In the first block, we offered a R Course. During this course, R was introduced and the students were guided through all the steps needed to process raw data into a (predictive) model. At the end of the course, students improved their analysis capabilities and were able to build their own model. The course was given by data professionals from EY VODW and consisted of 2 sessions.
In this course, EY VODW showed a project which represents their way of working for clients. Students worked with real-life client data based on an actual client-case, to come to solutions by means of different R models and techniques. They discussed subjects like data-repair, data exploration, several forecastmodels (interpretation included), visualizing and R as programming language.
The cost of the R course were 30 euros.
