Course Description

  • What are the course objectives?

    This Data Science Capstone course end project will validate your expertise as a job-ready data scientist. You will learn to apply the knowledge, skills and capabilities your learned in the Data Science Master’s Program and build a project on your own from start to finish. You will gain real-world exposure to modern data science challenges and learn to build your own models to solve them and make better data-driven decisions. You will also have the flexibility to choose your own domain and technology stack for your project.

  • What skills will you learn with this Data Science Capstone Project?

    Simplilearn’s online Data Science Capstone course will bring you through the data science decision cycle, including data processing, building a model and representing results. The project milestones are as follows:

    • Data Processing - In this step, you will apply various data processing techniques to make raw data meaningful.
    • Model Building - You will leverage techniques such as regression and decision trees to build machine learning models that enable accurate and intelligent predictions. You may explore Python, R or SAS to build your model. You will follow the complete model-building exercise from data split to test and training and validating data using the k-fold cross-validation process.
    • Model Fine-tuning - You will apply various techniques to improve the accuracy of your model and select the champion model that provides the best accuracy.
    • Dashboarding and Representing Results - As the last step, you will be required to export your results into a dashboard with meaningful insights using Tableau
