Welcome to the IIT Kanpur Intensive Training School (ITS) on PYTHON for Data Science (DS) and Data Analytics (DA) . Data Science provides some of the most promising career opportunities for students/ professionals and Data Science skills are highly sought-after by industry. This cutting-edge school will introduce participants to the rigorous theory, algorithms and scientific methods to derive actionable insights from large datasets. The school also includes extensive assisted PYTHON programming projects where participants will gain hands-on experience in data analysis, exploration and visualization using practical datasets and the latest PYTHON packages such as NUMPY, LINALG, MATPLOTLIB, PANDAS, SEABORN. The school also includes problem solving sessions to prepare for tests/ job interviews in DS and DA.

All modules will be held on evenings and weekends for the convenience of participants. The extensive projects and PYTHON programming for DATA SCIENCE (DS), DATA ANALYTICS (DA) is of significant value to participants of all backgrounds.
