New Course: Practical Applications of Intelligent Data Analytics in Oil and Gas Industry

This extensive 16-hour course provides a fast-paced comprehensive discussion on the fundamentals of intelligent data analyses to help students and professionals with developing a clear understanding of the concepts, definitions, methods, and the applications in the oil and gas industry. No prior knowledge of data science or coding experience is required as the course goes over the entire data science process with a practical combination of theory and application. The course covers basic data analytics concepts, common machine learning algorithms, and introduction to open-source programming tools and libraries.
By successful completion of the course, participants will have practical experience as well as firm understanding of how machine-learning models can be applied to the engineering problems and energy industry data. With regard to deliverables, participants will learn how to leverage free open-source tools to create projects using the knowledge and expertise gained through the course.
