Course Detail

Program Overview
The HarvardX Data Science program prepares you with the necessary knowledge base and useful skills to tackle real-world data analysis challenges. The program covers concepts such as probability, inference, regression, and machine learning.
Throughout the program, R software environment will be used. You will learn R, statistical concepts and data analysis techniques simultaneously. You can better retain R knowledge when you learn how to solve a specific problem. Furthermore, HarvardX has partnered with DataCamp for all assignments, which use code checking technology that will permit you to get hands-on practice during the courses.

Participant's Testimonial
1.This course has helped me gain in-depth knowledge on each topic with hands-on training. Course structure is awesome and allows flexibility to plan our own schedule. Discussion panel on each module helped me to resolve queries from self and peers. One of the best courses in the field for data science!
