A Quick Overview

SQL for Data Science Course is designed to take students from a beginner level to advanced level in the field of SQL. The course is covered in a manner so that SQL capabilities can be utilized for extensive data exploration. Each week thoroughly covers the syntax for SQL commands as well as a hands-on session on the RDBMS tool. Data science domain deals with data and results in the form of decisions that can be used to boost various businesses. It is an art of extracting meaningful insights from the available data. SQL is used everywhere from small to big companies. It is a declarative language where focus is on doing rather than how it is performed. Integration with programming languages like R, Python is easy with SQL. Playing with a large dataset is clearly possible with SQL. This course will teach basic select commands to complex cursors by taking real life dataset examples.

Moreover in this course, students work on real time datasets such as analysing consumer behaviour from an ecommerce data set as Project 1 and Career options of Alumni database as Project 2. Both projects deal with real time data sets and give students complete scope for exploration and thorough understanding of SQL.
