# Introduction to Data Science

A self-paced certificate course on Data Science. Topics like performance metrics, MultiCriteria Decision Making, Artificial Neural Networks, Conventional and Nature-Based Optimization Techniques will be presented with real-life case studies. Practice problems will also be discussed and Weekly Assignments and Monthly Tests will be conducted online.

This self-paced course will also award a certificate on successful completion of all the assignment and tests. Materials on every topic will be emailed which will be usable even after you end the subscription. Although you will miss the updates and the new real-life case studies that will be added in a regular manner to the course if you terminate your subscription.
