Certificate in Data Analytics - Computer Modeling for Scientists CSCI 2202   Computer Modeling for Scientists
This is an introductory, project based, programming course for science majors. The course focuses on programming techniques useful for students in their scientific pursuits. The course introduces basic programming and then goes on to guide students through using system simulations, modelling and data-driven analysis of models. Working with web-based data archives will be emphasized. Students will gain experience with implementing stochastic models of systems of interest. Multiple computational tools and their appropriate use will be used through the course. Examples and projects will be taken primarily from the fields of biology, genetics, neuroscience, psychology, earth sciences, chemistry among others.
PREREQUISITES: Students must have successfully completed a minimum of 3.0 credit hours in Math at the 1000 level.
