This will help you gain a deeper understanding of your chosen topic as well as gain experience in translating these ideas into practice. 

Find a data set, generate your topic based on the type of dataset and what questions you want to answer from the dataset. The following task need to be performed:

  • Data Selection.
  • Data Preparation tasks
  • Data Exploration and visualization
  • Data Analysis (Explain the Statistical methods) (MS Excel)
  • Discussion and Summarization of the work and results

Your report is base on the hands-on project.
