About the Data Analytics Industry
Data is everywhere! The Internet of Things (IoT) is not only about attaching sensors to existing objects, but it is also creating
markets for new devices and inventions. IoT has led to exponential growth in the quantities
of data being produced. When the data becomes so vast, fast, or complex for traditional
storage and analytic applications, it is called Big Data. In this program, you will
learn the basics of retrieving and managing big data, analyzing and gaining insight
from it, and visualizing and communicating those insights to allow business to make
informed decisions. Big data analytics is one of the most promising and in-demand career paths for skilled professionals.
The IoT and Big Data Analytics Program at Cañada College
Learn the foundational skills behind data analytics, data science and machine learning.
Here you will interact with a raspberry pie, Google sheets and Python to analyze data
and gain insights. By the end of this program you will learn to program your raspberry
pie to analyze data of people smiling, then train the camera feature to snap pictures
once it detects a smile! If you are thinking of joining the computer science field
and need a place to start, this program is for you.
In this class students will:
- Use Python to create code that reads data from sensors and stores it in a SQL database.
- Visualize, clean, manipulate and integrate data sets.
- Use regression and classification trees to create prediction models.
- Use storytelling to present insights gained from extracted data.
- Build a camera responsive Raspberry Pi
- Earn a CISCO Certification
In Collaboration with CISCO Network Academy
