The course enables you to learn fundamental concepts of statistics along with its practicality using Python. The course has been specifically designed to fulfil the basic needs concerning elementary concepts of statistics and getting started with Python. You will master the technique of how Python is deployed for Data Science.
Data Science is all about science behind data. The Statistical and research methodology concepts help in understanding the science behind the data. Additionally, the requirements of Data Scientists are taking boom therefore right knowledge acquisition at right time becomes a principal key behind learning this course
