Master the capabilities of SciPy and put them to use to solve your numeric and scientific computing problems.

Video Description:

The SciPy Stack is a collection of Open-Source Python libraries finding their application in many areas of technical and scientific computing. It builds on the capabilities of the NumPy array object for faster computations, and contains modules and libraries for linear algebra, signal and image processing, visualization, and much more. Accordingly, gaining a solid working knowledge on some of the basic functionality of the SciPy Stack to solve mathematical models numerically is clearly the first step before one can start using it to tackle large-scale computational projects either in the industry or in the academic world.

This practical course begins with an introduction to the Python SciPy Stack and a coverage of its basic usage cases. You will then delve right into the different functionalities offered by the main modules comprising the SciPy Stack (Numpy, Scipy, and Matplotlib) and see the basics on how they can be implemented in real-life scenarios. You will see how you can make the most of the algorithms in the SciPy Stack to solve problems in linear algebra, numerical analysis, visualization, and much more, including some practical examples drawn from the field of Machine Learning. By the end of this course, you will have all the knowledge you need to take your understanding of the SciPy Stack to a new level altogether, and tackle the trickiest problems in numerical and scientific computational programming with ease and confidence.


What You Will Learn:

  • Get to know the benefits of using the combination of the Python SciPy Stack (NumPy, Scipy, and Matplotlib) as a programming environment for technical and scientific purposes
  • The use of the SciPy Stack in general applications of Engineering and scientific numerical problem solving.
  • The use of the SciPy Stack for solving fundamental basic Machine Learning models.
  • Create and manipulate Numpy array objects to perform numerical computations fast and efficiently.
  • Use of the Scipy library to compute eigenvalues and eigenvectors and apply it to Principal Component Analysis
  • Make use of the SciPy Stack to collect, organize, analyze, and interpret data.
  • Analize linear and non-linear regression problems via gradient descent.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
