CIV_ENV 395-0-2: Special Topics in CEE- Data Science for Urban Systems

Quarter Offered

Winter : MWF 10:00-10:50 ; Chen


Data Science in Urban Areas is an undergraduate-level class, which introduces most state-of-the-art data science concepts, techniques and teaches students to select and apply the right algorithms to solve problems.

As an important component of big data processes, data management plays a critical role. Therefore, this undergraduate-level course aims to close the gaps within students’ data science knowledge toolbox. This course will help students to gain the fundamental knowledge and skills they need in data engineering such as its ecosystem, lifecycle, and tools to manage data for implementing data analytics/science and building machine learning models to solve urban systems challenges like optimizing transportation, urban design, and energy portfolios.
