Seminar Content

Data science is an emerging field that combines analytics, technology, and business understanding in order to solve complex business questions by leveraging data. This seminar aims to give students a hands-on introduction to the field.

The data science seminar provides students with the chance to carry out an end-to-end data science project in cooperation with Accenture. Students will be able to choose from different use cases for which to build a prototypical analytics solution to a specific business question. To achieve this, training sessions will be conducted with technology partners (Cloudera, SAS) where students will practice data preparation and analytics. Fundamental topics such as data preprocessing, analysis and modelling, as well as interpretation, will be covered. The language of instruction is English.
