Discover how data science can help us understand environmental change
Environmental and climate change impact our lives, but how what role does data play in informing us about such changes to our world? On this online course, we examine and explore the use of statistics and data science in better understanding the environment we live in.
You will develop data science skills learning from experts and completing hands-on modelling activities using real world environmental data and the powerful programming language R.
You will also consider how data can help plan the use of renewable energy resources such as wind power.
This course is for people with an interest in environment and/or renewable energy and who wish to gain new skills in data science. It will also be suitable for those with an interest in data science and who wish to learn more about applications in environment and renewable energy. You don’t need to be an expert in R to take this course.
To get most out of the course, please download and install R, though you can complete the course without installing R.
