootcamp ‘Data Science in R’.

R is rapidly becoming the leading language in data science and statistics. Today, R is the tool of choice for data science professionals in every industry and field. Whether you are a full-time number cruncher or just the occasional data analyst, R will suit your needs.

This course consists of two week-long modules.

Module 1: 10 June -14 June

Introduction to R programming course will help you master the basics of R. We will cover its basic syntax, making you ready to undertake your own first data analysis using R. No prior knowledge in programming or data science is required since an introduction to statistics and data science will be also provided.

Starting from variables and basic operations, you will eventually learn how to handle data structures such as vectors, matrices, data frames and lists. In the final section, you will dive deeper into the graphical capabilities of R, and create your own stunning data visualizations.

What is unique in this course is that we will gradually build a full-fledged data science project you will be able to re-use at work or during your academic studies.

Who is this course for: Beginners with little or no previous programming and Data Science experience

Fees: $200. Special price for AUCA students: $150

Prerequisites:  Intermediate English Level

Requirements:

  • laptop Windows 7 or above/Linux/Mac, CPU min Intel I3, 8 Giga Ram.
  • all software used in this course is available for free.

Module 2: 17 June – 21 June

In this course, we will assume the student has already a good/intermediate knowledge of R and we will start
delving into complex machine learning algorithms and processes like:

1) Advanced EDA
2) Feature Engineering including automatic feature engineering
3) Advanced algorithms like Xgboost, Neural Networks, Random Forest Trees
4) Hyperparameter Optimizations
5) Data Science pipeline

This course will provide all the tools and skills needed to run a professional data science project.

Who is this course for: Graduates of the first module and people with previous knowledge of R

Fees: $200. Special price for AUCA students: $150

Requirements:
