ECE 2720 - Data Science for Engineers

(crosslisted) ENGRD 2720  
     
Fall, Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: MATH 1920  and either CS 1110  or CS 1112 . Corequisite: MATH 2940 .

Fall: V. Krishnamurthy; Spring: A. Wagner.

An introduction to data science for engineers. The data science workflow: acquisition and cleansing, exploration and modeling, prediction and decision making, visualization and presentation. Tools for data science including numerical optimization, the Discrete Fourier Transform, Principal Component Analysis, and probability with a focus on statistical inference and correlation methods. Techniques for different steps in the workflow including outlier detection, filtering, regression, classification, and techniques for avoiding overfitting. Methods for combining domain-agnostic data analysis tools with the types of domain-specific knowledge that are common in engineering. Ethical considerations. Optional topics include classification via neural networks, outlier detection, and Markov chains. Programming projects in Python.
