Supervised Machine Learning with Python

Course Description

Data analytics has transformed modern business, and machine learning has emerged as a core competency. In this seven-week hands-on certificate course, you will learn how to perform supervised machine learning using Python, one of the most popular languages in data science and predictive analytics.

You will build both classification and regression models, learn how to test model performance, understand how to prevent overfitting, and explore feature engineering strategies.

What to Expect

You will receive weekly lectures and course work that you can complete on your own schedule, which will be reviewed by the instructor. For your capstone project, you will build a classification or regression model using a provided data set. You will finish the course with complete code examples that you can use and build on in your own work.

You should expect to spend 4-6 hours per week for the duration of this course, beginning on Sept 30.

Each week you will:

  • View
    Lecture
  • Complete
    Coursework
  • Submit to
    Instructor
  • Receive
    Feedback
4–6 hours per week

This course includes a final capstone project and all students who complete assignments on time will earn a certificate of completion from TDWI.
