Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics, University of Florida Gainesville, FL USA
The Short Course of Data Science will last for three weeks, from Jul. 23rd to Aug. 12th. This workshop provides students with an introduction to a wide range of concepts, theories, and practical techniques in data science. Data science or data-driven science is an interdisciplinary field about scientific methods, processes, and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured. Data and data analysis are essential components in a wide range of fields. It is critical for students to understand and gain practical experience with the entire life cycle of data, from data collection to data analysis to the dissemination and archiving of valuable results. In this workshop, students will be introduced to the broad landscape of data science. Students will learn to design and implement computerized databases for data collection, perform basic queries and prepare the data for analytical tasks, and understand basic data analytical skills. This workshop will be a foundation for students who are interested in becoming data scientists.
Importantly, the program provides the opportunity for students to visit UF research laboratories and work with the UF course staff. Students may discuss future MS and PhD opportunities with the department and university. Our program aims to help international students to learn theoretical knowledge, develop research ideas and skills, and improve their opportunities for successful application to US Graduate Schools. While on campus, students may meet with other faculty and visit ongoing classes and research labs at UF.
