IWKS 5200: Data Science for Innovators

Graduate version of IWKS 3200. Introduces techniques for capturing, processing, visualizing, and making meaning out of large health-focused datasets. With the exponential growth and decreasing cost of data collection tools such as genome sequencing, mobile phone health trackers, remote sensors, and electronic and personal medical records to name a few, the demand for data scientists to help find meaning in a sea of data has never been greater. This course will introduce the fundamentals of working with health data and large data sets, introduce widely-used data analysis and visualization tools, and culminate in a cumulative health data project. 

Prerequisite: Graduate standing, IWKS 5350 or some computing experience recommended
