The course provides an immersive introduction to data science for scientists and engineers who are in technical leadership positions and recognize the need to lead their organizations into a data-driven future. Through lectures, hands-on exercises, and project assignments, the course illustrates the fundamental concepts of data science and introduces the students to the skills required to apply the tools and techniques through the data science process to problems in support of fulfilling mission objectives. The course exposes the students to data management, data science tools and techniques, the basics of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), creating and delivering data-driven solutions, evaluating their efficacy, policy, and ethical considerations. Familiarity with desktop operating systems and software is required for this course. While students will perform hands-on coding exercises, only basic familiarity with software coding concepts is required.
