Course Overview

In the Data Visualization for Scientists and Engineers course, students will be exposed to multiple techniques for visualizing data.

There will be two main emphases through the course. First, how to survey and explore data to find gaps, interesting features, and places to explore more fully.

Second, how to create explanatory visualizations that facilitate communications.

The final portion of the course will consist of two hands-on projects in which students will create Jupyter notebooks for exploring and then explaining a scientific data set


This course requires basic proficiency with Python and the scientific Python stack. Some practical experience with Jupyter Notebooks, NumPy (ndarrays), Pandas (DataFrames), and scientific visualization in Python using Matplotlib are essential to working with the code and concepts presented in this course.
