The Computational Data Analysis minor will provide students with the necessary mathematical and statistical background to develop and apply various data analysis techniques to real world datasets. The minor has three main objectives related to knowledge, skills, and application:
- provide students with foundational knowledge of topics such as probability and statistics, algorithms and data structures to solve data analysis problems arising in practical applications,
- develop students' skill in software development techniques using one or more high level programming languages relevant to data analytics,
- enable students to effectively apply computational methods to solve exemplar data analysis problems arising in relevant applications.
