About this Unit
In this unit students will gain experience in applying data science skills and using knowledge gained during their bachelor's course of their primary discipline. Students will carry out a real life project transforming data to knowledge under the supervision of an academic mentor. Students will develop a knowledge discovery project proposal and carry out a literature review highlighting the current status of the problem. Assisted by a mentor they will apply the data science skills learned through-out the degree and produce a final discovery project report and/or interactive project tool and give an oral presentation.
