Course Introduction

Unlike the usual short courses where participants learn skills and concepts from the course, the proposed project-focused course seeks to offer project-solution training complemented with classroom training in data wrangling, analytics and modelling techniques. Participants will be guided to establish a suitably scoped data analytics project and will also be guided on undertaking solution steps, in the project. The training will provide a step by step exposure on applying the Microsoft Excel & KNIME related skills and concepts to realise successful analytics of the data studied.  

Course Objective

1. Enables participants to apply knowledge in a step-by-step process, required for handling analytics projects.
2. Equips participants with necessary skills in Microsoft Excel for data wrangling, data cleaning, transformation and conditioning.
3. Facilitates participants to use an appropriate data analytics tool, like KNIME, for implementation of data modelling and machine learning techniques to perform analysis and inference based on modelling outcomes. 
4. Enables participants to interpret results, establish process insights and make critical decisions.
